Notable: Simple and Elegant – Black and White, Susan Spiritus Gallery, Irvine, CA

For those who’ve happened to read Black & White Gallerist over the years, there’s a good chance that you’ve noticed updates on what Susan Spiritus Gallery in Irvine, CA, is up to. Recently, the gallery sent out a little newsletter on how to describe black and white photography and we decided that we wanted to share it with the masses.

Simple and Elegant: Black and White

Many words come to mind when we describe a black and white photograph with several being simple, elegant, minimal, classic and sometimes stark. The list is undeniably endless, but in truth, much depends upon who is doing the viewing. A photograph can be described with any of those words as well as complex, abstract and multidimensional.

I’ve put together a collection of photographs that I believe are worthy of these descriptive words and are, in my opinion, simple and elegant gelatin silver photographs.

This newsletter will present work by Andre KerteszHengki KoentjoroPaul CaponigroManuel Alvarez Bravo and George Tice,

Drained by Bronwen Hazlett

Drained, Bronwen Hazlett

Using an alternative printing process, Bronwen Hazlett brings a mystic touch to abstract photographic scenes …

During the process of painting chemistry and exposing imagery, I push emotions and reality into something indiscernible but felt.   I coerce chemical reactions like my own reactions to hopes colliding with reality.

Now through June 30.
