ALI KATE CHERKIS

'Gunnison'  

The Arch is happy to present New York based photographer Ali Kate Cherkis. She has worked with The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and various other publications. Besides creating bodies of work that have an overall theme, Cherkis collects single photos that she makes based on her thoughts and keeps them in her Diary. As a stream of consciousness, it shows how she processes and meditates on what’s happening in her life and how that manifests in her work. To her, the photo presented here is about play and firmly grounding oneself in the present. A brief moment of tapping into our childlike selves, opening each eye one at a time to see what pops up in the distance. “Like a be-here-now whack-a-mole,” says Cherkis. “Bare shapes appearing and vanishing and appearing again.”
