Caleb Cain Marcus uses his art to create a sense of wonder, mystery, transcendence, and re-enchantment. Achieved through sensitive employment of color, light, and atmospheric conditions, Caleb defines and describes the physicality of space among living things.
Caleb’s photography references rationalism and intellectualism dominating our perception of reality, ultimately leading to a slow disenchantment of the world. Goddess (2015) follows the Ganges River to show space as it connects people, land, rivers, oceans, mountains, animals, gods, goddesses and the firmament. A Portrait of Ice (2012) investigates glacial landscapes. The Silent Aftermath of Space (2010) captures images of a desolate New York City and includes a foreword by Robert Frank.
Public collections include; Getty Museum, LA; Met Museum, NY; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Houston; and High Museum of Art, Atlanta. He holds an MFA from Columbia University.
Caleb Cain Marcus was born beneath Wilson Peak in the mountains of Colorado. He lives & works in New York City.
