Doug Hall featured in Photograph Magazine

Photograph Magazine has published a review of Doug Hall's current exhibition at the gallery Bodies in Space:

"Across the images in Bodies in Space, people look but don't see, they're present but they're not fully there, and they inhabit a reality that seems not quite real. With a flat background and an artificially lit foreground, portraits of a "weekend cowgirl" in Stagecoach, Nevada, and a man in traditional garb at Monument Valley look like the vintage snapshots of a novelty photo studio. Places, through Hall's lens, have a similarly disorienting artificiality: in Gene Autry Rock, the scene has the appearance of a painted backdrop at a museum or zoo."

Karine Laval featured in Harper's Magazine

Harper's Magazine has published an article titled Karine Laval’s Eclipses, which features new work by Laval as well as an in-depth interview:

"Over the past few years, I have been increasingly interested in the process of image making — as opposed to image taking — and its relationship to surface, texture, and materiality. At the moment, I find it a more exciting and rewarding approach than “straight” or documentary photography. It allows me to experiment freely and to welcome mistakes outside of the medium’s regular conventions. It is also a more creative and instinctive process, closer to painting or collage, and it has taken me in unexpected directions."

Doug Hall featured in group exhibition at Borusan Contemporary

Doug Hall is one of five artists whose works are on display in West Coast Visions: Artists from the SFMOMA Media Arts Collection, which opens today at Borusan Contemporary gallery in the Perili Kösk in Baltalimani:

“There is such a wonderful similarity,” says video artist Doug Hall, whose video of maritime activities on San Francisco Bay closely resembles the same daily panorama on the Bosporus and Sea of Marmara. “American explorer John Charles Fremont wrote about San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge as being named after Istanbul's Golden Horn,” he continues. Hall's 23-minute, two-channel projection, “Chrysopylae,” zooms in on cargo ships as they pass through the port of San Francisco, much like the continuous parade on Istanbul's waterways."

Richard Renaldi featured in Wired Magazine

Wired Magazine has published a feature on Richard Renaldi's Touching Strangers series:

"The subjects’ spontaneous poses and reactions range from intimate to awkward, tender to taciturn, and they often betray the complexity and range of emotions human touch often elicits. A big part of the process was directing his subjects to interact in a way that looked interesting but also challenged them. Some were reluctant, even opposed, to participate. Some people didn’t have time; others backed out at the last moment, overwhelmed with discomfort or impatience."

The New York Times review of Touching Strangers

Richard Renaldi's Touching Strangers was reviewed this week in The New York Times:

"What makes Renaldi’s photographs thrilling is that, even knowing his strategy, the viewer can’t help fabricating a story about the subjects’ relationship. We weave narratives around them — who they are, the unlikely tenderness that might exist between strangers. These counterfactuals force us to confront the limits of what we know, from our own experiences, to make up common social interactions. Relationships that take place in public tend to form along class, gender, racial and generational lines, and the mind quickly categorizes these interactions. "

This Grand Show reviewed in Photograph Magazine

Photograph Magazine has published a review of Richard Renaldi's current exhibition This Grand Show, as well as the Touching Strangers exhibition at The Aperture Foundation:

"While Touching Strangers is a largely urban project, Renaldi’s work at Bonni Benbrubi Gallery, This Grand Show, through June 7, is an exploration of the American landscape inspired by 19th-century naturalist and Sierra Club founder John Muir. These are not the majestic scenes of Timothy O’Sullivan, though, but vistas on the verge of disappearing or objects cast aside"

Richard Renaldi featured in The New Yorker's Photo Booth

The New Yorker's Photo Booth blog has published a feature on Richard Renaldi's early morning series titled Manhattan Sunday:

“Sunday morning is a magical and inspiring time,” he said. “It’s a break in the chaotic swirl. People are quiet, reflective, coming down, and peacefully tired. They are in the same space as the city.” Renaldi began taking pictures of people as they left after-hours clubs—Pacha, District 36, Roseland—and the all-night karaoke bars on Thirty-second Street. “I wanted this to be a celebration of the characters I’ve seen, who get dressed up and put their freak on to go out on a Saturday night. So often this is hidden in the dark,”

Jed Devine in the news:

Jed Devine's current exhibition at the gallery is the subject of an article in HYPERALLERGIC.COM titled Collaging Art History in the Kitchen:

"There’s continuity between Devine’s old and new images: his tight composition, arranging hand, and idiosyncratic insistence that art belongs in the kitchen all persist. But these days, you can’t even make out the table; it’s too cluttered with open books, discarded napkins, wrinkled tablecloths. As in the earlier work, his vantage point is always from above, surveying his temporary assemblages. But whereas before, curves dominated (platinum-palladium’s sensitivity so exquisitely captured the fullness of fruit, the closed circuit of bowls and plates), Devine’s new terrain is a grid of pixels, and he splinters it with angles, making a mess."

Devine's show is also featured in The New Yorker this month. See the whole post HERE.

Paolo Pellegrin featured in The New Yorker's Photo Booth

The New Yorker's online blog Photobooth has included an image by Paolo Pellegrin for their recent installment called "Wet Process"

"Today is the twenty-first-annual World Water Day, which was established, by the United Nations, to draw attention to the management and the use of fresh water. The occasion got me looking for photographers who take water as their central theme. Climate change, which has produced extremes of abundance and scarcity around the world, was a common subject, especially for documentary projects. But I was also drawn to works that highlight the beauty of water, which, as Roni Horn notes, “is full of paradox. It is ubiquitous, and yet so unfamiliar.”

Richard Renaldi featured in the Guardian

The has published a selection of Richard Renaldi's Touchging Strangers series in an article titled "Brief Encounter: Touching Strangers - In Pictures":

"When photographer Richard Renaldi started putting strangers together to make intimate portraits, he had a wish list. “I had a list of what I wanted to catalogue,” he says on the phone from New York, “in particular, certain types with different backgrounds and races. I remember I wanted a Muslim woman in a veil. And a cop. I knew I wanted a cop.”"

Matthew Albanese featured in AdWeek magazine

AdWeek Magazine has published an article on the world's largest model railroad, and Sony's testing of miniature cameras by Matthew Albanese:

"...the four-minute documentary, created with Wieden + Kennedy, makes the whole thing feel pretty forced and awkward. "For this project I chose a camera that will get me into tight spaces and gives me unique vantage points," says Albanese. That may be the selling point, but the footage and the photographs make the point well enough without the contrived sales pitch. A little less throat-clearing and philosophizing might serve the spot well, too—but at the end, Zaccagnino's extra talent makes for a perfectly oddball kicker."

"Christopher Payne specializes in the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscapes. Trained as an architect, Payne has captured American cornerstones such as insane asylums, and textile factories. Payne’s recent work, including a series in progress on the American textile industry, has veered away from the documentation of the obsolete towards a celebration of craftsmanship and small-scale manufacturing."

Massimo Vitali review in The New Yorker

The New Yorker has reviewed Massimo Vitali's current show at the gallery: Between Normalities:

"The Italian photographer’s very big color pictures of beaches in Brazil, Sardinia, Crete, and Lampedusa are especially seductive on a cold winter day. Vitali, who shoots from a platform high above the landscape, captures broad and marvellously detailed vistas dotted with people in bathing suits."

