In a recent interview with 032 magazine, photographer and artist Roe Ethridge discusses an early body of work that examined fugue states—an amnesiac, in-between sense of being. While he’s slowly moved away from this theme, it’s fair to say that Ethridge’s entire oeuvre is itself a fugue state: part commercial photography, part free form photography, always vivid, strange, and brimming with an odd sensuality. His personal photography, inherently conceptual, seems to seep into his commercial work, while the latter makes its way into the former too, sometimes quite literally. It’s a symbiotic exchange that ultimately forms a referential narrative, both humorous and thoughtful.
