Zoe Wetherall and Ashok Sinha: Strata
May 24th, 2018—June 24th, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 24th, 7-9 PM

“Aerial photography actually got its auspicious beginnings before airplanes and helicopters in 1858 when Gaspard-Félix Tournachon (known as “Nadar”) first mounted a tethered balloon in Paris with a large format camera. Things have been photographed from rockets, satellites, pigeons, you name it, but mostly nowadays they are taken from chartered helicopters and drones. In the two-person exhibition, “Strata,” Wetherall floats hundreds of feet gently above us in a balloon, while Sinha is soaring thousands of feet up in a jet airplane with scores of other passengers, who are unaware of his photographic exploits.”

Sandra Weiner @ Steven Kasher Gallery


Sandra Weiner: New York Kids, 1940-1966
June 7th-July 27th, 2018

“Weiner focused on New York’s poorer children, possibly because she identified with them but more so because she wanted to tell a story of perseverance and hope. Weiner’s work highlighted social concerns of the era, however she focused her lens specifically on the city’s youngest denizens. For Weiner, children surviving the rough-and-tumble city streets became a symbol of fortitude. She strolled the city’s streets or posted at the edge of vacant lots where children play and caught them absorbed in their own worlds. Included in the exhibition is an extended essay in which Weiner followed a young boy named Mickey through his daily life in the tenements of the Lower East Side. This is Weiner’s work at its most penetrating. Through this extended study, defining aspects of the boy’s life are revealed. The subtle details that emerge in these images give us a clear sense of the family’s hardship. However the young boy’s palatable joy and energy shines through, triumphing over his circumstances.”

Dan Weiner: Vintage New York 1940-1959
June 7th-July 27th, 2018

“Weiner is one of the original “concerned photographers.” In 1940 he joined the Photo League, a group of socially minded photographers including Paul Strand, W. Eugene Smith, Aaron Siskind and Dorothea Lange. Soon he was teaching an advanced class at the League. While taking part in Sid Grossman’s Documentary Class, out of which grew the “East Side Group,” Weiner photographed people and events around the Lower East Side. As his wife Sandra, whom he met during this period, later wrote, it was “an inspiring period for a young photographer.” Weiner firmly believed in the power of the camera to highlight social and economic problems and affect change.”

KAHN & SELESNICK @ Kopeikin Gallery


KAHN & SELESNICK: Madame Lulu’s Book of Fate
June 2nd – July 7th, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2nd from 6 – 8 pm

“Kahn & Selesnick’s latest project “Madame Lulu’s Book of Fate” continues the adventures of the Truppe Fledermaus, a cabaret troupe of anxious mummers and would-be mystics who catalogue their absurdist attempts to augur a future that seems increasingly in peril due to environmental pressures and global turmoil. In this body of work, the artists also examine the notion of the carnivalesque – traditionally the carnival was a time when the normal order of society was upended and reversed, so that at least for a day the fool might become king, the sinner a priest, men and women might cross dress, and sacred ceremonies and normal mores are burlesqued and spoofed. During such brief times of anarchy, societal pressures were relieved by revealing their somewhat absurd and arbitrary natures. Costumes and masks were traditionally worn so that all people might have the same social status during the duration of the festival. The Truppe ask you to consider: is it the carnival that is upside-down, or perhaps the real world that it purports to burlesque?”

Kirk Crippens & Gretchen LeMaistre @ Schilt Gallery


Kirk Crippens & Gretchen LeMaistre: Live Burls
26 May until 15 September 2018

Opening – Saturday 26 May 2018, 16.00-19.00

“Redwood trees are living witnesses to our human history, sometimes existing for as long as three thousand years. Out of respect for their ancient heritage, and after an extended period of aggressive logging in the late 1800s, Theodore Roosevelt championed protection efforts that led to the formation of the National Park Service. Pioneering photographers such as Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge also fostered preservation through their striking images, many of which influenced the United States Congress. Crippens and LeMaistre honor the link between the history of photography and conservation by retracing the paths and methods of the early photographic masters.”

Peter Ydeen @ Brick and Mortar Gallery


“Easton Nights” photographs by Peter Ydeen
May 19th – June 2nd 2018

Starting in the fall of 2015, Peter Ydeen has been photographing at night in the Easton Pennsylvania area. Starting with images of George Tice’s elegant night shots in mind, it soon matured into much more than he had expected. The night has it’s own visual rules, it’s own color wheel, and it’s own ethereal presence. The series depicts these American towns in mystical array of endless stages.
