Marisa Portolese's portfolio Belle de Jour
The 'Belle de Jour' "portraits are carefully orchestrated to present the viewer a world of girls who tease the line of the voyeur. The actors have been choreographed to come forth with a remarkable sense of their own sexual persona through lascivious, subversive gestures and defiant expressions. These images expose a budding female sexuality, and call into question an idealized vision of femininity."— Marisa Portolese

Bill Burke grew up—like so many young boys—groomed for war. With the aid of movies, magazines, and TV, he envisioned himself somehow, somewhere, as being in combat. Yet when he was of military age he became terrified of it, and was relieved when he failed his draft physical. In 1982 Burke decided to go to Thailand and Cambodia to give himself the Southeast Asia experience that he managed to escape in the sixties. Part travelogue, part artist's book, this work records those experiences in collages that juxtapose contact sheets, portraits, diary excerpts, maps, reproductions of currency, newspaper headlines, and other ephemera—reference, Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books

Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
With the enormous media attention surrounding the first anniversary of Katrina's landfall it's perhaps no surprise to find that many in the photographic community are also focusing on the Gulf Coast. Photographers, including Robert Polidori, Larry Towell, Chris Jordan, and photo-eye represented artist Debbie Fleming Caffery, have documented the aftermath of Katrina and Rita, offering their personal views of the impact of the storms.

Those wishing to make difference in the area might consider contacting Habitat for Humanity, which is currently soliciting volunteers to help with reconstruction efforts. Another great resource is the organization Charity Navigator, where you can find resources to help evaluate where best to contribute your money, labor, or expertise for a huge variety of causes. Recently, Charity Watch completed a preliminary one-year evaluation of charitable activity surrounding Katrina and Rita. Please visit their website for more information.
Debbie Fleming Caffery: Hurricane Images Debbie Fleming Caffery: Hurricane Images
Under the auspices of a grant from the Open Society Initiative, native Louisianan Debbie Fleming Caffery explored the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Focusing primarily on the Lower Ninth Ward, Caffery photographed the debris left behind in the wake of mass evacuations — wrecked cars, a steak knife and an eggshell, photographs tacked to walls, a pair of dentures — and the journey of many displaced residents from New Orleans to a shelter in Baton Rouge.

Stuart Rome: Forest Stuart Rome: Forest
"Stuart Rome's gorgeous black-and-white forest landscapes are brought together in this striking new oversized book, the artist's first monograph. Informed by his earlier projects — in which he examined the relationship between people and their environment in such distant places as Latin America and Indonesia — the work presented in Forest shows no trace of humankind, instead offering a view of the natural world itself as a communicating entity."—the publisher READ MORE

"WernerBischofPictures offers an overview of the work of one of the twentieth century's strongest photographers. Bischof (1916-1954), whose oeuvre took shape quickly over the very brief span of his adult life, is known as a master of black-and-white.

Jonas Bendiksen: Satellites Jonas Bendiksen: Satellites
Several of the six regions depicted in Satellites used to be strategic hinterlands of the sprawling Soviet empire, but upon its dissolution, regional conflicts played out like mini-apocalypses. Amazingly, three of them are self-perceived sovereign states: Transdniester, Abkhazia and Nagorno-Karabakh. We may not see their nameplates at the UN very soon however, for they are still caught up in the grumble of geopolitical interests. Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen has traversed them for years, in which time the center of the former Soviet system reconfigured its stratagem even further afield...

Guy Moreton: There Where You Are Not Guy Moreton: There Where You Are Not
"Wittgenstein's quest for his vocation was not, as it is often seen, a flight from himself. Rather, it was a search for the right place to be at one with himself," observes co-author Michael Nedo. Ludwig Wittgenstein: There Where You Are Not is an homage to those aspects of Wittgenstein's search that resonate with each of us. By turns biography, photography and poetry, this work occupies a unique place in the expansive realm of "Wittgenstein books" written by novelists, poets, playwrights and artists over the past 30 years...

The New Curator
An enlightening seminar on the role of the curator as the arbiter of quality and creator of context, revealing what's behind their choices. An SFCP "Creative Edge" seminar held in conjunction with Photo NY. Sunday, October 8, 2006, 9:00am-1:00pm. Metropolitan Pavilion, New York, NY.

Presenters will address the traditional and changing role of the curator, and the relationship between curators and artists, curators and audiences, curators and the marketplace, and, finally, curators and the history and meaning of photography itself. Venues for the work of curators will be examined from the gallery to the Internet, from the printed page to the lectern, from the vault to the artist's studio. Each presenter will offer an overview of her own priorities and process, and then evaluate the influence and future of the curatorial contribution.
