Exhibition Opening: Kelli Connell's Double Life

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Kelli Connell from her series Double Life. The exhibition runs May 8th through June 30th with an artist reception on June 1st. This will be Connell's first exhibition at photo-eye Gallery.

Kelli Connell's series, Double Life, appears to document the evolving relationship between two women. By combining multiple negatives of the same model, Connell uses digital imaging techniques to create constructed realities. The model acts out various fictional scenarios, with the characters' body language and clothing changing in each image. The work represents Connell's investigation of identity, sexuality, and gender roles, as they shape and are expressed within intimate relationships. Through her photographs she addresses complex issues about visual rhetoric and the self.

Contact Anne Kelly, photo-eye Gallery Associate Director, for further information on Kelli Connell's work. Visit photo-eye online Galleries.

Parasomnia by Viviane Sassen

"The cover photograph of Viviane Sassen's new book Parasomnia shows a young boy floating facedown in flowing water. Only his outstretched arms and his curly hair emerge from the milky-blue current. The ambiguities of this photo set the tone for the book: there is a frequent feeling of suffocation and disorientation, the intimation of death that comes from holding one's breath for too long, but there is also a strong element of play, a feeling of buoyancy and laughter — though perhaps with a more desperate edge than in her previous work." — Alexandra Huddleston from the review of Parasomnia

Interview: Jeff Rich

We've been pleased to exhibit the Watershed series on the Photographer's Showcase and were thrilled in 2010 to see Rich win the Critical Mass Book Award from photolucida. After a wonderful collaboration between photolucida, designer Lauren Henkin and Rich, the book is out, and it is perhaps the finest that photolucida has ever produced. Jeff Rich was kind enough to take some time to talk with us about the Watershed project, the book and continuing the project downriver.

A Closer Look - Öglunda

"Appropriately, Robert Adams has written the introduction to Öglunda, Johannson's new publication by GunGallery. The photographs — taken between August 2010 to November of 2011 — are a survey of the Skara municipality in Sweden. The photographs of farms and the quiet countryside reflect the small agricultural community, sparse forests and roaming livestock. It is a simple story, but Johansson has created a series that is thoughtful in its simplicity. The artist's depictions of the surrounding forest are some of the most elegant photographs I have seen in a long while." — Antone Dolezal

Richard Rothman: Redwood Saw Richard Rothman: Redwood Saw
"In the summer of 2004, Richard Rothman traveled west with a 4x5 camera to explore the remaining fragments of ancient old-growth forests in Northern California. He pitched a tent amid the mammoth stands of redwoods and began making formal, intricate portraits of the forest, which he describes as "the most visually stimulating environment I had ever been in." Unexpectedly, he also began developing an interest in the neighboring town of Crescent City, an economically depressed logging and fishing community. Rothman was affected by the town's architecture, its emotional tenor, its political and religious culture, and the sometimes unconscious relationship that the townspeople had with the corralled forest to the east and the Pacific Ocean, which represents the end of the Western frontier." — the publisher

About the Limited Edition

This special edition of Redwood Saw is available in 2 versions. Each is limited to 25 copies and includes an original print, numbered and signed by the artist and presented in a clamshell box.

"Between 1993 and 1996, Joel Sternfeld photographed fifty infamous crime sites around the US. On This Site, contains images of these unsettlingly normal places, ordinary landscapes left behind after tragedies, their hidden stories disturbingly invisible. Each photograph is accompanied by a text describing the crime that took place at the location. This is the first Steidl edition of On This Site, originally published in 1996 to great acclaim." — the publisher READ MORE

DIY: Photographers & Books
August 11 to December 30, 2012
Cleveland Museum of Art

A new golden age of the photobook has dawned thanks to digital printing technology and web-based distribution services that allow rapid, inexpensive production of books in quantities from one copy to thousands. This exhibition is the first museum show to focus on the impact of print-on-demand publishing on contemporary photographic practice. Instead of images on the wall, the room will be dominated by a long table where a visual banquet of 75-100 photobooks will await the visitor. Several examples of historic and unique books will be in cases, but for most of the volumes, touching, reading, and re-reading will be encouraged. The books will be by regional, national, and international artists. Plans include a computer station where visitors can try their own hand at producing a photobook. Barbara Tannenbaum, curator of Photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art, invites submissions for the first museum exhibition to focus on print-on-demand books. DIY: Photographers & Books will take place fall/winter 2012.

For more information on submission guidelines click here or email photography@clevelandart.org.
