The Schneider Gallery is pleased to present the work of four young artists\, Jowhara AlSaud\, Jess T. Dugan\, Jennifer Greenburg\, and Ursula Sokolowska. These exceptional women photographers all explore the power of the portrait.

The portrait is personal\, and when eff ective\, goes beyond depiction- it commands presence\, it reveals the qual ity and character of the sitter. The portraits by AlSaud\, Dugan\, Greenb urg\, and Sokolowska allow us the unique pleasure to do more than look but to engage a world that we may otherwise not feel invited into. Each arti st captures their subject with such ease and grace that we too feel to ha ve an intimate relation with them. We do not see as a voyeur\, rather as friend\, confidant\, or equal. We are welcomed to comfortably wander\, ev en inhabit the frame.

Saudi Arabian artist Jowhara AlSaud works with purpose. She begins with images of daily life- snapshots of family and friends- and works subtractively\, scratching into the emulsion of the negative itself. Through elimination she employs a visual language that reacts directly to the process of censorship.

Jess T. Dugan t akes interest in identity and self definition. She explores how activitie s\, collections\, and place act as mirror to the self. Dugan both asks an d answers the question- how are our passions\, interests\, and pursuits re flected in the environments we inhabit. A seemingly simple question is ha ndled with sincerity\, delight\, and insight into the figures and the spac es illuminated.

Jennifer Greenburg explores the subculture of the American Rockabilly in frames that inherently have documentary qualit y\, but work beyond the limits of the genre. The Rockabillies live within the parameters of mid-twentieth century America. Judgment\, critique\, a nd skepticism of those living this adopted lifestyle fall away\; our engag ement with the figures is both personal and direct.

Ursula So kolowska’s latest work is subtle yet weighty. No removal exists between t he viewer and subject. The immediacy and rawness of the individuals depic ted allows for an instant contact with the space\, charac-ter\, and subseq uent narrative. If we were not allowed to hide ourselves in shadow our me eting with the figures would almost be abrupt.
