Lauren Semivan, The Waves, 2011
Lauren Semivan, The Waves, 2011

We are pleased to announce the new portfolio, Observatory by Lauren Semivan on the Photographer's Showcase. She writes, "My interest in photography is interdisciplinary and synergistic, informed by the written word, painting, drawing, sculpture, and the raw material of human experience."

Semivan draws on the experiential nature of time and dreamlike states, utilizing the camera to suspend those experiences in a single, still frame. The photographs are highly composed in a studio setting with a combination of props such as tree branches, string, furniture, wishbones, curtains, mirrors and her own body, all working together in unison through form, light and shadow.

View Observatory by Lauren Semivan on the Photographer's Showcase.

For additional information about Lauren Semivan's work or to acquire a photograph, please contact the gallery at (505) 988-5152 x202 or by email.

Tomasz Wiech: Poland

"Tomasz Wiech and Michal Olszewski roam Poland looking for the bland and boring. With Wiech's photographs and Olszewski's writing they present a country in transition and willing to try anything. They do this with a wry sense of humor and a clear-eyed contemporary photographic vision. The photographs confront both the urban and rural land that has a long history and an open future. Wiech mixes bits of the past within the present landscape." — from Tom Leininger's review of Poland by Tomasz Wiech & Michal Olszewski

Ignasi Lopez: Agroperif�rics

"Gardens have a long and fascinating history. As transformed landscapes, gardens just as often provide nourishment as they do manicured sites of contemplation. Eschewing the fantasy of the bucolic family farm or the sublime horrors of corporate agriculture, the beautifully produced and designed Agroperif�rics by Ignasi Lopez explores the makeshift landscape of urban allotments. Translated loosely from Spanish, the title means 'peripheral gardens' or agriculture. Focused on reclaimed urban gardens on the outskirts of Barcelona, the book is equal parts field project and typology of urban agriculture, but in the end it's an affectionate document of ingenuity and resolve." — from Adam Bell's review of Agroperif�rics by Ignasi Lopez

Gerry Johansson: <i>Hattfabriken/Luckenwalde/Gerry Johansson</i> Hattfabriken/Luckenwalde/Gerry Johansson—Signed

"The building, Hutfabrik Friedrich Steinberg, Herrman & Co, in Luckenwalde is the first industrial building built in steel reinforced concrete and has a long and dramatic history. It was built by the Jewish families Herrman and Steinberg, 1921/23. They were forced to sell it in 1934 to the Nazi regime who started production of anti-aircraft guns. In 1945-56 it was turned into a repair hall for the Soviet army. The factory has since the early 2000's been rebuilt and restored.

The photographs are document the architectural details of the building and during Gerry Johansson's wanderings around the city, where he also found places and buildings that reflect the history of the factory and the tumultuous political periods from the 1920s to the present." —the publisher READ MORE
