Join Carlos Cazalis, Sandi Haber Fifield, David Levinthal, Wendy Paton, and Rosemarie Zens for a signing of their monographs from Kehrer Verlag.
Occupy São Paulo by Carlos Cazalis
Since 2005 Carlos Cazalis has been photographing some of the world's largest cities, Occupy São Paulo being the first chapter in his Urban Meta project. As one of the world's mega cities reaching a population of 20 million, the city of São Paulo perpetuates a tremendous urban stress to it's residents, especially in terms of habitat. The bare necessity of finding shelter, a home, is amongst the most economically challenging situations, whether one is rich or poor. For those on the lower end of the spectrum, the idea of a home is a constant process of adding walls, a room, a second floor and a roof over an ex tended period of time. For those wealthy enough to build their dream home, whether as a penthouse on a high rise or as a well guarded house, the fear of leaving the home is as great as the necessity of returning back safely. Cazalis' images show the chaos, the sense of loss, the daily struggles of the city's dwellers.
After the Threshold by Sandi Haber Fifield
Throughout her career, fine art photographer Sandi Haber Fifield has worked with multiple images to create narrative pieces that transcend the formal elements of photography confined to a single moment. The associations she makes result in composites of four, sometimes three images, often rendered in soft focus, which are like visual poems reconstructed from memory or dreams.
War Games by David Levinthal
David Levinthal, a central figure in the history of American postmodern photography, has staged uncanny tableaux using toys and miniature dioramas for nearly 40 years. Mounted to celebrate the Corcoran Gallery's acquisition of a major, career-spanning body of work, this publication features the artist's photography on the subject of war.
Visages de Nuit by Wendy Paton
American photographer Wendy Paton allows herself to disappear in order to let her subjects emerge from the night. In Visages de Nuit (Faces of Night), Paton's eye is that of the celebrant as well as a voyeur, and in graphic compositions of black and white that mesmerize us, she offers personal and intimate glimpses of our human, ineffable presence. Her nocturnal portraits are both intimate and familiar, compelling and mysterious. Paton's work has been exhibited in gallery and museum venues internationally, and is in private and public collections in the United States and Europe.
Journeying 66 by Rosemarie Zens
These photographs are testimonies to the legendary Route 66 and our collective memories of the 1960s way of life commonly associated with it. Over 40 years ago, Rosemarie Zens followed the siren call of freedom "on the road." In 2010 she retraced her journey, witnessing how the highway had been transformed.
