Photography // Wednesday, April 01, 2015
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of large-scale photographs from Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s ongoing East of Eden series.

Identifying a parallel between the financial collapse and the biblical Book of Genesis in terms of an “ensuing loss of innocence,” East of Eden consists of singular, at times disparate images of people and events after “the fall,” unified by a pervading sense of disillusionment.
