For those looking to color the morose ambiguity that is often February weather, Soho Photo Gallery in New York City is now hosting a very interesting exhibition featuring the works of six talented photographers. While each photographer is on display simultaneously, each show is on individual, solo display.

Borders, Dreams & Beauty features the works of Peter Agron’s meloncholia, Lawrence Gottesman’s How to Disappear Completely, Alain Licari’s Both Sides,  James McCracken’s American Beauty, Fernando Sancho’s African Dream, and Richard Wilcox’s A Portfolio of New York Photographs.

Ranging from monotone urban landscapes to tea-toned gelatin silver prints to colorful excerpts of the Liberian realm, Soho Photo’s latest exhibition is sure to please photo connoisseurs of multitudinous ilks. 

The exhibit opened on February 6th, but only runs through the March 3rd. All are very welcome, but you better hurry! Check out the gallery’s current exhibitions for more information.

Benedict J. Fernandez “DISSENTERS”

One of the key times in modern photography, as in many other aspects of modernity, resides in “The Sixties”. An exhibit from this famous era is now in a public space and available to you for an unusual viewing experience.

This exhibit can be found in New York across from the Rockefeller complex at the non-descript lobby of 1285 Avenue of the Americas. Arrayed in the cold, uninviting atmosphere of a large set of lobby pillars is wonderful photography by renowned artists of the time. Our favorites included work by Mary Ellen Mark, Hollis Frampton, Gary Winogrand and Harry Callahan. Our favorites were two prints from a Chicago series by Aaron Siskind.

The exhibition of 60 prints features 10 of the most significant photographers from the 1960s, a decade that saw many new photography styles – collage, street photography, and photojournalism coverage of riots. “60 from the 60s: Selections from George Eastman House” offers a dynamic look at photography of the era. The exhibition is on view in the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery, created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 42-story building in which the gallery is housed. The exhibition features the work of photographers who were just beginning to create a name for themselves in the 1960s, as well as established artists then in the midst of successful careers.

Through Feb. 18, 2011
