This month, the gallery is proud to present the following shows – including works both on and off our walls!

Lee Backer
Tree Studies

“I photograph trees to try to capture their beauty as individual living beings, each with its own personality, challenges, and life story on display.”

Irene Greenberg
Field of Grass/Photographs

“What is it like for me being hearing impaired? Sometimes, the words I hear are not the words spoken. For this project, I have paired images to show the gulf between what was said and what I heard and provided a sound track so viewers may hear for themselves. By sharing this experience, I hope to illustrate the isolation that the hearing impaired often face.”


Alexander Krohmer
Encounters

“I started this series in summer 2006 during a two-month stay in Florence. I continued it in my hometown Munich, and in Berlin and other big cities.

It was surprising how much intimacy could be gained during the short portrait sessions. I photographed the back of the people as an experiment, which then became an inherent part of this project. By standing with their backs towards me, my subjects were forced to give up some control. This somehow more vulnerable setting provided an additional view of their personality.”


Pierre-Yves Linot
Immigrant Song

“The inhumanity of Trump’s policy toward immigrants has aroused my anger. It has inspired me to continue the project I started 15 years ago. For this new series of 4stones, I invite immigrants living around me in New York City to arrange the four pebbles any way they like. I photograph them using a Holga plastic lens, which lacks definition, and print my images on watercolor paper using an alcohol transfer process.”


R. Wayne Parsons
Making Meaning

“We live in a universe that simply is, one without meaning or purpose. Humans refuse to accept the finality of this fact. In response, we create meaning through our activities – art, science, religion, social relations – all the many endeavors that mark us as human. The images in this series have no referent or meaning - they are just abstractions with short bits of meaningless prose, best interpreted to mean that if we want meaning in our lives we must create it ourselves.”


Photographs Off the Wall

The photos come off the wall and are bound between covers and worked into objects in this exhibit of works by gallery artists. Photography books of all sizes and styles sit next to objects never imagined for photography.


Contemporary Photographers Speaker Series

Ashly Stohl, photographer, publisher, mother

Pictures and Book

Thursday, November 9 from 6-8:00pm, free and open to the public.

Ashly discusses balancing motherhood, photography, and book publishing.

Ashly Stohl became a photographer at an age when she was already wife and mother, and her ability to travel was limited. She instead began to photograph her daily life, eventually publishing a book about her son entitled Charth Vader. The book went viral and quickly sold out. Following the book’s success, Ashly, along with photographer David Carol, founded photo book publishing house, Peanut Press.
