A very nice exhibit of body abstract portraits by veteran photographer Mark Cohen. Often headless, faceless figures are presented for the viewer to study.
“Grim Street” is a selection of original photographs by influential street photographer Mark Cohen. Made in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s on the streets of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, the assembled images offer a complex and surprising portrait of the city and its citizens. Cohen has called these pictures “grab shots,” referring to how he shot from the hip with his camera prefocused. The resulting photographs—usually captured through chance encounter and with an unexpected flash—present the viewer with a compelling spectrum of often headless characters reacting to Cohen’s camera as they go about their day. Looking back at significant photographers who were shown during the organization’s early years,
A native of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Mark Cohen rose to prominence as a photo-grapher with a solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in 1973. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and two Guggenheim Fellowships, Cohen’s work is included in numerous public collections, and is currently the subject of a survey exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Mark Cohen: Strange Evidence, on view until March 13, 2011. A selection of his photographs was included in Blue Sky’s 1978 group exhibition, Some Twenty Odd Visions, and in a companion catalogue of the same name. Cohen’s Grim Street was published by powerHouse Books in 2005.
Currently on exhibit through January 16

Lauren E. Simonutti, “Admission”, 2011
After viewing the hundreds of quality images throughout this year’s AIPAD photography show, it is a fool’s task to pick the one artist that stands out. However, the impact of the images produced by Lauren E. Simonutti leave no doubt as to the importance of her work:
The problem with madness is that you can feel it coming but when you tell people you think you are going crazy they do not believe you. It is too distant a concept. Too melodramatic. You don’t believe it yourself until you have fallen so quickly and so far that your fingernails are the only thing holding you up, balanced with your feet dangling on either side of a narrow fence with your heart and mind directly over center, so that when you do fall it will split you in two. And split equally. So there’s not even a stronger side left to win.
Over three and one half years I have spent alone amidst these 8 rooms, 7 mirrors, 6 clocks, 2 minds and 199 panes of glass. And this is what I saw here. This is what I learned.
As shared by Simonutti’s gallerist, Catherine Edelman, the viewer learns the work is an essential tool for the artist in managing a very challenging life. That being said, all viewers are rewarded in a very special way by these intricate creations and the emotions they evoke.

Gilbert Garcin, “La tour d’ivoire – Ivory tower”, Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto
Yesterday, we highlighted the “must see stops” on your U.S. gallery tour of the AIPAD photography show. Today, the choices were that much more difficult, as the international representation was broader this year and the quality of exhibits very good.
Best AIPAD Show International Gallery Displays:
- Stephen Bulger Gallery, (Toronto) The Garcin series is provocative and so well executed.
- Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, (Paris) The “touch of Europe” complete with display call outs is quite enjoyable.
- Michael Hoppen Gallery, (London) A great selection from a deep inventory of work.
- Galeria Vasari, (Buenos Aires) The Grete Stern images are eye catching as are a number of the other images on display.
- Picture Photo Space, (Osaka) A reminder that amidst the tragedy in Japan there is a history of beauty and excellence upon which to build a future.
Sunday is the last day of the show … so enjoy!
