Thomas Roma: In the Vale of Cashmere
October 29th – December 19th, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 29th, 6:00-8:00 PM
With In the Vale of Cashmere, Roma brings us into a little known Eden, one that has been quietly thriving for decades. Roma’s portraits of men set in an uncanny urban wooded landscape carry a history of New York and Brooklyn that predates and parallels the gay rights and civil rights movements. Roma brings us into a secret world, giving us the opportunity to consider the individual with sensitivity and respect while also engaging in a larger discussion of race, gender, sexuality, and class in an increasingly gentrified New York.

CALLAHAN, DAWID, SUGIMOTO
October 29 – December 19, 2015
Opening reception: Thursday, October 29, 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Callahan, Dawid, Sugimoto examines black and white photography’s ability to seamlessly merge objective representation and formal abstraction with a selection of over 20 gelatin silver prints. Utilizing large format cameras to visually intensify their chosen subjects, these artists transcend narrative description and thus transform our vision, causing us to consider the motifs they photograph in different and novel ways. All distinctly geometric and precisely composed, Callahan’s, Dawid’s, and Sugimoto’s images present us with delicate interplays between light and dark tonalities, positive and negative space, surface and depth, rhythmic lines and visual rhymes.

Eamonn Farrell: Charles Haughey: Power, Politics & Public Image
29 October – November 22
Opening Reception: Thursday 29 October 6.30pm
This new exhibition of photographs by Eamonn Farrell examines the public image of Charles Haughey – the most controversial politician since the foundation of the state. With his Napoleonic manner, driving ambition and extravagant private life, Haughey remains a compelling and divisive figure in the Irish political landscape. As a Taoiseach, he was before his time in understanding the power of the image: he knew how to use photographers to his advantage, and made himself easily available to them. Eamonn Farrell has used this access to capture images that offer real insights into Haughey’s elevated perception of himself.

Giorgia Valli: Aves Mei
October 24th – December 19th 2015
Giorgia Valli found the backdrop for her series in an unlikely of place: the Bronx Zoo. The images were shot in the section of the zoo called “The World of Birds”. Each of the photos depicts a bird’s cage and in turn each image is meant to be associated with the different places Valli has lived around the world. For Valli, some locations felt like nests while others seemed like cages. Each place could influence her thought processes and ideas – some acting as agents of freedom and growth, while others hindered and weakened. This series is a way of expressing her experiences with repressed feelings and freedom, much like how the birds experience their cages.

Both Sides of Sunset
October 24th – December 19th 2015
‘Both Sides of Sunset’ is a visually attempted summation of the many facets that can be found within the sprawling city of Los Angeles. From Boyle Heights to Santa Monica beach, this show is inclusive of the various neighborhoods that give L.A. such depth and character. Affluent and impoverished, gritty and glamorous, staged and candid – views that scratch the surface of the beautiful soul that gives life to such a magnificent place that locals love and outsiders vie to be included in.

ALINE SMITHSON / PORTRAIT AS AUTOBIOGRAPHY
3 NOVEMBER – 31 DECEMBER 2015
Artist Reception – Friday November 6th, 6 – 8pm
Aline’s roots in traditional painting and portraiture is the background for her latest body of work, Revisiting Beauty. In the footsteps of classical portraiture, her images filled with vibrant rich color and the simple beauty of the young women sitting before her brings to mind Kusakabe Kimbei’s stunning hand painted portraits of young Japanese women. It is the connection to her subject that has Aline standing out from the often-overflowing world of portrait photographers.
We will show a selection of highlighted works from many of Alines’ portrait series. Arrangement in Green & Black (Portrait of the Photographer’s Mother), Revisiting Beauty and a selection of hand painted silver gelatin portraits.
