"By pointing the lens at something, I am asking a question, and the photograph is sometimes the answer." – Lisette Model

Ivory & Black Soho proudly presents “Sometimes the Answer”, a new show by Cheryl Dunn, which will be the debut exhibition of the new gallery in London's Soho. The exhibition will feature a wide range of photographs from Dunn’s 30 years of signature documentation. In the artist’s words, “At first it may seem ambiguous, but I think it is timely…given the political climate in the world and our inundation with media, collective sanity is very difficult. Nothing is cut and dry, so the answer needs to come from within.

When I feel insane, I head to the streets.” Dunn lets her photographic instinct guide this selection of  work, inviting the viewer to draw their own conclusions, revise their opinions, or see things in a new  light. “I’m a huntress, only I hunt for images, and that’s how I approach shooting ” The works are united by Dunn’s uncanny ability to keep her finger on the pulse of contemporary American youth. The exhibition will be accompanied by the release of a limited edition artist’s book of Dunn’s photographs.

Cheryl Dunn lives and works in New York City and across the world. An accomplished filmmaker and  photographer, her work has been exhibited at various galleries and museums, including Deitch Projects  in New York, The Tate Modern in London, and the "Art in the Streets" exhibition at the Geffen Contemporary MOCA. Her films have played at numerous film festivals including Tribeca, Edinburgh, Rotterdam, Los Angeles and Havana, as well as on PBS. Dunn was one of the subjects of the landmark documentary, book and travelling museum exhibition, “Beautiful Losers”. She has had two books of her photographs published – “Bicycle Gangs of New York” and “Some Kinda Vocation”. Most recently, Dunn is finishing up a full-length feature film documenting New York City’s preeminent street photographers, titled “Everybody Street”.