Essay by Jehad Nga featured in Time: Lightbox

Time: Lightbox has published an essay by Jehad Nga on his recent experiences with Malick Sidibe:

"Housed in a busy suburb of Bamako, Mali’s capital, Malick’s tiny studio has a readily detectable pulse — a touch shallower than I imagine it once was, but still present. The studio itself has become as much a subject in his photos as the countless men, women and children who have set foot inside the place to have their portraits made, or simply to visit with the local legend. The portraits, meanwhile, are remarkable, each one of the thousands of pictures somehow teasing out a central, telling element of the individual’s character. These portraits, one realizes, are evidence of a rare and intimate exchange, an empathy between sitter and portraitist."

Gillian Laub Featured in Tablet magazine

Tablet magazine has published an article on Gillian Laub's New York Times shoot with Ariel Sharon:

"It turned out it was me—or rather, my equipment—that prompted the bomb scare. After blowing way too many fuses, I never like to be dependent on anybody’s electricity, so I only use portable lights, and each battery weighs about ten pounds and looks like a lead brick. And when they ran a background check on me, they saw I’d been in Ramallah and Nablus two months before. I was interrogated for an hour."

Matthew Pillsbury interviewed by The World Photography Organisation

"What I love about photography is that people find a way to make unbelievable images of things I would otherwise have no interest in and that would never grab my attention. A great picture is the coming together of an idea and the right tools to express it."

Chris Payne featured in The New York Times Magazine

Chris Payne's photographs of textile mills have been published in The New York Times Magazine this week alongside an essay titled Fruits of the Loom:

"For a time it must have seemed that every waterfall in New England was becoming the center of a new town, and Philadelphia, with its Schuylkill River, became “the workshop of the world” for at least 90 years, until steam power replaced water power, and the textile industry drifted South, where labor was cheaper. Today, of course, most textile production takes place abroad. In Guangzhou, China, they have had whole streets devoted to selling yarn. A century ago, there were more than 800 businesses related to textile manufacturing in Philadelphia alone; today there are around a hundred."

Laura McPhee- River of No Return listed as one of the Top Ten Contemporary Art Exhibits in 2013

The Huffington Post included Laura McPhee's exhibition: River of No Return at the Kemper Contemporary Museum of ART in Kansas City, MO this year as one of the top ten contemporary art exhibits of 2013:

"The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art again showed its extraordinarily good judgment in featuring the work of Laura McPhee. She is a final holdout in the line of great large format photographers using the 8 by 10 camera and pulling prints with traditional chromogenic chemistry. River of No Return featured twenty-three beautiful mural sized (6 by 8 feet) prints that were photographed over several years in the ranch land and wilderness of central Idaho."

Richard Kern recently interviewed Massimo Vitali for an article in Vice Magazine:

"They are certainly landscapes, they are certainly portraits and they are historical documents because they portray the way we live. (In my photos) I’m trying to get clues of our existence. The idea is that there’s a lot of stuff to look at, a lot of details so that the people who are looking at the photographs have the possibility to make up their own stories. You must collaborate when looking at my pictures—you must put yourself into the picture and try to invent your own stories."

Matthew Pillsbury's new monograph City Stages featured in The Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal has published a review of Matthew Pillsbury's new book City Stages:

"Where Matthew Pillsbury took the pictures in "City Stages" (Aperture, 128 pages, $65) is usually pretty obvious—New York, Paris, London, Venice. It is reading the people that is problematic. Mr. Pillsbury shoots on black and white film in an 8-by-10-inch view camera using long exposures, some an hour or more, which provide sharp details even in dark shadows. But the figures in his frame at the beginning of the exposure leave or move about, and so appear only as transparent apparitions."

"Including the work of some 255 photographers from around the globe who have covered conflicts over the last 166 years, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY examines the interrelationship between war and photography, reveals the evolution of the medium by which war is recorded and remembered, and explores the range of experience of armed conflict: recruitment, training, embarkation, daily routine, battle, death and destruction, homecoming, and remembrance. In addition to depicting the phases of war, WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY includes portraits of servicemen, military and political leaders, and civilians and refugees."

“After I got my pilot’s license when I was 17 years old in LA, I would fly around the basin shooting 8-mm movies from the air,” Milstein tells PDN via e-mail. “I was always fascinated by the way things looked from above.” For his most recent project Milsten began experimenting by using a helicopter and a friend’s plane, photographing local airports like John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport in New York City, and Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, from above."

Lauren Semivan interview at FotoFilmic

FotoFilmic has recently published an interview with Lauren Semivan:

"Many people consider photographing on film at this moment, and specifically in black-and-white, to be deliberate- if not contrary, way to make images. In context of so many available digital technologies large format seems to be a nearly extinct practice and those who hold on to film are doing so maybe less out of sentimentality or nostalgia than for specific conceptual reasons. I think many people look at black and white and see only the process or the container rather than the whole experience of the image itself. Maybe the rise in popularity of big color prints shown and collected in the beginning of the 2000s encouraged a kind of pendulum swing. Photographing in black-and-white now can almost be seen as a radical gesture."

Or Not Magazine has published an interview with lauren Semivan titled Cosmologies of the inner world:

"Lauren Semivan’s work, that can be considered part of the so-called staged photography, surpasses this narrow classification putting itself on a different expressive level that rather makes it closer to a photography of great visual suggestion, wavering between the pure abstraction (that is combination of graphical signs tangled as pure emotional space) and self-portrait, still life (with points of light that attract the glance) and performance, whose absolute protagonist is, obviously, the artist herself."

Life Magazine features a spotlight on Bill Ray

Life Magazine has recently published a feature on Bill Ray titled Bill Ray's Classic Celebrity Portraits:

"Even a partial roll call of the men and women Bill Ray photographed for LIFE reads like a Who’s Who of Sixties pop culture: Marilyn Monroe, Sinatra, the Beatles, Natalie Wood, Liz Taylor, Elvis, Steve McQueen, Jackie Kennedy and on and on and on. But even more remarkable than the number of genuine legends Ray covered is that he managed to capture something utterly distinctive about each and every one."

Jacqueline Hassink featured in The Slate

Jacqueline Hassink's series The Table of Power 2 is the subject of a feature in The Slate online magazine called An International Tour of the World’s Most Powerful Boardrooms.:

"The idea of documenting the tables is twofold for Hassink. While studying sculpture in Norway in the early ’90s, she photographed tables around Oslo in an attempt to “map” a geographical area by focusing on one object. She chose tables because she felt they symbolize one way in which we organize our lives. They also shed light about hierarchy within families and corporations, such as in where parents or the CEO of a company elect to sit—the mother closer to the kitchen, the CEO in the most secure part of the room."

Matthew Pillsbury in conversation with Michel Lussault

Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 pm The Aperture Foundation will present Matthew Pillsbury in conversation with French geographer Michel Lussault at The Aperture Gallery and bookstore in New York:

"Working primarily in New York, Pillsbury captures human activity in urban environments, from isolated moments—tuned into the omnipresent screens of our tablets, laptops, televisions, and phones—to crowded spectacles at museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests. This decade-long project has culminated in Pillsbury’s first monograph, City Stages, published by Aperture in September 2013. A geographer specializing in urban studies, Lussault depicts the impact of globalization on space, and the way we experience and organize societies today. These two flâneurs observe and discuss the relationships of individuals to their daily environments and the urban landscape."

