TEMA STAUFFER @ Baxter St at the Camera Club of NY

TEMA STAUFFER: Paterson
June 6 – 27, 2015

Opening Reception June 6, 2015 | 6 – 8pm

Paterson is a series of documentary street portraits depicting residents of a post-industrial city in New Jersey during the years following the American economic crisis. Paterson is a historic city near the Great Falls of the Passaic River, once prosperous from its mills and silk manufacturing industry. Founded in 1791 by Alexander Hamilton and others and envisioned as the nation’s first planned industrial city, Paterson offered jobs and opportunity to an immigrant labor force in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and it was a stop on the Underground Railroad. The city is the setting of novels by Junot Diaz and John Updike, and has inspired the poetry of William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg, as well as photography by George Tice. The third largest city in New Jersey, Paterson began to decline economically during the 1960s and 70s, and has continued to face high rates of unemployment since the recession. Downtown Paterson is lined with dollar stores, barbershops, beauty salons, bakeries, bars, churches, temples, and other small businesses. While its downtown streets are bustling, these streets are also a place of visible struggle.

Paula McCartney @ Kopeikin Gallery

unnamedPaula McCartney: A Field Guide to Snow and Ice
June 13th – July 11th 2015

After relocating from San Francisco to Minneapolis, McCartney made a decision to brave the elements to photograph her experience in new surroundings. Her self-proclaimed fascination with winter extends beyond the actual season and any defining physical substance. This project is a documentation of winter in many surprising geographic locations and unsuspecting material forms.

Nikolay Bakharev @ Julie Saul Gallery

June 4 – July 17

Bakharev began photographing during the Soviet era when it was illegal to photograph or exhibit nudes. His ambiguous images of Russian bathers on public beaches, and individuals and groups photographed in private homes, play on the tension between acceptable and unacceptable imagery. As Karen Rosenberg said in her 2013 New York Times review – they are “unexpectedly linked by the game spirit and conspiratorial demeanor of his subjects.”
