Isaac Layman — Paradise

In a few short years, Isaac Layman (b. 1977) has established himself as an exceptional talent. In Paradise, Layman expands his practice of constructing large-scale, psychologically charged photographic-based visions of the spaces and objects found in his Seattle home. His most recent photographic constructions explore the desire to fabricate escapes, destinations, and monuments and the role discontent plays in driving the need to create imagined perfection.
