The work of six Argentinian photographers trace the history of the nation's photography to its roots. The modern emergence of Argentinian photography came with the arrival of European artists. Foundations were formed and progress began to be steadily marked between 1930 - 1950's. This exhibition brings the work of six pioneering Argentinian photographers together in a 42 print exhibition.

Works by Annemarie Heinrich (Germany, 1912 – Argentina, 2005), Grete Stern (Germany 1904 - Argentina, 1999), Horacio Coppola (Argentina, 1906), Anatole Saderman (Russia, 1904 - Argentina, 1993), Juan Di Sandro (Italy, 1898 - Argentina, 1988), and Sameer Makarius (Egypt, 1924-Argentina, 2009) included. The diversity of the artists who would call Argentina home was far reaching, their visual styles equally varied, and contributions impactful on future developments on the media within the country.

The work of Annemarie Heinrich is theatrical, cinemagraphic, and reminiscent of the elegance of the entertainment industry. Multiple exposures are playful, surreal, and dramatic. Known for their work and impact on the local photography and photo montage is the artistic duo Horacio Coppola and Grete Stern. Anatole Saderman's botanical studies are calculated examinations of the natural world- work of this period was included in a text Wonders of Our Indigenous Plants. The direct approaches of Juan Di Sandro, photojournalistic, and Sameer Makaris "subjective documentalism, round out the show. Together this cross section of Argentinian innovators allow us to look back at the influences that founded modern Argentinian photography.

Traditionally known for her black and white documentary approach to the cultural landscape this exhibition will showcase Judith Joy Ross' her first foray into color photography. Iconic shots of school children, Vietnam and Gulf War veterans, protestors, and war memorial mourners are cornerstones of Joy Ross's work.

This new exploration is a shift, and not only in media. The sensibility, ease, and compassion remain but these images dig deep into the very natural relationship between humans, animals, and the environment. Images from wildlife rehabilitation centers, zoos, farms, and libraries come images ranging from intimate to unsettling. In Reading to dogs, Bethlehem Area Public Library, Bethlehem, PA, 2011 we see the power of animals in human experience and expression where children develop confidence and reading skills by reading to therapy dogs and handlers. In other works man is shown in the controversial act of hydrofracking for natural gas, and we feel critical of our intrusion into nature. Powerful and profound reflections are offered through the new work on man's relationship and impact on the global environment.

Celebrated for his rich color and dynamic compositions from around the world Alex Webb has gone from pioneer to master of American color photography. The Suffering of Light at the Stephen Bulger Gallery in conjunction with APERTURE will offer perspective on the 30 year career of the Artist with exhibition and accompanying monograph that draws from the artists most iconic images. Featured works include shots of a man fleeing flames and destruction in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; a young couple in a doorway with shadows of a man and daughter in the background in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico; bustling street and humorous eye shades in Bombay, India and more. What is so resonant about the work is each frame's ability to show and tell, to engage on many levels, to reward continued looking. The surface is always enticing, but the longer we linger the more we see. Webb takes us to the places he has been, invites us in, and allows us to stay.

Bold, memorable, and rythmic Webb's work spans the gamut of photographic genre- from the grit of street photography to the sharp poignent nature of photojournalism and the sophisticated refined "fine" art; to Webb it "all is photography." For a media so multiple, photography, Webb has conquered each genre with refined vision. Humor and humanity, balance and tension- the true essence of place, moment, and time is found honestly in each frame.

Soft and dreamlike is the work of Deborah Turbeville. Fine architecture, antique furniture, and luxurious clothing work to infuse the scenes with an aire of elegance; the emptiness and disarray of spaces counteracts our first impression adding tension and with it an air of mystery to each the image. There is a strange untold intimacy to the scenes. Figures appear connected and disconnected, and each moment captured by Turbeville balances delicately between fantasy and memory. In images with multiple figures the women seem intimately connected and yet it is as if each figure stands completely alone. This detachment can at times be unsettling, but does inspire us to engage the image further with desire to discover the narrative thread.

The images included in exhibition range in date from 1977 - 2011. It was in 1970 that Turbeville's work debuted in Vogue and she has since achieved great notoriety within the landscape of contemporary photography. Her experience in the fashion industry is multi-layered: Turbeville began as a model, became fashion editor, and eventually photographer. One can only imagine her insider experience provides unique vantage and perspective from which to create.

The exhibition at Staley-Wise is held in tandem with release of Turbeville's The Fashion Pictures published by Rizzoli.

Calm, quiet, reflexive are the seascapes of Hiroshi Sugimoto. The balance between sky and water is perfect and seductive. The subtle changes on the water's surface and clarity of the sky become the defining touch from one image to another. A minimalist's dream these silver prints invite meditation on subtle changes from frame to frame. Emotion even personality emerges without effort from the serial work for which Sugimoto is noted.
