PEOPLE USED TO ACCUSE Michael Eastman of being “more of a painter than a photographer.” He took it as a criticism. But lately, the 62-year-old artist said, he’s realized “That’s who I am.”
Eastman’s luscious depictions of decaying rooms, from the grand to the vernacular, will be on view May 7 through June 30 at Barry Friedman, Ltd. in Chelsea.
“Interiors” includes work from four Eastman series: Italy, Cuba, Vanished America, and Urban Luminosity.
I need say no more. Just look at these pictures.
