Dunescape 04 by Matthew McIver

Dunescape 4, Matthew McIver

Dunescapes have a proud tradition in fine art photography. The beauty of a Weston print meanders through time to the inspired work of Matthew McIver.

You find silence in a desert. You find conversation in a crowd. A gathering is a place for distraction. A desert is a place without expectations.

Now through August 31.

Father,Aida by Michael Marks

Father, Aida, Michael Marks

On a visual journey through the ancient lands of Israel, Michael Marks captures the timeless personalities of the the current residents.

During several visits to Israel and the West Bank I endeavored to capture some of the differences in these two places, as well as the ironies that are seen in daily life.

Notable: Hans Breder Passes Away at 81

Breder at Danziger Gallery, 2016

As life moves forward, the beauty that evolves with one more day must unfortunately come to an end. Such is the case of artist Hans Breder, who recently passed away at the age of 81. New York’s James Danziger – of Danziger Gallery – was privileged to work with Breder, and consequently wrote a lovely memoriam in remembrance.

Born in Germany,  Breder moved to the United States in 1964 and settled in Iowa where he founded the University of Iowa’s pioneering Intermedia department blending performance and media art.  A photographer, painter, sculptor, and conceptual artist, Breder influenced countless artists and exhibited in three Whitney Biennials.

We were privileged to get to know Hans and the gallery was proud to exhibit his work – first as a solo show at Paris Photo in 2015 and then with a show to open our Rivington Street gallery in 2016.  From these shows work was acquired by the Getty Museum, the Whitney, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and The Milwaukeee Art Museum, as well as numerous important private collections.

Breder was indeed a force of nature.  I saw him a month ago in Iowa City and although he had been ill earlier in the year, he was full of vigor as we planned future shows, went our for an Italian dinner, and a shared love of Lambrusco. This past weekend I received the news from Hans’ associate Candida Pagan notifying me that Hans had gone to the hospital and was in hospice care.  She wrote: “For someone who has considered thresholds and liminal spaces throughout his life, this is an important moment.”  I am sure this is how Hans considered it.

More about Hans Breder can be found on Danziger Gallery’s website.

Richard-Renaldi

5:14, Richard Renaldi

New York has been paid homage in a thousand and one forms, but pictures have always shown its truth. Richard Renaldi Manhattan Sunday is the latest example.

Featuring photographs taken in Manhattan between midnight on Saturday and noon on Sunday, Manhattan Sunday is an homage to New York’s nightlife and a celebration of New York as palimpsest onto which millions of people project their ideal and imaginary lives. Richard Renaldi’s visual observations are rooted in the home he found himself, in “the mystery and abandonment of the club, the nightscape, and then finally daybreak, each offering a transformation of Manhattan from the known world into a dreamscape of characters acting out their fantasies on a grand stage.”

Richard Renaldi (born in Chicago, 1968) graduated from New York University with a BFA in photography in 1990. Manhattan Sunday (Aperture, 2016) is the fourth body of Renaldi’s work published in book form, following Figure and Ground (Aperture, 2006), Fall River Boys (2009), and Touching Strangers (Aperture, 2014). In 2015, he was named a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in Photography.

The gallery by the Aperture Foundation will be on exhibit at the Aperture bookstore on Friday. Opening reception will run from 6 to 8pm. For those who can’t make the reception, Renaldi’s photographs will be on view until July 27th.

Preview: Lee Friedlander & Giancarlo T. Roma, Live from the NYPL: Passion Projects, NY, NY

In Photographer on June 13, 2017 at 11:00 am

NYPL

Lee Friedlander, one of the United States’ most respected modern photographers, hasn’t spoken in a public forum in decades. That changes next Tuesday, on June 20th.

As part of LIVE from the NYPL’s annual photography program, generously underwritten by Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos and Adam Bartos, pioneering photographer Lee Friedlander will take to the stage for the first time in over three decades for a conversation with his grandson Giancarlo T. Roma.

Friedlander is perhaps best known for his portraits of the American social landscape. But his photographic contributions are rivaled only by his prolific bookmaking. Together with Roma, he has revived the self-publishing book company he began in the 1970s, offering books, special editions, and portfolios pulled directly from the artist’s personal collection.

The discussion will take place at 7:00pm in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.

Peter, Sideways by Claire Seidl

Peter, Sideways, Claire Seidl

Our friend Claire Seidl has a new exhibition online at RED Filter Gallery. Her artistic approach is captured below, but it is the mystery of her work that captures the viewer’s attention and imagination.

I shoot long exposures, ranging in time from a few minutes to several hours.  Being very conscious that I cannot see in the dark or hold an image in my mind’s eye once I change my focus or move my head, I rely on the camera’s greater abilities. I use film and develop and print in my darkroom. Because I am also a painter, darkroom work seems like printmaking or drawing to me.

Now through June 30.

Surf's Up by Christopher Kennedy

Surfs Up, Christopher Kennedy

Christopher Kennedy has followed a winding creative path to his destination in Photo Luminism. Here is a sampling from that journey of image making. It is exciting work by a talented artist.

Whether capturing a traditional subject that can be viewed by anyone or using my camera as brush and canvas to create a vision the human eye cannot see, the passion … is all consuming.

Look up to sky

We always love to hear from our francophone ami and wonderfully talented Nicolas Auvray. This time, he’s got a great opportunity for photography fans with his exhibition in Angoulême, France at the gorgeous Hotel Saint-Simone.

 Attractions Nocturnes » presents a series of night photographs.  It begins as a night walk through the cities at night. Familiar places are re-discovered, figures appear and disappear in a darkness where metamorphosis and transitions take place. In these images, the city is a metaphor. Paris, Stockholm, New York…no importance… what matters is the universality of the impressions. Spectators are invited to explore other worlds and be transported in dreamlike scenes to follow their aspirations, and maybe deeper, darker passions and to look further in their identity.

For anyone living or travelling to France this month, the exhibit is sure to please.

Appalacian Mist by Susan May Tell

Appalachian Mist, Susan May Tell

Susan May Tell brings the viewer with intelligent grace into an observed event with the intention of engagement and thoughtful meditation.

A quiet, intuitive photographer, her photographic process is to walk around, alone, led by her camera lens and instincts. Shooting film without a motor drive, as she does, slows down the process and allows her, and us, to suspend disbelief and operate on faith.

Now through April 30
