Foam presents Shelter Island, the newest work of Roe Ethridge (1969, US). At the eastern end of Long Island, New York, the photographer turned to his family and the characteristically American ‘Kit House’ they rented for the summer of 2015. There he became fascinated by a range of stored away possessions from the homeowners and their children.

Employing an array of classic photographic genres – from portraiture to still life to landscape – Ethridge captures his subjects and surrounding environment in intimate detail. The artist combines the glossy effect of commercial photography with the sensitivity of fine art photography. The outcome is a body of work that is both familiar and uncanny, and nostalgic as well as contemporary.
