ROSEGALLERY is pleased to present Her First Meteorite, two installments of selected unique photographic collages and process-based photographic prints.  In the first installment, the found, sliced and assembled collages of Carolle BenitahJames GallagherMelinda GibsonKen GravesStéphanie SolinasAnnegret Soltau, and Grete Stern employed a spontaneity of discovery and combination that counters the intricacy of the details in the works.  Volume two experiments with light sensitivities on unconventional photographic papers, repurposing salvaged negatives and re-photographic practices. Dirk Braeckman, James Gallagher, Melinda Gibson & Thomas Sauvin, Ken Graves, Yoko Kanayama, Summer Mann and Sebastian Riemer all employ an alternative approach to questioning the identity of the visuals presented.  Both installments challenge the boundaries of the medium of photography by allowing the works to enter the world of the surreal.
