Jamey Stillings' Ivanpah Solar

photo-eye Gallery is very excited to announce a new body of work by represented photographer Jamey Stillings: Ivanpah Solar.

Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, is a massive, near 400 Megawatt, solar thermal electric generation system designed to power over 140,000 homes across Southern California. From its ground breaking in 2009, the project has created quite a footprint in the southeastern desert. Photographed from the air deep in the Mojave Desert of California, Stillings' photographs of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System draw in sharp relief the organic patterns of nature and how we as humankind mark and mar the landscape.

Read Stillings' statement on the work on photo-eye Blog.

View Portfolio

The Ivanpah Solar series will be on view at photo-eye Gallery through the end of November as part of the Solar exhibit.

Stillings will give a talk about this new body of work at the Center For Contemporary Arts - Munoz Waxman Gallery on Sunday, November 11th at 4:00pm. 1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, NM.

David Alan Harvey: (based on a true story)

"Well, there's a new book out by David Alan Harvey called (based on a true story) and it rather sets a new high water mark in imaginative, effective book design. Add the fact that it's intelligent, sexy and really, really cool and you end up with a book that is certainly the most enjoyable I have handled in the last few years. And it's fun. It comes in a box overprinted with a black and white crazy paving design. Open that up and there's a cloth-covered slipcase, again with a black and white design. Then you're into the book. The cover is an unsaturated picture of a girl in a bikini. Pale pinks and light blues mix with a beach ball, an ice-cream and some big Brazilian buttocks. Yay, we're not in Kansas anymore! Let a thousand clich├ęs blossom!" — from Colin Pantall's review of (based on a true story) by David Alan Harvey

Lester B. Morrison: House of Coates

"Utilizing everything from zine formats, spiral bindings, folded pages, to books within books, LBM creates memorable books that are affordable, with more than a tinge of DIY mentality. Though small in stature, LBM is huge in its influence on contemporary photographic practice. Case in point is House of Coates by Minneapolis writer and LBM collaborator, Brad Zellar. House of Coates is also the name of a real life, much beloved bar & grill in Rosemont, Minnesota, near the Twin Cities where the LBM crew resides, famous for their Swanee burger. This is not a direct ode to the bar, but instead, an exquisitely haunting, melancholic treasure of a book about people who drop out and populate tiny towns and rural communities, and the longing and loneliness of the human condition." — from Judy Natal's review of House of Coates by Lester B. Morrison

Karianne Bueno: <i>Asper</i> Karianne Bueno: Asper

"Asper is a dreamy portrait of a tiny village in Flemish Belgium. Ms. Bueno's camera floats, for example, above a tangle of green forest, a sunny backyard plot with a child and his toys, a midday river picnic, and an empty street at night. As fanciful as it is non-fictional, Asper is also equal parts tender and regretful: through the nostalgia, 'the oppressive feeling of living in a small rural community is never far away. The quiet idyll might turn to melancholy, or loneliness, or fear.'" —the publisher

"I make photographs worthy of human spirit. To understand my work, the viewer agrees to enter a world of belief and wonder, of time and timelessness, of hope and fear in order to confront the heights and depths that form our lives.It is a privilege and great responsibility to devote to art. My vocation is to create totally personal and unique art, which is the transformation of my vision into photographs. I make the work in order to create contemporary images of human history. The subject of my photographs is the human soul." — Joel-Peter Witkin, September 2012
