Bruce Wrighton
Basement, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Binghamton NY

1986

$8,000

About

Bruce Wrighton is known for his powerful and uniquely American color images taken between 1986 and 1988 in and around Binghamton, New York. These included street portraits, tavern and diners, courtrooms, church interiors, and cityscapes. He produced a singular body of work that is a unique document of a slice of America. Binghamton was formerly a thriving industrial city. IBM was founded there. But by the 1980’s it had fallen on hard times. Bruce Wrighton sensitively captured its former dignity, while to the casual onlooker it would appear as merely worn out and tired. In the basement of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, proudly standing under a floating Christ figure, he discovered a 1955 Wurlitzer jukebox. Despite its age and broken glass, it still glowed its majestic blue and red lights, while offering tunes from the Beatles to Sinatra.
