Seller: Archy LaSalle

Offered: 20 x 24 digital color archival print, MASADA, 2011. Unframed. -- Archy LaSalle, photographer

Archy says: This photograph was taken in Israel, from the ancient fortress of Masada, looking out towards the Dead Sea.  I went to Masada last March and was overwhelmed at the beauty of this place. The spirit of those who fled Jerusalem after the destruction of the Second Temple by the Roman army was almost palpable there. Their courageous stance and the tragic fate of these people, who preferred death in the fortress of Masada to slavery in the Roman Empire, was both humbling and incredibly moving. I love to photograph the ruins of history that are both our physical and spiritual pasts.
 
My time with Terri, walking in the Moors in Devon, was magical, and I would love to offer this photograph in appreciation of her.

Archy LaSalle received a Bachelor of Art degree in Photography with honors from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1982. Early in his career, Mr. LaSalle received national and international attention for his artistic documentation of the M.B.T.A. Orange Line Southwest Corridor subway system project in Boston. He was awarded an artist's residency at the Foundation Karolyi in Vence, France. His work in France subsequently earned him a residency at Cite Internationale des Artes in Paris. In 2007, he was the recipient of an ART grant from The Philanthropic Initiative for a photographic project in South Africa. His work has been exhibited in Boston at the Museum of Fine Arts, Photographic Resource Center, Boston Architectural Center, Panopticon Gallery, and the DeCordova Musuem.

You are not too late! The auction ends Thursday, Dec. 15th at 8 p.m. New York City time, which is, I believe Friday Dec. 16th at 1:00 a.m. in London.

So do check in before you go to bed, to make sure you haven't been outbid -- and good luck!

You must, however, include your e-dress in the body of text of your comment, so we can contact you if you win. Thanks, Helen!
