NANCY BARON AND PAMELA LITTKY: AMERICAN DESERT DREAMS
APRIL 1 – MAY 6, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTISTS: FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 7-9PM

“American photographers, Nancy Baron and Pamela Littky will be showing works from their respective series of photographs documenting the physical and social terrain of the American Desert. Baron’s work studies the midcentury modern environment and lifestyle of Palm Springs, while Littky’s work examines the harsh desert life in two Mojave Desert towns claiming to be The Gateway to Death Valley. A close look at these seemingly disparate, tight-knit communities of Death Valley and Palm Springs shows surprising similarities in their paths to The American Dream, rising from the desert sands.”

Steve Bailey @ Aberystwyth Arts Centre


Steve Bailey: Walking the Dog
1 April – 24 May

Exhibition Opening Friday 7 April, 6-8pm

“The photographs in this exhibition cover the entire length of the Ceredigion coastal path from Gwbert in the south to Ynyslas in the north. There have been many great photographs of this coastline, but Bailey looks beyond the magnificent views of land and sea, to show that there is more to see than meets the eye: coastal erosion, drama, beauty, the unexpected, and plenty of light. What may first appear familiar soon seems like another world.”

Book review: Havana: Light Beyond Vision by Andrew Child

 A Visual Exploration through Color Infrared Panoramic Photography

For the past several years, Boston based photographer Andrew Child has been traveling off of the beaten path in Havana, Cuba and its surrounding countryside, capturing rare images that explore its many hidden gems. Using his truly unique approach allows the photographer to reveal sunlight that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Over sixty of these vivid panoramic images have been compiled into a 136-page, 13” x 11” coffee table book, Havana: Light Beyond Vision. With captions offering insight into the places, people, culture and history, from Hemingway’s seaside fishing village of Cojímar to Havana’s bustling avenidas, each image comes to life with a dreamlike quality that mirrors the mysteries of this island nation.

The recent expansion of permitted travel to Cuba has allowed many people to see this beautiful country and its iconic architecture and culture. Many in Cuba fear that the influx of visitors will be a double edged sword. While the country will enjoy the benefits of a blooming tourism industry, the rush to modernize and accommodate this influx will likely lead to the erosion of the culture and environment that was preserved for decades. The views that Child offers us may be some of the last remaining surveys of unchanged sights that would’ve been seen by the likes of Ernest Hemingway in the early twentieth century.

“Havana has a unique blend of Cuban hospitality, beautiful neocolonial architecture, Caribbean sensuality, and economic potential that keeps pulling me back. It’s also a country in transition – with one foot in Cold War socialism and one in free market capitalism – the perfect setting for exploring vision, perception, and misperception. The point of this book isn’t to offer a stance on the complex relationship between the United States and Cuba. Instead, I share this book with the public in the hopes of shedding some light, both literal and figurative, on our neighbors to the south.” explains Child.

Ted Russell @ Steven Kasher Gallery


Ted Russell: Bob Dylan NYC 1961-1964
April 20th – June 3rd, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 20th, 6-8PM

“Russell first shot Dylan singing at Folk City. The next day he shot Dylan with his girlfriend, Suze Rotolo in their walk-up brownstone apartment at 161 West 4th Street. Rotolo worked for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and for SANE (The Committee for a SANE Nuclear Policy). Dylan first wrote civil rights and anti-nuclear war songs under her influence and called her “the most erotic thing I’d ever seen.” In this 1961 set Dylan is adolescent, smooth, relaxed. He pretends to be unaware of the camera, but clearly basks in its gaze. On stage and off, he is a performer, a charmer of great suavity. He plays guitar and harmonica on stage, and on and off the mattress on the apartment floor. He takes his glasses on and off. He fiddles with Rotolo, who the camera also loves. The apartment is full of endearing personal effects: a wicker trimmed phonograph, a stuffed beagle, wine bottles on the floor, a framed reproduction of Roualt’s “The Old King”.”

Martha Cooper
April 20th – June 3rd, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 20th, 6-8PM

“From 1977 to 1980, Cooper was a staff photographer at the New York Post. While on daily assignments throughout the city she was intrigued by the ingenuity of unsupervised kids playing amidst the rubble of disintegrating neighborhoods. Her interest in documenting creative play led to a chance encounter with HE3, a young graffiti artist tagging in the Bronx. He asked Martha if she “wanted to meet a king” and took her to meet legendary street artist Dondi. Soon after, Dondi introduced Cooper to other famous graffiti artists of the 70s and the 80s, including Daze, Futura and Seen. Like an ethnographer, she started to accompany them on their late night art-driven missions with the goal of documenting their work. Cooper says, “Until then I had not really understood how they had been able to paint such large pieces — often covering an entire subway car — in one night. Or how they could climb up to the top of the train and paint.””
