West coast flower power: Rose Shoshana; The Mother of photography dealers, always enthusiastic and generous with her time was stuck in a badly lit overly warm corner. Her booth shows magnificent and rare Evelyn Hofer and William Eggleston dye transfer prints going for approximately the same price ($40k or less) as the uninventive pretentious void of a Jean-Baptiste Huynh print. Hello! Dye transfer prints are pure magic! This rare and complicated technique is the most vibrant expression at the heart of the historical renaissance of American color photography. Why have they not sold out?

"...Not only is this exhibition a multifaceted history of Britain charted by very different sensibilities through the decades, it also charts the developing medium of photography itself, as various strands of social documentary give way to fine-art photography and colour floods in. In the show’s later rooms, places and people are increasingly given separate portrayals, whether Rineke Dijkstra’s 1990s teenage girls all togged up for a night out in Liverpool’s Buzz Club, or Jim Dow’s rammed shop window displays and his empty Edward Hopper-esque Peckham eel and pie shop."

Iris Veysey Focuses on Evelyn Hofer

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Iris Veysey discusses the work of Evelyn Hofer as part of her ongoing series Women Photographers in Focus.

Evelyn Hofer ,  Dublin , 1966.

Evelyn Hofer, Dublin, 1966.

The New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer once aptly described Evelyn Hofer as ‘the most famous unknown photographer in America.’ Hofer was a prolific photographer whose work appeared in publications including LIFE, The New York Times Magazine, and Vogue.  Her work frequently illustrated literary travel writing and she was one of the first practitioners to adopt colour for fine art photography. In spite of this, Hofer has not been granted the attention afforded her male peers. –Iris Versey

Featuring works by twenty artists from our gallery roster, Passing Through pays homage to the transience of all things and the power of the photographer to immortalize experience with the click of the camera shutter. The exhibition celebrates the essential magic of the medium, which allows us to give pause in a world of rushing and inescapable impermanence.  Together, the disparate photographs and imagery of Passing Through form a journey with its own unique pace, one that mirrors the ebbs and flows of life’s seasons from the youthful rush of possibility through the expectations and trials of middle age and beyond. It is a trip by car across the American landscape, a bicycle excursion through the city, a waltz across a romantically lit room, the shifting sky-scape with ever-changing clouds, an unexpected and devastating automobile crash. The physical world traversed and inhabited by the artists in the exhibition echoes the topography of our internal worlds in that both are subject to the great equalizer of time over which we can never exert power.  To hold onto what invariably slips past, and give undeniable presence to a subject even as it begins to fade, is the photographer’s attempt to counter the fundamental dissolution of existence, out of which the most profound beauty, loss and aspirations materialize.