Lauren Semivan interview in Daily Metal

Online magazine, Daily Metal has published an interview with Lauren Semivan:

"I studied violin beginning at a young age, and was always looking for a way to expand on that language. I loved playing, but learning violin repertoire felt a little too formulaic and strict. I had always had a 35mm camera and would spend hours in any darkroom I could find. When I entered college I started thinking about photography in a more conceptual way and it became the only thing that I wanted to do. I learned about 19th century printing techniques and the history of photography, but also about how to think for myself as an artist and to take definitions or categories and trends lightly. A lot about my education was very ad-lib or improvised and I think that is really valuable. I attribute some aspects of my style of photographing to my experiences studying music."

"The iconic and glorious Golden Gate Bridge, recognized around the world, is nearly synonymous with the Bay Area. This summer, SJMA invites visitors to experience the bridge in a completely new way through the art of Doug Hall. In Timelapse, the bridge is more than a landmark: it is an elegant engineering feat, a symbol of global maritime commerce, a portal to the Pacific Rim, and a tourist destination of the West. This exhibition marks the debut of the Museum’s recent major acquisition, purchased with funds contributed by the Lipman Family Foundation and the Acquisitions Committee."

The installation will be on display through October 20, 2013

Jacqueline Hassink featured in Wallpaper Magazine

Wallpaper Magazine recently published an article titled Photographer Jacqueline Hassink offers a unique look at Kyoto's temples and gardens:

"The series was inspired by Hassink's first visit to Kyoto, where she was drawn to the 'micro-systems' that occur when gardens are viewed through the adjacent architecture, as if in a frame. (She refers to it as an 'abstract painting of nature'.) Her photographs emphasise the unclear border between private and public spaces - though they are careful to give visual balance to both the woven tatami mats and lush foliage. Of her approach, the artist says: 'The temple grounds became the working material with which I created sculptural photographic compositions."

"The directorial debut by photographer Gillian Laub is based on her study of the prom dances at the local High School. Though the south-central Georgia school was integrated in 1971, the proms remained separated along racial lines for years afterwards. Now in post-production, the film tracks the divide that develops in the community as an older white man is put on trial for killing a younger African-American male. This is all going on against the backdrop of the recently integrated proms and a campaign to election the area’s first black Sheriff."

Gillian Laub featured in Time LightBox

Gillian Laub's recent mini-documentary A Perfect Daughter: Gender Reassignment by Gillian Laub is currently featured in Time LightBox:

“It’s always an honor when someone is open and wants to share their life in such an intimate way under the gaze of a camera,” Laub tells TIME, “so the minute the editor told me about Nikki, I said of course I would love to do it.”

To gain their trust and to make them feel comfortable, Laub spent the first day just talking with the family without her cameras.

“Nikki told me she spent the first ten years of her life feeling like she was in the wrong body, almost betrayed by it,” she says. “After the transition, she finally felt happy, safe and proud in her body. I wanted to convey the new feeling of freedom and liberation.”

Matthew Pillsbury featured in The New York Times

This week's New York Times includes an article called The Blur of Life about Matthew Pillsbury's work and new monograph published by Aperture:

"The city that emerges from Matthew Pillsbury’s photographs of New York — collected in a new book, “City Stages,” to be published by Aperture in October — is a ghost town: not an empty ghost town of deserted streets, but a much more literal phantom world in which human figures are captured, in almost spectral fashion, walking through public spaces, their bodies blurred by long exposures. “A lot of photography is about asserting a presence,” said Mr. Pillsbury, 39, who was raised in Paris but moved to New York City in the early 1990s. “These photographs are more about the evanescence of our lives and show human beings as fleeting essences that are moving through a landscape.”

Lauren Semivan's upcoming exhibition featured in The Wall Street International Magazine

Lauren Semivan's upcoming exhibition Observatory is featured in this week's Wall Street International Magazine:

"Semivan’s photographs are the personal expression of a voice seemingly both wise and innocent. Calling to mind classic themes of memory and perception, the images are inviting, lush, and theatrical. Objects as diverse as books, furniture, boats, antique photographs, vegetation, and bones reoccur, as if clues to a larger story. The backdrops of Semivan’s images are abstract and gestural-- more contemporary than the objects they create a stage to and display a more playful voice to the traditional themes. The images express both a knowledge and wonder, past and possibility."

Susannah Ray featured on Voice of America

Susannah Ray is featured in a story and short video documentary called Documenting the Rockaways in Photographs, Before and After Sandy on The Voice of America website:

"Some of Ray’s most striking photographs are of that community, including many who surf through the winter. The project, titled Right Coast, after surfers’ nickname for the East Coast, has dramatic images of wet-suited men and women hauling their boards under gray skies, through snow and even blizzards. Ray says that’s because most of the year, the waves in the Rockaways are small."

Susannah Ray's current Exhibition in The New Yorker

Susannah Ray's current exhibition at the gallery: What are the Wild Waves Saying is featured in this week's New Yorker:

"The photographer, who lives in the Rockways, took these big color pictures in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Destruction is the focus, but resilience is the theme. Scenes of spectacular ruins—a red Mini Cooper crushed beneath the uprooted boardwalk, a house that’s still standing with most of its ground floor swept away—flirt with disaster porn. But they’re balanced by more contemplative images, including interiors, still-lifes, and a group of portraits accompanied by Jen Poyant’s audio collage of Rockaway residents’ voices."

Jehad Nga feature in The Aesthete

Online blog The Aesthete has posted a feature on Jehad Nga called "Internal Conflict":

"Nga’s refusal to acknowledge even the slightest pleasure in the aesthetic quality of his conflict photography or the fact that the world’s preeminent publications are consistently throwing their most prestigious assignments his way is due in part to his natural creative temperament, which is largely defined by a compulsion for brutal self evaluation. (“Every year I have a crisis—I just want to sell all my equipment, reformat all of my hard drives and start at zero,” he admits.) At the same, his current disavowal of traditional photography does not appear at all to be temporary."

The Wall Street Journal International has published a feature on Susannah Ray and her new exhibition at the gallery What are the Wild Waves Saying:

"People told tales of survival, digging out, rebuilding, and hoping for things to get back to normal. Each person's story reflects a long history of settlement along the peninsula, from the close-knit Breezy Point community on the west end all the way to Far Rockaway on the east. The floodwaters united the disparate populations of the peninsula through shared trauma and struggle, yet as they receded and the clean-up dragged on, longstanding differences resurfaced."

"Ms. McPhee admitted, "Story is first and foremost in my work." And that impulse, it seems, is a family trait. Her father, John McPhee, is a Pulitzer Prize winner and author of thirty-three books. His The Survival of The Bark Canoe is one of the best works in 20th century American literature. Two of Laura McPhee's sisters are novelists as well."

Matthew Pillsbury featured in The New York Times Magazine

The New York Times Magazine has featured images by Matthew Pillsbury for their story Druids Take Manhattan, on the most recent "Manhattanhenge":

"It happens twice a year: before the sun sets, it hits a point just above the horizon for a few moments where its rays are in perfect alignment with the Manhattan grid and light up the buildings on both the north and south sides of the cross streets. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, says the phenomenon he calls “Manhattanhenge” — after Britain’s Stonehenge, where the sun aligns with the monoliths on the summer solstice — didn’t begin to catch on as a public viewing event until after 2002, when he published a photo taken on 34th Street. He says he is charmed by how thoroughly the city has embraced the phenomenon. “I’ll take any excuse to get people to look at the sky,” he says. “Especially New Yorkers.”

