American Portraits 1979-1986 by Leo Borensztein

"Portraiture is always an exchange, wanted or unwanted, between the artist and the subject. More often than not, the subject is willing and submits. As subjects, there is always a degree of performance whether intentional or not. We chose certain outfits, wear or adjust make-up, adopt a pose that reflects our assumed identity or simply strike a photogenic pose learned by practice or through other images. Diane Arbus famously stated that her images explored 'the gap between intention and effect.' This is rich territory for any photographer. Add to that tension the richness of history, race and class, and there is an even greater possibility for complex and engaging work." — from Adam Bell's review of American Portraits 1979-1986 by Leo Borensztein

The Automaton by Paolo Ventura

"The Automaton shows the adult fabulist Ventura in peak form. The story opens with a full-length portrait of an elderly Venetian wanderer, an ambulatory ghost of the Jewish ghetto during World War II. The portrait is a brilliant gambit in this game of fact and fantasy; our sense of reality—indeed, the desire for reality that photography promulgates—is tweaked by details that seem unavoidably 'true to life' while others challenge veracity. This paradoxical image engages us in a story presented like a child's picture book—a sentence or two on the left side of a spread with an illustration on the right, both pages working to advance the narrative, both descriptive systems functioning economically and expressively." — from George Slade's review of The Automaton by Paolo Ventura

A Closer Look — A Natural Order

"A lot has already been written about Lucas Foglia's A Natural Order in various online publications, and the press is well deserved. Foglia's photographs are first and foremost stunning. The large-format design by Nazraeli is fitting for the mixture of portraiture and landscapes contained in the book's pages. And the work itself has to give a nod to Justine Kurland's This Train is Bound for Glory and Joel Sternfeld's Sweet Earth: Experimental Utopias in America. But personally, I like this work more than its inspiring predecessors. And what really interests me is that this book is a perfect example of an evolving dialogue that photographer's toss back and forth between each other and their comparable subject matter." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog

Julie Blackmon on 'Concert' and 'Airstream'

In a few weeks we will publish an interview with Blackmon to the photo-eye blog, but in the meantime Blackmon has shared with us some stories and thoughts behind a few of her images.

"I had wanted to to a family camp site for awhile, because I liked the idea of doing cloud of bugspray, where the parent was spraying the child. It's one of those things that we do as parents that's protective, yet semi-violent at the same time — because it's pretty much poison."— Julie Blackmon

Anders Petersen: Soho Anders Petersen: Soho

"The Soho described by Robert Louis Stevenson in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde as 'a district of some city in a nightmare' is dramatically different to the one discovered in 2011 by renowned Swedish photographer Anders Petersen. As part of a series of off-site artist commissions supported by Bloomberg, Petersen was invited by The Photographers' Gallery to undertake a four-week residency in the bubbling creative underbelly of London. Turning his direct and unflinching gaze to the streets of Soho, Petersen produced a series which is both penetrating and sensitive to his subjects." — the publisher READ MORE

Summer Lecture Series

PART THREE -
The REMIX Culture: Appropriation Art and Fair Use in the Digital Age
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 6:30-8:00 pm
photo-eye Gallery is located at 376-A Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM 87501

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to present a Summer Lecture Series in collaboration with New Mexico Lawyers for the Arts, a nonprofit dedicated to providing artists and arts organizations with pro bono legal assistances and educational programming.

As issues of appropriation and remixing increasingly flood our culture, copyright infringement lawsuits are on the rise. In the final part of our Art Law series, a range of experts from across the legal, business and creative realms of art (an attorney, a dealer, an arts consultant and an appropriation artist), will discuss the creative methods and ideas associated with appropriation in art today.

Using the facts from the high profile Cariou vs Prince appropriation case, the panel will discuss the importance of appropriation and forms of visual referencing in our culture, the differences between transformative works and infringement and whether current copyright laws provide sufficient protection while preserving an artist's freedom to reference the work of others.

All events are free and open to the public on a first come, first serve basis.

Read Melanie McWhorter's blog post on the lecture series on photo-eye Blog.

Watch the video of our first lecture Protecting your Rights as a Photographer by Efrain Padro here.

"During the sugar cane harvesting of 1983, while I was photographing along the Mississippi River, I would often pass an isolated house. The subtle signs of a presence were finally confirmed one day when I noticed smoke coming from the chimney. It was not until the harvesting of the following year that I met the inhabitant of the house, Polly Joseph." — Debbie Fleming Caffery. READ MORE
