While New York is one of the most celebrated cities in the world, it hasn’t always been such a wonderful place to visit. Ken Schles was there to document some of its saltier days during the 1980s.

This spring the Noorderlicht Photogallery digs deep into a mythic time in New York’s Lower East Side. Ken Schles’ images from the 1980s are a gritty, penetrating portrayal of a city racked with violence, when crime rates were high and drug addicts and artists ruled his downtown world. An explosive but creative cocktail yielding an intoxicating brew of light, darkness and desire.

The exhibition of 100 black and white photographs coincides with the publication of a new Steidl monograph, Night Walk (2014), a companion to Schles’s underground cult classic Invisible City (1988). Recently reprinted by Steidl, Invisible City is considered alongside Brassaï’s Paris de Nuit and Ed van der Elksen’s Love On The Left Bank to be one of the great depictions of the nocturnal bohemian experience of the 20th century.

Anyone lucky enough to be in the Netherlands on Friday, April 3rd, will be able to attend the opening night, where Schles himself will introduce the exhibit. It will be available for viewing until June 7th.

Fahey/Klein Gallery opened their latest exhibition, We Shall Overcome, on Thursday, March 26th. The Civil Rights Movement was one of the most profound eras of the past century, indelibly impacting every facet of our culture. It was also one of the first times that visual media was so viably accessible to the masses.

The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, We Shall Overcome: Documenting the Road to Freedom. The exhibition follows the moving journey of four acclaimed documentary photographers, Danny Lyon, Steve Schapiro, Flip Schulke, and Stephen Somerstein, as they each capture the Civil Rights movement in the American South in the 1960’s. The exhibition focuses specifically on the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to demand free-and-clear voting rights for African Americans. These powerful photographs capture the heroes of the Civil Rights movement–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and James Baldwin–but also the countless grass-roots organizers and anonymous marchers who risked everything to trudge a long, dusty, and violent path to equality.

We Shall Over Come: Documenting the Role to Freedom, will be available for viewing through May 2nd.

Anyone in the Philadelphia area should step away from winter and pay their respects to Gallery 339’s final show in Philadelphia.

It’s a Long Way to Tipperary is the last show for Gallery 339 in Philadelphia.  The gallery has been a remarkable adventure, and we are happy with what we have been able to accomplish over the last ten years.  We had wanted to bring great photography to the city, and take the extraordinary work of Philadelphia photographers to other places.  And through the tremendous effort of staff, artists and other supporters, many wonderful pictures have come to Philadelphia, and remarkable photographs from here have gone out to collectors around the world.  With this last show, we want to sum up the gallery in an appropriate way, which is not simply a look back.  We are pleased therefore to present some of the best-remembered images from past exhibitions alongside compelling new projects.  We have been very fortunate to work with an exceptional group of photographers since we opened, and it is a privilege to exhibit their art one more time. 

With over 30 photographers on display, photophiles are sure to find someone’s work they enjoy. Unfortunately, the show only runs through the end of February, so anyone wanting to visit will need to do so soon.

In case you’ve been out of the loop, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City is currently hosting the Thomas Walther Collection of Photography. Bursting with some of the greatest photographers to walk the planet, this a quintessential example of the power of photography.

The creative possibilities explored through photography were never richer or more varied than in the years between the First and Second World Wars, when photographers approached figuration, abstraction, and architecture with unmatched imaginative fervor. This vital moment is dramatically captured in the more than 300 photographs that constitute the Thomas Walther Collection at The Museum of Modern Art. This remarkable group of objects is presented together for the first time to coincide with the culmination of the Thomas Walther Collection Project—a four-year collaboration between the Museum’s curatorial and conservation staff, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which has transformed our understanding of the medium’s material history from this era. Made on the street and in the studio, intended for avant-garde exhibitions or the printed page, these objects provide unique insight into the radical intentions of their creators.

The Museum acquired more than 300 photographs from Thomas Walther’s private collection in 2001. Featuring iconic works by such towering figures as Berenice Abbott, Karl Blossfeldt, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Claude Cahun, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Florence Henri, André Kertész, Germaine Krull, El Lissitzky, Lucia Moholy, László Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Maurice Tabard Umbo, and Edward Weston, along with lesser-known treasures by more than 100 other practitioners, this exhibition presents the exhilarating story of this key moment in photography’s history, allowing both experts and those less familiar with the medium to understand these photographs in new ways.

Charter a helicopter if you must, because this is one exhibit any enthusiast of photography should go to see. Fortunately, the exhibit will run until April 19th, so there’s no excuse to miss it.

Preview: Three Routines, John Gossage, Art Institute Chicago, Illinois

Throughout his career, John Gossage has enjoyed the enigmatic, forgotten and forbidden. This has included the destitute areas of Berlin in the 1980s and areas deemed hazardous by the Environmental Protection Agency. Now his work will come completely out of the limelight thanks to the Art Institute Chicago.

The first museum survey of American photographer John Gossage’s career ever mounted, this “retrospective in a room” brings together several decades’ worth of work
to show three distinct ways, or routines, in which the artist has approached photography.

One routine concentrates on his intensely productive time in Berlin in the 1980s; on display are two dozen images from the nearly 600 that make up his Berlin series, which the Art Institute is fortunate to own in its entirety. The second routine comes from Gossage’s recent year spent traveling the United States on a prestigious Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, making portraits of art students and capturing views in smaller towns and cities, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Rochester, Minnesota. The third offers a “medley” of images from across his career, which he began in his teenage years as a student of Lisette Model, Alexey Brodovich, and Bruce Davidson. In addition to highlighting the various photographic methods Gossage has used throughout his career, the exhibition includes a reading table with a selection of the artist’s publications, showcasing his talents as a consummate printer and an ingenious book artist.

The exhibit is now open until May 3rd, leaving more than enough time to plan a trip to Chicago.

2015 is upon us and our friend Juliet R. Harrison is showing no signs of slowing down. She has recently released another folio of photos, titled The Horses of San Marco. Limited to only 15 copies, the folio is comprised of eight signed 81/2″x11″ prints on archival cotton rag paper. Harrison’s work has long been entwined with the  equestrian world , and these follow suit. The Horses of San Marco are a quartet of bronze horses pulling a carriage in front of the San Marco Basilica in Venice Italy.

In addition to working on my own imagery and running the Equis Art Gallery (which is heading into its second year) I will be teaching a class in the Lifetime Learning Institute of Bard Collage. The class is called Horses of the Hudson Valley and is designed to introduce students to some of the wonderful equine oriented businesses and locations that operate in the mid-Hudson Valley. I am really looking forward to sharing some of the places I have been fortunate enough to find and explore so close to home.

I am energized to begin this new year and would love to hear from everyone if you have plans to visit. I would be thrilled to show you around the gallery and visit with my friends and fans.

These will only be available for special order while supplies last. Each folio is offered at a price of $220.00.