Les Rencontres d'Arles online video with Simon Norfolk

Les Rencontres d'Arles has produced an online video with Simon Norfolk discussing his recent Prix Pictet commission.The Prix Pictet, founded in 2008 by the leading Swiss private bank, Pictet & Cie, is the world’s most prestigious prize in photography and sustainability. Its mission is to reveal outstanding photography applied to confront the most pressing social and environmental challenges of today. For each new cycle, the Prix Pictet adopts a different theme. This year Pictet & Cie chose to give the commission to photographer Simon Norfolk. The first public presentation of the photographs resulting from his fieldtrips to Afghanistan will be the grand finale of a special screening at the Théâtre Antique. The theme, finalists’ exhibition sites and the jury for the fifth Prix Pictet will also be announced during the evening. Simon Norfolk’s photographs for the Prix Pictet Commission will be exhibited at Somerset House in London in October 2013.

Jehad Nga write up in this week's New Yorker

This week's New Yorker features a short write up on Jehad Nga's current exhibition at the gallery:

"The American photojournalist has done his most memorable work in Africa, where he spent part of his childhood. But his latest pictures, which were taken in Mali, aren’t news-related—instead, Nga is observing, more absorbed by atmosphere than by incident. The most interesting pictures hint at a narrative that remains tantalizingly open-ended: sandals and a transistor radio have been left by a woven rug in the sun; a dusty jeep and scattered military gear appear freshly abandoned; a spindly table holds a wooden box whose burned interior suggests a portal no one should enter. Through July 14."

See the listing HERE. And don't for get to come see the work, up until July 12th.

Simon Norfolk featured in The Financial Times

FT Magazine has run a feature story on Simon Norfolk called Prix Pictet: Simon Norfolk in Afghanistan

"In February, after winning the prestigious Prix Pictet Commission, the British photographer Simon Norfolk went to Bamyan Province in Afghanistan’s Central Highlands, where small farming communities battle against the harsh climate to eke out a living. His plan was to follow the cycle of the seasons for a year, from a frozen early spring through to the snows of winter, documenting the stages of flooding, irrigation, planting and harvest. These are his first cycles, taken from the same vantage points roughly six weeks apart."

David Leventi article in The Slate

The Slate's photography blog has a beautiful feature on David Leventi's work called "The Stunning Grandeur of the World’s Great Opera Houses"

“In a way, taking a photograph with an 8x10 camera is like performance art, there’s an act to it, so this idea of light and sound being very similar the way they interact … the idea of standing on center stage and being in all these opera houses where he could have performed if there wasn’t the war and all these other circumstances, communism, etc. … I guess you can say I’m living out our dreams.”

Laura McPhee featured on Kansas City Public Radio

KCUR, Kansas City public radio has run a feature on Laura McPhee and her Exhibition River of No Return at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, called "Photographing The Grandeur Of The West":

"In a sense, McPhee says, it’s become her life’s work to "look at and understand the language of a place." She's photographed an urban park in New York and architecture in Calcutta, India. For the project in Idaho, a starting point was connecting to the history of her grandmother, a schoolteacher who traveled all over the West teaching miners’ children.

"Imagining her life and what that looked like, and trying to understand that in terms of 21st century reality fascinated me," says McPhee. "The past and the present being at work at the same time."

Eric Cahan featured in Wired magazine

Wired online has published a short feature on Eric Cahan called Polychromatic Filters Warp Skies and, Hopefully, Send You Back in Time:

“The way you remember [sunsets or sunrises] might not be as they actually were. They often become distorted in an ethereal way,” he says. “Put another way, I’m not a photojournalist trying to capture the sunset exactly as it was.”

Cahan says his work is influenced by the artist James Turrell, who some credit as the first person to isolate light as it’s own independent artwork. He is also famous for saying that light can become “a revelation in itself.”

Matthew Pillsbury Monograph to be published by Aperture

The Aperture foundation will be publishing Matthew Pillsbury's first monograph. The book titled City Stages will be published soon:

"Over the past decade, Pillsbury has built several extensive bodies of work—Screen Lives, Hours, and City Stages—that deal with different facets of contemporary metropolitan life and the passage of time. Working with black-and-white 8-by-10 film and long exposures, Pillsbury captures a range of psychologically charged experiences in the urban environment, from isolation—tuned into the omnipresent screens of our tablets, laptops, televisions, and phones—to crowded museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests."

Karine Laval featured in WAG Magazine

The May issue of WAG Magazine has an article on Karine Laval and the new exhibition here at the gallery:

"I see a parallel between the surface of the water and the surface of the computer screen and the way they contain light and movement. It therefore feels natural to me to use the computer screen in a similar manner I have used the surface of the water – as a distorting lens to generate images of transformed reality. Also, both water and the screen have a shimmering and seductive quality one can be drawn to. Most of these new works are abstract, but somehow they are still connected to the body and the notion of performance and materiality."

"Twentieth-century and contemporary photography stalwart Bonni Benrubi Gallery does not disappoint with a striking, if too small, selection of French photographer Stephane Couturier's work. Even though Brasilia, Monument no. 1 (2007-08), from his Melting Point series, is not Couturier's strongest work, it nonetheless reflects his sharp sense of design, composition and color, and his lyrical, painterly ability to represent transformation."

Laura McPhee's current exhibition, Desert Chronicle is the subject of a feature in Le Journal de la Photographie this week:

"This series of photographs reveals the sheer power of the ecosystem, with giant lines that the camera is unable to capture in their entirety. At first glance into the impressive darkness, the eye perceives a more fragile reality: the trees are stripped of their needles, knocked down and torn apart by the wind. We find this same ambiguity in a photograph of charred tree trunks, always placed firmly in a setting where the black stands out against the blurry plantlife."

The Bonni Benrubi gallery is pleased to announce representation of Stephane Couturier

The gallery is excited to be representing the work of Stephane Couturier. In 1994, Stéphane Couturier showed the first works in a series called Urban Archaeology, viewing the city as a living organism. From 1999 onwards, Stéphane Couturier began to focus on mushrooming housing developments with his Monuments series. In 2002, the uniformity and repetitiveness of these landscapes around the world drove him to begin working on the series Landscaping, with polyptychs. With a new body of work called Melting Point, Couturier changed his visual approach. The technical and visual protocols put into play as a matter of fact obey a visual and deliberate conceptual orientation—to divert the documentary aspect of photography, to shift and transcend its narrative dimension, to question its reputation as beholder of truth.

In the following pages, Vitali turns his camera on Brazil, moving, over the course of three weeks, from the urban density of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to the empty sands of Brazil’s northeast.:

PAOLO PELLEGRIN receives a 2013 World Press Photo Award

Paolo Pellegrin has recieved the World Press Photo Award this year in General News, 2nd prize stories, for his series The Crescent:

"The area of Rochester, New York, USA, where these pictures were taken is part of the so-called 'Crescent', a moon-shaped area that runs across several city neighborhoods. Crime rates here are significantly higher than the rest of Rochester. The Crescent is home to 27 percent of the city's residents and 80 percent of the city's homicides. The causes of the burst of violence include the lagging upstate economy, a steady migration of residents to the suburbs, and a growing number of abandoned houses prone to become centers of drug sales and use. Rochester also has a school system that performs poorly. People inside the Crescent experience those problems in greater concentration."

Louis Stettner's current exhibition, The Masterpieces is featured in an artice in The Wall Street Journal this week:

"Place Saint-Augustin, l’inlassible pieton de Paris” (1993) demon- strates his ability to create signifi- cant images from casual elements; the upside-down reflection of a bare tree and the facade of a beaux-arts building in a puddle on the sidewalk is at the bottom of the picture, and the legs of a man taking a rapid stride are on top. The two parts are arranged on a diagonal and are somehow very satisfying."

