Silent City: Conrad Clifton
Conrad Clifton is a Brooklyn based photographer and electronic artist. Recently COOPH caught up with him in December at his group show Phase IV. His works, along with Austance Caroline and Lea Wulferth, were on display. The location, a historic underground gym in the basement of a Bushwick church called Gymopedie, brought the works together in a unified, comprehensive manner. The show's slogan was, "New York Ain't dead while we're all still living. We're still making things and want to share a piece of art, an idea, a moment with you.”
Conrad's photographs displayed in the exhibition, are apart of a larger project, resulting in his photo book debut, “Silent City.” Conrad states, “SILENT CITY is named after the second song from my album, ‘Get Your Whole Life.’ The theme is of self-reflection. Taking a moment - once all the commotion of a vibrant metropolitan melting pot has become quiet and calm - to reflect on our similarities as humans on this rock, rather than our differences. It’s about empathy. Practice it.”
