RYO MINEMIZU: JEWELS IN THE NIGHT SEA

CANON GALLERY GINZA TOKYO / August 20-29, 2018

“Minemizu captures in meticulous detail the beauty and complexity of plankton that float and drift in our planet’s oceans and other bodies of water unable to swim against the current. Apart from bacteria, these plants, animals, and other types of organisms (measuring mainly 2mm to 40 mm) are the most abundant life form on earth and play a critical role in the marine food chain. These surprisingly sturdy creatures for their size are equipped by nature with survival mechanisms that enable them to change their form to protect themselves from prey.”

Book Review: Mind the Gap by Joshua Lutz

Mind the Gap points to the physical, mental and psychological gap we are confronted with in our daily lives. It is a reference to the gap between thoughts as well as the gap between coherence and confusion. Caught between thinking something is one thing and the reality of what it is, Mind the Gap functions as a reminder of the effort needed to let go of the stories we tell ourselves and rest for a brief moment in the space between thoughts.

The text interspersed with Lutz’s photographs is a hint at the narrative running through the mind of the protagonist. It is up to the reader to make the decision whether the book is ultimately narrative fiction, or the lucid writing of a person exploring or living within varying states of suffering, feelings of depression, despondency, or paranoia issues. We are left to sort out the balance between photographs depicting assumed truths, and narrative that creates an arc of personal emotions.

There are these two worlds vying for my attention at all times. In one of them this diagnosis has metastasized to the brain and I am no longer able to care for my children. The bank takes over the house and I become an albatross in hands not fully formed. In the other world, noise shuts down for a very split second and the smallest fragment of light becomes a pathway to immortality. Colour is no longer a placeholder and language is no longer a tool. You can read this as small moments of clarity or large chunks of confusion. Either way, they mix with the noise and become gaps I long to possess. – Joshua Lutz

The book drew me in, I was struck by a sense of confusion and intrigue and I found myself paging ahead to read another section of text (with titles such as ‘Voluntary Admission, Repeat After Me, and Occam’s Razor), then flipping backward or forward to make a visual connection between the images and the writing – searching for meaning much like the writer/author seems to beg the reader to empathize – As if to say, ‘Don’t you see? Why doesn’t anyone see how alone I am with these feelings? Now do you see?’

Both the images and text in Mind The Gap unravel a story of attempting to find some assemblage of truth in the chaos of hierarchy, class and privilege. It is a journey for clarity, hijacked by sex, addiction, and mental illness. As the reader travels from a black and white world of photographs into color, they are confronted with a space of groundlessness. The protagonists in the story are found clinging and grasping to everything they believe to be true.

An exhibition of the author’s work will be shown at ClampArt gallery. “Joshua Lutz: Mind the Gap” is the artist’s third solo show, which runs from July 26th to September 13th, 2018. There will be an artists reception on Thursday, September 13th from 6pm to 8pm. ClampArt is located at 247 West 29th Street Ground Floor, New York City.

Jungjin Lee: Opening
September 12 – November 10, 2018

“Traveling to Arizona, New Mexico, and Canada, Lee captured abstract expanses of desert and mountain. Robert Frank has described her images as “landscapes without the human beast.” Harnessing the power of visual silence, her photographs inspire a sense of the deep and quiet interaction between the beholder and the elements of the earth.”

The New Beginning for Italian Photography: 1945-1965 @ Howard Greenberg Gallery


The New Beginning for Italian Photography: 1945-1965
September 12 – November 10, 2018

“Associated with cinematic and literary depictions of postwar conditions, photography’s embrace of neorealism illuminated the here and now of a country emerging from ruins, alive with vitality and hope. With print media outlets on the rise, photographers and their reportage played an integral role in picturing the postwar period when 1945, later termed “year zero,” was time for a new beginning. In graphic compositions that master line and shape, the images on view capture fleeting moments that become the seeds of longer imagined narratives. Humanist in nature, the beautifully printed images in the exhibition convey a concern with finding unusual stories in quotidian scenes. ”

Vladimir Stepanov: The Soul of Moscow Streets
July 18 – September 23

“His natural talent, fine taste and and a fresh look at the future of photography allowed Stepanov to capture the very moment in its singularity, the atmosphere, the details of everyday life and the feeling of that time. His works are unique relics of the city which no longer exists.
Young, inspired and madly in love with photography and Moscow, the artist roams its streets and boulevards, looks into its yards and captures real life.”

Feast for the Eyes- The Story of Food in Photography

“Feast for the Eyes shows the rich history of food photography – not only in the visual arts, but also in commercial and scientific photography and photojournalism. From the banality of the diner-breakfast special of Stephen Shore to the allegorical still life of Laura Letinsky, from Roger Fenton’s extensive nineteenth-century displays of food to the cookbooks of the sixties. The extensive exhibition, Feast for the Eyes, explores the most important figures and movements in food photography.”