Jehad Nga's Green Book series featured in le journal de la photographie

Le Journal de la Photographie is featuring an article on Jehad Nga's new series The Green Book:

"In this series, Jehad Nga technically applies to images the same treatment that Gaddafi inflicted on his people. The details of the process – an alteration of the binary essence of the image by integrating the text of the book in its code – are superfluous but lay the foundations for a distortion of reality via an alienation of the photographic grammar. It was legitimate to respond to Gaddafi’s Manichean vision with a binary system"

Yet most of these folks seem to think this the most exciting thing they have seen all week. Families grab cameras, young men climb the airport fence to get ever-more-dangerously close, and swimmers in the sea turn toward the incoming plane like worshipers welcoming a god."

Matthew Pillsbury is the subject of a feature in The's photo blog:Behold:

“In my own exploration of the city over the years, I’ve become both attached to some of its iconic places and structures such as the Brooklyn Bridge, but I’ve also taken a keen interest in the new additions, such as Jane’s Carousel and Brooklyn Bridge Park, that push the city to evolve while still reflecting its past. The extreme multiculturalism of New York City creates a heightened energy that few other cities possess, and its incredibly varied architecture mirrors that, creating a striking backdrop for my images.”

The Bonni Benrubi gallery is pleased to announce representation of Lauren Semivan

The gallery is now representing the work of Detroit based artist lauren Semivan. Semivan's photos are beautiful, evocative images created by capturing staged scenes of drawing, scupture, portraiture and still life:

“Science is inherently experiential, as is art making. Knowing and feeling are not separate, and the whole of the environment can be used as a pedagogic instrument. Observatory elegantly draws upon a tension that exists between irrational and physical worlds. Within each image, ghosts of previous drawings create a sense of time suspended, evoking gesture, atmosphere and memory. Photographs allow me to access the extraordinary, to keep a record of dreams, and to employ the unknown.”

Time Lightbox posts Gillian Laub's Thanksgiving

Gillian Laub has documented her growing family for years, and this year Time Light Box has posted images from her recent Thanksgiving shoot.

"For as long as she can remember, Thanksgiving has been photographer Gillian Laub’s favorite holiday. “So many of my memories from childhood are around Thanksgiving because I have a huge family, and that was when everyone from all sides came together.” Ten years ago, Laub began photographing her family’s annual gatherings—which take place at Laub’s childhood home or her sister’s house in upstate New York—an experience she says has allowed her to watch her family grow up and record the process for posterity. “I really started photographing Thanksgiving because there’s something incredible about the time of the year,” Laub says. “The changing and transitioning of the seasons and the aging of my family members—there was something symbolic that I wanted to mark and document.”"

Louis Stettner retrospective at The Bibliothèque Nationale de France

At the end of the year, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France will present a retrospective of Louis Stettner's career. The exhibition will run from December 11, 2012 to January 27, 2013.

David Guiraud, the curator, decided to focus on Stettner’s masterpieces, showing vintage prints of his most well-known photographs. From the famous "Enfants d'Aubervilliers" (1947) and “Twin Towers” (1977), seen in the fog with a bird rushing toward them, to a 1954 portrait of Manhattan as seen from Brooklyn, we see his humanistic and poetic vision, shrouded in lights of which he alone knew the secret.

"There is something a little elegiac for me to look a those pictures,” she said last week, as plumbers fixed the heat and hot water systems in her home, which had flooded to the basement ceiling. “These photos were never intended to glorify surfing. Now they’re about saying this is another community that has been disrupted, maybe even irreparably damaged by the force of the waves. These pictures were a kind of love song to the Rockaways. Now, they’re almost like a dirge."

Abelardo Morell feature in New York Photo Review

Abelardo Morell's current exhibition Rock Paper Scissors is featured in The New York Photo Review this week:

"Using an elaborate tent set-up to project images onto the ground in order to photograph them, Morell essentially works around digital photography’s inability to do double exposure well, if at all. All the color work shown at Bonni Benrubi has something of interest to offer, with the most intriguing suggesting earth drawings on the order of the Nazca lines in Peru. All of them have a textural quality, both tactile and mysterious, which gives one the feeling of looking through a window on a particularly windy day. Along with their generally muted colors, they suggest old postcards and hand painted prints."

Christopher Payne interview on Urban Omnibus

Urban Omnibus, a project of the Architectural League of New York, is featuring an interview with Chris Payne on their website:

"Out of the Asylum project I developed an interest in manufacturing. The hospital complexes were meant to be self-sufficient, so making things was a significant component of daily life. That spoke to me, because it’s something we don’t really see nowadays. We tend not to know where the things we consume come from. But go to these state hospitals, and there’s the dairy farm, there’s the farm, there’s where they made the shoes and clothes, and that’s the power plant and that’s the sewage treatment plant. It was all right there. And thinking about how the patients made all of these things helped shed a better light on the institutions."

Jehad Nga's new series featured in Time Lightbox

The Green Project, a new series by Jehad Nga, is featured in a short essay and slideshow in Time Lightbox:

"Once the images were captured, I wanted to further explore the meaning of my action. I first reduced each image to its most basic structure, binary code, which singled it out from the other billion bits of data shooting through the sky. This conversion exposed each image’s digital “cell structure”—millions of algorithms mathematically, miraculously unified to produce something of beauty. Code is built in layers, each with a metaphor constructed by its programmer to enact and describe its behavior. Reducing an image to pure binary data strips it of any individual identity, any protection, and any premise."

Susannah Ray featured in Lenscratch photo blog

Lenscratch photo blog has a feature on Susannah Ray this week:

"Surf culture is usually associated with the West Coast. Our visions of the Beach Boys and Gidget inform our imaginations, as do sunny skies and palm trees, but photographer Susannah Ray sees surfing a little differently. Shot on the "right coast", there is a intensity and unique perspective about surfing in the proximity of New York City, especially in the winter."

Chris Payne featured in The Huffington Post

Chris Payne's current exhibition One Steinway Place is the subject of a feature in the Huffington Post called 'One Steinway Place': The Year-Long Process Of Crafting A Steinway Piano:

"By looking intently at the step-by-step process of constructing a piano, Payne offers a portrait of the craftsmanship that animates wood into sinuous curves, steel into pulsating string, felt into hammer, and ivory that responds to minute gradations of human touch."

Vanessa Atlan's Wonderland Stereo featured on Le Journal de la Photographie

Vanessa Atlan's Wonderland Stereo series is featured in this week's Le Journal de la Photographie:

"A mise-en-abîme of pop culture, this fake label plays with the rules of the genre, working both as an homage and a parody. The artist offers reflections on the star system, this machine that transforms miserable lives into fabulous epics overnight, and the almost narcotic power of the codified representations that make for the beauty and mythology of rock. A total work of art, Wonderland Stereo reminds us of the fundamental role played by the imagination in all creative processes. It can create entire fictional lives from scratch. This is a plausible world, where the border between fiction and reality is constantly pushed."

