 Photographer's Showcase

Photographer's Showcase:
The Illuminati, Technically Intimate & Under the Influence by Evan Baden


We are pleased to announce that three new portfolios of photographs by Evan Baden can now be viewed on the Photographer's Showcase. Evan Baden is one of fifteen photographers included in our current group exhibition The Nude - Classical, Cultural, Contemporary. The photographs in our current 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. Baden's photographs explore contemporary culture, technology and human relationships. I have asked Baden to tell us about his background and his images. —Anne Kelly

 Interview with the Artist
Untitled from Nude Series -- Chris Enos

Interview with Chris Enos


"I photographed nudes for eight years. It represented freedom and independence from the moral judges. The feminist movement may have served as a support, but I think I was a feminist from birth. I have been in trouble for being outspoken most of my life." —Chris Enos

Our current exhibition, The Nude — Classical, Cultural, Contemporary, explores the many ways in which the nude form has been depicted in photography. One of the artists in the show, Chris Enos, explored the nude form with her camera in the 60s and 70s - a time when gender and sexuality demanded new understanding in the changing cultural landscape of America. I asked Enos to offer some insight into her working process, background and inspiration.

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Joshua Lutz: Hesitating Beauty

"I seldom spend much time looking at endpapers. They are typically about as interesting as theater lobby carpets. But Claudia Christen's design for the spaces opening and closing Joshua Lutz's new book prompted a lot of thought. They show one very conventional photograph, of a smiling, young woman in a red floral-print dress holding a container overflowing with white flowering vine; this image, recalling a garden party or some other al fresco event, has all the hallmarks of early 1960s orthodoxy. However, on the endpapers it has been multiplied perhaps two dozen times, refracted and distorted in bug-eye fashion; the attractive dark-haired woman appears, at times, inexplicably headless, or with her feet, a dark cloud, or a building emerging from her neck. Without overwhelming the remaining contents of the book, the endpapers advance the argument Lutz (and Christen, acknowledged co-editor as well as designer) have contrived in this fascinating portrait of mental disturbance within social normalcy, in the emerging suburban context that valued conformity and feared its betrayal." — from George Slade's review of Hesitating Beauty by Joshua Lutz

Ed Panar: Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes

"Ed Panar's Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes is a strange little saddle stitched book containing a series of black & white photographs — or perhaps more correctly, two series of black & white photographs, because when you get to the end, flip it over and turn it upside down, there's another book. With neither a back nor a front, it also avoids a beginning and an end. It's a fascinating experiment in sequencing and book design, in the same family as Thobias Faldt's 581c, where halfway through the book every image appears again, but in a different order. Faldt's book similarly has an endless feel as the repetition of images works to compel the reader back to the beginning, but it's not just the infinite nature of Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes that makes it captivating." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes by Ed Panar

Jessica Backhaus: Once, Still & Forever

"Jessica Backhaus' latest monograph Once, Still & Forever is a painterly reflection on time, place, and emotion. Those familiar with Backhaus' earlier titles Jesus and the Cherries, What Still Remains, One Day in November, or I Wanted to See the World know of her inquiring eye, and will be charmed by her continued exploration of the world's most delicate fragments. Before I even opened the book I marveled at the opalescent cloth on the cover, which shimmers purple from one direction and green from another. I may have a bit of object lust when in the proximity of deliberately designed photobooks but I found the same sort of magic and wonder present in Backhaus' photographs as I entered the pages. Her abstractions of the everyday are imbued with meaning and emotion in a way that is often difficult to put words to, but always marvelous to view." — from Shane Lavalette's review of Once, Still & Forever by Jessica Backhaus

Mike Brodie: <i>A Period of Juvenile Prosperity</i> Mike Brodie: A Period of Juvenile Prosperity

"But I needed to find out for myself. Two weeks later I was gone, witnessing my new world wizz by, especially at dusk, then darkness as I watched the sum of all the city lights cast my silhouette across the pine trees of the Florida panhandle. This was it, I was riding my very first freight train. And soon, what would begin as mere natural curiosity and self-discovery would evolve into a casting call of sorts, taking photographs of my newfound friends." —Mike Brodie

The first edition, first printing of A Period of Juvenile Prosperity is almost out-of-print. Stock will be arriving in one week. READ MORE
