How to Keep a Secret, the Artistic Way

Posted By AIPAD, Tuesday, November 3, 2015

The pair of silver safes, slightly ajar, gleam against the gallery’s wall. Each contains an empty white envelope, in which the conceptual artist Sophie Calle will lock a willing couple’s innermost secrets. Calle outlines the terms of the work for sale on an engraved plaque installed between the safes: she’ll keep the code, the lovers will keep the safes and the secrets will hang there, just out of reach. And if one of the partners dies? If the couple decides to sell? In her exacting way, Calle has accounted for nearly every scenario. They’re detailed in the lengthy, very official contract that’s vital to “Secrets,” on view for the first time in the United States at Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco.

Paul M. Hertzmann, Inc. Issues E-Catalogue of Minor White Photographs

Posted By AIPAD, Monday, November 2, 2015

Fourteen photographs by one of America's most influential twentieth century photographers are included in this e-catalogue.  Many of the photographs offered have noteworthy provenances. Five prints are being sold on behalf of The Minor White Archive at Princeton University. Several prints were gifts from Minor White either to his students or to other photographers. To request a catalogue, please email susan@hertzmann.net


Minor White created a unique body of photographs, while readily acknowledging the photographers, writer and ideas that inspired him. Chief among these were Asian philosophy, religion and art - readily apparent in many of his photographs, hidden in others. His initial encounter with such Eastern practices came through the I Ching in 1953, followed two years later by his study of Zen Buddhism.

White made his earliest, fully realized photographs in Portland, Oregon, in 1938. His next significant body of work was produced in San Francisco, where he became the first full-time faculty member to teach photography at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) in 1946. He headed to upstate New York in 1953, taking on curatorial duties at the George Eastman House and teaching at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1965, appointed professor of photography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he made his final move to Boston. 

All photographs in this e-catalogue are copyrighted by The Minor White Archive, Trustees of Princeton University.

Arno Rafael Minkkinen's First Solo Exhibition in Chicago

Posted By AIPAD, Friday, October 30, 2015

In the age of selfies and doctored photographs, the work of Arno Rafael Minkkinen seems to be from another era. The seventy-year-old Finnish-American photographer has been making self-portraits for more than 40 years, and is more relevant today than ever, having been awarded a 2015 Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for his outstanding work. We are proud to present 7 8 9 0 1, Minkkinen's first ever, long overdue solo exhibition in Chicago.

55 Years a Paparazzi at Staley-Wise Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Thursday, October 29, 2015

Ron Galella brought paparazzi photography into the public eye and with it the celebrity culture we live with today. Galella showed the famous as they are without lighting, in their own clothes, often disheveled, and not too happy to be photographed. In the world of publicists and packaging, this reality check is refreshing.

Galella covered multiple beats from society at museum openings, nightlife in the disco era, movie stars on the run in airports and limousines, to the world of Warhol. He pursued them all from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to wasted rock stars without regard to their status in the world – they were all equal in his lens.
