The Guardian and The Observer Reviews Gallery Artist Robert Burley's New Book

The UK Guardian and The Observer review Robert Burley's new book The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era.

"There have been various valedictory photographic essays about the passing of analogue photography over the past decade, but none quite as extensive as Robert Burley's 10-year project to chronicle the disappearance of the sites where film was produced and developed. "This book is my own march backwards into the future," he writes in the introduction. "It tells the story of an industry that was obliterated by the creative destruction of the digital age."

Gallery Artist Chris Coekin's Book The Altogether Chosen as One of the Best Books of 2012 by Photo-Eye Magazine

Chris Coekin's book The Altogether was chosen by Photo-Eye Magazine as one of the best books of 2012.

"The Altogether is the latest book by Chris Coekin. The photographs were produced in a factory that began manufacturing copper wire in 1834. Unfortunately, the factory recently closed and the entire workforce was made redundant. The Altogether is a multi-layered project that investigates the notions of art, work and struggle. The book comprises three series of images and is accompanied by a seven-inch vinyl record that includes two audio tracks: Days at The Factories and CuSO4 Shuffle."

Next Exhibition - Jeff Thomas, Resistance is NOT Futile, Opening December 1st



JEFF THOMAS
Resistance Is NOT Futile

Exhibition Dates: December 1, 2012 – January 19, 2013

Reception for the Artist: Saturday, December 1, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, December 1, 1pm (RSVP as seating is limited)

The work of American photographer Edward S. Curtis, particularly his seminal work The North American Indian, has been the focal point for this project. Thomas does not recreate a modern version of Curtis’ study of tribal culture, but considers what he did not photograph as a stepping stone to this new body of work. Thomas’ work engages the people he photographed, yet breaks through the seeming stasis of Curtis’ photographs by constructing a post-colonial conversation on Indianness.


Thomas (b. 1956; Buffalo, USA) is a self-taught photo-based artist and curator whose career in the visual arts began in 1979, following a life-changing car accident. He turned to an already-existing interest in photography in order to begin a new life and focused on confronting photo-based stereotypes of Indigenous people. His research into photographic history pointed out two significant absences: images of Indigenous people living in cities and images produced by Indigenous people. Thomas was frustrated by these absences and the silences they engendered and began to challenge these silences by creating new conversations through his photo-based work.



Plate – 11 Who Was Batsi-hawutush (Medicine Crow)?, 2011

As an independent curator, Thomas’ specialty is the exploration of historical cultural resources to bring voices, stories and perspectives into the present. In his curatorial projects, such as “Where are the Children: Healing the Legacy of Residential Schools” and “Emergence From the Shadow: First Peoples' Photographic Perspectives” at the Canadian Museum of Civilization and “Aboriginal Portraits” at the National Archives of Canada, Thomas mined the archival vaults of non-Native visual and written records to recover lost elements of the history of Indigenous people.

Thomas’ work would eventually lead him to self-identify as an urban-Iroquois – someone who was born in Buffalo, New York, and is also an enrolled member of the Six Nations reserve in Ontario. Finding a balance between the Iroquois identity that his elders at Six Nations instilled in him and surviving as an Indian in the city lead him to weave a new story from the fragmented cultural elements left in the wake of North American colonialism.

Plate – 4 Indian Families, 2010

His work has been exhibited by major institutions around the world and can be found in many important private and public collections including: Bank of Montreal, Toronto; Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, Ottawa; Canadian Museum of Civilization, Quebec; Indian Art Centre, Ottawa; Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops; MacLaren Art Centre, Barrie; Art Gallery of Winnipeg, Winnipeg; Museum of the American Indian, Washington; Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne; Museum der Weltkulturen, Frankfurt; National Archives of Canada, Ottawa; Oakville Galleries, Oakville; British Museum, London; Canada Council Art Bank, Ottawa; Ottawa Art Gallery, Ottawa; University of Toronto Art Centre Gallery, Toronto; amongst many others.


* Note: The price list will be made public on December 1st, the day the exhibition opens.

André Kertész Self-portraits Exhibition Opening Tomorrow


ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ
Self-portraits

Exhibition Dates: October 27 – November 24, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 27, 2-5pm
Conversation in the Gallery: Saturday, October 27, 2:30pm. Join us for a conversation between Robert Gurbo, Curator of the Estate of André Kertész, and Stephen Bulger.

Selected from a collection of over 1,000 self-portraits, these images offer a fascinating glimpse into the psyche of one of photography’s early masters. In 1912, André Kertész received a small format glass plate camera from his mother as a high school graduation present. He and his younger brother Jeno delved into the medium by taking photographs of each other, as well as their family, friends and street scenes in and around Budapest. Shortly thereafter, Kertész hired a machinist who fashioned a small spring loaded device that he designed for his camera that enabled him to take self-portraits (Kertész later insisted that he had invented the world’s first self-timer for a camera).


