Andy Freeberg


Opening just last week at Danziger Projects in New York City is the highly talked about photographic series “Sentry,” by artist Andy Freeberg. The series characterizes the New York Art world through its intentional distance and lack of humility. The artist has stated, “It was an odd moment when I walked into that first gallery in Chelsea and saw a large white desk with a head poking up from the top edge of the computer screen. I set my camera, carefully framing and exposing the scene, and the head never moved or took notice of my gaze…” Freeberg’s work is interested in the intersection of art, architecture, and environment especially in its relation to human presence. The artist began his career as a photojournalist completing assignments for Rolling Stone, TIME, and Fortune magazine. The “Sentry” series was recently used for the novel “Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him.” The artist’s work, though not often shown in a gallery setting, has been acclaimed by critics and was selected as the lead images in a recent show curated by Charlotte Cotton, the new director of photography for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
