The Drapery by Eric Kunsman

The Drapery, Eric Kunsman

Well crafted imagery is a key to understanding Eric Kunsman’s award winning photographs …

 The body of work created demonstrates a previous attempt at prison reform from the popular European model in the 1800’s. The images help viewers to understand how many things have not changed over the passing of time whether that relates to the crimes the prisoners committed or the conditions they face during incarceration.

Now through February 28.

“The Flamenco; The Spanish Passionate Dance” Photographs by Julio M. De Pena, Red Filter Gallery

Flamenco 04 by Julio M. De Pena

Flamenco 04, Julio M. De Pena

Years ago, I stumbled on a small cafe in Mexico that had a strange mix of rhythmic clacks and guitar strumming emanating from behind its entrance. Having grown up in the time of Jose Greco, I was familiar with this Flamenco motif. What I was not prepared for was the beauty of the performance that took place on table top less than six feet away. The photographs of Julio M. De Pena capture perfectly the elegance and excitement I remember.

Documenting this energy and movement in a low light setting with no other light source than the stage spotlights becomes both a challenge and advantage as it gives you a strong contrast of light and darkness adding a tone of mystery to this passionate, rhythmic and emotional dance.

Now through January 31.

Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily, Italy by Cheryl Slechta
TONNARA DI SCOPELLO, SICILY, ITALY, Cheryl Slechta
The artist looks deep into the subject matter to find new ways of viewing which results in another level of perception and understanding …
My photography is influenced by my life-long love of art.  My path is two-fold at the moment – vintage black and white images as presented here and black and white abstract, minimalist images found in nature and architecture.
I am enamored with the early photographers – Steichen, Stieglitz, Doisneau, Kertesz, etc. and they have led me down my black and white/film path.  I use my wonderful plastic Holga TLR film cameras which are square format and the whimsy of the unexpected lighting and focus variations lend themselves to my artistic vision.  I also use my iPhone with various apps to recreate the same vintage look.  To me, the ancient beauty of the Old World begs for this treatment.
Now through December 31

“COMING HOME”, Photographs by DEBBIE O’DONNELL , Red Filter Gallery

Coming Home, Debbie O’Donnell

Hailing from Australia, Debbie O’Donnell captures a unique vision from “Down Under”.

Returning to Western Australia after an absence of 18 years was a strange and emotional experience. The combination of returning to my roots and feeling home, but also feeling disconnected. Immersed in the comfort of nature; listening to the rustle of leaves and branches swaying in the wind, was a way of surrendering and releasing the hold of the past. It was a journey of reflection, reconnecting and coming home to myself.

Now through August 31.

Budding 01 by Emel Karakozak

Budding 01, Emel Karakozak

Some wonderfully enigmatic work by Emel Karakozak is now available for viewing at Red Filter Gallery. The kaleidoscope effects combined with a theme of regeneration is worth the “trip”.

Woman is a being through which man feel connected to nature as woman is very similar to nature in birth-giving and life-blooming characteristics. That is why many languages use the term of ‘mother nature’ while referring to nature. Since she is the bridge between life and man, and the forgiving despite all. She is able to recreate herself and that is the source to her characteristics. Woman not only causes a miracle by giving birth, but also has the ability to reconstitute herself spiritually.And she fulfills this by putting herself into the center.

Now through July 31.

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.

Wickecheoke Creek 01 by Diane Levell

WICKECHEOKE CREEK 01, Diane Levell

Diane Levell has been creating wonderful images for decades. Using straight technique or alternative print processes, she has always kept the image itself in the forefront for viewer contemplation.

In my work I have consistently striven for a high level of craftsmanship and aesthetic quality. And I wanted to use the photographic medium to its fullest extent; “straight” black and white, color and the historic techniques of the pictorial school.

Now through May 31.

KHALIL STAFFORD TRAINS AMIRA, Jano Cohen

While boxing as a sport and art has receded from popular view, these events still taking place in local urban settings continue to provide a place for character building. Jano Cohen captures those special moments in a series that has a timeless, special quality about it.

The gym is a safe place for people of all ages to learn physical skills in a well-loved sport. In the gym I am documenting the evolution of the training of a boxer from childhood. Trainers keep in the game by passing on their knowledge.  I am observing how the gym operates as a community center and the intimate relationships between trainers and boxers.

Now through March 31.

Brighton Resident by Liam Sharp

Brighton Resident, Liam Sharp

Street photography requires an acquired skill and a refined approach in order to capture those real life moments with impact. Liam Sharp accomplishes this result with finesse.

The image I see when approaching is gone as soon as the subject becomes aware that they are being photographed.
What I am trying to do in this series of street images, taken in New York, is to try to capture what I actually see and feel when I encounter my subjects on the street. I cut a hole in the side of a cell phone case, where I insert my DXO camera and  walk the streets at a fast pace. I decide what I am going to photograph from a distance. As I pass the scene, without framing the shot, I try to capture what I have seen from a distance.

Now through February 28.

Conservatory by Allen Shifrin

Conservatory, Allen Shifrin

Black and White photography highlights a dramatic scene through the balance of light and shadow. Surround the same scene in the dark veil of night and the drama is further heightened.

This series of photographs reflects my interest in landscape photography, with an emphasis on the urban landscape.  The subject matter is the scene that unfolds at night, where composition is informed as much by shadow as by artifact.

November 1 through November 30
