The Edge of Night

“After sunset, I seek out interesting effects created by the lights and the darkening sky. Many of the places I photograph appear unremarkable in the daylight, but they attract my attention as the light shifts and the streets become deserted. The long exposures convey a sense of time and motion. There is a sense of stillness and quietness in these images which I find evocative and beautiful.”

Going to the Sun

” ‘Going to the Sun’ is the name of the road through Glacier National Park that traverses the Continental Divide. Perhaps it also describes my four-day trip there. It began with almost three days of fog, drizzle and pouring rain but ended with a spectacular single day of Montana sun plus sky!”

Blue Notes

“The idea for this project came to me in Bali when we drove up to a restaurant surrounded by tiny blue lights. In a kind of epiphany, I realized how much I was drawn to the color BLUE. These randomly-sighted objects defined, enhanced, illuminated or dominated by the color BLUE form a harmonious patchwork, with something of that slight edge the ‘blue note’ adds to music.”

JuXXtapositions, Coney Island

“I have been photographing Coney Island for nearly ten years now and, in going through my work recently, I culled photos in which, consciously or subconsciously, I captured juxtapositions of an adult nature. I call them JuXXtapositions. Humor is an important part of my life and I tend to view the world with a wink and a smile.”

Cemeteries-The Architecture of Remembrance

“Cemeteries have forever intrigued me. They are quiet, mysterious places revealed in light and shadow. The ancient Necropolis evolved as a city of the dead, apart from homes and cultural institutions of the living. Historically, religious custom and social status have been expressed in the size, style and decoration of each memorial. The form and context of each image attempts to provide the viewer with an opportunity to experience these places in different ways.”

The Vivitar Portraits

“The twelve portraits exhibited were chosen at random from a collection of fifty. The photographs were all taken using the same technique, Vivitar flash units. This school of lighting had a following in the 70’s and I was intrigued by it. Fifty portraits and $100 worth of equipment later, I realized that, technique aside, I was allowed a brief but intimate glimpse into the souls of my dear subjects. It was an experience of love, anger and fear.”

SUSAN BARNETT
NOT IN YOUR FACE

MATTHEW MILLER
JUDY’S INTERRUPTION
November 1st – December 7th, 2014

Susan Barnett’s love of t-shirts began in the Seventies when she was known for silk-screening t-shirts and posters to protest the Vietnam War. After an internship at The Cloisters, the medieval branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she was employed at the Perls Galleries, a historic gallery on Madison Avenue where she worked for fifteen years as Associate Director. She returned to the School of Visual Arts studying graphic design with Milton Glaser and Paul Davis while continuing to take pictures on the streets of New York City. “NOT IN YOUR FACE” was born by photographing in the streets with her Leica Camera “only to find I was oftentimes standing at a corner with those who chose to wear a message on their back willing to advertise their affiliations and likes and dislikes.”

If you drive enough in rural America you see it: Purple Mountains Majesty and Amber Waves of Grain marred by a disconcerting foreground: junked cars and old tires; rotting window frames and discarded toilets. In short: Trash. For Matthew Miller, it became personal when his father and he bought an old farmhouse in Idaho as a getaway. Matthew saw the background: the old farmhouse with the landscape of rolling hills and rivers, even views of the Tetons. “It is a gorgeous, stunning property.” For someone from the city, it exudes clean air, green surroundings, and open spaces – freedom. From a distance it’s almost spiritual. But for years now he has been seeing the foreground: trash. The property’s prior owner, Judy, was a hoarder. Other’s trash was her treasure. She needed and found a faraway place to stash her pile, far away from prying eyes. All except Matthew’s. “I see the manufactured world out of place. The familiar turned strange. For years now I’ve cleaned up after her: a maddening, never-ending task. It has made me question our concepts of consumption, of waste, and of sanitation. I took to my Leica Camera as the only way to reconcile the disconnect. Judy’s Interruption is my view of a hoarder’s impact on a natural landscape.”

Working the Border @ Carlisle Photography Festival

unnamed-2Working the Border
8th to the 15th November

‘Working the Border’ explores the geophysical & cartographic line that separates Scotland from England, and it borrows its title from a project by ae phor, a selection of which is exhibited in the waiting room on platform 4, accompanied by the soundwork ‘Border Fiddle Music’. This work was recently completed in the run up to the historical moment of the referendum, as was Jo Metson Scott’s set of works in the installation ‘The Borderland’, which views the border from the English side, whilst ‘Schengland’ and ‘The Debateable Land’ by Alan Knox speculate on issues around regional sovereignty and European federalism.

Daniel Shea @ Webber Gallery Space

unnamedDaniel Shea: Blisner
Exhibition runs until Friday 19th December

The Blisner projects provide an account of what happened in and what remains of a single Rust Belt town during the process of deindustrialisation. The first book, Blisner Ill., begins with an early history of the discovery of bituminous coal in Southern Illinois, and moves through the last century of mine disasters and factory closures, ending with the fallout of deindustrialisation. Blisner represents a narrative that is both distantly dystopic and familiar to discourses on American industry and Main Street. The Blisner that exists today provides the surface that renders these histories photographically possible.
