Photogravures of Joséphine Sacabo are full of haunting elegance and alluring mystery. They stir our curiosity and allow narratives to cultivate. The series, Óyeme Con Los Ojos (Hear me with Your Eyes) is inspired by the life and work of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a 17th century Mexican nun. Even from within her cloistered cell Inés de la Cruz held the greatest salon of her day and remains among the Americas' greatest poets and intellectuals. Works from other two other series also appear in the exhibition including pieces from Noche Oscura (Dark Night) and Water & Dreams.

The work of Joséphine Sacabo has exhibited internationally and is included in The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, la Bibliothèque Nationale, The Boston Museum of Fine Arts and other museum and private collections.

Review: Alex Webb at Stephen Daiter Gallery

The Suffering of Light

Through October 29, 2011

Celebrated photojournalist since 1974 and Magnum Photographic Collective member since 1976, Alex Webb is a heavy hitter. Educated in literature and history at Harvard and photography at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts his sensibility goes beyond the image, and so do we.

The works are embedded with layers of narrative and an absolute connectedness to each moment. Image becomes experience and we are transported, elevated from our world and dropped into each depicted frame. We stand before the pieces as insiders not outsiders. Often we are brought to the developing world and allowed to engage situations we could or at times would not want to find ourself. While the work may have set out to be photojournalistic view or documentary record, they connect and transcend to art with powerful perspective.

Artist Reception & Book Signing: Simpson Kalisher at Keith de Lellis Gallery

Photographs from Kalisher's Latest Book:
The Alienated Photographer

Reception & Signing
Thursday, September 22
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: September 23 - November 5, 2011

Simpson Kalisher comes from a generation strong in street photography. Cut form the same cloth as artists like Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winograd, and Robert Frank, Simpson Kalisher turned his lens onto the world around him. To make a living he courted photojournalism, which he found often to be half imagined soap opera, and advertisement, which mimicked but at least did not purport to be true. His passion and purpose was capturing real found moments.

In his own time he wandered the streets of New York, as he says,"in search of meaning," and found moments of true translation. The works speak without words, have immediacy, and yet maintain a defined space between photographer and subject, viewer and image- a sense of alienation. In the American climate of the 1950's and 1960's divisions did exist- racial, social, economic, political lines in the sand were being drawn and redrawn. The images capture the sentiment and the personages of the time and for this have a familiarity about them. Perhaps we are experiencing an image for the first time, yet we have a moment of recognition with every work. Their truth and power comes from their immediate communicability. We know the time, the people, the social narrative, and we are transported through each frame to a moment. Each piece belongs so definitively to our collective fabric that we know it.

Gloria Richards, collector and supporter of Kalisher's work recently gifted 100 images to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Keith de Lellis exhibition features 59 of those images.

Celebratory Exhibition with Artists at Esther Woerdehoff Gallery

Carte Blanche à Elene Usdi

Exhibition debuts September 15 - 30, 2011 at Ester Woerdehoff Gallery
Artists' Reception September 17
3:00 - 8:00 pm

Exhibition continues October 3 - December 15 at l'Hôtel La Belle Juliette

Winner of this year's Photo d'Hôtel, Photo d'Auteur, now in its fifth year, went to Elene Usdi. Usdi graduated from the l'Écoledes Arts Décoratifs de Paris en 1996 and turned little by little towards photography in the early 2000's engaging in a series of self portraits. To better understand her environments she disguised herself seeking personalities that emerged from the spaces around her. This approach to working was put to work with great affect and this year won her the Photo d'Hôtel, Photo d'Auteur first prize.

Each month of the past year young artists were invited to spend an evening in one of the Hôtels Paris Rive Gauche to create a unique work inspired by their visit. Artists are granted access to guest rooms and halls for one month to execute works that will become their submission. The range of images is stunning, each voice comes through clear and strong and all are worthy of attention.

With notable judges like Guillaume Morel, connaissance des arts; Marc Pussemier from La Librairie photographique; Paul-Louis Roubert from la Société Française de Photographie; and Esther Woerdehoff, Galelrist, the honor of being chosen is of high compliment.

Artists' Reception: Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb at Robert Klein Gallery

Violet Isle
A couple's "two looks" at Cuba and Mexico

Opening Reception with the Artists:
September 17
2:00 - 4:00 pm

Exhibition through October 22, 2011

The couple uses the term "two looks" to describe the litteral duality to their visual approach, their photographic philosophy. Both seem to gravitate to unusual, even unlikely spaces of dynamic composition and strange balance; the work of each compliments the other. The light and color in the work of the duo is rich and the compositions revealing of an every day that is not ideal, it is real.

Alex Webb, Havana, Cuba, 2007, Courtesy of Klein Gallery
Alex is drawn to spaces of habited isolation and the strange moments that occur in locations shared by immigrants, transients, and children at play. The frames are felt, hollow at times yet never void. Children become playful characters seeming to sneak in and out of the frames before our eyes. If we listen, we may hear the echo of their footsteps.

Rebecca Norris Webb, Havana, Cuba, 2008, Courtesy
of Klein Gallery
Rebecca too snaps curious frames. Often the sense of inside and outside emerges with distinction. Embodied with poetics, she captures intersections between man and the natural world. Often the natural, or the animal is the predominant subject, yet the human force is ever present, especially in images that show caged or captive animals.
