CONTACT! is a show dedicated to prints made by placing negatives directly on a paper positive to create stunning, high resolution images using both legacy 19th century methods such as Salt, Platinum/Palladium, Van Dyke and Cyanotype and modern methods using silver gelatin, some from digital negatives. The photographers are using both in-camera negatives and "digital" negatives printed on digital printers from their digital captures. There are more than 60 prints in the show. Where else can you see fine, local and regional photographers display handmade work that has taken a year to produce in one place? Please join us to meet the artists, friends, and see some unusual, fine work.

Photographs tell a story, whether it is landscape, documentary, portrait, street or abstract. The story can be explicit or an enthralling visual experience that defies easy categorization. Sometimes, the more abstract evokes the viewer to construct their own personal narrative. The theme welcomes your interpretation and expression of an untold story. Our display will include 15 photographs, eight horizontal and seven vertical.

Opening Reception:  Sunday, January 27, 2019 from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.  (Snow date will be Sunday, February 3, 2018 from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)

Lotte Jacobi's portrait of Albert Einstein      May Sarton in a portrait by Lotte Jacobi


Lotte Jacobi's America: Images of Her Adopted Land


University of New Hampshire Library
18 Library Way, Durham, NH 03824     (603) 862-1535          www.library.unh.edu/museum

Exhibit located on level one in the Dimond Library

Celebrate the photography of Lotte Jacobi with us, with an exhibit of more than 50 of her images. This special exhibition, entitled Lotte Jacobi’s America: Images of her Adopted Land, is guest curated by New Hampshire Artist Laureate, Gary Samson, Emeritus Professor of Photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and longtime friend and protégé of Jacobi.

Drawn from the University’s extensive Jacobi archive, the exhibit features photographs taken by Jacobi after she left Germany and emigrated to America in 1935. Jacobi continued her craft in exile, first in New York, with her portraiture, cityscapes, and abstract photogenics over a period of twenty years. After making portraits of the nation’s creative and intellectual giants including Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, Theodore Dreiser, Eleanor Roosevelt, Marc Chagall and J.D. Salinger, she moved to New Hampshire in the mid 50s, where her photographs often captured rural life; nevertheless, she continued to make portraits of creative luminaries such as Robert Frost, Edward Steichen, May Sarton, and Minor White, among others.

Samson recognizes that a retrospective exhibit of Lotte Jacobi’s archive at UNH is long overdue. As guest curator, he aims to make this one different by focusing on her post emigration photography, adding that “it will be great to share her particular vision of America through rarely seen images of the leading intellectuals, writers, artists, and performers of the 20th century that she engaged and photographed in her own distinctive approach to photographic portraiture.”

Exhibit - Permanent Installment In Portsmouth, NH

    

'New Permanent Group Show Features Beautiful Large Prints of Work by Harry Licthman, Jerry Monkman, and David J. Murray'


155 Borthwick Ave

Portsmouth NH 03801

Contact David J. Murray www.ClearEyePhoto.com

The first floor public hallways of 155 Borthwick Ave in Portsmouth NH are now adorned with ~35 large art prints by area photographers Harry Licthman, Jerry Monkman, and David J. Murray. Building owner Michael Kane says his goal in displaying the work is to provide the many visitors who come to the medically-oriented building for dialysis, chemo infusions, and other medical treatments with a bit of beauty and distraction. The show was curated for Kane by Mary Jo Brown of Brown & Company in Portsmouth, NH, and a large information sign provides artist head shots, bios, and contact info.

NHIA members may find this installation interesting not only for the work itself, and for the evidence it provides that local companies are willing to devote significant dollars to purchasing and promoting the work of local artists, but also for the quality and medium of the prints themselves. Instead of having each photographer produce their own framed prints for hanging, The Kane Company licensed rights from each photographer to have all of the prints produced by a New York firm that specializes in large format high quality acrylic prints for corporate installations, and paid directly for all of the prints to be produced. The results are quite striking. Most of the pieces are at least 60" wide, and the largest is an 88" panorama. The acrylic treatment and large size combine to make these images really pop, while the uniform treatment lends a nice coherence to the show as a whole. You might enjoy checking them out, to see if this type of treatment would be of interest for your own work too.

