Unexpected Results: Photographs by Howard Korder opens at photo-eye Bookstore this Friday

photo-eye Bookstore is pleased to host a reception and exhibition of Unexpected Results: Photographs by Howard Korder at photo-eye Bookstore, Friday, July 24th, from 5-7pm. The exhibition will run through August 22nd, 2009.

Korder is a self-proclaimed flâneur, Baudelaire's "botanist of the sidewalk." The detached viewer in many locales— New York, Los Angeles, Italy, New Mexico— he searches for moments where mystery, menace, comedy, and grace collide. Each title names the location and date in which the photographer was present, creating a visual record of his "wandering with intent." The cultural landscape, as J.B. Jackson describes, is "a composition of man-made or man-modified spaces to serve as infrastructure or background for our collective existence... which underscore... our identity and presence." Korder's photographs, like many of the great photographers who have clearly influenced his aesthetic — such as Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Robert Adams, and Louis Faurer — are works of import, recording his own travelogue while creating documents of the cultural landscape of the 21st century.

 Photographer's Showcase
Janice Levy's portfolio Out of Place

"Distance, both physical and emotional, from something once familiar but never really owned, provides a compelling perspective from which to work. Out of Place comes from that region of intellect. It is an expression of my own examination of what it is like to return to a place that has been thoroughly explored and yet remains totally foreign."—Janice Levy

Esko Männikkö (Rare 1996 Catalogue) Esko Männikkö (Rare 1996 Catalogue)
In a 1996 review of Männikkö's work Daniel Birnbaum observed,
In relation to the snapshot aesthetics of much "trendy" 90s photography, Männikkö's images appear rather old-fashioned in their careful craftsmanship. They blend the transient quality of the documentary with a keen sense for colour and light that is sometimes reminiscent of classical painting, an association which is facilitated by the heavy wooden frames in which they are presented. The people depicted are surrounded by their belongings ­ decorations, mechanical gadgets, TV sets, and plastic kitchen utensils. These objects attain a symbolic function, as in Renaissance art.

More copies arriving in 2-4 weeks.

"Between 2006 and 2008 Martin Parr documented the beach culture in Latin American countries whilst travelling with his wife Susie (whose text accompanies the photos in the book). The book is a celebration of life and behaviour on the beaches of Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina and Chile.

The book is printed to look purposely cheap, with noticeable imperfections, somewhat like a book you'd find in 99-cent store, complete with offset colours and gaudy clip-art style graphics."—the publisher READ MORE
