REVIEW - The Fallen Fawn at Jackson Fine Art

Posted By AIPAD, Thursday, August 18, 2016
Updated: Monday, August 15, 2016

Two young girls find a suitcase in the woods. And like a Pandora’s box, that discovery opens up a sense of possibility, but also the potential for danger.

So goes the potent, provocative narrative contained in the photographs in Holly Andres’ exhibition “The Fallen Fawn,”currently on view at Jackson Fine Art. Using a color palette that suggests vintage Kodachrome, with hypersaturated, gaudy peaches and sickly seafoams, this young Portland, Ore.-based photographer has created a coming-of-age story set at midcentury that captures all the ambiguity, sense of danger, complexity, mystery, promise and fear that such an awakening can have for young girls.

How Solange Brand and her camera saw the Cultural Revolution, exhibition at Robert Klein Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Wednesday, August 17, 2016
Updated: Monday, August 15, 2016

Solange Brand was only 19 when she arrived at the French Embassy in Beijing to work as a secretary. It was November 1965. Stopping in Hong Kong on the way, she had bought a Pentax camera and color slides.

Rumblings of the rising Cultural Revolution began the following spring, and Brand recorded what she saw: young members of the Red Guard; masses demonstrating in the streets; propaganda on towering posters and in street theater.

The pictures she snapped are on view in “Solange Brand: China’s Cultural Revolution, 1966” at Robert Klein Gallery at Ars Libri. Later this year, Ars Libri will publish a portfolio of original prints of selected photographs.

At Bruce Silverstein, Paul Outerbridge's early self-portrait predicts the secret radicalism of his later ads

Posted By AIPAD, Monday, August 15, 2016

The photos by Paul Outerbridge that I know best are theNorman Rockwell-ish ones that he shot for color magazine ads in the 1930s and ‘40s. But the other day I fell in love with this radical 1927 self-portrait in black and white, now on view in his solo show at Bruce Silverstein gallery in New York.

Preview of 'Héctor Garcia: 60 Years of Remarkable Photography' at Throckmorton Fine Art

Posted By AIPAD, Tuesday, August 9, 2016
Updated: Friday, July 22, 2016

Héctor Garcia photographed the soul of Mexico. In his remarkable, six-decade-long career, he traveled extensively around the country, documenting its celebrities, celebrations, conflicts, and tragedies. One haunting picture captures Frida Kahlo in her coffin, with Diego Riviera looking on while a prayer is being read. In another, which André Malraux called one of the cruelest images of our time, a child covered in dirt sits folded up into a small crawl-space cut into a plane of concrete. These pictures and many more are displayed at Throckmorton Fine Art, in New York, in “Héctor Garcia: Sixty Years of Remarkable Photography,” a major retrospective that opens on September 22.

Review : Boomboxes and Birds: Lyle Owerko at Jackson Fine Art

Posted By AIPAD, Wednesday, August 3, 2016

What do our portable electronic devices and audio listening gadgets say about us as a culture? Delving into our recent past like some pop culture anthropologist, New York-based photographer Lyle Owerko focuses on an iconic relic from the ’70s and ’80s to address that topic in his exhibition “Boomboxes and Eagle Hunters,” currently on view at Jackson Fine Art. The other body of work, “Eagle Hunters,” is a study of the art of falconry in contemporary Mongolia. Despite their diverse subjects, the two share a connection as very specific subcultures that have rarely been given such detailed consideration as camera subjects.