“Ansel Adams in Our Time” 


Museum Of Fine Arts (MFA)

Ann and Graham Gund Gallery (Gallery LG31)

Avenue of the Arts

465 Huntington Avenue

Boston, MA 02115     617-267-9300    www.mfa.org Ansel Adams In Out Time

“Ansel Adams in Our Time” traces the iconic visual legacy of Ansel Adams (1902–1984), presenting some of his most celebrated prints, from a symphonic view of snow-dusted peaks in The Tetons and Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming (1942) to an aerial shot of a knotted roadway in Freeway Interchange, Los Angeles (1967). The exhibition looks both backward and forward in time: his black-and-white photographs are displayed alongside prints by several of the 19th-century government survey photographers who greatly influenced Adams, as well as work by contemporary artists whose modern-day concerns centered on the environment, land rights, and the use and misuse of natural resources point directly to Adams’ legacy.

While crafting his own modernist vision, Adams was inspired by precursors in government survey and expedition photography such as Carleton Watkins (1829–1916), Eadweard Muybridge (1830–1904), Timothy O’Sullivan (1840-1882) and Frank Jay Haynes (1853–1921), who worked with large bulky cameras and glass-plate negatives and set off into the wilderness carrying their equipment on mules. In some cases, Adams replicated their exact views of the Yosemite Valley, Canyon de Chelly, and Yellowstone, producing images that would become emblematic of the country’s national parks. In Clearing Winter Storm, Yosemite National Park (about 1937), the granite crags of the Yosemite Valley are wreathed in clouds after a sudden storm. Executed with unrivaled sensitivity and rigorous exactitude, the artist’s photographs popularized the notion that the American West was a pristine, and largely uninhabited, wilderness.

“Ansel Adams in Our Time” also brings Adams forward in time, juxtaposing his work with that of contemporary artists such as Mark Klett (born 1962), Trevor Paglen (born 1974), Catherine Opie (born 1961), Abelardo Morell (born 1948), Victoria Sambunaris (born 1964), and Binh Danh (born 1977). The more than 20 present-day photographers in the exhibition have not only been drawn to some of the same locations, but also engaged with many of the themes central to Adams’ legacy: desert and wilderness spaces, Native Americans and the Southwest, and broader issues affecting the environment: logging, mining, drought and fire, booms and busts, development, and urban sprawl.

Adams’ stunning images were last on view at the MFA in a major exhibition in 2005; this new, even larger presentation places his work in the context of the 21st century, with all that implies about the role photography has played—and continues to play—in our changing perceptions of the land. The Adams photographs in the exhibition are drawn from the Lane Collection, one of the largest and most significant gifts in MFA history.

Every photograph tells a story. When part of a body of work, the photograph takes on new meaning, becoming part of a bigger and more complete narrative. A portfolio allows the photographer to explore the complexities of their subject, and provide context that gives it richness and meaning that is more than the sum of its parts.

Imagined Communities: Photographs by Mila Teshaieva

MIT Museum

MIT Museum

Building N51

265 Massachusetts  Avenue

Cambridge - 02139 MA     (617) 253-5927  www.mitMuseum.mit.edu Photographs by Mila Teshaieva

Imagined Communities, a retrospective of photographer Mila Teshaieva's multi-year work on constructed identities, is drawn from three recent projects in which she interrogates the idea of nation as an "imagined community" and a political construct that is often in conflict with private and public memory. The striking photographs are especially relevant in a time when many countries are embroiled politically and culturally in refugee crises, immigration policy protest and debate, issues of national identity, and resurgent nationalism.

