Alan Gaynor

"City Views & Other Things"
June 7- 25, 2011
Opening reception Thursday June 9, 4-7PM


Chelsea, NYC: Viridian Artists is pleased to present new work by Alan Gaynor. His exhibition of
photographs entitled "City Views & Other Things," continues from June 7 through June 25, 2011 with
an opening reception, Thursday June 9, 4-7PM.
Alan Gaynor's evolution as a photographer is an outgrowth of his interest in architecture and
urbanism. As architecture is often said to be "frozen music", Gaynor feels his photographs
demonstrate that in a city, it is the layering of the buildings played against one another elements that
create an overall ensemble that one could say resembles music.
The artist has studied with the master photographers George Tice (urban landscapes), John Sexton
(black & white imagery of nature and Ansel Adams' assistant) & Jock Sturges noted for his B&W
photographs of Naturists & beautiful people.
Nevertheless, and perhaps because he is a licensed architect, Gaynor's constant focus to date in his
photography is an encompassing examination of the architecture of the urban landscape. Looking at
his photographs, the viewer is made aware of the structural elements and the repetition of patterns
and form in man made design.

Combining traditional photographic equipment with digital processing, Gaynor created color and black
and white photographs in the show using 4"x 5" T Max 100 Film with a View Camera, or with a
medium format digital back on a view camera. The photographs were output professional inkjet
printers.


This will be the artist's first solo exhibit at Viridian, though he has exhibited previously at FotoFusion,
Spectra '07, Saf-T-Gallery, Black Box Gallery, Camera Obscura and Soho Photo, when in 2002 &
2003 respectively, he was awarded 1st & 3rd prizes in the Members Shows. He also received a Think
Tank Photo Award in 2007.


Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12-6PM
