Louis Nardo | Eo Ipso

The series of photos presented on POBA show Nardo’s reverence for the thing itself (“eo ipso”) - the simple objects of day-to-day life that under his eye and camera are captured with astonishing brilliance, relief, and vividness. Nardo had the ability to stand still, see what one misses in the daily rush of life, frame and see these objects in unique relief, and elevate them to reveal the unrecognized beauty in front of our eyes, invisible but for the looking more closely, but for the pause in our path that allows us to see what he saw.
