Photograph Magazine profiles Molly Lamb whose introspective work is on display at Rick Wester Fine Art

Posted By AIPAD, Wednesday, October 5, 2016

As a photojournalist for city newspapers, Molly Lamb was used to photographing other people’s stories. It didn’t occur to her that it might be interesting to photograph her own...Her photographs, which make use of reflective surfaces and shadows, are like palimpsests, one layer giving way to another, meaning multiplying and shifting. It’s not surprising that Lamb also writes poetry, that most indirect and allusive of literary forms. When work from three of her series – Ghost Stepping, Let It Go, and Take Care of Your Sister – is on view at Rick Wester Fine Art from September 15 through November 19, selections of her poetry will be on view as well.

David Leventi:  Opera

 

through July 10, 2015

 

 

Son of two architects, photographer David Leventi’s eye is attuned to space and its special qualities.  In the series Opera, now on view at Rick Wester Fine Art, Leventi draws on all the magic of the Opera House; he captures the formal elegance of the space, the drama of forum, and the anticipation of the performance; all these emotions hum around us and crescendo in frame after frame.  In the eight years Leventi spent on the project he traveled to over 40 opera houses and almost 20 countries. 

 

A review of the work by Myles Little in Time LightBox opens with a quote by Plácido Domingo that situates us properly within the work:

 

“'In the English-speaking world they say ‘Break a leg.’ But in Italy, they say, ‘In bocca al lupo,’ which means, ‘In the wolf’s mouth.’ Because when we singers face the audience from the stage of a traditional . . . opera house, with its tiers of boxes and galleries, we feel that we could be in the jaws of some gigantic beast. . .'”  (Time Lightbox).  

 

Indeed, positioned as we are in each frame at center-stage, we feel a true sense of awe.
