Known and unknown works by George Platt Lynes have been drawn out of the shadows and retrieved from They Kinsey Institute's cold storage to go on exhibition at Throckmorton Fine Art. The male nude was a favorite of Lynes, but much hidden over the years. Due to the social and political climate of his time many images were known only to a close circle of friends and some from the Kinsey Institute have never before been seen.

Lynes worked for the best of the best- Vogue, Town and Country, and Harper's Bazaar, but these male nudes are the crown jewel of his oeuvre. Though his life was cut short at 48 Lynes knew these pieces were his most important work. Lynes is celebrated for photographing dancers but one glance at these master works reveals this is the subject with wich he was most engaged. The beauty, majesty, and grace of the figures is unforgettable. The light and shadow so tempting as to be touched, the forms so elegant and smooth as to be desired, and the emotion so strong as to be felt from within.

Vintage works and unique originals from recovered negatives to be on view. Text produced in collaboration with the Lynes estate and the Kinsey Institute. Steven Haas, editor, to attend reception and sign copies of the text.

Review: Jeff Mermelstein at Wester Fine Art

On View through June 25, 2011

Candid, clever, and catchy, Jeff Mermelstein's work is featured for a second time by Wester Fine Art in an exhibition that focuses on the fashion industry. Originally made for New York Magazine the images in "A Photographer's Journey Through the World of Style" have a flavor all their own. While they function well as editorial and commercial works they hold up within the fine art category and it is in this light that they become most interesting.

Mermelstein's graphic and edgy street photography approach lends itself well to describing the culture of the fashion industry. Rather than runway haute couture we have a behind the scenes look at the staging, the designers, the models, and crew that facilitate events. We do not see what we expect- criticized or idealized fashion industry, rather a subject of study.

While a student at the Minneapolis School of Art and Design DeCosse bought a camera and transformed his coal celler into a darkroom. This began his long love affair with photography.

DeCosse is a craftsman of the highest quality and experiments with unusual even lost processes since becoming known as a bit of an alchemist. The variety of techniques mastered include platinum/palladium Prints, Gum Dichromate Prints, and Photogravures. Samples from all of these techniques will be exhibited in the Retrospective exhibition scheduled to run the length of the summer. Regardless of process the works have a luminous radiance, elegant composition, and a quality of detail that is so precise it is tactile. These qualities speak to DeCosse's philosophy- an image should be so desirable to look at as to make you approach to see something you hadn't before. The images are all inviting and do lure the viewer to take a second, closer, more intimate look.

The historic tradition of the still-life has shifted through time, from ancient drawings in Egyptian tombs for the after life to the long popular theme in western painting. The photograph of a still-life adds a new layer to this history. For Sameshima the photograph is precise, but the artist's intent is powerful influence.

Explore the theme of still-life, see the show and meet the artist.
