  • The photographs of Paul Mpagi Sepuya (b. 1982, San Bernardino, CA) explore the relationship between the subject and photographer to a degree arguably previously unseen in photography. His works often add layers of temporality in their use of printouts of previously taken photos within his studio. Cropped limbs and partially hidden bodies force the viewer to question which degree of recency in the studio is being represented. Central to Mpagi Sepuya’s practice is the depiction the male form. He shows a clear awareness of his forebears, such as Mapplethorpe and Brassaï, but expounds upon them, bringing the medium to a decidedly contemporary vantage point. Mpagi Sepuya is certainly having a moment: he had a number of works presented in the Whitney Biennial, currently has a presentation of his work in “Mapplethorpe Now” at the Guggenheim, on view until January 5th, 2020, and was in a recent group exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, “Personal Private Public.”
This work, “Figure (_2020896)” (2017) is an archival pigment print, measuring 32 x 24 inches (81.3 x 61 cm). It is an edition of 5 plus 2 AP’s. Mpagi Sepuya is represented by Susanne Vielmetter (Los Angeles) and Team Gallery (New York). .
