Brad Wilson: Avian

photo-eye Bookstore + Project Space is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Brad Wilson entitled Avian: Selected Works from the Affinity series. Avian includes photographs of birds where Wilson illuminates subtle idiosyncrasies in exquisite detail against a black studio backdrop. Employing a refined technique typically reserved for human sitters, Wilson’s subjects dramatically confront the camera. The exhibition celebrates the release of Brad Wilson’s new monograph, Wild Life, published by Prestel.

Michael Jackson: A Child's Landscape

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce A Child’s Landscape by Michael Jackson, new to the Photographer’s Showcase. Jackson’s atmospheric black & white images explore an unknown environment as a child would – through a lens of adventure, drama, and imagination. By way of the studio, a water tank, and a great deal of ingenuity, Jackson transforms a simple rock collection into sublime and foreboding seascapes reminiscent of a forgotten past. Each archival pigment print is made on delicate rice paper, and is available in small editions.

Amy Friend: Dare alla Luce

"My previous work presents a particular interest in the 'family album' and this continual interest led to my focus on what I like to call the 'lost images' — photographs that are without a home… I wanted to make these photographs precious again, to somehow validate that loss. Initially, I began by embroidering on the photographs. I aimed to transform them into a new object. While sewing I would hold the photograph to the light in order to determine the placement of the pinholes. I recognized that the pinholes themselves were far more interesting to me and decided to work toward exploring that avenue in the work."—Amy Friend

Antone Dolezal & Lara Shipley: Devil's Promenade

"We started talking about how we were both from the Ozarks and wanted to do a project on this place. So we decided to collaborate. We spent about six months just researching the Ozarks before we came across the story of the Spook Light… A big part of our process is just wandering around and talking to people in a really loose way. That part of our practice is rooted in the documentary tradition of exploring a place. But we were also interested in aspects of the Ozarks that are more magical — the larger than life stories. We began recreating and elaborating on some of the stories we had been told."—Antone Dolezal & Lara Shipley

Michael Lange: FLUSS

"After having worked for two and a half years in the German woods and mountains, I was fascinated by the power of the river and how the water had formed the landscape. The raw and merciless power of the overflowing river revealed by the debris left on the banks made a strong impression on me. Time seemed to have had no meaning — it must have looked the same way five hundred years ago. Nature was so dense, that even then on a December day with the leafless trees and bushes one couldn't see very far. The stillness was inescapable. It felt like a huge inviting nest."—Michael Lange

"In the transition from dark to dawn, nature is like a hidden beauty wrapped in a gloomy silken paper. It is light years away from a forest in sunlight. A similar effect happens in twilight, on a dark rainy day, with mist or fog. The landscape gets transformed in a magical way one often can't predict. A shallow situation might change drastically into a dramatic one and reveal a depth and fullness one could not imagine."—Michael Lange

Ken Rosenthal: That Was The River, This Is The Sea

"The darkroom is still a place of magic for me. I love everything about it: the dark amber light, the sound of water running, watching the image emerge in the developer, and how time evaporates. I even love the smells of the darkroom. A well-crafted silver print has such a special quality to it. They can be absolutely luminous and have a near three-dimensional quality. I completely subscribe to Ansel's notion of likening the negative to a musical composition, and the print to the performance... Working on the prints for That Was The River, This Is The Sea was such a joy. I'd forgotten how lovely it is to work in a much more straight-forward manner in the darkroom. "—Ken Rosenthal

Max Kellenberger: Blues

"I had a very early fascination with everything that emitted, reflected or captured light — maybe because I was so scared of the dark. I remember trying to fall asleep at night being scared. Lying in bed I noticed a pattern being projected onto the ceiling — it was created by the light of the street lantern shining through the shutters and it sort of looked like a set of wrenches neatly laid out next to one another. Staring at it relaxed and comforted me and I could close my eyes. I believe there is something soothing about a repetitive pattern and repetition in general, maybe because repetition is a core principle of life, such as the heart beat and the breath."—Max Kellenberger

Conventional Entropy

Opening and Artist Reception, Friday, February 7th, 5–7pm

Exhibition continues through April 5th, 2014.

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Denver-based photographer Kevin O'Connell from his series Conventional Entropy. O'Connell's photographs depict pipelines, pumps, tanks and towers used to extract energy from the natural landscape. However, the machines succumb to the natural world and the massive structures stand as monuments to entropy itself. Riddled with paradox, O'Connell's subtle and exquisite color photographs allow the viewer to consider the possibility of a landscape transformed by machinery in a constant state of decay.
