Exhibition Opening This Weekend: Kelli Connell's Double Life

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an artist reception for Kelli Connell, this Friday, June 1st from 4:30-6:30pm at photo-eye Gallery, 376A Garcia Street, Santa Fe. Her exhibition Double Life runs through June 30th. This will be Connell's first exhibition at photo-eye Gallery.

Kelli Connell's series, Double Life, appears to document the evolving relationship between two women. By combining multiple negatives of the same model, Connell uses digital imaging techniques to create constructed realities. The model acts out various fictional scenarios, with the characters' body language and clothing changing in each image. The work represents Connell's investigation of identity, sexuality, and gender roles, as they shape and are expressed within intimate relationships. Through her photographs she addresses complex issues about visual rhetoric and the self.

Purchase a signed copy of Double Life.

Kelli Connell: Double Life Kelli Connell: Double Life—Signed

"In fact, Connell has photographed the same model portraying both of the women and then digitally combined the two images so seamlessly that not a trace remains of their construction. Connell has been at the forefront of artists using digital technologies for the past decade, but her art is not about Photoshop, and the photographs in Double Life extend far beyond their duplicity into larger and more complex issues of identity and visual rhetoric." — the publisher

At first blush the work of photographer Sanne Sannes looks a good deal like that of his contemporaries, Sam Haskins and Wingate Paine. But Sannes, a mythical figure who died in a car wreck in 1967 at age 30, has much more in common with the psychological explorations of filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. Equal parts Brian Jones and Antonioni's lens man Thomas — the character at the center Blow-Up, Sannes was called the Marquis de Sade of Holland by some. We've got two of his books up this week: The Face of Love (1972) and Oog om Oog (1964).

Also on the block: Koen Wessing's Chili, September 1973; Eggleston's Graceland; Ishimoto's Chicago, Chicago —& Much More! Be sure to watch Eric's weekly presentation below and check out all ten of this week's stellar listings!

Photo Zines: Casual Encounters

"Book 001 is titled Cameron, and opens with an image of the photographers shadow stretching across the front door of his subject's house. Inside, we get a few shots of the house's cinder block interior, and a few portraits of Cameron himself, nude, but looking more thoughtful than seductive. Josh, volume 002, is an older man, and his poses are both more sexual and aggressive, though his face is never visible — he stands naked facing the camera, hands covering his face. Volume 003, SPNDXBOI, is the strangest of the group, comprised of a series of nearly identical photographs of a man in variously colored zentia suits — spandex garments designed to conceal the entire body. He sits on the same colorless carpet, in the same pose, the same electrical cord strewn on the carpet behind him. Volume 004, Tom, stands out as somehow feeling more tender. It opens with a grid of images of cell phone base station antenna, and Tom sits for his portrait with a slight smile on his face. The latest book, Ron, is perhaps the most lonely feeling, opening with the exterior of a cheap motel and moving to photographs of a bed, one of which has a man laying on it." — Sarah Bradley from photo-eye Blog

A Closer Look: Pagan photographs by Andrei Liankevich

"Two of the features of design that make this book striking are the dark, often black, pages surrounding the images and the complimentary cinematic sequencing — it often feels like watching an old film. Each image, or sequence of images, is rife with symbolism which Liankenvich is so gracious to explain. In addition to the ritual descriptions in the back of the book, he presents the Glossary which defines how items thought to be associated with western iconography — images of saints, crosses, water — mix with the symbols of paganism: both proceeding in tandem to form the contemporary culture. This agrarian society has blended their daily belief systems and much of their life into symbolism and fairy tales." — Melanie McWhorter from the photo-eye Blog

Mary Ellen Mark: Prom

"I came to Prom through the back door, first watching the accompanying documentary directed by Martin Bell. This 35-minute series of interviews with some of the photo subjects was heartbreaking and funny and a reminder of how scary and heady it was to be that age. They're kids still, but not for much longer, and they're all keenly aware of that fact; you get the sense that they're trying to suck every last drop of youth from the bottom of the glass, making noises with their straws. The video quality of the DVD felt a little like a poorly streaming Netflix movie, but the substance of the interviews made up for what the DVD lacked in sharpness." — Liz Kuball from the review of Prom by Mary Ellen Mark
