Caroll Taveras: Duality

The Photographer’s Eye-Teasing Diptychs Put the Onus on the Viewer

Photography goes stereo at New York's F.L.O.A.T. gallery with Duality, Caroll Taveras’s series of large-format landscapes that quietly provoke questions of perception and truth. Shot in a string of sun-faded locales from Bolivian salt flats to rural Italy, the pairs of photographs shuttle the viewer between almost-identical vistas in which minor events seem to come and go. “I thought a lot about relationships, mainly romantic relationships and how the struggle within them will usually come down to this idea of duality,” explains Taveras, who recognized that linking her shots suggested a story of their own. “We each see our own views and realities without necessarily standing where others are and understanding what they see.” The Brooklyn-based artist, whose work has featured in TIME, The Guardian Weekend Magazine, Wallpaper*, The New York Times T Magazine and COLORS, founded F.L.O.A.T. Gallery in 2010 with Meagan Ziegler-Haynes. Moving to a different location for each show, F.L.O.A.T. (Four Legs of a Table) has occupied dilapidated spaces throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn with their site-specific exhibits. “We’re a bit more organic than a traditional gallery,” says Ziegler-Haynes. “It’s about offering an accessible and open environment.”