Self-portrait as a soldier, Esta, Hungary
, 1915
When Kertész was drafted into the Austro-Hungarian army in 1914, Jeno sent him an ICA Bebe camera, which had a magazine of seven plates that allowed him to work more fluidly. During this time he frequently took self-portraits that were sent home. In many of these photographs, Kertész would often pose in conversation with his fellow subjects; in an effort to make the images look natural, creating an atmosphere of interaction and comradery. In these photographs, Kertész skillfully becomes a participant and an observer from within the photograph. We often find him slightly off to the side, actively watching the image while it is being taken. This became a methodology that he would use time and again in the future. After returning home from the war, he floundered through various careers. Frustrated by his inability to find fulfilling work, he wrote in his diary, “I am a nobody.” However, he continued to produce photographs during this time, including various self-portraits where he would present himself posed in a variety of situations and occupations such as an artist, a country bumpkin, a successful business man, a scholar, a beekeeper and he even photographed himself in drag. In these self-portraits, Kertész appears to have used the medium in an effort to establish a personal identity and credibility – as if trying on different hats in an attempt to define himself. Despite living with a deep sense of self-doubt, Kertész, for the most part, presented himself as happy and successful in these photographs.


5 Rue de Vanves, Paris
, 1926
With great trepidation, and at the insistence of his girlfriend Elizabeth, whom he would later marry, a despondent Kertész moved to Paris in 1925 in hopes of establishing himself as a photographer. Although lonely, poor and wracked with self-doubt during his first years in Paris, Kertész made great efforts to convince his family otherwise. He sent home many self-portraits depicting himself as settled and successful. Seeing right through his pretense, his mother and family responded by urging him to return home for a hot meal, friendship and family.


Self Portrait with Camera
, 1936
Kertész moved to New York City in October of 1936 where he struggled professionally and personally for decades. Here his self portraiture became bifurcated; while many images illustrate his despondent nature, others present a more upbeat attitude – the latter clearly representing his hopes and aspirations rather than the hard reality that New York life had presented. During this time he also began to make what could only be defined as projected self-portraits – photographs of inanimate objects, buildings or even other people that he said reflected his state of mind and which he insisted were self-portraits. Lost Cloud, 1937, and Melancholic Tulip, 1939, are some of the better known photographs that he defined as such. Looking at his entire oeuvre with this notion in mind reveals a wealth of images that, while not strictly self-portraits, obviously represent self reflection and take on deeper meaning.


Melancholic Tulip, New York
, 1939
The autobiographical imprint of his work is explored in an essay by Robert Gurbo, Curator of the Estate of André Kertész, which will be featured in an upcoming publication about these remarkable photographs by this extraordinary artist.

Alison Rossiter: Lost and Found

The gallery is pleased to present our third exhibition with Alison Rossiter, which concentrates on her found photograms that exist as latent images until they are processed using darkroom chemistry.

ALISON ROSSITER
Lost and Found

Exhibition Dates: September 22 – October 20, 2012
Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 22, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, September 22, 1-2pm (RSVP as seating is limited)

Working under the safelight, while in the developer, abstract images appear on surfaces of the various types of photo papers that Alison Rossiter has collected from hundreds of sources; some more than 100 years older than the expiration date printed on their packages. For Rossiter, a select few of those processed produce aesthetically pleasing results. The images formed are the result of the organic components of the gelatin silver papers decaying over time. Some are reminiscent of 20th Century art practice while others are arrangements of fingerprints of long deceased photographers, making this project one about archeology as well as art.

 
Ansco Cyko, expired May 1918, processed 2012, diptych
Her simple working style – buying previously opened packages of old darkroom papers and processing them without exposing them to light – belie the sophistication of these images. Indeed, it is her mastery of photographic technique that coaxes the richly dense blacks, the impressive grey tones, as well as the clean whites that produces such exquisite results. Finally, it is also her ability to recognize excellence in a handful of successes that makes this work an exceptional homage to the medium of photography.



Eastman Kodak Bromesko (London), exact expiration date unknown, ca. 1940’s, processed 2011

Born Jackson, Mississippi, 1953, Rossiter has worked with the materials and processes of light sensitive, gelatin silver based photography since 1970. The darkroom is essential to her work process, whether it involves the traditional printing of negatives, drawing with flash lights, or making photograms. In 2003, she immersed herself into the field of photographic conservation as a volunteer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which led to a profound appreciation of the history of photographic materials.



USSR paper, expired 1957, processed 2010

For over three decades, she has been exhibited by many major institutions around the world and her work has been collected by important private and public institutions such as: National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; Nelson/Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City; The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver; amongst others.

Join Us for the Queen West Art Crawl

We are happy to announce that we will once again be participating in the Queen West Art Crawl. Please join us on Saturday, September 15th and Sunday, September 16th for your last chance to see our summer exhibition, "First Photographs," which was co-curated by Rare Photo Gallery and Stephen Bulger Gallery.

This exhibition of over 50 vintage prints, from a wide variety of makers, concentrates on photographs of North American Indigenous Peoples. Early ethnographic photography is a hybrid of fact and fiction; however an appreciation for their unique qualities as historical artifacts enables the viewer to move beyond pure exoticism.

The majority of the exhibition is arranged geographically and a number of photographs are made by unknown photographers (comprised of professional photographers, ethnographers and amateurs). It will also feature many types of early photographic processes and techniques, which serves to underscore the evolving nature of what the medium was able to capture and present.

Known photographers in the exhibition include:

GEORGE BARKER; D.F. BARRY; W.P. BLISS; L.T. BURWASH; CASE & DRAPER; DRANE; E.W. HALL; HAMILTON & HOYT; RICHARD HARRINGTON; WILLIAM E. IRWIN; H.G. KAISER; W.H. MARTIN; HANNAH H. MAYNARD; LEE WILLIAM MOHR; WILLIAM M. NOTMAN; S.W. ORMSBY; WILLIAM M. PENNINGTON; HARRY POLLARD; and ISAIAH WEST TABER.
