BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY February, 2013 "Hereros – Jim Naughten"   London-based photographer Jim Naughten first came across the Herero tribe and their eclectic sense of fashion several years ago while travellingin southern Africa. The images he captured on that trip were published in Marie Claire, which funded an exhibition that in turn landed him a major global advertising campaign. Yet Naughten knew he needed to return to Namibia to continue photographing. “I always had it in the back... [more]

(Image: Heather Rivera, The King is Dead, Long Live the King!,  Photography - Digital ; © Heather Rivera)   Heather Rivera (b. 1977, Port Jefferson, NY) I love taking photographs of things people see every day and putting a new twist on them. I like to give my viewers a new perspective through my lens, this way everyone gets the chance to look at the world the way an artist does. I feel that schooling has nothing to do with the ability to tell a story or make great art, all one truly needs... [more]

Posted 10/10/12

            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]

(Image: Evan Lavine, Falling, Digital Photography,10x10 Inches; © Evan Lavine)   Evan Lavine (b. Long Island, NY) My photography takes a closer look at everyday instances that sometimes go by without notice. With my camera I am able to slow down and capture a single moment, deconstruct it from contextual references and then retell an interestingly layered story with one frame.  These stories are told through the medium of  abstraction, defocusing the lens and most recently – long exposure...

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...

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]

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]

(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]

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]

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...
