Photograph Mag, Sept/Oct Issue
Like a fault line in the surface of appearances, photo collage opens up in periods of social stress and political obfuscation. In the 1880s, the playful cut and paste of Victorian albums betrayed a skepticism about photography’s ability to sustain memory and maintain the connection to a tradition that technology was rapidly effacing.
In the 1920s and ‘30s, collage mobilized images against themselves, recombining th... [more]

by Alexandra Chipkin
On the evening of August 13th Guilmi seemed to be waking up. A cacophony of voices could be heard as townspeople and visitors gathered in a small piazza to listen to stories beingread aloud from inside a van. Later this van was opened up to reveal photographs lining the inside of the car: forming a small gallery. This gallery is in fact the perfect size for this town of no more than 200 people. The exhibition is called Avanzi, or leftovers. It is the result of about three we... [more]

YOU PEOPLE by johnwilkes The Fairman Family at ARTHOUSE1
August 1st - August 28th
It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come puts forth a unique take on Moholy-Nagy's painted work with the incorporation of two interventionist pieces by other creators and a smattering of his own theatrical and photographic works. Due to the technology-based works’ expense and inherent complications, Moholy-Nagy reinvestigated painting as a medium to explore light and optics, while still drawing inspiration from these periodic experiments with other media. Perhaps somewhat mi... [more]

Contemporary art discourse constantly refers to the male gaze as it stays trained on a female body: longing, projecting, mapping, invading. But when the male gaze turns inwards, towards its host male body, not... [more]
NEW YORK PHOTO DIARY, JUNE 24 2015 - Catherine Troiano
Last Wednesday, Klompching Gallery re-opened in their new location at 89 Water Street, DUMBO.

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”.

Tributes have been pouring in upon the announcement of the passing of Mary Ellen Mark (1940–2015), who died at home, aged 75, on Monday after suffering from myelodysplastic syndrome.
“She was so young at heart,” portrait photographer Martin Schoeller was quoted in Time as saying. “She was also the most courageous photographer, never taking no for an answer, always trying to achieve her vision at all costs.”
Although her work carried across a broad canvas includi... [more]
Art or Not? Do you ever get the feeling when you enter a gallery that you just don't get it? Does the press release befuddle you? Sometimes it seems that the art world is a big ruse, making the most of that fear of the equivocal. Every week, we invite you to raise an ironic eyebrow and identify the accidental impostor of the two images below.
This week: sandy beach—or a sabulous installation?
The focus of this year's Biennale is the implicit structures and constraints of the Biennale as an int... [more]

Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey
Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities.
Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]
Angie Davey, Creative Director of Eyestorm UK, introduces the work and talks more about the series below.
New York based French photographer Carine Magescas’ minimal seascapes are inspired by the vast open beaches of California.
Something that first attracted me to Carine Magescas’ beautiful photographic works was their overwhelming sense of calm and openness. As a fellow beach-lover and appreciator of vast open spaces - Carine became submerged by the immenseness of the... [more]
