Colette Campbell-Jones — Stories from Underground

Opening Friday, June 3rd, 2011 4-7pm
On Display through July 30th, 2011
photo-eye Gallery is located at
376-A Garcia, Santa Fe, NM 87501

Stories from Underground, by Colette Campbell-Jones are visual reconstructions of oral histories from the coal miners of South Wales. Campbell-Jones was inspired to retell the stories of this vanishing culture after spending time with her husband's family in the small town of Ton Petre.

Using a self described "hybrid process" combining documents with manipulated digital imagery, Campbell-Jones is able to interweave the various stories and histories of the Welsh mining communities into individual narratives. The images in Stories from Underground reference drawing and printmaking processes and appear almost as if they could be charcoal drawings.

Interviews: Michael Schmelling

There has been a lot of buzz around New York based photographer Michael Schmelling in the last year. His recent project Atlanta received a great amount of attention, being featured in a number of publications including Esquire, Turnstyle, Time magazine's Lightbox among many others. And its easy to see why Atlanta has garnered so much attention; not only is it a detailed view into the Georgia city's hip hop scene, the work transcends audiences, being simultaneously fine art, documentary, fashion and a testament to pop culture. The cultural abundance in Atlanta weaves together portraits of the people, the cars, tattoos, nightclubs, food, essays, interviews and many other intricate elements that make Atlanta one of the most visually powerful books to come out in the last year.

1h by Hans-Christian Schink

"Of late I have been more interested in the way that artists are pushing photography beyond straight-forward representation. Hans-Christian Schink has beautifully published a new series of images that do just that in 1h. In these 24 landscape photographs taken all around the globe, the recurring, defining subject is the black mark slashing through the sky. It causes each image to scramble our conceptions of what a photograph should be." — from the review by David Ondrik of 1h

Tooth for an Eye by Deborah Luster

"The conceit Deborah Luster arrived at for the circular images in her Tooth for an Eye project serves several metaphoric ends. First, it formally distinguishes her imagery from Joel Sternfeld's 1996 book On This Site: Landscape in Memoriam, depicting places where homicides occurred. There are other site-specific, homicide-related projects of late as well, though none with Luster's powerful interweaving of person, place, and lethal circumstance." — from the review by George Slade of Tooth for an Eye

John Burke & Simon Norfolk: Burke + Norfolk John Burke & Simon Norfolk: Burke + Norfolk—Signed
"In 2010 Simon Norfolk returned to Afghanistan. This time he followed in the footsteps of the 19th century Irish photographer John Burke, a superb, yet virtually unknown, war photographer. Burke's eloquent and beautiful photographs of the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-1880) provide an extraordinary record. Using unwieldy wet-plate collodion negatives and huge wooden cameras he shot landscapes, battle-fields, archaeological sites, street scenes, portraits of British officers and ethnological group portraits of Afghans in what amounts to a richly detailed record of an Imperial encounter." — the publisher READ MORE
