Review: Eye/Object at Daiter Gallery

Photographs from the Collection of Jonathan Williams

Through July 30, 2011


Photography critic, publisher, poet, essayist, and lecturer, Jonathan Williams was a substantive sole and works from his personal collection, now on view at Stephen Daiter Gallelry, reveal his sensibility.

Williams' Jargon Society Press, based out of North Carolina, brought cutting edge photography to the public eye in over 100 volumes from the 1950's to the present. Volumes pairing images by now recognized masters like Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Frederick Sommer and Clarence John Laughlin with edgy text from cross country sources Williams pushed the envelope and cultivated appreciation for the works and the artists he believed in. His critical eye was early to spot emerging talent: Art Sinsabaugh, Doris Ulmann, and Ralph Eugene Meatyard, among others who would go onto become classic examples of masters in American modernism.

The personal collection of this pioneering champion brings you back to the brink, to the moment when these works were cutting edge and allows you to retrace history. Each work is emotionally engaging, and the range impressive. From morbid and haunting to reflexive even humerus each piece invites if not demands thought. Truth be told much of the work reveals a cutting darkness in the collector but never without a trace of beauty.

First up is Jeff Milstein with his series Cuba on the Streets. Bright flashes of color vibrate through street scenes, store fronts, alleys, and on autos. Other images feature cluttered libraries, bedrooms that look like shrines, even sparse to near naked interiors.

Come back later this summer to meet the artist, Simone Lueck. Lueck's series, Cuba TV is an intimate look at interiors and the television culture of Cuba. The old boxes with faded screens are often second, or maybe third-hand imports but are never the less treated as sacred. Often adorned by flowering pots, family portraits, or jumbled with other utilitarian items the tv is central.

Review: Yelena Yemchuck at Gitterman Gallery

Timeless summer scenes

Yelena Yemchuck immigrated to the US at age 11 from the Ukraine and it is clear never forgot her childhood summers at Gidropark. We are surprised to learn the works are contemporary- Yemchuck returned to Gidropark to take these images between 2005-2008. There is a timeless quality to the black and white prints. The often direct look of the figures is immediate and captivating. We engage and are engaged at times by direct glance- a young boy in Gidropark (#34) gazes with a piercing eye and in Gidropark (#4) a woman provocatively poses. Weather child or adult, all enjoy a playful moment in the summer sun.

Review: Bryan Graf at Yancey Richardson

Field Recordings
Through July 15, 2011


Field Recordings is a layered look at the natural landscape of New Jersey's forests and wetlands. For the series Wildlife Analysis Graf combined strait shooting of black and white film with color film exposed to ambient light (no lens required). In the darkroom the two layers of film are combined. The direct and the ambient result in natural elements pushing and pulling through splashes of rich bold color. Painterly and hypnotizing are the resulting works.

[[5]]Impetus for the exhibition is Stein's new book, Coney Island 40 Years. While Stein has produced texts on the subject in the past it was in color. This new book will feature the famed New York hang-out in black and white. The gritty depiction promises an honest, true to life, and perhaps most importantly timeless view of Coney Island.

Some things change- the old Brooklyn Middle Class has made room for newcomers at The Rockways and Brighton Beach, but the Brooklyn flavor, the essence of Coney Island remains- the spectacle. For the last 40 years this has been the draw for Stein. From the epic Golden Era to deterioration of an icon and today's renaissance Stein has captured it all. An actor himself, he hangs on the curtains to watch and to capture the action of center stage.

Take a trip through time, join the reception, and get your own signed copy of Coney Island 40 Years.
