INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY – COSTUME DRAMA by Peter Popham Colonial rule may be history for the Herero tribe of Namibia but the style conventions of their 19th-century German oppressors live on – albeit with a certain bovine-inspired twist… When European women jettisoned their ankle-length frocks and the multiple petticoats that kept the frocks full and plump, they gained a great deal in the way of freedom. But they lost something, too – and what they lost is brought home by the magnificent presence of the wome... [more]

CCNY 00 65 55 (Blog), December 2, 2010 Review — Abigail Simon The term “portrait” as generally understood, comes with a contingent assumption of specificity: it is assumed to be “of” someone, a specific person at a certain moment in time. We are by now familiar, in the rarefied air of our fine-art-ness, with the usual interrogations of this assumption: can we ever really know anything about a person from their surface, is the portrait of the photographer or the sitter, ranging all the...

Jim Naughten's "Re-Enactors" Exhibition at Klompching Gallery Written by Trent Davis Bailey Photography has long held an intrinsic relationship with war.
