Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh, Meditations: Flora
Charles Ives’ Unanswered Question is an organizational metaphor for Michael Bogdannfy-Kriegh’s work. The music has three parts; a continuous hum or “music of the spheres;” a poser of the question; a chorus trying, unsuccessfully, to answer the question. His photographic practice is a meditative dipping into the hum, a stream of observations. From this stream he makes images and assemblages, which are not definitive questions or answerers, just meditations on the hum.
Bio: Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh’s work has been shaped through a daily meditative walk and writing practice during which he photographs whatever compels him. His work has appeared in several exhibitions, including Welcome: Page by Page, an exhibit of artist books curated by Hannah Frieser at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, and the 21st Annual Juried Show: Peter Urban Legacy Exhibition, juried by Jim Casper, at the Griffin Museum of Photography, Winchester MA. His photographs have been published in Shots Magazine issue #129 and issue #130, the annual portfolio edition. He is a self trained photographer living and working in Beacon, NY. Formally trained as an architect, he made the decision to focus exclusively on his photography work in 2013.
