Review: Martin Parr's "Parr-O-Rama" at Janet Borden

Posted By Administration, Thursday, January 22, 2009
Updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

This exhibition's title, "Parr-O-Rama," leads us to expect a celebration of the fun-house humor that is all some people know of the British photographer's work.


But while the show does feature large-scale closeups of a pink poodle, an English breakfast, and a plate of pig-shaped petits fours, it also gives a much wider view of his busy career. Although Parr has photographed all over the world, England remains the subject of his most affectionate and wickedly satirical work. Through Jan. 31.

Review: Victor Schrager at Edwynn Houk Gallery

Schrager's still-life photographs begin with ordinary objects (books, bottles, light bulbs, glycerine soap), then dissolve into dreamy geometric abstractions.


Floating in a space full of mist and reflections, blocks and bars of luscious, translucent color suggest Hans Hoffman on a spa vacation. But no matter how blissed-out and gorgeous, Schrager's arrangements never feel random or merely decorative.

Review: Louis Stettner at Bonni Benrubi Gallery

Posted By Administration, Sunday, January 18, 2009
Updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Stettner, who recently turned eighty-six, is primarily known for atmospheric, closely observed photographs of New York in the nineteen-fifties. His views of Paris, where he spent a good part of his career, are similarly moody.


The works gathered here range across decades, from 1949 to 2001, but because Stettner's focus is Paris at its most charming and familiar, they collectively evoke one timeless, idyllic moment.

This year's Show will be held from March 26-29 at the Park Avenue Armory. More than 70 of the world's leading fine art photography galleries will present a wide range of museum quality work including contemporary, modern and 19th century photographs as well as photo-based art, video and new media. The AIPAD Photography Show New York is the longest running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography.

"AXA Art is known for top-notch industry leadership in their field, and we are pleased and honored to be working with them," noted Stephen Bulger, President, AIPAD and President, Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto. "We believe AXA's goals and global relationships complement those of AIPAD galleries and photography collectors around the world and look forward to a dynamic and fulfilling partnership."

As a company that is as passionate about art as it is supportive of the art community, we embrace the opportunity to align with a premier organization in the art world to support The AIPAD Photography Show New York and help bring further focus to fine art photography."

AIPAD will collaborate with AXA Art on special events, panel discussions and other activities of interest to the art community during The AIPAD Photography Show New York and throughout the year.
