Posted 9/25/12

you are in brooklyn, no, not that brooklyn. we are talking about the real brooklyn that you can never fully know. concrete, cars, people, and places form an abstract pattern of unruly democracy. like an islamic tile if such a thing could be ugly. in this brooklyn, in a tiny garage, reside monumental pictures of otherwise imperceptible details. you are also in gilgo beach and it's bright. you are also alice, but you are not in wonderland. you have not grown small but the impressions you are confronted wi...

by

Posted 9/24/12

           Over the past fifteen years, the “Ocean Parkway Serial Killer” targeted sex workers along this stretch of roadway, ultimately burying them at Gilgo Beach.  It is this series of events that Nick Kline examines in his exhibit, Gilgo Beach.  In a sterilized, clinical gallery space, the track lighting of a traditional gallery replaced with fluorescents, floor covered in stains that contrast the whiteness of the walls, Kline’s detailed, large-scale photographs create the air of a laborat...

(Image: Arvind Garg,  Central Park, New York, 2006, Archival pigment print; © Arvind Garg)   Arvind Garg (b. 1946, Punjab, India) For me the urge to make photographs, first and foremost, is to discover for myself the beauty and the mystery of the visual world in which I live. The twenty-five years  I have spent photographing have been devoted to refining my vision and improving my practice of the craft that helps create a photographic print. The universe is not constant, and light, which... [more]

Posted 6/28/12

NORTH KOREA BEYOND IMAGES by Shota Ogawa Military marches, missiles on display, and elite leaders in dark green “workers’ clothes”: images of North Korea seem ubiquitous in our media culture. Yet the opacity of the reclusive country continues to work up a thirst for more images. Photojournalistic exhibitions promise to sooth our thirst with intimate ‘inside views’ of North Korea, but giving visibility to an already hypervisible subject can only aggravate our thirst. POWER GAMES, currently in view in NOo... [more]

by
Josephine Sacabo, Dalt Wonk at OPEN HOUSE GALLERY October 26th, 2012 - October 27th, 2012
Posted 6/5/12

            Nocturnes is an elaborately designed book that harmonizes a series of stunning black-and-white photographs with a series of eloquent poems. Each poem, printed on a sheet of vellum, serves as a portal to related, mysterious photographs. True meaning only exists deep down in the observer’s reservoir of nostalgia, the place where we all want to go swim at night, an unpredictable dreamscape where figures and objects pose as symbols of one’s experience. The rhythmic juxtaposition between w... [more]

Showcase Watchlist: Shelly Kay

(Image: Shelly Kay, The other side, 2012; © Shelly Kay) Shelly Kay (b. 1974, Washington, USA) I am a completely self-taught photographer. I have never had any formal training & I actually love that. For me, I simply shoot what I see, but more importantly what I feel. The love I have for "my city" is unconditional. Much of my work is urban, but a lot of it speaks as a personal diary as well. If I am having a bad day, I shoot it. I take self-portraits of myself and that helps purge out my... [more]

20120401123222-sherman__untitled_film_still__21__1978 Cindy Sherman and Eugene Atget at MoMA: Photography vs. Reality  
by
Cindy Sherman at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) February 26th, 2012 - June 11th, 2012
Posted 4/24/12

The Museum of Modern Art is host to two significant exhibitions, both of which explore Photography’s relationship to reality. Cindy Sherman’s 6th floor mid-career retrospective and Eugene Atget’s “Documents pour artistes”, hidden away in the Photography 3rd floor galleries, represent diametrically opposed positions. First some notes on the Sherman retrospective, which is the big draw. The first room held a couple of revealing images. Revealing to me at least, because I had never considere... [more]

Vivian Maier at Steven Kasher Gallery April 12th, 2012 - May 26th, 2012
Posted 4/24/12

I first stumbled across Vivian Maier’s black and white street scenes at Mass MoCA over the summer and had the opportunity to re-visit her work in several New York City exhibitions. By now, everyone is familiar with the story behind this work. Maier worked as a nanny and had a passion for photography. Her time off was primarily spent photographing people on the streets of Chicago.  She died in 2009, leaving a storage locker full of tens of thousands of negatives and thousands of exposed but unde...

(Image:Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Viewer, 2011, print; © Sara Greenberger Rafferty) Sara Greenberger Rafferty (b. Chicago, Illinois) In this print, Greenberger Rafferty intervenes in a still of Madeline Kahn with stains reminiscent of blood, saliva and tears, and pencil lines that trace a pair of glasses around the actress's obscured eyes. The resulting image, decidedly ghostly, hovers between photography, collage and watercolor. Sara Greenberger Rafferty's work is inspired by myriad sourc... [more]

Randy West at Bruce Silverstein June 9th, 2011 - September 17th, 2011
Posted 6/13/11

     In his first solo exhibition since 2007, photographer Randy West presents eight new works in the series Tethered.  As the two-dimensionalizing culmination in a process in which the artist crumples up his own rejected images, the sculptural forms that are created are photographed, a gesture that both relates the final work to their original unwanted images and re-imagines them into new photograhs.  The results are vibrant, interesting and formally satisfying.  West has managed to make his se...
