Todd Eberle, obsessed with technology from childhood, has explored the subject in its many forms and phases. From his series of images of vintage computers, wired, shown in 1999, it was a natural trajectory to visit and photograph CERN, the most advanced science experiment in history. This photograph is a study of the bewildering scale and magnitude of just one of four massive caverns that house the large hadron collider. Buried 300 feet below ground and connected by a 17-mile tunnel traversing the border of Switzerland and France, the experiment when active makes the caverns inaccessible to all human beings. What appears to be a set for a science fiction film is actually much stranger than fiction due to its very real function.

Eberle subverts this complex and extraordinarily scaled environment into a pop-colored, gridded abstract composition.

Todd Eberle is an acclaimed New York City-based photographer whose work is united by a clean and analytical minimalist aesthetic. Eberle's subjects run the gamut from political, art, and cultural figures to architectural landmarks and technology. He has worked as photographer-at-large at Vanity Fair since 1998 and has had solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, WPS1/MoMA/The Clocktower, and Tate Modern.

Eberle gained international recognition for his photographs of Donald Judd's art and furniture that he took at the great sculptor's Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and elsewhere around the world in the 1990s. Informed by this experience, Eberle's photographs are characterized by an ever-presence sense of control, proportion, and symmetry. His celebrity portraits are notable for their witty eye for design, and his architectural photographs have been praised by the curator Joseph P. Rosa for "proposing fresh ways of seeing, thinking about, and interpreting architecture" and for transforming "the figurative into the abstract." In almost every photo, rich colors—almost too vibrant to believe—grip the viewer's attention.

In his recently published monograph Empire of Space (Rizzoli, 2011), Eberle pairs disparate photographs from throughout his 30-year career to create thought-provoking juxtapositions. Dave Hickey, the eminent art critic, writes in his accompanying essay: "There is always a heartless little sting in these images, a frisson of worldly dissonance, like Degas in a newspaper."Read Less
