 photo-eye Gallery Opening

photo-eye will be showing Michael Levin's Continuum, an exhibition of images opening at photo-eye Gallery on December 16th. You can view more work from the upcoming exhibition here.

Over ten years ago Levin began his photographic journey in the Pacific Northwest and has since broadened his geographic horizons into Japan, Iceland, France, the US and beyond. Though Levin's photographs are made in a wide range of locations, the individual images are not necessarily about the specific place, but rather a moment in time and the experience of arriving there. Instead of seeking out a predetermined location, Levin travels and waits for a location to speak to him in a process that he describes more intuitive then logical.

Also on display will be new photographs from Laurie Tümer's portfolio I'd Rather Look at Clouds.

For more information please contact Anne Kelly at or call the gallery at 505-988-5152 x202.

 Book of the Week
Michael Levin: Zebrato Michael Levin: Zebrato
"Michael Levin's award-winning and extraordinarily beautiful photographs have a very painterly quality. In a recent feature profile, the American fine art magazine Focus declared 'Michael Levin's captivating images are soulful and evocative; he is truly one of the rising stars in photography.'

Using long exposures Levin reduces the landscape to elemental shapes. Each image has a simplicity and purity capturing the essence of the landscape. Many of his photographs feature water and clouds, and show what has been described as 'the smooth skin of light', yet it is the architectural intrusions into these clean spaces that most engage him. Wooden posts, concrete barriers, weathered rocks, dilapidated jetties, even the elegant shape of French topiaries introduce elements which seem to haunt the landscape and introduce a human presence." — the publisher READ MORE

History's Shadow by David Maisel

"We want to see more, know how, figure things out. Surface only gets us so far, so we look inside hoping the revelation of parts will illuminate the whole. If the mind and spirit spark this quest, then technology often drives it and photography has been along for the ride for nearly two centuries. In History's Shadow from Nazraeli Press, David Maisel goes inside and out and finds another way to show us something we've never seen before." — Karen Jenkins from the review of History's Shadow by David Maisel

"The Half-Life of History: The Atomic Bomb and Wendover Air Base, published by Radius Books, is a collection of photographs by Mark Klett and text by William L. Fox that explore Wendover Airbase, where in the 1940s the US Army Air Corps trained to drop atomic bombs from Boeing B-29 Superfortress aircraft. The book opens with photographs whose rough half-tone pattern indicate they are taken directly from historic archives. " — David Ondrik from the review of The Half-Life of History by Mark Klett

A Closer Look — L'Illusion Du Tranquille

"I am always on the lookout for innovative social or environmental landscape work and everyone here knows it when I find a killer new book. L'Illusion Du Tranquille by French photographer Francois Deladerriere is one of those books. Deladerriere's trek through the French landscape isn't presented in the most uniquely designed book nor is it wildly striking in approach. The images are just really good." — Antone Dolezal

David Gibson on Photographing Eagle Nest Lake

Currently on display at photo-eye Gallery is a group exhibition that includes a few new images by David H. Gibson. Gibson is primarily a self-taught photographer. After years of developing and refining his photographic technique he has received quite a bit of attention, especially for his panoramic landscapes of Texas and the Four Corners region. One day when Gibson was photographing in the fog he had the realization that he could photograph the same subject over and over with very different results each time based on the changing light and moving fog. It was this moment that led Gibson to start exploring more abstract realms of nature. David H. Gibson's newest images are from Eagle Nest Lake — a lake that has captured his interest for quite some time. I have asked David to tell us a little bit about his fascination with this area. Enjoy. — Anne Kelly
