The present moment is passing. In 48 black and white images, American photographer Andrea Modica offers hints towards the unanswerable question of what we so easily forget to observe about the present tense while we wait expectantly for the future. She presents us with partial nudes, unknown faces offering us an expression we can’t quite read, dead animals, scenes from an everyday life. Something seems to be happening outside the frame, always, but she’s pulled us in too closely to see what we’re missing, or even what we’re looking at with any clarity. Modica portrays moments of small stillness, experienced richly. Sensuous without being sentimental, the images are printed with luscious detail. As We Wait was curated by renowned photographer Larry Fink.
