John Chervinsky's Studio Physics

"Building on the visual poetics of observation expressed in his previous series, Chervinsky's portfolio Studio Physics seeks to find a way to capture a duration of time in a photograph, stretching the interval of image capture from mere seconds to weeks. Chervinsky has done so by engaging in a clever collaboration of sorts; setting up a still life, he shoots a photograph, crops a portion of it and sends the detail to a painting factory in China. Over the course of several weeks, an artist on the other side of the world produces the painting and the artwork is shipped back to the United States. In the meantime, Chervinky's still life has sat and aged, an amount of time elegantly expressed when the painting is then placed again into the still life and rephotographed." — Sarah Bradley from the interview with Chervinsky on photo-eye Blog

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 from 4:30-6:30pm in photo-eye Gallery, 376A Garcia Street, Santa Fe. 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.

Purchase a signed copy of Double Life.

"When I first encountered works by Issei Suda (born 1940 in Tokyo) several years ago, it was more than the discovery of a photographer I had never heard of before. For me, the names Araki and Moriyama represented the epitome of Japanese post-war photography." — the publisher

Affordable Art: Great Limited Editions Under $200, Volume 2



Print images shown by Marisa Portolese, Thatcher Hullerman Cook and José Pedro Cortes, respectively.


In a September 2011 post, I wrote on the wealth of limited editions that were popping up for a more than affordable price — under $200. These limited editions are a fantastic way to collect books along with, in most cases, a loose gallery quality print. Since the last showcase of books and prints, we have received some other offerings that are especially worthy of note. All limited editions are also available in a trade edition.

Included in the post are Antonia's Garden by Marisa Portolese, Black Apple by Thatcher Hullerman Cook, Things Here and Things Still to Come by José Pedro Cortes. Read Melanie McWhorter's full post on photo-eye Blog.

A Closer Look — The Dutch Photobook

"The increasing number of books on photobooks have lead some to speculate on the ultimate purpose of books like these, but they are undoubtedly a good resource for many. The book's introduction places some of the Dutch photobook's reputation on the collaborations between photographers and designers, who between 1945 and 1968 shared a single trade union, allowing for, as the introduction puts it, 'cross-pollination,' and starting a tradition of designer/photographer partnerships that continue to yield impressive results." — From the photo-eye Blog post by Sarah Bradley

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Ron Jude: Lick Creek Line Ron Jude: Lick Creek Line

"The book begins with directions, surreptitiously tucked under the dust jacket, that lead us through the woods and towards the Lick Creek line. Although they are clear, they are also sufficiently vague that one might get lost, and end by stating, 'the trail recedes into the unmarked forest.' A foreboding tone that hints at the confusion that lies ahead. Shortly after following a man in the woods, we are immediately engulfed by the river. White water churns and splashes all around us until we emerge on the far shore and are safely back with the trapper." — From Adam Bell's review of Lick Creek Line by Ron Jude

Paul Graham: The Present Paul Graham: The Present
"Flip open the book, and the cover is replicated over 114 pages set out in a series of diptychs and triptychs, all shot on the streets of Manhattan. So you open the book and see a picture. Flip a page or open a gatefold and another image appears, remarkably similar to the first. So you look back at the first and start to notice the differences. Then you go on to the next picture and repeat the process. Looking at the book, turning the pages, opening the gatefolds builds up a rhythm." — From Colin Pantall's review of The Present by Paul Graham

Michael Schmidt: Lebensmittel Michael Schmidt: Lebensmittel
"Photographer Michael Schmidt's latest obsession is the mechanized, industrialized food system of contemporary Western culture. Using his trademark style combining social documentary and urban topographics, he explores the fascinating topic of how we feed ourselves, from the farm to the table (or the fast-food restaurant). This impeccably produced book, clothbound, embossed and slipcased, is a series of images only — no text — that looks at the processes and residue of the food system in Europe. The images are arresting, and the subject matter urgent, whether it's a huge pile of discarded food or the details of turning nutrition into big business."—the publisher READ MORE
