For those in New York, Ron Jude will be signing his new book Fires at ICP-Bard MFA studios this Friday at 5pm. Fires seamlessly weaves together the disparate strands of his three-part look at his childhood home of central Idaho. Pulling equal parts from Alpine Star (2006), emmett (2010), and Lick Creek Line (2012), Jude fleshes out the consistent tone and crossover between what appear to be three incongruent projects. An aging fur trapper, a young man on the threshold of adulthood in the early 1980s, and an entire community (as represented by a weekly newspaper) converge through the repeating motif of a woodland landscape.
ICP-Bard MFA Studios are located at at 24–20 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City. Take the E or M to 23rd Street-Ely Avenue, or the 7 or G train to Court Square.
Ron is amongst the group of ten photographers who have responded to the idea - LOST HOME - with a bookwork published by SUPERLABO Japan, to be launched at Paris Photo in November.
