Through a blend of portraiture and landscapes, Elliot Ross’s series “American Backyard” looks at the complex reality of Americans who live along the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the physical separation heavily disturbs lives, it has also engendered a quiet camaraderie. Ross says the wall is not “this divisive thing. Within the national discourse it is, but once you get to the borderland and meet the people who live with borders as part of their daily life…rather than it being a divisive issue, it’s one that brings people together in opposition.” Hit the link in our bio to see more of Ross’s work on #PDNPOTD.

“Recipes for the Mind” is a new book by photographer and conceptual artist Charles Lindsay that combines images he’s made throughout his career with poetic texts written in response to the photographs. The images are newly manipulated, and they combine with the texts to create a trippy journey through decades of Lindsay’s creative ideas and inspiration.

Serrah Russell began making collages in 2016 after Donald Trump was elected president of the U.S. “Shocked and angry,” as she writes in the introduction to her new book, “tears tears,” she turned to her studio practice to channel her grief. Soon, she was “transforming each day’s experience into a nightly collage.” The work in “tears tears” is the result of reconstructing the news and the outrage, the sadness and fear, of the 45th presidency into a single collage 100 times in a row. The daily routine “became an act of meditation, a ritual for reflection and a place to speak,” writes Russell. Follow the link in our bio to see images from her book on #PDNPOTD.

This “self-portrait” depicting photographer Ryan Schude and his wife, Agatha, at home in their kitchen is part of Schude’s second solo show of his intricate tableau photographs. “The liquid is melted down mint chip ice cream to match the color of the breadbox and my shirt,” Schude told PDN. “As for how I felt taking the drink in my face—it was a ton of fun! Each time you do it you get vastly different results, so there is a new surprise waiting for you on the monitor after every shot.” Hit the link in our bio to read more of our conversation with Schude and see more of the work in the exhibition, which is up through the end of the year @bggallery.
