Crossing Siberia
"As a documentary photographer I have worked with refugees, immigrants, nomads, pilgrims, and exiles. I prefer to avoid war and other disasters, but I make an effort to face trouble's aftermath and look for visual notations of social well—being or distress. I search for the beauty of individuals within the uncertainty of circumstances. I look for the possibility of transcendence in spite of political or social opposition. I photograph because it is a way I can challenge assumptions."—Frank Ward

©Pentti Sammallahti
©Pentti Sammallahti
Gallery Associate Director, Heather Prichard has choosen Solovki, Venaja, Russia, 1992 by Pentti Sammallahti as her staff pick this week.

"I'm not exactly sure if it's because he's able to evoke more emotions with one single image than I've felt in years, or if it's because he is simply a genius with his camera and vision, but Pentti Sammallahti always has me coming back.

Not only does Pentti travel the world seeking a disappearing reality, he has the ability to make the viewer feel, and I believe that emotion is, from time to time, lost in translation with photography. Pentti's images are timeless and divine. I find myself asking, how is he able to capture the perfect moment in time, creating the most amazing photograph that you will never want to stop looking at? Presumably this is same reason that his photographic career began early in his youth, allowing him to exhibit worldwide from the age of 21. He then went on to teach at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki for 17 years and retired when he was given a 20-year grant (1991—2011) from the Finnish government." — Heather Prichard

reviewed by Stephen Hahn

George Tice is best known as a photographer of urban scenes, chiefly in New Jersey, mainly with a large format view camera, and entirely in black and white. Several of these aspects come together in Ticetown, a book comprised of just over three dozen images, some picturing remnants of historical Tice family effects...

John Baldessari: A Different Kind of Order (Major Exhibition Catalogue) John Baldessari: A Different Kind of Order (Major Exhibition Catalogue)
Burning his early paintings and producing his 1970 Cremation Project, John Baldessari embarked on a new quest to explore the relationships between painting and language, images and text, originality and authorship. This overview of his works up to the early 1980s, encompassing film, photography, and painting, show him rooting around with characteristic humor and poignancy. Now quite scarce, this is an essential book for anyone interested in Baldessari!

Ad Van Denderen: So Blue, So Blue Ad Van Denderen: So Blue, So Blue
"The starting point of So Blue, So Blue was in 2001 when Van Denderen photographed a group of a hundred illegal immigrants landing on a beach in the south of Spain in rubber boats. Soaked to the skin, they ran off in the early morning light. Three hours later tourists appeared on the same beach, spreading out their towels to enjoy another sunny day. Realising that the region is riven with these inconsistencies, he has spent the past 5 years photographing in every country that borders the Mediterranean Sea."—the publisher READ MORE

Every work is a response to a real-life event, a real—life situation."
