An exhibition of photographs by the husband and wife team, Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez. Ranging from representational to painterly abstractions, these images call attention to the natural process of converting water to salt at two ancient salt collection sites in Yucatan, Mexico. The artists will be at the opening for a book signing of their recent publication, Fried Waters, by Nazraeli Press.

Del Valle and Gomez have received critical acclaim for their photographic essay, From the Ground Up, which explores the metamorphosis of the vernacular of domestic architecture of the Yucatan Peninsula. Images from this series were included in the inaugural exhibition at MoMA when it reopened last year and will be featured in a show at Yancey Richardson Gallery, opening Sept. 24.