Chris Payne featured in Elle Magazine

Raquel Laneri has written a full length feature in Elle Magazine this month about Chris Payne's current exhibition at the gallery:

"Payne is obsessed with craftsmanship. A trained architect, his interest in how buildings, objects, and, on a grander scale, societies are put together and function drives his photographic work: series on mental asylums, deserted communities, and textile factories. "One Steinway Place" pulls apart the engineering and artistry that go into making a piano: the bandaged hands that pull the piano strings through its body; the elderly man applying varnish with his paintbrush; the hammers and jagged pieces of metal and accordion-like machinery that do who knows what. But unlike his previous photo series, which eulogized the abandoned or forgotten, "One Steinway Place" is pulsing with life. "I’d like to think I’m moving in a direction where I’m celebrating what’s happening now as opposed to just looking in the past," says Payne."

Abelardo Morell featured in The San Francisco Chronicle

The San Francisco Chronicle has featured a story on Abelardo Morell and his new images of The Golden gate Bridge:

"It's really an old-fashioned idea of using light projected in a camera obscura way," says Morell, who came out from his suburban Boston studio on a blustery weekend in April. His mission was to make three oversize prints to enhance his installation "Vertigo," which involves a working camera obscura set up inside Fort Point.

The location he has chosen for his shoot is above the fort at East Battery. He arrives directly from the airport as the western winds are still clearing the skies of a thunderstorm. The tent is a white geodesic dome with black lining that keeps it dark inside. To give the image depth and mystery Morell scatters rocks and debris on the tent floor.

"The effect is kind of a naturally made surrealism," he says.

Massimo Vitali image portfolio in Vanity Fair

This month's Vanity Fair features an image portfolio of Massimo Vitali's work called In Full View: Massimo Vitali’s Italy:

"From historic piazzas to local swimming holes, photographer Massimo Vitali has long used his camera as a tool for social research—studying what happens when people come together in public places. Working with large-format cameras since 1993, Vitali observes his subjects from a distance, capturing their unguarded interactions with their environment and one another in extraordinary detail. The results of his globe-trotting projects have been exhibited worldwide and showcased in the books Landscape and Figures and Natural Habitats, both published by Steidl, as well as in V.F.’s May issue.

Christopher Payne photographs in the New York Times Magazine

Chris Payne's photographs of the Steinway factory in Astoria, Queens are featured in The New York Times magazine for a story called The Steinway Way:

"Nothing enters the Steinway factory in Astoria, Queens, looking anything like a piano. The wood, for example, is just lumber, before it is shaped into the rim of the instrument. Assembling the pianos takes months, with a lot of waiting between steps so that the wood can be conditioned properly. Near the end of the process, each piano is wheeled into the ‘‘pounding room,’’ where 88 rubber fingers play the instrument for hours, breaking in the piano and exposing any problems or weaknesses..."

Paolo Pellegrin Exhibition at The Maison Europeene de la Photo in Paris

The Maison Europeene de la Photo in Paris is hosting an exhibition of Paolo Pellegrin prints until June 17th:

This exhibition, the first major retrospective on the work of Paolo Pellegrin, was presented at the Fondazione Forma, Milan, in 2011. It features some 200 prints from photographic series and reportage work including: Cambodia (1998), Kosovo (1999-2001), Iraq (2003), Darfur (2004), Palestine/West Bank (2002-2004), Hurricane Katrina (2005), the Tsunami (2005), Gaza (2005), Haiti (1995-2010), Afghanistan and Lebanon (2006), and Iran (2009). All represent essential phases in Pellegrin's journalistic career, and reflect a worldview founded on both passion and talent.
The exhibition title, Dies iræ ( 'day of wrath' in Latin), is that of a partially apocalyptic poem that used to be sung in requiem masses. Written in Latin on the subject of God's wrath on Judgment Day, the poem talks of the return of Christ and the summoning of God's creatures before His throne so that their actions may be judged.

Matthew Pillsbury's current exhibition featured in The New York Times

Matthew Pillsbury's current exhibition City Stages is the subject of a New York Times article by Clinton Cargill titled "Matthew Pillsbury’s New York Stages":

"Pillsbury’s photographs, taken with a large-format camera using long exposures, track the way we occupy these spaces over time, so that rather than being pictures of landmarks, they reflect the blurred residue of lived experience. In a photograph from the Big Apple Circus, we see the traces of a contortionist’s performance, but also the subtle movements of the audience members as they watch. In a photograph taken from the press riser at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, the swarming crowds lining the street are as important as the floats gliding through the frame."

Abelardo Morell featured in Focus Magazine

The latest issue of Focus Magazine features a lengthly interview with Abelardo Morell:

"It dawned on me that it might be interesting to try to make a
picture inside that huge camera. I had no idea how to do it technically.
I converted our living room into a camera obscura—with a hole
[cut into one of the window coverings]—and we could see inside
the room what the upside-down image [from the outside] was. The
trick was to figure out how to make an exposure inside such a room.
My first experiences were failures, because I thought, I’ll do a fiveminute
exposure, then run down to the darkroom to develop it—and it
was blank. OK, then half an hour—blank. Two hours, and there were
just the beginning of highlights. Anyway, it took me half a summer to
figure out that for the pictures I was making at that time, an exposure
of about eight hours was required..."

Rena Bass Forman (1954 - 2011)

It is with great sadness that we announce one of our favorite artists, Rena Bass Forman passed away at 57 years of age on November 27th, 2011.

Official obituary below:

Rena Bass Forman, 57, died on November 27, 2011 from complications of a malignant brain tumor.

Born on March 17, 1954, she was the only child of Anne Loewy Bass, a holocaust survivor and Milton Bass, a garment business owner in Manhattan. She grew up in New York City, studying ballet with George Balanchine. Rheumatoid arthritis ended her career. She attended Hofstra University and Rutgers University, earning a Master’s degree in Arts in Education.

In 1978, Rena married Scott Forman. They moved to Massachusetts in 1981 where she worked at the DeCordova Museum for two years. She began to photograph landscapes in 1978. Several of her hand- painted photographs were published in various treatises on the topic. She began shooting medium format black and white, gelatin silver, sepia-toned photographs in the late 1980?s.

She traveled the globe in search of inspiring landscapes. Her bodies of work include images from locales as diverse as the American Southwest, Turkey, Indonesia and Chilean Patagonia to Atlantic Canada, Iceland, Greenland and the Norwegian Archipelago of Svalbard. Her work has been shown and collected widely throughout the United States and Europe.

It is imbued with the timeless atmosphere of diverse and endangered landscapes.

She is survived by her husband, Scott Forman, MD of Piermont, New York, two daughters, Zaria of Brooklyn, Leila, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and her father, Milton Bass of Tamarac, Florida.


Simon Norfolk will be included in a group exhibition at The Museum of Photography in Antwerp from Feb. 17th to March 6th.
The exhibition titled Imaging History will include works by: Shimon Attie, Sally Mann, Bart Michiels, Simon Norfolk, Taryn Simon, Bruno Vandermeulen and Danny Veys

"Norfolk's new work looks at what happens when you add half a trillion US war dollars to an impoverished and broken country such as Afghanistan. Very loosely re-photographic in nature, the work is presented as an artistic collaboration between Burke and Norfolk. It features photographs by Burke never before published as well as Norfolk's new pictures from Kabul and Helmand..."

Massimo Vitali, Arcadian Remains, a Critic's Pick in this month's Artforum.

