Also on Display at the photo-eye Gallery

"The current exhibition at photo-eye Gallery is the Cranach Series by Carla van de Puttelaar, but also on display is a selection of photo-eye gallery artists. I requested that each artist tell us a little something about their images that are included in this exhibition. If you live in Santa Fe or will be visiting, I invite you to stop by the gallery and take a look. If you are not in Santa Fe it is my hope that this blog post will allow you to experience this exhibit (virtually, anyway) and obtain a more personal understanding of each piece. Enjoy!" — Anne Kelly

Antone's Pick: Cuny Janssen

"I have long admired Cuny Janssen's ability to weave a story through the use of portraiture and landscape. Her monograph There Is Something in the Air is a superb example. The images overlap from one page to the next giving the illusion that the objects in the landscape mimic the subjects in her portraits. I walk away from this book feeling a deeper connection to her subjects after having a sense of the environment they exist in. The subtlety of her photographs can present a stark contrast to the realization of the lives her subjects lead." — Antone Dolezal

Photoworks Books Have Arrived: Gill, Kawauchi and Soth

"This year's Brighton Photo Biennial was curated by Martin Parr and as part of this photographic festival, Parr selected some photographers who were commissioned to produce work for the event. The resulting projects were exhibited in New Documents at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in October 2nd-November 14th, 2010. The resulting publications — Stephen Gill's Outside In, Rinko Kawauchi's Murmuration, and Alec and Carmen Soth's Brighton Picture Hunt — are a snapshot into an outsider's view of Brighton in each of the artist's characteristic style with one exception, Brighton Picture Hunt."

Mariken Wessels: Queen Ann. P.S. Belly Cut Off Mariken Wessels: Queen Ann. P.S. Belly Cut Off

"Mariken Wessels' second art book is titled Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off. Here again, the photographs are sourced from an existing person, a middle-aged woman wringing with her self-image in an endless stream of manipulated photographs of herself, making them into a true cabinet of curiosities. The authentic arrangement of the discovered material, with its strange mixture of old and new photographs, film material and collages is strikingly deceptive. In fact, both in Elisabeth - I want to eat - as well as in Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off, it is the hand of the fine craftswoman Mariken Wessels at work. The suggestive, intimate force of the 'found' photographic material and other personal documents, as well as the sequencing of the images as a whole, are both deliberately arranged with great precision."

About the Limited Edition

The Boombox Project by Lyle Owerko

"Those of us who are old enough to remember getting our audio-fix from a player that was riddled with mechanical buttons, knobs, and levers will immediately be charmed by Lyle Owerko's in-depth study of a device that turned the underground on its ear. At first glance, The Boombox Project might conjure feelings of nostalgia for a generation that experienced beatbox culture first-hand, and it will definitely be prized as a great novelty by those who may only experience the era vicariously through the imagery presented in this 160 page volume." — From the review by Daniel W. Coburn of Lyle Owerko's The Boombox Project

Destroy This Memory by Richard Misrach

"There is something tantalizing about this book, and it could be his encroaching on occupied territory. Weren't Robert Polidori and maybe a hundred other photographers here in New Orleans earlier? No, what I meant by "occupied territory" was the proximity of living people to the photographer at work. Misrach, in his "Desert Cantos" series most significantly, deals with culture's byproducts and aftereffects, the traces of human decisions to inflict damage on landscapes." — From the review by George Slade of Richard Misrach's Destroy This Memory

Thoughts on Landscape by Frank Gohlke

"Frank Gohlke's Thoughts on Landscape: Collected Writings and Interviews is a delightful meditation on place, or in this instance, the various places one inhabits during an artistic career of over 30 years: Wichita Falls, Texas; the North Dakota prairies; rural Minnesota farmlands; Mount St. Helens in the Cascade Range of Southwestern Washington; and the Sudbury River in Eastern Massachusetts. Although Gohlke abandoned his graduate studies in English literature during his third year at Yale because of debilitating writer's block, he gleaned more than adequate writing skills to amass this series of articulate essays collected from years of looking and thinking deeply about images - both his own and those of his friends, colleagues, and students." — From the review by Mary Anne Redding of Frank Gohlke's Thoughts on Landscape

The Critic's Eye by Richard Bartholomew

"Slim, subdued, unassuming even, this small hardback, published jointly by a trio of photographic institutions based in India, sets out to afford the most respectful and thoughtful possible summation of the late Richard Bartholomew's work as a photographer. From the subtle, simple cover, swathed in muted duck-egg blue and featuring a small, enigmatic black-and-white image - a woman gracefully throwing her sari over her shoulder, glimpsed as through a door stood ajar - the book feels calculated to communicate an atmosphere of quiet, earnest aesthetic observation and contemplation." — From the review by Faye Robson of Richard Bartholomew's The Critic's Eye

 Book of the Week
Stephen Gill: Coming Up for Air Stephen Gill: Coming Up for Air—Signed

"Coming up for Air is the result of Stephen Gill's long-term photographic body of work made in Japan between 2008 & 2009. Though the images were made in Japan they are not essentially about Japan. These images create a chance to sink into a kind of fictional aquatic world that somehow leaves you gasping for breath.

The book is made up of faint and often barely audible traces from the real world. "Imagine holding your breath and putting your fingers in your ears to mute the chaos of the modern world." Unlike other well known series by Gill this time the information in his images has been starved or completely denied, like muffled chaos through squinted eyes."—the publisher READ MORE
