Desnuda ante la Camara  
7/30/14 Posted 7/30/14

Inspirada en el maestro de la fotografia surrealista Man Ray El poder de esta de colección de desnudos, está en su sutileza, que sólo acentúa la relación intrínsecamente cargada entre la cámara y el cuerpo.

Mapplethorpe: Very Eighties   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Robert Mapplethorpe at Grand Palais March 26th, 2014 - July 13th, 2014
Posted 4/21/14

At a certain point as I was walking around the Mapplethorpe exhibition I thought, “You know something? I really don’t like Robert Mapplethorpe.” This was during the first half of the show where most of the work was in his "nude portraiture" mode. I mean, I can appreciate the formality of it all—the lines and triangles, neat, original compositions, the sculptural references. But there’s just something in the gelatin-silver-shininess of it; it all seems too slick, t... [more]

Light on a Surface   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
Garry Winogrand at SFMOMA - San Francisco Museum of Modern Art March 9th, 2013 - June 2nd, 2013
Posted 3/24/13

It’s hard to clear one’s head of all the preconceived notions and packaged analyses about an artist before going to meet their work for the first time. I made the mistake of reading other reviews before seeing Garry Winogrand’s photographs at SFMOMA (where I’m counting the days until it shutters for redevelopment, and I’ll be left a few old friends shy). One included a particularly barfy comparison of his New York period in the 1960s to the popular television program Mad Men. On the first pass, they... [more]

Evocative/Titillating Photography  
Irene Kai at Found Gallery June 8th, 2008 - June 30th, 2008
Posted 6/14/08

Irene Kai's What Do You See? isn't worth missing. The photographs are titillating to see the least. The images online don't do the work justice. Ask the curator to see the original color prints – they have them hidden away in the backroom. They are absolutely gorgeous. [more]
