photo-eye Gallery is proud to announce Tempest an exhibition of recent black-and-white storm photographs from represented artist Mitch Dobrowner – including the debut of several NEW images in the acclaimed series. For nearly a decade, Mitch Dobrowner has ventured out with professional storm chasers into the American heartland photographing the energy of a wondrous and sometimes perilous planet. Storms themselves are inherently paradoxical, representing both significant disruption and necessary recharge to the environment in a single event, and Dobrowner’s images often feel sublime as we witness torrential rain dropped by a 50,000ft helix, mile-high tornados, and bolts of lightning from the comfort of the gallery floor. These dualities are central to the series.

While photographing, Dobrowner keeps the words of Edward Abbey as a kind of mantra: “Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today.” A modern master printer, Dobrowner’s work is well seated as a contemporary member in a long and honored line of American landscape photographers.

Molly McCall: Home Movies

photo-eye Gallery is excited to introduce Molly McCall’s Home Movies to the Photographer’s Showcase. In Home Movies McCall employs the cinematic qualities of found vintage photographs to construct narratives exploring the passage of time, transition, transformation, and loss. Each scene is directed by McCall as she hand-paints color swatches and pattern across the enlarged vintage images essentially reframing them to reveal gestures of unfinished stories and the murky sense of memory.

Karl Blossfeldt Karl Blossfeldt
The Architecture of Plants
July 31st - September 30th, 2017

photo-eye Bookstore Project Space is pleased to feature Karl Blossfeldt: The Architecture of Plants, an exhibition featuring twenty exquisite black-and-white photogravure plates from Blossfeldt’s seminal monographs Urformen der Kunst and Wundergarten der Natur. Karl Blossfeldt insisted that ’the plant must be valued as a totally artistic and architectural structure,’ and his iconic monographs are a testament to that belief. A pioneer in the field of macro-photography, Blossfeldt often constructed his own cameras allowing him to magnify his subject 30x to craft compositions infused with abstract shape, transforming ordinary buds, pods, and twigs into exotic specimens with rhythmic form.

Jennifer Greenburg: Revising History

photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to announce Jennifer Greenburg, our latest addition to the Photographer's Showcase. Greenburg challenges social norms and the nature of vernacular photographs in her current series Revising History. Seamlessly interjecting herself in mid century images from the 1940's – 60's, Greenburg creates convincing counterfeit moments liberating the pictures from reality and reminding us of photography's fragile relationship with the truth. Revising History's imagery is exceptionally sharp with a sly sense of humor, while also touching on issues in today's culture and political climate in America.
