Richard Tuschman at Klompching Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Thursday, February 18, 2016

Klompching Gallery is delighted to present the debut of Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz, a new series of photographs by Richard Tuschman. This will form the artist's first solo exhibition at Klompching Gallery, and will be launched with an Opening Reception on Thursday, March 3rd, 6:00 - 9:00 pm, with the artist in attendance. 

 

Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz is a visual novella, which portrays a fictional Jewish family in 1930s Poland. Set in the once vibrant neighborhood of Kazimierz in Krakow, the location is a metaphor for loss and decay. In 1935, the Jewish historian Meir Balaban, described the neighborhood's declining Jewish population as being "only the poor and the ultra-conservative." Indeed, the darkness evident in the photographs, is underpinned by an awareness that the fates of the characters, are likely doomed by history, with the impending holocaust. While death, the fraying of family bonds, and feelings of grief haunt many of the photographs, this gloom is punctuated by moments of love, longing and tenderness.

Dain L. Tasker's Floral Studies at Joseph Bellows Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Tuesday, February 9, 2016

More often than not, x-rays are a medical tool used to take a peek inside a body and see if everything’s in the right place. But during the 1930s, one doctor turned his x-ray machine to another subject: the anatomy of flowers. Now, a collection of Dain L. Tasker’s x-ray images of flowers are on display in an exhibit called "Floral Studies" at the Joseph Bellows

Gallery in La Jolla, California.

 

When most people think of x-rays, they probably imagine sitting or standing in a hospital rooms in front of a strange-looking machine. However, at it’s core, an x-ray machine is really just a big camera—albeit one that takes photographs using radiation. Back in the 1930s, x-rays were still a pretty new technology when Tasker, then the head radiologist at Los Angeles’ Wilshire Hospital, turned the machine on one of his favorite subjects: flowers.

Helen Levitt's Twists and Turns at Laurence Miller Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Monday, February 1, 2016

Helen Levitt was a New York original. Born in 1913, she grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. After dropping out of high school, she went to work for a commercial photographer. In 1937, she purchased a camera and began taking photographs of the world around her to glorious effect, documenting the streets and sidewalks of her native land for more than six decades.

With her eye trained on the children of New York, Levitt’s work has become some of the most iconic examples of twentieth-century street photography. James Agee once observed of Levitt’s work, “The overall preoccupation in the photographs is, it seems to me, with innocence—not as the word has come to be misunderstood and debased, but in its full, original wildness, fierceness, and instinct for grace and form.”

Tamas Dezso's Notes for an Epilogue at Robert Koch Gallery

Posted By AIPAD, Friday, January 29, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO – In conjunction with the recent release of the monograph of the same title, the Robert Koch Gallery is pleased to present the second installment of Notes for an Epilogue, a series of large-scale color photographs by Hungarian photographer Tamas Dezso. Commenced in 2011, Notes for an Epilogue, a series that Dezso writes “aims to capture the sense of isolation, disillusionment, patience and hope” in Romania’s abandoned communities, presents a beautiful yet somber look at the pastoral landscapes and forgotten way of life of an economically exhausted Romania and remote regions within the country. As people flock to urban centers in search of a new way of life, these villages have become decaying symbols of the old reigning autocratic regime (1946 - 1989).
