Araki: An Exhibitionist Looking Death in the Eye   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Nobuyoshi Araki at Foam - Fotografie Museum December 19th - March 11th, 2015
Posted 12/22/14

In the film After Life (1998) by Kore-eda Hirokazu the recently deceased end up on a minimalist film set. In this purgatory they discuss and improvise with their fellow travelers until they have decided on the ultimately defining moment of their lives. They re-enact it and then pass over to whatever paradise or nothingness may be waiting for them. One by one the dead come to terms with what they’ve left behind. Except for one, who can’t decide. That guy could have been Nobuyoshi Araki.... [more]

A Photographer Captures a Dying Tradition at the Del Mar Racetrack   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 12/16/14

New York based photographer Eric Chakeen (a former assistant to Ryan McGinley) shared some of his shots from his latest project, And Away They Go, which documents the life at the Del Mar racetrack—a place Chakeen visited often growing up in San Diego. Here, the photographer gives ArtSlant his personal perspective on the complex social atmosphere at one of California's most historic sports venues. The Del Mar racetrack opened in 1937. It was a huge part of Hollywood in its halcyon days. Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby were frequent vi... [more]

In Pictures: Rio's Baile Funk Culture   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/9/14

Baile Funk and Rio De Janeiro are inseperable kin; the unmistakable bassline sounds thump over the hillside favelas of the city, most of which have been pacified as part of a governmental iniative that began in 2008. From Rocinha to Cantagalo each Baile has its own particular flavor, an intense mix of sex, rhythm and hedonism. It's not just the unmistakable "Um Cha Cha Um Cha" that is an intergral part of Rio, but its ambience and aesthetics, that epitomize in many ways the Brazilian spirit. French photographer Vincent Rosenbl... [more]

BBC to Broadcast "The Art That Hitler Hated"  
by

In 2012, Bavarian Police raided a pensioner's apartment in Munich. There, they discovered 1,000 paintings by artists such as Klee, Chagall, Monet, Picasso, and Matisse—painting missing since the Nazi era, when many significant works were looted from Jewish homes with the intention of relocating them for display in Hitler's Führermuseum: a super-museum of Ayran approved art, with a wing dedicated to the infamous "degenerate art,"­ abhorred by Hitler. The artworks were kept hidden f... [more]

The Other Side of Fashion Week

Congrats to my very talented friends, Salome Oggenfuss and Sandra Isacsson and their crew for their "The Other Side Of Fashion Week" documentary - a compassionate, fascinating, and amusing exploration of the offbeat, outerskirts side of Fashion Week. I've shot fashion week at Bryant Park in NYC before and always found some of the most interesting stories on the sidelines, with the quirky photographers. In a great spotlight on this film in Dazed and Confused Magazine, the fashion photographers... [more]

Displacements: the real and surreal photographs of Kati Horna   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Kati Horna at Jeu de Paume June 3rd - September 21st
Posted 6/30/14

Despite being at the forefront of documentary photography during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s and the Mexican Surrealist movement of the 1940s, Hungarian-born Kati Horna (née Deutsch) has remained relatively unknown outside of her adopted country of Mexico. Yet the art world has an ever-growing appetite for unearthing overlooked or forgotten perspectives that wind alongside the dominant Western masculine narratives of the twentieth century, and Horna is a perfect candidate. The focu... [more]

Pablo Bartholomew: Time Regained   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Pablo Bartholomew at Sakshi Gallery (Mumbai) April 5th - May 2nd
Posted 4/18/14

Pablo Bartholomew’s The Calcutta Diaries at Sakshi Gallery takes you back in time: literally, through photographs taken in the city in the ‘70s, and artistically, from a time when photojournalism was a hallmark of magazines like LIFE and National Geographic. Its transition today into the gallery space elicits two stories, one of a lost Calcutta—its very name has changed—and one of the place for contemporary photojournalistic photography itself. In an age of pre-digital dissem... [more]

Fall Preview – Photography in New York City  
by
9/9/13 Posted 9/9/13

The quantity, caliber and diversity of photography exhibitions in New York City this fall is remarkable. For students of the medium a curriculum could be developed and if I were tasked with building the syllabus I would start with the youngest generation and click backwards. Geographically speaking, that would mean beginning in the Lower East Side, passing through Chelsea and a few uptown galleries, before concluding at the Metropolitan Museum. Is it coincidence that the exhibitions become increasi... [more]

by
4/13/13 Posted 3/22/13

Robert Adanto's Pearls on the Ocean Floor is a thought-provoking, feature-length documentary examining the lives and works of Iranian female artists living and working in and outside the Islamic Republic. This unflinching and incisive study, featuring interviews with art luminaries Shadi Ghadirian, Shirin Neshat, Parastou Forouhar and others, captures the uncertainty of this momentous time in Iran's history. Speaking with grace and honesty, these brave women express what is seldom seen in western me... [more]

Smuggling Kif   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Seba Kurtis at The Wayward Gallery April 5th, 2013 - April 14th, 2013
Posted 4/11/13

When James Edson, owner of Mowlem Street’s Wayward Gallery, was first told about Seba Kurtis’ new book, Kif, little deliberation was needed upon deciding whether or not to show Kurtis’ collection of illuminating photographic work. After reading less than a paragraph from the accompanying book, James became entirely convinced by the heartfelt tale of two migrant friends caught up in the gruelling business of smuggling drugs. Kif, in what is the Wayward gallery’s first show of 2013, presents a st... [more]
