Photographer's Showcase: Nudes in Water by Karin Rosenthal


We are pleased to announce that a full portfolio of photographs from the Nudes in Water series by Karin Rosenthal are now available through the Photographer Showcase. Karin Rosenthal is one of the fifteen photographers included in our current group exhibition The Nude — Classical, Cultural, Contemporary. The photographs in this exhibit range from classical studies to the exploration of cultural and contemporary themes; some are playful and some investigate more existential realms, while others manage to combine multiple elements. Rosenthal has been photographing the human form for over 30 years creating images that are surreal yet classical. I have asked Rosenthal to tell us about her background and her images. —Anne Kelly

Paul Graham: 1981 & 2011

"If you are unaware of Graham's photography David Campany's essay between the two series, Noticing, is worth the price of the book. In addition to the essay there is a short explanation of the award and how Graham fits into its history by Dragana Vujanovic and Louise Wolthers. Campany fluidly takes the reader through Graham's career. He touches on the nature of photography and narrative, weaving together a tight essay that rewards the careful reader. He relates the work to the times in which they were made and how that has influenced contemporary photography. He touches on the themes of Graham's work and how he bends time. If you need an introduction to Graham, this essay is the perfect place to start." — from Tom Leininger's review of 1981 & 2011 by Paul Graham

Michal Luczak: Brutal

"Brutal by Michal Tuczak is a book like many other books; it tries to tell the story of a place and its people. It is a documentary. All the photos in Brutal are of the Katowice Station in Katowice, Poland and of the people who make their way there to take the train into other cities for work and leisure. These are photographs of shadow and concrete, torn clothes and weathered faces. Tuczak photographed the Katowice station between July 2010 and January 2011 before it was to be refurbished. His hope was to capture the station in its 20th century glory before it, like most things, made the transition to our own century. Tuczak is nostalgic to say the least and these photographs capture that. This is a document about travel and travelers that never touches on destinations but, rather departures and returns." — from Christopher Johnson's review of Brutal by Michael Luczak

War is Only Half the Story, Vol. 5

"War is Only Half the Story, a book of documentary photographs, reveals visual narratives about the fortitude of humanity in the wake of war. Five projects show people learning to live again — rebuilding families, homes, and societies. The book is published by The Aftermath Project, an American non-profit organization dedicated to broadening the public's understanding of 'the true cost of war — and the real price of peace.' The book recalls the words of essayist, poet, and farmer, Wendell Berry. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, he wrote in In the Presence of Fear: 'What leads to peace is not violence but peaceableness... We should recognize that while we have extravagantly subsidized the means of war, we have almost totally neglected the ways of peaceableness.'" — from Janelle Lynch's review of War is Only Half the Story, Vol. 5 by various photographers

John Willis: <i>Views from the Reservation</i> John Willis: Views from the Reservation—Signed

"Professor and photographer John Willis is well aware of the exploitation that sometimes occurs when photographers enter impoverished communities for a project. So, in 1992, when he first traveled to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the southwest corner of South Dakota, he assured the elders of the Oglala Lakota Sioux that he would not be exhibiting any of the images he took while there. Over time, however, Willis earned the respect and trust of the community, and the elders - hoping that the photographs might bring aid to their community - urged him to show his work. The product of several visits to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Views from the Reservation is meant to open our eyes, minds, and hearts to the life, culture, and conditions of the Oglala Lakota people." —the publisher READ MORE

Free public lecture by photographer John Willis
Thursday, March 28th at 6pm
Tipton Hall at the Santa Fe University of Art & Design


Views from the Reservation — John Willis made the photographs in this exhibition and book during his extended visits to the Pine Ridge Reservation, tribal home of the Oglala Lakota Sioux People. The photographs depict "people who live in one of the poorest counties in the United States, literally a third world within the borders of the richest country on earth," said Willis.

Willis received his MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1986. He is a professor of photography at Marlboro College and co-founder of The In-Sight Photography Project and the Exposures cross-cultural youth arts program, both of which teach photography skills to young people so they can document their experiences, cultures, and communities. Willis is a recipient of a 2011 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous institutions, including the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; the Bibliothèque nationale de France; the George Eastman House; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Library of Congress; and the National Museum of the American Indian.
