Ruddy Roye: When Living Is A Protest @ Steven Kasher Gallery

Ruddy Roye: When Living Is A Protest
September 16th – October 29th, 2016

Opening Reception: September 16th, 2016, 6 – 8 PM

Roye spends his days walking the streets and photographing the people he encounters. He is no stranger to walking. In 2000, Roye walked 121 miles in his native Jamaica, from Montego Bay to Kingston, photographing squatters alongside an abandoned train line. He pays close attention to the way people move through the environment, acutely aware of those that we usually ignore. He is closer to his subjects than is typical in street photography, both emotionally and physically. This intimacy is augmented by his complex compositions of colors, lights, lines, signage and symbols.

The project documents the movement’s pioneering icons and includes nearly 70 portraits of artists like Shepard Fairey, Blek Le Rat, Seen, Ron English, Swoon, Faile, Space Invader and Vhils among others.

In 2012, Solkær set out to do a large scale portrait project about individuals who create art in the public space. The project aimed to document the contemporary street art movement and capture the genre’s pioneering icons and most significant artists. Commenting on his inspiration for the project, Solkær states, “Being from Denmark, I’ve seen interest in street art spread across Europe and the world. I felt that this was the perfect time to portray the people behind one of the most powerful and prevalent art movements of our time.”

Dynasty Marubi: Hundred years of Albanian studio photography
16 September – 27 November 2016

Dynasty Marubi shows extraordinary portraits from an extensive collection of 150.000 glass negatives, made in a photo studio in Albania.
Three generations of Marubi photographed a very diverse range of people, from the urban upper class to shepherds, the Ottoman emperor and King Zog, to criminals, famous actors and painters. Besides these portraits they also documented the most important events that took place in the tumultuous history of Albania. The exhibition is an introduction to the rich history of photography of this isolated European country that is often forgotten.

MATTHIAS HOCH
Hotel Kobenzl – The story of a house

The Salzburg Hotel Kobenzl, situated above the town, is known as a former luxury hotel. Meanwhile, there is a refugee distribution. As the Leipzig photographer Matthias Hoch visited together with writer Andreas Maier the Kobenzl 2 years ago for the first time, it is already empty for eight years.

The rooms are in good condition, virtually untouched and preserved. It’s like time travel. “The splendor of the former five-star scored something you could describe as charming patina.” However, it is not a house, but a group of buildings, consisting of the former mountain inn and various extensions of the 1970s. A single style mix. High interest to the history of the hotel, the traces of use, the question, which was considered a luxury.

By including archive footage is added another level, the history of the house is alive. We see the owner family Duke with celebrity guests such as Richard Nixon, Margaret Thatcher, Herbert Grönemeyer. Eventually, however, the famous stay away, the caravan moves on. In 2006, the hotel is closed.

Jock Sturges: The Absence of Shame
September 07 – October 30

Jock Sturges is famous for his series of families taken at communes in Northern California and in naturist resorts in France. The photographer’s initial rise to fame was burdened by controversy. The young age of some of his model drew the attention of a conservative federal task force that raided his studio and seized his files and equipment.

Despite these intemperate moral indictments his photographs are in fact devoid of exploitive or negative characteristics. There is beauty there; there is also truth – but no filth. His models never undress for the photographer – they were nude before he arrived and will be again as he departs. The photographer captures his models – girls and young women from nudist communities – in the surroundings that are organic to them.

July 8- August 27, 2016

Artist Talk: August 5, 5:30-6:30 Free, Public Welcome
Reception August 5, 6:30-9:00 Free, Public Welcome

‘The Syrian civil war, now in its fifth year, began when a group of young people spray painted anti-regime graffiti on the walls of their school. Their arrest, detention and torture led to protests and a violent crackdown by the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The series of actions and reactions has led to the deaths of an estimated 470,000 Syrians and caused 4.8 million more to flee the country. More than 1.4 million of these refugees have headed south to neighboring Jordan. Some have stayed in the Zaatari refugee camp, while most have spread throughout Jordan, settling in for what they believe to be a long separation from their homes and communities as they wait out a war with no end in sight.’
-Benjamin Rasmussen and Michael Friberg

Photographers Benjamin Rasmussen (Denver) and Michael Friberg (Salt Lake City) have created an editorial style series of work about the refugee crisis and those currently living in the Zaatari camp in Jordan. The immediacy of the images makes the Syrian refugees’ turmoil and living conditions relatable to the viewer and all the more real than a news report.
