Iman, Paris, 1990

Roxanne Lowit’s beginnings in fashion photography lead her to become a premier photographer of the rich and famous. One of only a few photographers allowed to photograph behind the scenes, she elevated the snapshot to an art form in both black and white and color. Her “non-judgmental empathy,” and ability to remain a visual confidant, letting her subjects act naturally rather than posing them, helped her amass an archive of over 200,000 negatives and color slides from fashion events in Paris, New York, Milan and London.  This mini retrospective will include over 40 vintage and modern black and white works and over 20 large-scale color photographs.

Tommy, 1964

In this first ever exhibit of Fitzgerald’s work, his revelation of his models as demi-gods is obvious. Muscular young men as elegant nudes or masculine bravados; in cowboy hats, leaning against cars, playing cards and smoking fill each frame of his work. Fitzgerald began this endeavor to capture the visage of local Brooklyn boys during a time where they flirt between innocence and experience; boyhood and manhood. This exhibition will include 35 portraits and nudes in both black and white and color and coincides with the release of his book by the same title.

Atget
Gd Trianon (Escalier), 1905 by Eugene Atget

The early 20th century, Frenchman Eugene Atget, set out to photograph the world beyond his home. In thirty years he had amassed a collection of Parisian architecture ranging from broad views to detail shots. Documenting architecture through the process of albumen prints, Atget’s work was lauded by surreal and modern artists of his day and his work is still revered to date.

Marc Riboud, another French photographer, has taken this documentary process even further – pressing beyond the boundaries of Paris and even beyond France to India and China. Documenting more of the country’s dramatic changes and rapid development than any other non-native photographer, Riboud’s focus shifted from people to the Huang Shan mountains and their mists which have inspired artists and poets alike for millennia.

Community Organizer, Detroit, 1968 by Enrico Natali

Enrico Natali was born in 1933 in Utica, New York, but during the 1960s Natali was in Detroit, photographing images that still resonate emotionally today. These images are the precursors to the racial conflict and political upheaval that swept the country and contributed to Detroit’s modern reputation. The innocence captured in these tender portraits is a haunting look into an astounding period of calm before the storm.

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.
