NOTMAN’S WORLD
Dir. Albert Kish (Canada: 1989), 29 mins.

This documentary short is a portrait of Canadian photographer William Notman. Photography was still in its infancy when he opened his first studio in Montreal in the late 1850s. He rapidly turned his art, and a budding technology, into a highly successful business. Within 5 years he was appointed Photographer to the Queen. Not content with doing mere portraiture, he saw photography as a means of documenting history. With the use of props in his studio, composite photographs, and calling on his background as a trained artist, Notman immortalized the people and places of Canada.


DIRTY DANCING
Dir. Emile Ardolino (USA: 1987), 100 mins.

This classic coming of age romantic film is about 17 year old Frances “Baby” who is on summer vacation with her affluent family at a resort in New York.  While at the resort Baby develops a crush on the dance teacher, Johnny.  Baby’s parents do not approve of her hanging out with Johnny but that will not stop her from practicing dancing together.

Next Exhibition - André Kertész: Places and Things

The gallery is pleased to present our sixth solo exhibition of work by André Kertész.

ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ
Places and Things                           

Exhibition Dates: January 25 – February 22, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday January 25, 2-5pm

André Kertész (1894 - 1985) is an undisputed master of photography, an icon who created much of the visual vocabulary of the medium that is still in use today.  Widely recognized as a ‘father of photojournalism,’ his introspective work incorporates numerous genres of photography. From his earliest work in Hungary, Kertész’s photographs display a unique ability to infuse narrative and design into a personal documentary style.

Meubles Rustique, Latin Quarter, Paris, 1925

 
October 24, 1979


“Places and Things” highlights Kertész’s ability to create a still life and capture interiors that not only illustrate the lives of their inhabitants but also reflect his own state of mind. In these deceptively simple images of seemingly inanimate objects Kertész invites and challenges the viewer to do what he did each time he pushed down the shutter, which was to question his very existence and relationship to the world. This exhibition will include some of the most recognized photographs from the history of the medium, alongside wonderful examples previously unseen, directly from the archives of his Estate.

 Paris Night Square, 1927


Mondrian’s Glasses & Pipe, Paris, 1926

Since 2003, Stephen Bulger Gallery has been privileged to represent the Estate of André Kertész. Our exhibition is drawn from the various periods of Kertész’s photographic life. It begins in Hungary, where he lived until 1925, then to Paris from 1925-1936, and finally to New York, where he lived from 1936 until his death in 1985. Utilizing both vintage and photographs made late in Kertész’s life, we are celebrating the beauty, the genius, and the pathos of man who, time after time, captured in images what could not be articulated in words.

 Untitled, NYC, circa 1975


Note: The price list will be made public on January 25th, during the reception for the artist.