This is the first monographic exhibition in the U.S. and the first solo exhibition in Boston for Teshaieva (b. Ukraine, 1974). Accompanying the photographs are first person accounts of the events, situations, and subjects depicted, as well as commentary by the photographer and the curator of the exhibition.

ARTIST TOUR

Nov. 4, 2:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Nov. 6, 2:00 - 2:30 p.m.

Meet photographer Mila Teshaieva and enjoy a small group tour of Imagined Communities. Limited tickets available at 1:30 p.m. on day of event for Museum visitors of age 12+ on a first-come, first-served basis.

'Shadows and Traces: The Photography of John Reuter'

The Griffin Museum of Photography

67 Shore Road 
Winchester, Ma 01890 United States      (781) 729-1158  www.griffinmuseum.org   


John Reuter was born in Chicago and raised in California and New York.  He attended undergraduate school at SUNY Geneseo and graduate school at the University of Iowa, receiving an MFA in 1978.  By the end of 1978 he had taken a position at Polaroid as a research photographer and in 1980 moved over to be the main photographer in the 20×24 Studio.  From 1980 and through the 1990s the 20×24 program became the cornerstone of the Polaroid Artist Support Program.  The New York studio was a key part of that program and Reuter worked with artists William Wegman, Joyce Tenneson, Chuck Close, Mary Ellen Mark, David Levinthal, Robert Rauschenberg, Ellen Carey and many others.


Throughout those years Reuter strove to continue his own artistic pursuits despite the full time schedule of the studio.  The SX-70 work, which deconstructed the film packet to introduce painted and collage elements was the first major body of work he created with Polaroid materials.  Rendered obsolete by technical changes to the SX-70 film this work remains a favorite of the artist.  Seeking a new format Reuter began working with Polacolor II peel-apart film in 1981 to create images with the “image transfer process”.  This process allowed the dyes from the film negative to be printed on watercolor paper in lieu of the shiny and sharp Polacolor positive.  This became a starting point for a reworking process that enhanced or transformed the image with materials such as retouching dyes, watercolor, pastel and dry pigment.  Scale could now be part of the process as Reuter employed 8×10, 20×24 and multiple 20×24 panels to create works up to 40×50 inches.


By the late 90s Reuter began the transition to digital imaging and no longer made the final prints with Polaroid materials.  He continued to run the 20×24 camera for other artists as it remained part of the soon to be bankrupt Polaroid Corporation.  By 2008 he was able to work with Elsa Dorfman and her investor friend Dan Stern to purchase a significant amount of the 20×24 film inventory, camera and production equipment.   The camera and original Polaroid film remain viable and are still available for artists and photographers to use.

Larry Fink, First Communion, Bronx, NY, 1961, from the series "Making Out 1957-1  

'Larry Fink: Primal Empathy'


DECORDOVA Sculpture Park and Museum

Dewey Family Gallery 

51 Sandy Pond Road

Lincoln, MA 01773-2600   (617) 259-8355   www.decordova.org Larry Fink: Primal Empathy

Photographer Larry Fink (b. 1941) creates intimate, nuanced images of human interaction. Caught in the light of his camera’s flash, his subjects are absorbed in sensual connection, unspoken familiarity, and comic revelry. Drawn from deCordova’s permanent collection with loans from the artist, this exhibition focuses on empathy in Fink’s work. Whether photographing members of elite urban society or rural farmers, empathy drives his curiosity about our shared humanity and shapes his decisions for lighting, framing, and positioning his subjects.

Fink states that “empathy isn't necessarily only about goodness or about, ‘Oh, I empathize with you’ as in sorrow, or something sentimental. Empathy, in my way of thinking about it, is more primal: it's an animality informed by complex consciousness. It could involve any emotion." This exhibition explores Fink’s critical compassion across projects that span his extensive career, including his best-known project Social Graces, his surprisingly tender images of boxers, and close studies of flora and fauna around his Pennsylvania farm. Also on view is a selection of rarely seen photographs of public protests, past and present. Shown together, these works affirm Fink’s lifelong quest for direct and personally felt experiences with those around him.

