Zun Lee: Father Figure @ BRONX DOCUMENTARY CENTER

Billy Garcia and daughter Esmeralda enjoy a tender moment at a gas station. Bronx NY, 2012.

Zun Lee – Father Figure: Exploring Alternative Notions of Black Fatherhood
February 3 – March 31, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, February 3rd, 6-9PM

“Through intimate black-and-white photographs, Zun Lee offers an intimate view into the daily lives of Black men with whom Lee has worked closely since 2011–men who are parenting in sometimes difficult social, economic and personal circumstances. Lee brings into focus what father absence stereotypes have distorted: narratives by real fathers who are involved in their children’s lives. These men may not be perfect – few fathers are – but their parental presence firmly rejects familiar media caricatures.”

Book Review: The Kingdom by Stéphane Levoué

In 2010, French photographer Stéphane Lavoué discovered a special landscape in the United States, called Northeast Kingdom. It is located along the border to Canada in the northeast corner of Vermont, comprising Essex, Orleans and Caledonia counties. This beautiful, rugged, remote area has a population of roughly 65,000 people. Lavoué’s series and book, The Kingdom is a personal tribute.

When Stéphane Lavoué and his family first came to the Northeast Kingdom, he immediately felt he found a very special place. In the beginning, he wanted to make a body of work like a journalistic investigation. Levoué started his series with this idea in mind, but the project and the resulting book are far more than photo reportage. His images transcend into narrative fiction, even if all the people and places are based on a real place.

I have the habit of browsing through a book from front to back, then working my way back toward the front again. As a result, I came across the accompanying text at the back of the book and read the account right after my first pass through the book. The story is about a woman traveling to the Kingdom. She is searching for her brother who has been absent for many years. Could all the people and places Levoué captured be evidence of this story?

The French writer and journalist, Judith Perrignon, was asked to write her short piece to accompany the images. Her text was written after the photo series was completed, so her story is a mix of invented memories and fictional events.  With or without knowing this, an entirely new layer of meaning is applied when viewing the book with her text in mind. Before I knew the text was fictional, the portraits and scenes I had first encountered had me retracing my steps; wondering who and where Levoué had chosen to photograph because of their importance in the story. Levoué’s images have a timeless and surreal quality – natural lighting makes a man waring a hairnet and an Army graphic t-shirt look like a renaissance painting, and scenes of The Museum of Everyday Life could easily be mistaken for a setting from Twin Peaks, or a Wes Anderson film.

In addition to the striking images and text, the book itself feels great to hold. The embossed cover feels like leather, the printed end sheets of the book feature a map of the Northeast Kingdom; which invokes the idea that one is holding a personal journal, or an artifact that is a part of the mystery and the story within. The mystery deepened each time I went back to the images and re-read the text. Levoué’s world in The Kingdom had me revisit the work multiple times; and left me with more wonderful questions than answers.

Steve Kahn @ Howard Greenberg Gallery


Steve Kahn: The Hollywood Suites
February 1 – March 17, 2018

“Kahn created this body of work in rent-by-the-day rooms of an old tenement building in a run-down section of Hollywood, California. Looking to create work that spoke to containment and isolation, Kahn began photographing professional bondage models using a Polaroid camera. Later, in his studio, he would copy the Polaroids with 35 mm film, documenting the events he had orchestrated, and initiating a formal process of reproductions and generations. As Kahn notes, “These were situations entered into without a plan, full of anxiety, in the hope of producing some document of the experience that was explicit, visually powerful, yet went beyond what it was.””

JEFFREY MILSTEIN @ Benrubi Gallery

Gatwick 2 Planes, 2016

JEFFREY MILSTEIN: Leaning Out
January 25 – March 17, 2018

opening reception on Thursday, January 25, 6-8pm

“The advent of aerial photography has changed the way people see their world more than any other development since Eadweard Muybridge’s seminal images of moving animals in the second half of the nineteenth century. The impact is immediately visible in Leaning Out, the new solo show by Jeffrey Milstein at Benrubi Gallery, his second at the gallery. Milstein’s overhead images of ports, train yards, airports, parking lots, and cityscapes, shot from small planes and helicopters, reveal harmonious symmetries invisible during daily life, yet are still somehow familiar. It’s as if we’ve seen these views before, or constructed them with an idea of what they would look like from 2,000 feet above the ground.”
