Fritz Liedtke's portfolio Astra Velum

"April, a freckled woman whom I photographed for this series, told me a story from her childhood. One day after playing outside, her grandmother asked her to go wash up. She went to the bathroom and did so, but grandma wasn't satisfied. 'Your face isn't clean! Go scrub it some more!' The young girl was distraught, for all that was left on her skin were her freckles, and no amount of scrubbing would make them go away.

While many people view freckles as an aberration or blemish, my response is the opposite. I find them enchanting, unique, even exotic. More than once, while photographing for this series, a model thanked me for making something beautiful out of what they often viewed as a flaw." — Fritz Liedtke

Walker Evans: Floyd Burroughs and Family, Alabama, 1936 (Estate Print) Walker Evans: Floyd Burroughs and Family, Alabama, 1936 (Estate Print)
"Throughout Evans' long career...commentators often remarked on the transparency of his pictures. They were thought to represent the thing itself, seemingly without intervention. Thought of as pure documents, their transformative power was downplayed. But Evans' photographs are in fact highly mediated representations, actively making a world even as they record it. They are documentary interventions of the highest order"—David Levi-Strauss in Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books

A Closer Look — Burke + Norfolk

"Dewi Lewis' new publication Burke + Norfolk may be the best book I have seen come out this year. When taking into account content, design, reproduction quality and sequencing, this monograph is an exceptional over-sized object.

Loosely rephotographic in nature, this book is Simon Norfolk's revisitation of the work of little known 19th century Irish photographer John Burke. Burke was the first photographer to make images in Afghanistan while accompanying British forces during the years of 1878-1880. The result of Burke's travels produced several photographic albums the photographer sold following the British invasion." — Antone Dolezal

photo-eye Gallery Artist Update

Filmmaker Brad Kremer has collaborated with photo-eye Gallery photographer Michael Levin to produce an atmospheric short film of Levin shooting in Japan. The film highlights Levin making photographs in a number of locations, visually describing his process with a beauty similar to Levin's own photographs. It's a special behind the scenes look at this photographer's stunning work. The film features a song by Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp. You can read more about Kremer's project here. You can view the full video on our blog here.

We also wanted to share with you a few images from the installation of gallery artist David Trautrimas' work on exhibit at the Seoul Art Center in South Korea. The exhibit, called Imagine Earth, features work from Trautrimas' Spyfrost series, which you can see on photo-eye Gallery here.

Maske by Phyllis Galembo

"I found a promotional flyer for Phyllis Galembo's work a few years ago and tacked it prominently to my wall at home. It has received more comments than any one image in that collage, prompting a range of responses though mostly centered on profound curiosity. The flyer depicts several men in head-to-toe knit garments, brightly colored and intricately patterned. No one was quite sure what to make of it — the mysterious unusual nature of the image is captivating, but also familiar." — from the review by Sarah Bradley of Maske

Skate Park by Arthur Tress

"In Skate Park, photographer Arthur Tress begins by describing the park itself, presenting each curve and undulation of this concrete landscape as a sculptural work of art. Dreadlocks and tattoos appear shortly thereafter; tanned and leathery skin stretched tightly over the lean frames of young men competing for air and glory. Tress romanticizes their condition. Wheels become wings as they use gravity and momentum to launch a fleeting attempt at freedom." — from the review by Daniel W. Coburn of Skate Park

 Book of the Week
Bruce Wrighton: At Home Bruce Wrighton: At Home
"With Bruce Wrighton's At Home we now present the first four-colour project in our series of limited edition photography books for collectors. On 128 pages, with 81 images — most of them full size — the book shows the every day life of a little town in the eighties.

Bruce Wrighton's work spanned a relatively small area, the downtown of Binghamton, New York, and a few nearby cities, and he had only a relatively short time to do it in, for he died in 1988 at the age of 38." — the publisher
