Brett Leigh Dicks @ Maitland Gaol’s historic B Wing Cell Block


Brett Leigh Dicks – Behind These Walls: Photographs of Decommissioned Australian Gaols
16 December 2017 – 23 February 2018

“Empty prisons are eerie places. Each prison has its own history, character, and stories to tell, but so too does every cell. Etched into their walls is the passing of successive generations of inmates each of who has carved their passing. For the past decade Australian photographer, Brett Leigh Dicks, has been photographing abandoned prisons the world over. His latest project has seen the US-based photographer exploring decommissioned prisons and gaols in his homeland of Australia. ”

Hygiene – A Circle of Life
8 November 2017 – 21 January 2018

“Ever since Fotografiska initiated the series seven years ago, the Fotografiska For Life exhibitions have contributed to putting the spotlight on important issues that need to be addressed. In Sweden and internationally. Photography is an inclusive art form that elicits involvement, which is why it is so effective in reaching both mind and soul and provoking new thinking. This, in turn, leads to commitment and a desire to change things. Something happens when you encounter art – you encounter your fellow beings and you encounter yourself. Fotografiska’s vision is always to inspire a more conscious world.”

VALDIR CRUZ @ Throckmorton Fine Art


VALDIR CRUZ: P r e s e n c e s
December 7, 2017 – February 24, 2018

“Over the past three decades, Cruz has chronicled unique and ephemeral places in Brazil where the people and the landscapes create an indelible impression on the viewer. In the words of Spencer Throckmorton, “Valdir Cruz’s exquisite photography bears out Tolstoy’s observation that to be universal one only needs to talk about his own village.” Kraige Block, Executive Director of Throckmorton Fine Art says, “Valdir Cruz is as much an anthropologist as a photographer. The power of these images of Brazilian people, distinctive landscapes, and magnificent waterfalls opens a discussion about human societies and the environment.””

Stacy Kranitz @ Tracey Morgan Gallery


Stacy Kranitz: Fulcrum of Malice
December 1st –

Opening Friday, December 1st, 6-8 PM

“Stacy Kranitz’s work explores history, representation and otherness within the documentary tradition. She uses photography to open up a narrative that confronts our understanding of culture; one poised between notions of what is right and what is wrong. Kranitz is interested in carving out a path that explores the subjective relationship to the people she photographs resulting in images that are meant to implicate the photographer as well as the viewer.”

Jean-Pierre Laffont @ Sous Les Etoiles Gallery


Jean-Pierre Laffont: Turbulent America
NOVEMBER 16, 2017 -JANUARY 6, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 6-8 PM

“As a photographer for the Gamma Agency, Sygma Photo News, as well as a White House Correspondent, Laffont traveled across the country to portray the America that he saw with an insatiable curiosity. His photographs provide viewers with an unaltered look into American life, from protests for and against the Vietnam War, Civil Rights movements marching on Washington, Nixon’s departure from the White House, the Flower Power movement, the first gay pride parades, or even New York gangs. Speaking about these images Laffont comments, “They do what photographs do best: freeze decisive moments in time for future examination. These photographs form a personal and historical portrait of a country I have always viewed critically but affectionately, and to which I bear immense gratitude.””

Unlike most ‘visiting’ image makers of Africa, the Dyball’s knowledge and connection to the land is apparent through their unique and unrepeatable images.”

Joseph Rodriguez @ BRONX DOCUMENTARY CENTER


Joseph Rodriguez – Spanish Harlem: El Barrio in the ’80s
November 11 – December 23, 2017

“Shot in the mid-to-late 80s, Joseph Rodriguez’s photographs of East Harlem capture the core of the neighborhood, a spirit of a people that survives despite the ravages of poverty, and more recently, the threat of gentrification and displacement. In a now-distant landscape littered with abandoned buildings, ominous alleyways, and the plague of addiction, the residents of Spanish Harlem persevered with flamboyant style and gritty self-reliance.”

The book Spanish Harlem: El Barrio in the ’80s by Joseph Rodriguez (powerHouse books) will be released in November 2017. More information here.

Vanessa Filley @ Perspective Gallery


Vanessa Filley: A Nursery Rhyme for You
November 2 – 26

Opening Reception: November 4 | 5 – 7 PM

“Photographer Vanessa Filley creates a love letter to mothers and childhood with her carefully constructed images. Her work speaks to the power of a mother to shape a child’s understanding and experience of the world and the love that lies within that relationship. Her images are inspired by a longing to bring the world of childhood imagination into being, to capture some of the enchantment from stories that begin once upon a time, but do not necessarily end happily.”
