Pioneering force in fashion photography, Erwin Blumenfeld lead the way for future fashion greats, including Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Herb Ritts. All these photographers in their time infused art into fashion and have been remembered to Art History for their hybridization, their elevation of the commercial to the fine. The European style of Blumenfeld splashed the covers Vogue and Harper's Bazaar with undertones to Dada and Surrealism. The unique vision and experimental techniques put him on the map. The images included in the Houk Gallery exhibition are from a private collection and highlight the diversity of the artist's work. Though this is only a taste of what the photographer was capable of they do allow us the unique chance to view original prints full of dramatic elegance and sophistication.

The work of Burke Uzzle is iconic and many images are engrained into the visual history of America including images of Martin Luther King's funeral and flower children at Woodstock. This new work, Burnt came about as a result of a chance finding. Uzzle came across a burnt out and abandoned country store. Uzzle sifted through the remaining rubble to pull texts, dolls, and other remnants that had been abandoned for a decade. The salvaged objects were put before a large format camera and documented. The power and depth of these long forgotten objects is remarkable. Photographed with care we feel a tenderness emerge in ourself, a desire to enjoy and wonder at something so long lost. Our curiosity stirs at disintegrated pages, charred toys, and ashen trinkets. Objects take on greater meaning and we begin to associate time, history, and borad narratives to the frames.

Review: Sharon Core at Yancey Richardson Galelry

Lush, delicate, and painterly is the work of Sharon Core. Gazing on the series of floral still lives it is no surprise that Core studied painting earning a BFA from the University of Georgia before continuing onto earn her MFA in photography from Yale.

The series 1606-1907 engages, and at times seems to even go as far as to translate, representational painting and photography. The history of the floral still-life painting is directly referenced from the early Flemish painters to Modernists but the work pushes beyond reference effectively engaging the very essence of the subject itself, temporality. The surfaces are fluid, warm, brilliant and dramatic- some frames burst with color, life, and energy while others to cling to the last moments of lasting glory, or even wither on the stem. The drama of life is played out through the historical subject that emerges anew. This show is a must-see.

Ten Winnipeg born artists have been selected by Saul Gallery Artist Sarah Anne Johnson and Border Crossings Editor Meeka Walsh to be exhibited in the group show Out of Nowhere. The exhibition draws on artists of all media, including photography, painting, drawing, video, and collage. Many of the artists are young and up-in-coming but a handful of the group has shown abroad in France in both Paris and Sete. For almost all the exhibiting artists this will be their first exhibition in the United States.

What brings the work together, what creates a common bond amongst the 10 exhibiting artists is their connection to a place- Winnipeg. The city celebrates a history of creative energy that is almost legendary as home to the internationally acclaimed Royal Art Lodge collective, film maker Guy Maddin, painters Tim Gardner and Karel Funk, and photographer Laura Letinsky. It could be argued that the geography of the city fosters a united and individualistic sensibility in its inhabitants. Covered in winter by heavy snow Winnipeg is settled on what was once a prehistoric lake; each winter it is erased by snow as if swept clean for renewed emergence.

Two featured photographers are Steve Ackerman and elaine Stocki. Ackerman portrays the local landscape and rough personalities within his community and Stocki's platinum prints depict gymnasts in their own element.

Review: Kate Breakey at Etherton Gallery

Slow Light is the result of three decades of work made steadily and set aside. For 30 years Kate Breakey has been making images that follow her footsteps near and far, from her native Australia through Europe, Texas, and her home in Tucson. Images slowly accumulated in a box and sat, waiting for the right time to emerge, to come into being. The fleeting moments of natural beauty have been revealed in Slow Light. Elegant, soft, and inviting is each frame. Works appear precious and enticing; knowing they have been saved for this day seems to make them every more special, more fragile, more invested- footsteps in desert sands, sunlight piercing a cloud, an abandoned well being reclaimed slowly by shrubbery and soon to be forgotten all together, an old burnt stump waiting to be reabsorbed into the life cycle. Breakey admits she did not take the work as seriously as she now does. Markedly different from her other series this work took a lifetime to accumulate and represents not only reflections on the beauty of the natural world or the perfect instant caught, but also as acts as a visual diary of the artist's life and experience.

Additional works from other series also on view in the survey including Flowers, Still Life, Memories & Dreams, and Laws of Physics.
