Jack Hanley Gallery is pleased to present a solo show by Mischa Richter “I Live Here”. The exhibition is based on Richter’s strong memories and attachment to Provincetown and the idiosyncratic characters, buildings and relationship to the water that inhabit this village.

 

Richter recreates his environment and its community through photographs, transplanting his surroundings: part of his own studio walls, the photo series “457” ( house number of his grandfather). His grandfather was an artist and cartoonist - and the wooden floors of his house create a space that is manifested in the mind rather than geographical coordinates. The installation explores the specificity and intensity of his connection to this town that has changed and morphed dramatically.

 

Mischa Richter has shown his work in London and Provincetown and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. He was born in Windsor, England but spent most of his childhood in Provincetown, Massachustes. He studied art at The Chelsea College of Art and Design and Middlesex University both in London, England. After leaving University he began a career in editorial photography and has been published in magazines such as Esquire, Vogue, The New York Times Magazine, Wallpaper and Vibe.
