Stephen Shames: Bronx Boys @ Steven Kasher Gallery

OneStephen Shames: Bronx Boys
November 6-15, 20014

Opening reception with Steven Shames and some of the Bronx boys on November 6 from 6-8pm.

A 1977 assignment for Look magazine took award-winning photographer Stephen Shames to the Bronx, where he began photographing a group of boys coming of age in what was at the time one of the toughest and poorest neighborhoods in the United States. The Bronx boys lived on streets ravaged by poverty, drugs, violence, and gangs. They bonded together and raised themselves in “crews,” adolescent families they created for protection and companionship. Shames’s empathy for the boys earned their trust and respect, and over the next two decades, as the crack cocaine epidemic devastated the neighborhood, they allowed him extraordinary access into their lives on the street and in their homes.

ABOUT FACE:
The Portrait in Contemporary Photography
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 6pm–9pm

While the portrait is–on the surface–the central theme of the exhibition, it has been curated with a view to showing artworks that are highly mediated by the photographer, and demonstrate how a human subject is utilized, in putting forward a point of view about a larger concept.

Sebastião Salgado: Genesis
SEPTEMBER 19–JANUARY 11, 2015

Genesis is the third long-term series on global issues by world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado (born Brazil, 1944), following Workers (1993) and Migrations (2000). The result of an eight-year worldwide survey, the exhibition draws together more than 200 spectacular black-and-white photographs of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, and indigenous peoples—raising public awareness about the pressing issues of environment and climate change. ICP is proud to be the first U.S. venue of this momentous exhibition, which is curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado.
