New exhibition “After Hours” by photographer and painter Claire Seidl, at the Red Filter Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.

There are things in these pictures that I know well: dinners, porches, dining rooms, electric lights, flashlights, posts, floorboards, old chairs, windows, screen doors, books, my camera. There are phenomena I am familiar with but want to know more intimately: nighttime, shadows, moonlight, blurred images, reflections in glass. And, people: swimmers, girls (daughters!),grandparents, dear friends.

There are images in these pictures that only the camera can reveal: what we can’t see in the dark with our own eyes; what we can’t hold in sight after we shift our gaze. The camera gathers up multiple focal points while we can only see one at a time; and it accumulates what happens over time (seconds, minutes, hours) in a single two-dimensional place, the photograph.

These photographs remind me not of memories but of memory itself. They speak of time passing, and of mystery. I hope the images are evocative and emotional for the viewer, as they are for me.

Exhibition: May 9 – July 6

Rather than  gamble away their paycheck at the track, some people enjoy the healthier endeavor of capturing the horses behind their camera lens. BWGallerist friend and fellow photographer Juliet R. Harrison has done exactly this, compiling her works into the photography book, Track Life: Images and Words. 35 of these – and other equine photography – by Harrison will be exhibited at Merritt Bookstore Gallery.

There have been times without cameras and times without horses, but those times are long forgotten in the life of photographer Juliet R Harrison. Born on Long Island in the late 1950’s of urban intellectuals who took time to travel and explore the arts. Discovered the love of horses at age 5 when given the gift of a tiny book of black and white horse photographs. A harbinger of things to come. The obsession continued until the age of 15 when it was put aside for other things. A camera was always nearby but only to document places visited and people loved. Ms. Harrison obtained a BA in psychology in 1980. During the years from 1980 through 1988 the camera became more than a tool for documentation. A beginning darkroom course was taken and a love reborn. The camera became a tool for making art. Eventually living in New York City, architecture was the primary subject matter for Ms Harrison. Jobs as an administrator in custom color photo labs helped her learn about the print. A job as an assistant to a Fine Art reproduction photographer taught her about the camera and lighting. From 1988-1991 the photographer honed her skills in the MFA studio program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. In 1991 she graduated with a MFA in Photography. The year 1999 began the return to horses finding her true subject matter in the Equine form. Ms Harrison has exhibited work in juried shows, invitationals, and museums throughout the United States. Her work is in private collections throughout the world.

Not Quite a Retrospective will open on May 1st and run until June 29th. The Artist’s Reception will be Saturday, May 10th, at 11:30 am.

Profiles in Black&White: Michael Kenna

In Article, Black and White Photography, Photo Print Collector, Photographer on March 18, 2014 at 9:35 am

I gravitate towards places where humans have been and are no more, to the edge of man’s influence, where the elements are taking over or covering man’s traces.”

Kennasnow_340

For many artists, there are junctures in life that pull them towards more grounded aspirations. Or, in Michael Kenna’s case, more spiritual. Fortunately for lovers his work, Kenna shifted course  from priesthood to art school at 17 and has now photographed for over 40 years. Born in 1953 in Lancashire, England, Kenna’s education included stops at St. Joseph’s College, Banbury School of Art and London College of Printing. While originally a commercial photographer, his repertoire evolved and expanded after moving to the United States. One of his earliest jobs in the United States was working as Ruth Bernard’s printer while residing in San Francisco. Read the rest of this entry »

Eastman House’s travel lecture series continues to bring photographers to the masses, this time with Jeffrey Wolin. The museum’s lecture will be followed by a book signing.

Through image and text, Jeffrey Wolin links person and place with the passage of time. Often focusing his lens on individuals who have experienced hardship, he creates portraits that are distinctly honest and human. He will discuss his recent work, including the series Pigeon Hill Portraits: Then and Now, named for a low-income area of his hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. A graduate of RIT, Wolin is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. He is represented by June Bateman Fine Art in New York and Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.

This one night only event is Thursday, March 20th at 6:00pm.
