IGAEL SHEMTOV: The Photo Album 1979-80

Opening Reception February 7, 2015 | 6 – 8pm

The main focus of the exhibition is Shemtov’s series ‘The Photo Album, 1979-80,’ a project that he intended to publish in the early 80s but that is only now being published as a limited edition artist book of two volumes. In this body of work Shemtov looks at lower-middle-class living environments in Israel during that period, depicting both interiors of private homes and exterior public spaces. Photographing in color with a “family album” snapshot aesthetic; he creates images that combine a sense of transience and poverty alongside his subjects’ embrace of kitsch.

LIVING ON A DOLLAR A DAY @ VIEWPOINT PHOTOGRAPHIC ART CENTER IN SACRAMENTO

unnamed (1)RENÉE C. BYER: LIVING ON A DOLLAR A DAY: THE LIVES AND FACES OF THE WORLD’S POOR
FEBRUARY 11 – MARCH 7, 2015

ARTIST RECEPTION: FEBRUARY 13, 6:00-8:30PM

To create her work for Living On A Dollar A Day: The Lives and Faces of the World’s Poor, a ground-breaking project that is a call to action to eradicate extreme poverty, Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer traveled to ten countries on four continents to illuminate the human faces of poverty. With support from The Forgotten International, a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco that works to alleviate poverty worldwide, Byer sought out people who live on the brink of survival — on a dollar a day. Her beautiful and searing photographs along with the personal stories Byer gathered, give a voice to those who would not otherwise be heard.
