photo-eye Bookstore’s Project Space is excited to announce William Coupon: Portraits, a solo exhibition featuring images of notable cultural icons and ethnographic studies dating back to the 1970s by celebrated Santa Fe-based photographer William Coupon. The exhibition corresponds with Coupon’s long-awaited monograph of the same title published earlier this year by Damiani.

For more than 40 years William Coupon has photographed an astonishing array of esteemed artists, politicians, athletes, and intellectuals, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Carter, and Mohammed Ali among many others. Inspired by classic portrait painters such as Rembrandt and Holbein, Coupon’s signature style places his subject against a hand-painted backdrop lit by a single oblique light source. This rich chiaroscuro lends Coupon’s portraits a dynamic weight while focusing our attention on his sitters’ expressions and engagement with the camera. The results are captivating. As an exhibition, William Coupon: Portraits acts as a kind of time capsule examining the personalities who have helped shape the last half-century.

photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to announce Ancient Kingdoms, a solo exhibition of black-and-white platinum prints by renowned photographer Beth Moon spanning two decades of work and images from four discrete projects.

While the subject matter varies widely from tree portraits to a spiritual journey, the overarching themes of Moon’s work including humanity’s relationship with nature, a fascination with time, resilience, and survival serve to unify the exhibition. In essence, Moon’s images utilize the history of the plant and animal kingdoms to ask beautiful questions about our relativity to nature while challenging us to respect and acknowledge our place within the greater lifecycle – one which both precedes us and will outlast our time on earth. Subtle but triumphant, Moon’s prints often evoke a primal ache, a sense of wistful wonder, and an urge to connect with the wild.
