The End of Pictures is the phrase Steve Gladstone repeatedly scribed on a collection of his favorite photographs. These images were often hand-colored with markers, scrawled on with stories, and redacted with sharpies, transforming them into narrative paintings. Through these images, he explains and relives the journey of capturing the photo, while simultaneously creating a captivating visual language of color and mark-making. It’s at once a statement about the lost art of photography, and a window into three decades of life synthesized into a poetic epilogue.
*The complete End of Pictures collection includes over 100 images.
“The End of Pictures is about the end of an era, my era. It’s about letting the pictures go. It’s about knowing that life really is short. The End of Pictures is my death before I die. It’s a 25 year old Tibetan sand painting.” — Steve Gladstone
