The duplicity of the self is exposed in the work of Kelli Connell. In her series, Double Life, she recreates scenes she has experienced or witnessed but uses the same model. In each work the sense of two personalities is striking and convincing. Slight variations in gesture, clothing, pose, poise reveal much about internal struggles that play out. The stage set, the curtain on how our external self negotiates the world begins to raise.

Connell's constructed realities do engage intimate relationships, identity and lifestyle choices. Sensitive topics for some are handled in a way that diffuses friction; the act of using the self to explore personal "rules" encourages viewers to think more freely but directly on the process of inner struggle and outward choice. Moments are often intimate, quiet, reflexive, adoring. Feeling more awareness of our own inner selves we leave the work enlightened and with the hope not to merge, but to draw the best qualities from our own inner duplicities and to hope for all to do the same.

Copies of Kelli Connell's book, Double Life, available at the gallery for signing.

Cut from different cloth and drawn from different era the work of these two photographers would seem to have little in common. Now on view at Staley-Wise Gallery is the work of these two masters of the genre.

George Hoyningen-Huene and Kurt Marcus brought in waves a natural sophistication to fashion photography through the 20th century. First was Hoyningen-Huene, who came from Russian stock and would by 1925 be the chief photographer for Vogue in France, then Kurt Marcus, an American, who would emerge on the scene in the late 1980's. The two men were captivated by feminine beauty, reduced it to its essence before the lens, and in doing so raised the bar on the industry of fashion photography. Take the time to appreciate their work together.

Review: Alejandro Chaskielberg at Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Updated: Thursday, January 2, 2014
DATE: July 26, 2011

Through July 29


Argentinian photographer Alejandro Chaskielberg makes his US debut at Milo Gallery with works that are both direct and fantastic. Chaskielberg has lived and worked in the ParanĂ¡ River Delta region in Argentina on and off for four years and has taken influence from the relationship between the people and their environment.

The large scale images are dynamic and edge on dream-like. The artist observes his subjects, fishermen, farmers, loggers, and hunters among them, at work in daylight, but returns to photograph them under the cover of night. Using strobes, flashlights, lanterns, even ambient moonlight to illuminate the scenes, the figures and landscape appear charged. Bursting with power, brawn, and bravery the workers are heroicized. The settings too appear supernatural. Training in cinematography has been an obvious and interesting influence on the photographic work of this promising artist.

Veteran photographer George S. Zimbel has highly refined his craft and sensibility. While working with widely recognized news sources, including The New York Times, Look, Redbook, Parents, and Architectural Forum among them Zimbel always found time to follow his own stories. One of his personal projects was a series that has been in progress for seven decades and remains timeless subject, childhood.

From clowns and characters to intimate family moments, even tense stand-offs; from strollers and street scenes to school settings Zimbel seems to have caught it all. What we realize as we spend time with these works is how skillfully the trained eye of Zimbel has selected his scenes, frames, moments. We do not see at these with the eye of an elder, rather with that of a child. We want to join the game, hide from our parents in protest, shrink from danger, make new friends, laugh. We do more than look at these works, we feel them.

Review: Ilit Azoulay at Meislin Gallery

Recent recipient of the 2011 Constantiner Photography Award, Ilit Azoulay's images engage concepts of deconstruction, reconstruction, salvage, and on a greater plane inspire reflection on modern life, even lifestyle.

The final product is the result of much work and many images- objects are collected and scanned before being reconfigured digitally against a white wall, which has also been photographed in many sections. The rigid structure of the process is important as it invests elements with a sense of modern archaeology. Collected objects are stripped of their function and tidied- chipped paint reapplied, oil cleaned, and so on before they are divided, categorized, named and finally recorded. The final works are playful and elegantly ordered collections. We find ourselves looking for lines between elements, for commonalities and differences among the fragments.
