Michael Borek's images have been appearing in quite a number of venues lately.
Two of Michael Borek’s photographs were selected by the curator Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell for the exhibition Country, Home, in the Cue Art Foundation on 137 West 25th Street, New York, NY 10001. The exhibition will be held on September 5 – October 10, 2015, and the opening reception is on Saturday, September 12, 6-8pm. The gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm. In her curator’s essay, Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell wrote the following about Michael Borek photographs: “Borek’s scenes vigorously bring the viewer out of America and into his place of communist, often bleak, origin. His series of captured fences and the title ‘And They Make Good Neighbors’ considers boundaries, belonging, relationships in a direct engagement with the tension of looking in and looking out. His tightly cropped frames limit the contextualization of the scene depicted so often that the viewer doesn’t know if they are looking out or looking in.”
Michael Borek’s photography was also recently covered by Life Force Magazine, an online magazine which celebrates the art-form of the photo-essay.