Chloe Rossetti has a review of Massimo Vitali's current exhibition in the latest issue of Artforum:

"...The scale of the coastlines in Vitali’s enormous, saturated C-prints dwarf their fleshy inhabitants, creating a Where’s Waldo–type effect; a patient viewer is handsomely rewarded with a smorgasbord of candid moments between unknowing participants. The prints line the walls of the gallery on all sides, encircling a seating area that invites a leisurely look. It takes time to pick out what one might consider to be the “stars” of these scenes. In Les Catedrales, Low Tide, 2011, for example, a row of four intertwined visitors walk away from the knotted crowd, turning their backs on a pristine sea—three are dressed in identical white, flanked by an individual in a blood-red shirt. In Porto Miggiano, 2011, a white-haired man in neon-blue swimming trunks squats awkwardly on a rock. An inflatable blue mattress leans precariously on a nearby outcropping, out of place in the flesh-and-limestone landscape."

"The Photo League show has an ironic commentary on this mercenary declaration: in Louis Stettner's Coming to America, a Jewish immigrant and his child, swaddled in blankets, huddle on the deck of a ship, buffeted by gales as they stare at a flailing wintry ocean. The promised land is nowhere to be seen."

Jeffrey Milstein's “AirCraft: The Jet as Art” Opens at the National Air and Space Museum

"AirCraft: The Jet as Art" opens at the National Air and Space Museum Nov. 25 and will be on display for one year. The exhibition will feature 33 super-sized photographic archival-pigment prints that transform aviation technology into fine art.

A photographer and pilot, Jeffrey Milstein captures speeding aircraft as they are about to land and creates crisp images that highlight the design, color and symmetry of his subjects. Milstein uses photographic post-processing techniques and neutral backgrounds to focus attention on the elegance, colors and form of each aircraft. The aircraft with their spread wings evoke the human form or that of birds or insects.

"Milstein’s photographs of frozen moments evoke speed, technology and the excitement of flight," said Carolyn Russo, curator of the exhibition. "The enormity of the images seems to pull you into the air, as though you are going along for the ride. Collectively, Milstein’s jets are a photographic typology and part of an important trend in contemporary photography."

Jeffrey Milstein will be in the gallery from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, signing the AirCraft: the Jet as Art book published by Harry N. Abrams.

The National Air and Space Museum building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., is located at Sixth Street and Independence Avenue S.W. The museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is located in Chantilly, Va., near Washington Dulles International Airport. Both facilities are open daily from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. (closed Dec. 25). Admission is free, but there is a $15 fee for parking at the Udvar-Hazy Center.

Simon Norfolk: Burke + Norfolk featured in The Wall Street Journal

The gallery's current exhibition, Simon Norfolk: Burke + Norfolk has been featured in a Wall Street Journal article called A Teacher, a Student and Three Books, with Lisette Model and Lars Tunbjörk:

...Simon Norfolk (b. 1963) is a British photojournalist famed for his pictures of the war in Afghanistan. John Burke (1843-1900) was an Irishman who photographed the Second Anglo-Afghan War, 1878-1880. When Mr. Norfolk returned to Afghanistan last year after a decade's absence, he drew upon his study of Burke's 19th-century pictures for his new work...

David Leventi is featured in a Financial Times cover story this week about opera houses:

"It was a moment I will never forget. “This is the Callas spot,” said Riccardo Muti, at that time music director of La Scala, Milan’s opera house. He was indicating a precise point near the front of the stage, a few feet right of centre, where Maria Callas invariably took up position during performances there. The legendary diva reckoned it was the optimal place for projecting her voice during an aria. Woe betide anyone who got in the way...."

Gillian Laub feature in Time | Light Box

Gillian Laub's images of the Tel Aviv Beach have been featured in Time Magazine's Light Box

"Every Jew has two requests of God: a place in paradise in the next world, and a place on the Tel Aviv beach in this world,” wrote Sholem Asch, the Polish-born novelist, in 1937. Stretching five kilometers from its southern tip at the old port city of Jaffa to the new cluster of high rise hotels and condos at its northern end, Tel Aviv’s beach (or Tayelet as it’s called in Hebrew) probably looked a little different in Asch’s day. But I think of him as part of a long legacy of both travelers and natives who have sought refuge in those sands from Israel’s political dramas, which can gush like a Texas oil well. At the beach, I discovered Israel in all its vitality, without the conflict."

Laura McPhee's Something About Love exhibition at Carroll And Sons Gallery in Boston was reviewed by Cate McQuaid in The Boston Globe:

"In “Something About Love,’’ McPhee’s new show at Carroll and Sons, she follows her own daughter, Isobel, into her teens, and occasionally shoots other family members. The artist has concocted a visual ambrosia of wild hues, fervid blossoms, and pouty lips. Each piece is collaborative, representing both the artist’s perspective and her subject’s projection, shifting even within one work; each is a montage..."

In a presentation on Wednesday at Aperture, Norfolk talked about his shift away from photojournalism, saying that he had become enraged by the prosecution of the Gulf War and didn’t want his images, in which his perception and opinion are integral, to be offered as illustrations for newspaper articles with which he might strongly disagree..."

Simon Norfolk Featured in the New York Times Magazine

"Late last year, Simon Norfolk traveled to Afghanistan to retrace the footsteps of John Burke, a war photographer who once covered much of the same ground. Their work is being presented together this spring, at the Tate Modern in London, as an “artistic collaboration.”

“It’s just that one of us is dead,” Mr. Norfolk said.

And has been for quite some time."

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that two gallery artists, Simon Norfolk and Merry Alpern, will be featured in the exhibition EXPOSED at the Fundación Canal, in Madrid (formerly on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Tate Modern).

"Exposed offers a fascinating look at pictures made on the sly, without the explicit permission of the people depicted. With photographs from the late nineteenth century to present day, the pictures present a shocking, illuminating and witty perspective on iconic and taboo subjects."

Merry Alpern is featured in two of the five thematic sections of the exhibition with work from her Dirty Windows series included in Voyeurism and Desire, while work from her Shopping series is included in the Surveillance section of the exhibition. Simon Norfolk is likewise featured in Surveillance.

SIMON NORFOLK reviewed in the London Evening Standard

"Separated by almost a century and a half, John Burke and Simon Norfolk have become umbilically linked through photographs taken during two of Britain's wars in Afghanistan.

Norfolk's impeccable research into Burke's documentary of the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-1880) led to his own 2010 photographic project and he echoes the scenes preserved from the 19th-century pioneer's beautifully ornate photo-album."

Abelardo Morell featured in National Geographic

"Something strange and wonderful happens when light enters a dark space through a tiny opening. Aristotle described the phenomenon back in the fourth century B.C. Leonardo in Renaissance Italy sketched the process. In Coney Island and other 19th-century seaside resorts, tourists lined up to see the magical results. Shift to a Boston classroom, the year 1988. Cuban-born Abelardo Morell, teaching an introductory photography course at an art college, was curious to step back in time. On a sunny day, he covered the classroom windows with black plastic, making the space as dark as a cave, cut a dime-size hole in the material, and told his students to watch. Almost instantly the back wall came alive like a movie screen, its surface covered with a fuzzy image of people and cars moving along Huntington Avenue outside. Then the double take: The image was upside down, sky on floor, ground on ceiling, the laws of gravity seemingly gone haywire."

Simon Norfolk Reviewed in Financial Times

"On the south bank of the Thames, Tate Modern is having an overtly political moment. Its customary letters facing St Paul’s Cathedral spell out the message RELEASE AI WEIWEI, referring to the Chinese artist who was a beneficiary of a Unilever commission at Tate and is now under arrest in China. In the week that Osama bin Laden was executed in Pakistan, a powerful exhibition opens that focuses on the war in Afghanistan just over the border.
Simon Norfolk is a British photographer who has worked in Afghanistan before with considerable distinction. His book Afghanistan Chronotopia contrasted the appalling hardware used in the war with the beautiful mountain and desert landscapes in which it was waged. Norfolk is not a classic war photographer by any means – he is as interested in landscape as in conflict, and more interested in memory and the reshaping of truth than in anything practical. He is a radical intellectual with a camera."

