DNA Entwined by Christopher Kennedy

Christopher Kennedy coined the term Photo Luminism for his work, which is created in-camera using depth of field, motion and different types of lights to create unique abstract images. Experimenting with every aspect of his digital camera to produce these images, which often take multiple shots to accomplish the desired effect, Kennedy prints his final images on brushed aluminum.

A sampling of Christopher Kennedy’s work can be viewed at the Red Filter Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.

“’I’m interested in changing people’s ideas about the use of color in photography,’ John Rohrbach explained. That was the impetus for ‘Color!’—the exhibition he put together at the Amon Carter Museum, where he is the senior curator of photographs. ‘Color!’ includes 75 photographs by 75 photographers that range in date from Levi L. Hill’s c. 1851 Hillotype to dye-coupler and inkjet prints by Alex Prager, Katy Grannan and Trevor Paglen from 2010. And the range of aesthetic purposes on display is at least as impressive.”

Santiago and Paola, Mexico City, 2002

Roberto Bolaño, considered by many to be the most important Latin American writer of his generation.  Bolaño thought of himself as a poet initially, and his first novels weren’t published until the 1990s. “The Savage Detectives,” won the Romulo Gallegos Prize for best Spanish-language novel of the year in 1999.  Bolaño died in 2003 at the age of fifty and his work has been translated steadily into English and other languages since then, creating widespread international acclaim. Bolaño’s publisher, New Directions has used nine of Allen Frame’s photographs as Bolaño book covers.

Frame’s photographs convey a deeply felt, but also carefully restrained sense of intimacy; desire and alienation; a noir-like menace that fits Bolaño’s work perfectly. Both color and black and white photographs will be on display paired with the literary work of Bolaño for this special exhibition.

White House, SC by Brian Lav

Renowned photographer Brian Lav will have an exhibition of his work in a show entitled,"Down South",  beginning November 7th and running through January 5th. The exhibition  is open to the public each afternoon, Friday through Sunday.

"Down South" breaks the Red Filter Gallery’s tradition of black and white photography by including  color work from Brian Lav. Long known for his brilliant monochrome work, gallery owner, Forrest Old states, “Brian’s work encompasses a broad evolution of style with substance. His new ventures into color work are exciting and worth experiencing by the viewing public."

"Down South" includes documentary images from a summer 2013 "voyage" through America’s great South Land. Over 4,000 miles on the journey provided Brian, and now the Red Filter Gallery audience, a keen insight into current conditions in this remarkable part of The United States.   

Brian Lav teaches photography at Parsons the New School for Design; an institution he has taught at since 1974. He has been photographing and teaching since 1969, and earned Parsons’ Distinguished Teaching Award in 1988. He has had over forty one man and group exhibits of his work and is represented in many permanent collections including The International Center for Photography, The Rochester Institute of Technology, The New Jersey State Museum, The Newark Museum, and The Museum of Art and History in Fribourg, Switzerland. Brian Lav is recognized as a prominent contemporary photographer, a master printer, and an exceptional educator.

At the same time as the  "Down South"  exhibition, the Red Filter Gallery offers an extended viewing of "The Hudson River: An Inspiration" by Joseph Squillante in upstairs Gallery II.
