W. M. Hunt review Classic Photographs LA - The Eye of Photography

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

"Classic Photographs Los Angeles is the comfort food of photography fairs: warm and satisfying, a kinder, gentler throwback to the hotel fairs of the early 1980’s." He had a yummy time.

Of the photography dealers, booth layouts and prints mentioned, Hunt took notice to the color works on display in our booth.  "Surprising and unsurprising" were both the works of Jo Ann Callis and Graciela Iturbide.  Iturbide was invited to photograph Frida Kahlo's bathroom 50 years after her death.  The portfolio of 6 works in full technicolor are exquisite dye transfer prints.  Jo Ann Callis's vintage silver gelatin prints accompanied Iturbide, and Wendt.  Lionel Wendt was a Ceylon born musician, writer, critic, lawyer and photographer in the 1930s until his death in 1944.  He was a founder and member of the 43 Group, a salon style society of artists in Sri Lanka, whose creative efforts lead to great international success.

Philharmonie de Paris is currently hosting The MMM Exhibition, on view through January 29, 2017. 

The show is the culmination of a meeting between two personalities - a musician, Matthieu Chedid, with a definitive visual incline, and an iconic figure in contemporary photography, Martin Parr.

At The MMM (Matthieu aime Martin or Martin meets Matthieu) Exhibition, the artists converge in a dialogue held together by two separated and diverse environments. Functioning as a mini-retrospective with more than 500 photographs, Parr’s work is grouped in nine thematic chapters featuring themes such as animals (real and imaginary), headdresses and congregations, each paired with a unique soundtrack, specially composed by Chedid, which is arranged around one music instrument (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, celesta etc). The composer’s “homage” allows for a hybrid experience, halfway between sight and sound, a heartfelt mano a mano.

 Jo Ann Callis,  Woman With Blonde Hair,  1977

Jo Ann Callis, Woman With Blonde Hair, 1977

From the collection of Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck

Woman With Blonde Hair is from a series of elegant and often enigmatic images from 1976 to 1977 that preceded the last 30 years of fictional narrative in photography. Referencing film noir, Paul Outerbridge, and the eroticism of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, it creates a highly charged domestic tableau that exists out of any context and without any clear resolution, but is instead highly suggestive—the fetishistic overtones giving the scenario both pleasure and anxiety.  As a cibachrome print, its lush coloration has a slightly metallic tone, only increasing its sense of menace and style.

Timeless Photographs of Dorothea Lange - JPR

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Jefferson Public Radio takes a look into Dorothea Lange's expansive work in and around the border of Northern California and Oregon. 

"Even those well-versed in Dorothea Lange's photography usually aren't aware that Lange took over 800 documented photographs in JPR's listening area.

The neglect of these Northwest photographs is a pity,” writes Linda Gordon, Ph.D., in a 2009 article published in Oregon Historical Quarterly. Though Gordon—a professor of History at New York University who considers Portland, Oregon her hometown and author of the comprehensive biography Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits—refers to Lange’s Oregon photos as “second best” and argues that they “do not match the stunning achievement of her Depression best"

9: He/She/They at ROSEGALLERY

In 2015, “they” was nominated word of the year by the American Dialect Society, an indication, at least on the level of language, that American culture is making some moves away from the gender binary. The exhibition He/She/They took that shift to heart, organizing works dating from the early 1930s to the present from around the globe, with a focus on portraiture in the ever-changing medium of photography. The works either directly discussed the constructs of gender or dismantled them altogether. Katsumi Watanabe’s late ’60s portraits captured candid shots of people from Tokyo’s queer nightlife. Susan Meiselas documented carnival strippers during the early ’70s, at the same time the feminist movement was taking shape in the US. In his series Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera, Wayne Lawrence documented beachgoers at the Bronx’s only public beach. He/She/They brought a much-needed, refreshing look at gender. —Alicia Eler
