DESCRIPTION

HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition, HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME. Combining the work of young, up-and-coming photographers with that of established masters, this exhibition covers an impressive range of approaches and subject matter. Surfing photography from the 60's and 70's by the legendary surf photographer LeRoy Grannis transports viewers back in time, into the sun and onto the beach. Lavish interiors of opera houses from around the world by artist David Leventi soar with dramatic associations. Black and white photographs of Japan and color photographs of North Korea by Hiroshi Watanabe simmer with quiet mystery, while artist Peter Jones captures the fleeting light, color and texture of the summer season. Offering a unique view of surfers, Blair Seagram deconstructs and reconstructs the beach in her composite panoramas images. Additionally, Heidi Basset Blair offers the ultimate in summer fun with her sun-drenched vacation moments.
In addition to these highlights, the exhibition will feature the work of numerous other emerging and established photographers including Evan Schwartz with photographs of cross-dressers at leisure and Damion Berger with views of swimmers underwater.
