Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2022

Long warm nights, pink summer light and road trips with the windows down. The new series of photographs, Summer Grows Faint by James Needham captures those last glorious days of the artist’s favorite season. The end of summer is a universal reflection point—a time to take stock of warm-day adventures and dream up those in seasons to come. Needham masterfully captures the richness of that experience in these photographs, imbuing them with the countless miles traversed and the salt-laced air growing thick the closer you get to the coast.

“There’s a limited amount of space within a viewfinder or on a canvas and what someone chooses to fill it with says so much about them and what they were feeling at the time. It’s like a Rorschach test we create ourselves.”
