“For me, the most exciting part of the process is not knowing what I have until I’m processing in the darkroom, then turning on the lights and seeing the negative. I love watching the image develop in the tray.” -Ted Preuss

I wish I could admire these prints in real life. The computer screen doesn’t come even close to seeing prints on a gallery wall.

The Nude isn’t about body parts!

June 19, 2013 in Gallery Shows, NEWS

Rant warning!

I follow a lot of “leaders in the gallery industry” on twitter (quotations necessary) and sometimes I run into the most hair pulling nonsense spewed out of people’s mouths (keyboards) or just utter brain farting of those whose heads are so puffed up with their own self worth and all knowing lunacy of a genre of art which they’ve never even practiced. It’s one of the reasons I stay out here in California and ignore New York and the dribble of what they think is important work.

But this… a RT by Elizabeth Avedon (RT means retweeting what another twitter account posted) really threw me. I don’t know if she was RT’ing it because she thought it was funny, true or utter bollocks. She left no explanation. Or maybe she was there. Who knows. What I do know is whatever came out of Mariah Robertson’s mouth was total bollocks. And seeing how I’ve never heard of her and went to google her work because of this and couldn’t find one nude she’s ever shot – maybe she just doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about. So, why is she on a panel discussing nude photography? What could she possibly lend in the realm of knowledge to the people taking time from their nights to listen? But we do, don’t we. We know that butts are not the boobs of male nude photography and that nude photography isn’t about body parts at all. Yes, we know this because we actually shoot nudes. (read the first tweet from the flowers gallery screen grab below).

So I went to the Flower’s Gallery twitter page and found all this stuff that they were discussing about nude photography:

and all these people are listening!

This is the Group Show!!!

I don’t know about their taste in nudes, but I think ours is a bit more refined here. I’m proud to stand next to all of you.

I did research who Mona Kuhn was though and her work is quite nice if you’d like to take a peek. I do very much love her black and white photography. Her “France 2002-2008” is a bit too Jock Sturges – sort of like she went to the same spot in France and shot over his shoulder except with a digital camera and in color. It’s nice though.

It’s of interest to me what New York is like since it’s very different from how New Orleans was like or how LA is for me now. New York photography has this grimy feeling to me. Maybe it was just the photos selected for Featured Shoot – but it’s not a gallery exhibit I’d be interested in going to. What’s wrong with beautiful? The photo by Nadav Kander is nice, but what’s with the dirty nudes? And not dirty as in morality – but like dirt on your skin. I don’t get these treatments to make people look as ugly as they can possibly make them look. Really bad color. It’s like everyone wants to suck as bad as Terry Richardson or something. I don’t know.

Things We Project – One Night Only!

September 7, 2010 in Gallery Shows

Things We Project

Things We Project

(Worcester, Mass.) Photographers can be real control freaks.

From behind the camera, they crop the composition, manipulate the lighting and adjust the focus. But that’s just the beginning. Now they’re taking control of a Worcester gallery for a one-night show.

“I have my own ideas about what I want to show, and how to show it,” said Jeff Haynes, one of the exhibiting photographers and the show’s organizer. “And while this area definitely has lots of great galleries and talented curators, I just don’t have the patience to wait for one of them to get on board with my vision.”

As a result, Haynes is organizing Things We Project with five other Massachusetts photographers. The show, set for Saturday Sept. 18, 2010 at the Sprinkler Factory, will feature photographers Nicole Chan, Scott Erb, Haynes, Dana Lane, Steve Stearns and Cynthia Woehrle.

“As the name suggests, this event is designed specifically for each photographer to showcase what he or she aims to achieve as an artist,” Haynes said.

Each photographer has selected 10 images to represent one cohesive body of work for the show. The six collections vary widely in scope, including figurative, narrative, travel and painterly style photos.

“This is a chance for the photographers to talk about how they view the world through their respective lenses,” Haynes said. “I didn’t want a show constrained by a single theme – I wanted an honest presentation from each photographer of what he or she likes to shoot.”

The 60 photos will be presented through a combination of computer displays and digital projectors. The move was made, in part, to save on the costs in printing, matting and framing 60 images. But there were other considerations, too.

“The projectors certainly add a theatrical element, which I like,” Haynes said. “And the computer displays provide a relatable interface for viewers. Most of us see a steady stream of images on our computer screens, thanks to the Internet. So the show will feature a variation on a format we have come to accept for viewing photos.”

The show is scheduled to run from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010 at the Sprinkler Factory, 38 Harlow St., Worcester, Mass. The show is free and open to the public.

@ Wingate Paine Speigel der Venus

BERLIN.- From July 3, 2010, until August 28, 2010 CAMERA WORK will present a group exhibition mainly curated from its own collection, displaying more than 40 photographers and their perspectives on mostly female nude art. Selected classics are supplemented with, in some cases, never before exhibited contemporary works of Blaise Reutersward, Nadav Kander, or Ralph Mecke.

The kaleidoscopic exhibition stretches from classical, nearly sculptural studio-stagings, as in the works of Horst P. Horst, Frantisek Drtikol, or Rudolf Koppitz, to the erotic and provocative images of Helmut Newton or Bettina Rheims, and extending to the series of documentary pictures by recently-deceased Larry Sultan, which originated off-set during pornographic shootings.

The studio-photography of the Pictorialists was followed by trend-setting picture experiments in the 1920s. Artists like Man Ray, André Kértesz, or Edward Weston began to render their studies of the body unfamiliar by means of using multiple exposure, solarization, collages, extreme perspectives, and techniques of light/dark contrast. These new methods of art were picked up during the post-war period and were continuously refined and advanced. The almost abstract extreme close-ups of Ralph Gibson, the very sensual nude art of Manuel Álvarez Bravo, or the poetic perspectives of the body, drenched in blue light, by Kenro Izu serve as examples. Lucien Clergue, one of the most distinguished nude-art-photographers worldwide, captivates the viewer with his images of bare female bodies being caressed by shadow plays. Beside such photographs coming from “God’s notebook”, as Pablo Picasso once described his friend Clergue’s work, the pictures of the 1960s and 1970s predominantly have an increasingly sexual connotation, as is the case in the works of Robert Mapplethorpe or Helmut Newton.

In contemporary photo art, works of Thomas Ruff, Larry Sultan, or Nadav Kander, who each reflect on nakedness in different ways and who augment nude art photography with their innovative work exist side by side with erotic images of Guido Argentini or Russell James. While Ruff deprives the voyeuristic observer of pornographic images, the constant availability of which is guaranteed by the internet, by making them unfamiliar, Larry Sultan documents the solitude and melancholy on the fringes of the industry that tirelessly produces these images. With his pictures of baroque, haggard, and stressed female nude photographs, Kander, on the other hand, breaches the dictate of the traditional ideal of beauty. The persons portrayed are incorporated into mystic and gloomy spaces, and the unique atmosphere of these pictures immediately unfolds an eerie as well as archaic energy.
