In his second solo exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery, Stephen Spiller presents photographs in the exhibition Street Scenes. The pieces involve social, political, and cultural themes that offer a window into understanding how contemporary life is shaped and lived. He explores those themes by focusing on drivers of individual passions as well as on manifestations of such passion originating from unstated, suppressed, or otherwise hidden events. Spiller states, “Understanding who we are as individuals in large measure determines how we behave collectively as a society. My work is documentary as well as conceptual and offers both social and political commentary.”
