Richard Misrach: On the Beach

On the Beach
Photographs by Richard Misrach.
Aperture, New York, 2007.

Light, color, and form are crucial components in "Misrach's explorations of difficult subjects. In this body of work he uses a gorgeous, slowly shifting color palette gleaned from changes in depth and tide; abstract patterns of waves and rippling water, and beaches both empty and cluttered. Throughout the series, Misrach carefully balances the minutiae of human gesture against the massive scale of the sea. In some images, a lone figure floats in a liquid field of brilliant turquoise-or in others, lies beached and partially buried." — the publisher

TONIGHT! Summer Lecture Series

The REMIX Culture: Appropriation Art and Fair Use in the Digital Age
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 6:30-8:00 pm
photo-eye Gallery is located at 376-A Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM 87501

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to present a Summer Lecture Series in collaboration with New Mexico Lawyers for the Arts, a nonprofit dedicated to providing artists and arts organizations with pro bono legal assistances and educational programming.

As issues of appropriation and remixing increasingly flood our culture, copyright infringement lawsuits are on the rise. In the final part of our Art Law series, a range of experts from across the legal, business and creative realms of art (an attorney, a dealer, an arts consultant and an appropriation artist), will discuss the creative methods and ideas associated with appropriation in art today.

Using the facts from the high profile Cariou vs Prince appropriation case, the panel will discuss the importance of appropriation and forms of visual referencing in our culture, the differences between transformative works and infringement and whether current copyright laws provide sufficient protection while preserving an artist's freedom to reference the work of others.

All events are free and open to the public on a first come, first serve basis.

Interviews: Julie Blackmon On Inspiration, Play and Image Making

"Some of my first images were of my younger sisters in their roller skates taking a break on the porch steps with their mosquito bitten legs, or eating donuts while watching the money box at our garage sale. I guess the moments I was drawn to then are the kind of moments I'm still drawn to now. In some ways it has nothing to do with photography. If I were a writer, they are moments I would write about, or if I was making a film, they would be the inspiration behind that as well." - Julie Blackmon

 photo-eye Book Reviews
from Sunder
from Sunder

Bruce Haley: Sunder

"Bruce Haley can tell a dark and lonely story. The darkness often comes from the reality of the subjects he photographs, while the loneliness is inevitably his own. I imagine Haley wandering through empty fields or industrial ruins, quietly observing and listening to the land, the sounds of running water or birds overhead. I imagine the low rumble of a distant tractor and Haley silently conceptualizing how he will capture the ambient noise on a two-dimensional sheet of film. There is a personal connection Haley cultivates with his subjects that is rare to see in contemporary photography." — from Antone Dolezal's review of Sunder by Bruce Haley

Kael Alford: Bottom of Da Boot

"A simple, tattooed outline on the arm of Jacob Walker, coupled with the phrase 'bottom of the da boot,' gives Kael Alford's collection its title and most concrete, immutable rendering of Louisiana's southeastern coast. Her photographs speak to both the immediate fallout of Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the pernicious environmental losses endured by this wetland region over decades." — from Karen Jenkin's review of Bottom of Da Boot by Kael Alford

"Page after page we are led into a void where all things seem to have lost their name, creating a restless and suspended time.

"More than looking at physical spaces, we feel as if in an endless present tense. There is Emptiness, but a desired one.

"Rien is André Cepeda's second book. Ontem, his first book, was published in 2009, to critical and public acclaim." — the publisher
