David Zimmerman, One Voice


Over the past two decades, American photographer David Zimmerman’s art has come to focus on endangered landscapes and cultures displaced by environmental, social, economic and political causes. One Voice, on view at Sous Les Etoiles Gallery in New York, is an ongoing project that began in 2011. For the past six years, David Zimmerman has lived and worked amongst Tibetan refugees in Northern India, creating a series of intimate portraits. Photographing the exile is to make a state of the time. It is the time that passes and also the time which resists, which never ceases to address its question, its anger, its refusal, its energy of survival. David Zimmerman said: “One Voice is the story of a people’s struggle to adapt and survive in a new reality. For those who seem to have lost everything though, the soul remains inseparable, and history, and their past, is unchangeable.” Yet, those portraits are far from sad, instead they translate a strength, beauty and dignity. “Beauty works by joining form and subject matter. David’s photographs create an intensified experience of both texture and depth, and these modalities of experience are found in both the image itself and the subject being portrayed” commented Robert Hariman, author of the preface of the coinciding book published by Kehrer Verlag.
