Announcing Art Photo Index's inaugural exhibition: Fear & Loathing

We're pleased to announce the opening of Fear & Loathing, the inaugural exhibit in the Art Photo Index (API) online exhibition series curated by well-known professionals from within the art photography community and drawn from API's extraordinary cache of images.

Created by Katherine Ware, Curator of Photography at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, Fear & Loathing includes 117 works by 94 photographers from 14 countries. Ware chose this varied range of images by extensively exploring API and selecting work directly from the site, as well as from submissions from the artists. The exhibition ranges from the horrific to the humorous, highlighting commonplace fears as well as worrisome world issues. "Combing through API for images is addictive and I found some startling images that I didn't know about," Ware said. "I tried to assemble a variety of pictures from the site into a fresh and unexpected context. I hope the selection and layout will offer an intriguing journey for viewers."

 Book of the Week: A Pick by Elizabeth Avedon




Book of the Week: A Pick by Shane Lavalette
Disko by Andrew Miksys


"Photographer Andrew Miksys explores a unique nightclub culture in his new book DISKO, a culmination of ten years photographing Soviet-era village discos in Lithuania. As the youth of these towns move to cities or leave for Western Europe and America, these unique clubs are slowly fading. Many of the discos are barely attended, with just a few teenagers getting drunk late into the night, seeking something, or someone, to hold on to in a place with little opportunity. The greasy, colorful corners, bloodstains, and dark smoky slow dances are made beautiful through Miksys lens, yet together the photographs in DISKO reveal a feeling of hopelessness, and the palpable uncertainty in the eyes of a new generation." — Shane Lavalette

 photo-eye Book Reviews


Simon Roberts: Pierdom

"Born of the Victorian invention of a holiday by the sea, the British pleasure pier has been for a century and a half both conveyance and destination, fixed landmark and mutable emblem. They sprang up from the exuberance of their day, through cast iron and steam trains — a promenade's stretch with bandstands and fun fairs. Their story follows the popular whim, as well as the effects of time and the elements. Simon Roberts has systematically photographed those fifty-eight pleasure piers that still stand today, after their heyday has waned, interested in what part they play in contemporary English leisure." — from Karen Jenkins' review of Pierdom by Simon Roberts