Shifting Boundaries,” a solo exhibition of photographic works by Aimée Margolis'


Temple Israel Art Gallery

200 State St., Portsmouth, 03801

Contact: TEMPLEOFFICE@TEMPLEISRAELNJ.ORG


The ideas behind Margolis’ spiritually atmospheric photography are inspired by examining youth and how they transform through their spiritual beliefs, values and attitudes as they take steps toward being adults.


Growing up in North Hampton, Margolis says she was conditioned to hold back her true feelings in a society where spoken and unspoken protocols for women are still present. She has investigated with both humor and irony throughout her work the changes of growing up in a society that at once worships women and youth, but then will not listen to them. Her work encompasses “these new people, the great changes in their lives just being considered and thought of,” Margolis says. “Catching the expressions of a new path, full of trepidation, hope, in their demeanor, signaling a new Jewish threshold of shifting boundaries in a new world.” Her “Shifting Boundaries” photographic series reflects upon those difficult years in an attempt to apprehend other people’s possibilities and accept their ultimate path.

'A Way Of Life, A Way Of Seeing'


MFA Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Henry and Lois Foster Gallery (Gallery 158)

Avenue of the Arts

465 Huntington Avenue

Boston, MA 02110    (617) 267-9300  www.mfa.org Photographs of Graciela Iturbide 

The photographs of Graciela Iturbide not only bear witness to Mexican society but express an intense personal and poetic lyricism about her native country. One of the most influential photographers active in Latin America today, Iturbide captures everyday life and its cultures, rituals, and religions, while also raising questions about paradoxes and social injustice in Mexican society. Her photographs tell a visual story of Mexico since the late 1970s—a country in constant transition, defined by the coexistence of the historical and modern as a result of the culture’s rich amalgamation of cultures. For Iturbide, photography is a way of life and a way of seeing and understanding Mexico and its beauty, challenges, and contradictions.

This is the first major East Coast presentation of Iturbide’s work, featuring approximately 125 photographs that span her five-decade-long career. Organized into nine sections, the exhibition opens with early photographs, followed by three series focused on three of Mexico’s many indigenous cultures: Juchitáncaptures the essential role of women in Zapotec culture; Los que viven en la arena (Those Who Live in the Sand) concentrates on the Seri people living in the Sonoran Desert; and La Mixteca documents elaborate goat-slaughtering rituals in Oaxaca, serving as critical commentary on the exploitation of workers. Thematic groupings highlight Iturbide’s explorations of various aspects of Mexican culture, including fiestas, death and mortality, and birds and their symbolism. Her more recent work is presented in two series related to Mexico’s cultural and artistic heritage, featuring plants—mainly cacti—in “intensive care” at the Oaxaca Ethnobotanical Gardens, as well as El baño de Frida (Frida’s Bathroom), depicting personal belongings in Frida Kahlo’s bathroom at the Casa Azul that had been locked away for 50 years after the artist’s death.

Iturbide’s powerful and provocative photographs are anti-picturesque, anti-folkloric. Her work embodies her empathetic approach to photography and her deep connection with her subjects, asking questions through its capacity for imaginary associations. Drawn primarily from Iturbide’s own collection, “Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico” also includes the Museum’s recent acquisition of 37 works by the artist, as well as loans from museums and private collections throughout the US and Mexico. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue produced by MFA Publications.

Richard Avedon: Portraits, 1952-1970 at the Portland Museum of Art


Portland Museum of Fine Art

7 Congress Square

Portland, Maine 04101      (207) 775-6148     www.portlandmuseum.org


This exhibition showcases 12 photographic portraits and three triptychs of celebrated individuals by the iconic American photographer Richard Avedon (1923-2004). Primarily a fashion photographer whose images played an influential role in defining America’s image of style, beauty, and culture, these portraits suggest his disillusionment with commercial work and his quest to portray the likeness of the sitter.

