by
9/23/14 Posted 9/23/14

Sandro Miller, David Bailey / Mick Jagger "Fur Hood" (1964), 2014 Photographer Sandro Miller just face swapped 35 seminal photographs with John Malkovich's face. Get it? John Malkovich is one of the greatest actors of all time who can convincingly embody any role like no other. The only thing more shocking about seeing Malkovich's face on John Lennon's naked body is that no one has done it before. Brilliant. The forthcoming exhibition, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, is not just a creepy tribut... [more]

20120413000033-01__41112 The Subtle Perspective  
by
Jin Lee at Devening Projects + Editions April 22nd, 2012 - June 2nd, 2012
Posted 5/4/12

As the title suggests, subtle contradictions frame Jin Lee's current show, The Near and the Far at the Devening Project Space. There is always the stark contrast of interior vs. exterior at Devening: the dilapidation of West Carroll that secrets the crisp clean whiteness of the gallery. Lee's photographs soften, yet continue this contrast, playing stark against serene, universality against specificity, and yes, near against the distant far. The works are immaculately installed in the solely dedicated... [more]

Originally posted on ArtLetter.com BY PAUL KLEIN ON FEBRUARY 2, 2012 5:08 PM There's a lot of new talent emerging on the Chicago art scene, right now; talent that is art-historically knowledgeable and relevant.

Back in 2002, John Allen Muhammad, the “Washington Sniper,” captivated the country through his brief months of infamy as he made his way with his young accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo on a long and winding road from Washington state, through the Southwest and Deep South, to Maryland and Washington, D.C. gunning down twenty-seven random victims with his rifle. In 2005, photographer Joel W. Fisher retraced Muhammad’s journey, shooting with his camera the depopulated sites of the killer’s deeds. Leaving as... [more]

hen Water Street Studios first opened in its temporary space near the corner of Water Street and Wilson in Batavia, IL, my mind was filled with preconceptions about the art that would be on display. Having attended various art fairs in the western suburbs, I assumed the art of Water Street would be more of the same: nature photography, realistic paintings, and predictable abstraction. Upon entering I was taken aback. What was once my hometown’s candy store had become a space containing striking me... [more]

What a Picture, What a Photograph

Henri Cartier-Bresson's first photojournalistic assignment was the 1937 coronation of England’s King George VI. He took no pictures of the King. His photographs, published in the French weekly Regards, were of the adoring crowds lining the streets. Widely regarded as the father of modern photojournalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson, is to photography what Beckett is to theatre or Matisse is to painting. From his early adoption of the hand held camera to being a founding member of the Magnum Photos co... [more]
