Alina Fedorenko, Homes of India, Epson Premium Luster 260, 30'' x 45''

Alina Fedorenko: Vulnerability in Realism

Released: January 27, 2018

Often portraying families, men and women, young and old, living in difficult environmental conditions in India, the photographs of Alina Fedorenko disclose a beautiful world of labyrinths and narrow alleys. What distinguishes Fedorenko’s portraits from those of others who work in and around the mode of documentary realism is the way she allows a lavish coloration to emerge from her chosen settings and subject-matter. Using portraiture as her primary vehicle, she capture the intimacy of everyday life in photographs that frame the importance of familial and communal values. Exhibitio...

First Major International Exhibition of Sally Mann's Work of the South - Premieres at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, March 4–May 28, 2018, Travels

Released: January 08, 2018

Washington, DC—For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b. 1951) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work—figure studies, landscapes, and architectural views—is that it is all bred of a place, the American South. Using her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage, Mann asks powerful, provocative questions—about history, identity, race, and reli...

Clay Jordan, UNTITLED, Epson Premium Luster 260, 20'' x 20''

Clay Jordan: Existential Mysteries of Lived Experiences

Released: January 27, 2018

Clay Maxwell Jordan’s intuitive photographs hint at the existential mysteries of lived experiences. Mortality, nostalgia, and regret are recurring themes in his works that offer a unique point of view on life in the American South. Based in Athens, Georgia, Jordan frequently documents melancholic signs of the passing of time. His genre scenes and portraits capture the brevity of life, the fading of appearances, and the enduring landscape, the complexities of which are embraced in deceivingly straightforward compositions. Exhibition Dates: January 27 - February 7, 2018 Reception...

SIDNEY COSTA GASPAR, Porto de Santos, Digital on Fine Art Paper, 35'' x 52''

Shadow Cities: The Photography of Sidney Gaspar

Released: January 27, 2018

Self taught Brazilian photographer Sidney Gaspar documents the play of light and shadow in his theatrical landscapes shot in black and white. Scenes from Gaspar’s daily life in the port city of Santos are mediated by the artist’s lens, transforming everyday landscapes into painterly compositions. The psychological scenes capture dramatic urban vistas with perceptive attention as sky, sea, and city take on dreamy, otherworldly qualities. Architectural shapes loom like eerie skeletons, and mountains rise from the misty waters in a scene that looks devoid of human life, even post-apocalyp...

Jacob Wallwork, Trans-Mongolian Railway, Epson Premium Luster 260, 8'' x 24''

Jacob Wallwork: A World in Perpetual Transit

Released: January 27, 2018

The photographs of Australian native Jacob Wallwork capture the rugged romanticism that exists at the margins of a technologically-sophisticated world. Often documenting travel experiences, his work discovers moments of spontaneous abandon in the interstices of the workaday world. Focusing on outlying landscapes, nomadic train rides, and visages broken into smile, Wallwork uses the camera’s lens to seek out novelty emerging from the ordinary wherever possible. Showing viewers a world in perpetual transit, he authenticates these realities with the documentarian approach by which he fra...

Loïc Vendrame, Valdeluz, Spain, Epson Premium Luster 260, 20'' x 20''

Loïc Vendrame: Architecture and Artifice

Released: January 27, 2018

The photographs of Loïc Vendrame introduce viewers to novel architectural perspectives at the margins of structures that might feel entirely familiar. In his photography, the most functional designs become a source of ritualistic mystery. With a tonal range that encompasses the uncanny as much as the sublime, Vendrame communicates to viewers the architectural elegance that exists even after the utility of a building has long been abandoned. With an eye for the grandeur of these derelict structures, the artist peels back the histories layered into each building he photographs, mindful o...