Published on the occasion the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s seminal 1970 exhibition on the artist, the Minneapolis Portfolio highlights a stylistic shift in Avedon’s practice. Here, the photographer employed an 8 x 10 view camera and shot his subjects on a flat, white background instead of his traditional grey. Stepping out from behind the camera, Avedon also began interacting with his sitters. In the Minneapolis Portfolio, Avedon’s intimate portraits feature actor Humphrey Bogart and actress Marilyn Monroe, comedians Jimmy Durante and Buster Keaton, poets Ezra Pound and Marianne Moore, as well as President Dwight David Eisenhower and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, among others. Recognizable yet foreign, the close-up portraits obscure identities and public personas, casting the subjects anew.

Otto Steinert's photograph, Luminogramm (Light Drawing)

'Postwar Visions European Photography, 1945–60'


MFA Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Herb Ritts Gallery (Gallery 169)

Avenue of the Arts

465 Huntington Avenue

Boston, MA 02110    (617) 267-9300  www.mfa.org/exhibitions/postwar-visions

Reviving Bauhaus abstraction after World War II

“Postwar Visions” looks at the work of European photographers who, after hostilities ended in 1945, chose to use their cameras to express their creative impulses. Some of these artists returned to Bauhaus ideas about art making that had been interrupted by the political repression of the 1930s and six long years of war. An influential center of this new work was located in Germany, where Otto Steinert, a medical doctor turned photographer, organized a group of artists who used the camera to explore the inner self through abstract imagery. They found intriguing patterns in nature and in the built environment, and they also took inspiration from mundane visual details of daily life. In the 1950s, Steinert organized a number of exhibitions titled Subjektive Fotografie (Subjective Photography), bringing international attention to their approach and inspiring photographers around the world to explore elements of abstraction in their work.

“Postwar Visions: European Photography, 1945–60” investigates this rise of mid-century creativity in an assemblage of approximately 35 works. Steinert’s Luminogramm (1952), made by the light of a flashlight, captures the playful spirit of the movement. Other images in the exhibition are meditative observations of daily life, such as rain droplets streaming down a windowpane, a bicyclist gliding down a winding road, the gentle curves of a nude. The exhibition is organized into four sections—pure abstractions, still life, daily life, and industrial subjects—and also features the work of Peter Keetman, Toni Schneiders, Mario Giacomelli, Nino Migliore, Sabine Weiss, Jean-Pierre Sudre, and more. The photographs are drawn primarily from the MFA’s collection, with a number of significant loans from private collections. “Postwar Visions” is a companion exhibition to “Radical Geometries: Bauhaus Prints, 1919–33,” which explores abstraction in European graphic art during the interwar period.

In its heyday, Polaroid and its products were loved by millions of amateurs and embraced by countless professionals. ThePolaroidProject tells the fascinating and instructive story of the Polaroid company, and presents all aspects of Polaroid photography, including the technology that made it possible. Fittingly, after traveling around the world, this critically acclaimed exhibition will make its final stop at the MIT Museum, approximately a block from where instant film was first invented.

This unique exhibition explores various dimensions of the art-technology relationship through the exhibition of both art and artifacts. There will be over two hundred photographs by 120 artists, including Ansel Adams, Chuck Close, Barbara Crane, Harold Edgerton, Walker Evans, Hans Hansen, David Hockney, Dennis Hopper, Robert Mapplethorpe, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and William Wegman.  The exhibition also showcases more than 75 artifacts--including cameras, prototypes, experimental films and other technical materials--from the MIT Museum’s own collection of historical Polaroid artifacts.


Accompanying the exhibition is ThePolaroidProject: At the Intersection of Art and Technology, a richly designed catalog with over 300 illustrations.
