photo-eye Bookstore is pleased to host an artist's reception and exhibition for Before Nothing: Assemblage Sculptures & Photograms by Andrea Volkoff-Senutovitch on Friday, June 12th, 2009 from 5 to 7 pm at photo-eye Bookstore, 370 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM. The exhibition will be on display from June 4th and continue through Saturday, July 11th, 2009.

Andrea Volkoff-Senutovitch was born in 1961 as a third generation Santa Fean and the granddaughter of artist Willard Clark. She began her career as a self-taught "outsider" artist and started her formal training in sculpture in 2004. She has professionally exhibited her photograms and assemblage sculptures since 1998. She often derives inspiration from her Russian and Armenian ancestry reflecting an autobiographical nature to her art. For her assemblage work, she incorporates found objects—stereoviewers, x-rays, a medicine bag, marbles, spectacles, vernacular portraits—into 3—dimensional pieces implying a meaning derived from the objects taken out of context. Many of her photograms and sculptural pieces, are displayed in antique gold-leaf and tramp art frames extending the artwork beyond the original creation.

"There is a certain alchemy that happens—a type of magic, a secret language spoken when these objects are assembled in particular ways. They re-tell the archaeology of their travels—the owners that touched them, the reasons they sing."—Andrea Volkoff-Senutovitch

"Andrea Senutovitch has achieved a special vision. Her photograms are fresh and visually stunning."—Robert Stivers

The photo-eye Bookstore is located at 370 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM and is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm.

photo-eye Shipping manager Daniel Fuller has chosen Mariana#5 by Julio Galindo as the staff pick for this week.

"These portraits were taken in the Ciudadela — a place were people go every Saturday just to dance." Music on the Street," called "El Danzon," for me is more than rhythmic music — it is deep dance, it is a body language, and for them it is their life. I went there and I put up a tent and invited people to be photographed. Most of them were more than happy to pose. And this is how I began."—Julio Galindo

Hajime Sawatari: Nadia (SIGNED) Hajime Sawatari: Nadia (SIGNED)
An important book when considering the influence of certain Western photographers on Japanese photo culture as it headed into the seventies. Particularly interesting is the fact that Ed Van Der Elsken and Sam Haskins—the photographers whose mark this work clearly shows—were not particularly big names in the West at this time. Like Haskins in particular, Sawatari is deploying the formal and aesthetic means of fashion photography at a time when it was not taken all that seriously by fine art photographers (Avedon being the major exception). A book that looks remarkably contemporary in light of current trends!

Stan Gaz: Sites of Impact Stan Gaz: Sites of Impact
"The Earth is pockmarked with the evidence of ancient collisions: huge craters blasted into its surface by thousands of pounds of meteorite fragments traveling at approximately 50,000 miles per hour. Ranging in age from those formed in this century to billion—year—old specimens, the Earth's meteorite craters are eroding at a rapid pace. The best—preserved impact sites are often difficult to access—buried under ice, obscured by foliage, or baking in desert climes. These desolate landscapes are connected to another place outside of our world, and for photographer Stan Gaz they are sites of pilgrimage."—the publisher READ MORE

Douglas Eklund: The Pictures Generation, 1974-1984 Douglas Eklund: The Pictures Generation, 1974-1984
"This handsome book is the first comprehensive examination of the Pictures Generation, a loosely knit group of artists working in New York from the mid—1970s to the mid—1980s. The overarching subject of the work of these artists was imagery itself—how pictures not only depict but also shape how we perceive the world and ourselves. The collective achievement of this group is an extremely important chapter in the history of contemporary art."—the publisher READ MORE

Stacia Spragg-Braude: To Walk in Beauty Stacia Spragg-Braude: To Walk in Beauty
"To Walk in Beauty takes readers on the journey of the Begay family of Jeddito Wash, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. This is an intimate portrait of a family's decision to return to the reservation and to reclaim its cultural identity. The book highlights in intensely personal terms the sense of cultural dissolution long associated with the tragedy of Navajo history, and it examines the spiritual healing that can take place when cultural identity is reclaimed."—the publisher READ MORE

Elaine Ling: Mongolia Elaine Ling: Mongolia
"During the thirteenth century, Mongol warriors under their legendary leader Chinggis Khan established a vast Eurasian empire through great wars of conquest. Some seven hundred years later their descendents still inhabit the high plains, deserts, and mountains that make up the country that is contemporary Mongolia. While almost a million people live in the capital Ulaanbaatar, many other Mongolians choose to maintain the ancient nomadic traditions of their ancestors. For them, home is a felt tent, and the most treasured possession is a really good horse.

From 2002 through 2008, the exuberant desert traveler and photographer Elaine Ling made five trips to Mongolia?s Gobi Desert to find and photograph the Deer Stones, Turkic Stones, and the shamanistic stone markers called ovoos, that are scattered across Mongolia's desert vastness."—the publisher READ MORE

Paul Outerbridge: New Color Photographs from Mexico and California, 1948-1955 Paul Outerbridge: New Color Photographs from Mexico and California, 1948-1955
"The publication of 'Paul Outerbridge: New Color Photographs from Mexico and California, 1948-1955' marks the discovery of a previously unknown and unpublished body of work by one of America's earliest masters of color photography. Outerbridge built his extraordinary reputation by making virtuoso carbro-color prints of nudes and still lifes, mainly in the studio, during the 1930s. In the late 1940s and 1950s he took his camera to the streets, crossing the border between California and Mexico and photographing the people and places he found."—the publisher READ MORE

Peter Sutherland: Hot Coals Only Peter Sutherland: Hot Coals Only
"It is partly Peter Sutherland's charm that allows him access to his subjects, but also his beard. The bearded are an important trope for Sutherland, his own beard nothing to sneeze at, commanding respect from the beard wearers he seeks. To Sutherland, these men are not simply eccentric derelicts, but more like mystical gurus. Hot Coals Only has one bearded man casually handling a python, another has his beard in plaits, wearing an expression of zen—like concentration as he sets up his pool shot.

Hand numbered with dust jacket. Limited edition 200 copies."—the publisher READ MORE

Seeing Light with Carlan Tapp
June 28—July 4, 2009

This workshop is about taking the time to slow down, look at the light, and think about what it is we want to say through our photographs. Whether our focus is on portraits, still lifes, or landscapes, we learn to adopt an open mind and a willingness to play and experiment with light. We take the ordinary and allow ourselves to capture the extraordinary by reacting, interpreting, and expressing ourselves with the camera.

The Personal Photographic Image with Cig Harvey
June 28—July 4, 2009

The powerful medium of photography allows us to manifest our personal stories. Using metaphor and symbolism, participants photograph across many genres?the found and the constructed, the landscape, the still life, the portrait, and the self-portrait?in order to visually articulate their narratives. We devote the magical hours of early morning and late afternoon to making images so that our stories are told in beautiful light.