DAVID LEVENTI photographs JFK Airport's T.W.A. Terminal for The New York Times Magazine

Gallery artist David Leventi's photographs accompany The New York Times Magazine's March 20, 2011 article, The T.W.A. Terminal, Reborn, celebrating the renovation of Eero Saarinen's 1962 master piece work which is still considered a "vanguard of modern design". Leventi is a maker of large prints taken with negatives from large format cameras. He meticulously captures the architectural grand interiors of landmark buildings. Currently, he is documenting opera houses all over the globe.

SIMON NORFOLK exhibition in the L2 gallery at the Tate Modern

In October 2010, Simon Norfolk began a series of new photographs in Afghanistan, which takes its cue from the work of nineteenth-century British photographer John Burke. Norfolk’s photographs reimagine or respond to Burke’s Afghan war scenes in the context of the contemporary conflict. Conceived as a collaborative project with Burke across time, this new body of work is presented alongside Burke’s original portfolios.

GEORGES DAMBIER featured in Cathy Horyn's On the Runway in The New York Times Fashion section

Georges Dambier, whose work is the subject of a delightful exhibition at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery on East 57th Street (through May 27), liked to use Paris as the backdrop for his fashion photographs. Or Cannes or Marrakesh. This was the postwar world of jazz clubs, existentialists, cheap travel, uncrowded streets, beautiful cars, artists and, of course, Paris couture. With his Rolleiflex, Mr. Dambier, who will be 86 on Tuesday, captured all of this with honest joie de vivre, publishing his fashion images in French Elle. And he worked with some of the era’s great beauties: Suzy Parker, Dorian Leigh, Bettina, Marie-Hélène Arnaud, Capucine, Ivy Nicholson and a young Brigitte Bardot.”

KARINE LAVAL reviewed in The New Yorker

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that the current exhibition of work by Karine Laval, entitled MISE EN ABYME, has been reviewed in the Goings on About Town:Art section of the The New Yorker website.
MISE EN ABYME is on view from January 13th through March 19th, 2011

"Laval returns to a favorite subject—swimming pools—in summery photographs that both suggest and invite total immersion. Several of the largest pictures depict clothed figures that appear as liquid as the agitated water around them. Even more pleasurably disorienting is a smaller series that plays with reflections, often flipping the scene so that sky and water are reversed and the world turns an aqua blue. Because Laval’s colors have always skewed toward the sun-bleached and the watery, these images aren’t unexpected, but they push her farther toward abstraction, which seems like a fine place for her to be."

Iconic Surfing Photographer LEROY GRANNIS passes away at 93

We are sad to report that the iconic surf photographer and founder of Surf Magazine in the 1960’s LeRoy Grannis passed away on February 3, 2011.

ABELARDO MORELL reviewed in ARTnews

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that the concurrent exhibitions of new work by Abelardo Morell, which were on view this fall, GROUNDWORK and The Universe Next Door, have been reviewed in the February 2011 issue of ARTnews.

"In "The Universe Next Door" at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery and "Groundwork" at Bonni Benrubi, the Cuban-born photographer Abelardo Morell showed an impressive mastery of both antiquated techniques, such as the camera obscura and the cliche verre, and modern digital photography, all to produce otherworldly images."
-Steve Barnes, ARTnews

CEDRIC DELSAUX featured in Art in America

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that gallery artist Cedric Delsaux has been included in a feature entitled "A Planet of Relics" in the January issue of Art in America.

"The mightiness of production and consumption turns mute on arrival when captured by the camera. Our negligent habits as stewards of the earth, and of our own prospects, are put on display, as if by institutional emphasis. The effect degrades what was once obviously functional and leaves everything, even of recent vintage, in a state of didactic remoteness."

-Max Kozloff, Art in America

An online version of the article and slideshow of related images is available on the Art in America website.

ABELARDO MORELL featured in The New Yorker

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that the current exhibition of new work by Abelardo Morell GROUNDWORK has been reviewed in The New Yorker.

"These dreamlike visions were made by allowing a pinhole of light into a darkened room, projecting a single, upside-down image. Sometimes, Morell rights that disorienting image with a lens; either way, the results are wonderful and oddly exhilarating."

Furthermore, The Island of Rota,, a collaborative publication by the Library Council of the Museum of Modern Art that combines Morell's cliche verre photographs with the design of Ted Muhling and writings of Oliver Sacks, is featured on the "Photo Booth" section of The New Yorker website.

Our current exhibition of Morell's photographs is on view at the gallery through January 8th, 2011.

ABELARDO MORELL featured in New York Magazine

"Coveted by kings and admired by gardeners in ancient and modern times alike, the tulip has nearly brought nations to moral and economic ruin. The Tulip Anthology is a beautiful and comprehensive celebration of this most astonishing and beloved of flowers."

SIMON NORFOLK photographs Yemen for The New York Times Magazine

Gallery artist Simon Norfolk's photographic essay of Yemen for The New York Times Magazine documents the growing concern that the country is emerging as a hotbed for Al Qaeda activity.

"Yemen is the Arab world's poorest country, with a fast-growing and deeply conservative Muslim population of 23 million. It is running out of oil and may soon be the first country in the world to run out of water. The central government is weak and corrupt, hemmed in by rebellions and powerful tribes. Many fear that Al Qaeda is gaining a sanctuary in the remote provinces east of Sana... similar to the one it already has in Afghanistan and Pakistan."

- The New York Times Magazine, July 11th, 2010


Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that two gallery artists, Simon Norfolk and Merry Alpern, have been featured in the exhibition EXPOSED, currently on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

"Exposed offers a fascinating look at pictures made on the sly, without the explicit permission of the people depicted. With photographs from the late nineteenth century to present day, the pictures present a shocking, illuminating and witty perspective on iconic and taboo subjects."

Merry Alpern is featured in two of the five thematic sections of the exhibition with work from her Dirty Windows series included in Voyeurism and Desire, while work from her Shopping series is included in the Surveillance section of the exhibition. Simon Norfolk is likewise featured in Surveillance.

The exhibition will be on view through January 30, 2011.

JEHAD NGA : TURKANA reviewed in The New Yorker and The Wall Street Journal

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce that the exhibition of Jehad Nga's recent work, Turkana, was reviewed in the July 12th issue of The New Yorker, as well as the June 8th edition of the Wall Street Journal's Greater New York feature.

"Posing informally in a tent that blocks out the surrounding terrain as well as most of the light, Nga’s subjects are cloaked in darkness but picked out by shafts of sun. Handsome figures in colorful robes and bright beaded necklaces, they recall Leni Riefenstahl’s Nuba tribesmen and Irving Penn’s Dahomey villagers, and the decision to isolate them from their environment makes them appear more iconic."

-The New Yorker

CEDRIC DELSAUX featured in The New Yorker magazine

The current exhibition of Cedric Delsaux's recent work, Nous resterons sur Terre, has been reviewed in the May 4th issue of The New Yorker.

"This French photographer makes a strong solo début with a group of large-scale color
images whose common theme is often the fraught convergence of man and nature."
-The New Yorker
