Manfestations 1, 2014 © Locrin Stewart

Manifestations is, technically, an investigation of chemical processes and the semi-controlled destruction of silver-gelatin prints. Personally, it is an abstract investigation into intangible fear, inner turmoil, and imperceivable horror.
Locrin Stewart is currently entering his fourth year at Ryerson University, and has an interest in darkroom printing and chemical processes.

Honouring Gallery Artist Robert Giard at Fellowship Benefit

"This is an exciting homecoming for the Foundation after 12 years of activity as a New York City-based non-profit focusing on the visual arts. The East End is where Bob Giard lived. It is the place he loved and where he matured as a photographer. The fellowship extends the spirit of Robert Giard, for it supports visual artists like him whose content in the area of human sexuality, gender and the LGBTQ experience is often closed to official channels of support. " - The Robert Giard Foundation

Date: Sunday, August 24, from 5-7 p.m.
Location: At the home of Sue Shapiro 280, Gerard Drive, East Hampton, NY

Canadian Art Features Carl Zimmerman's Cold City

Take a look at our link below to check out the Canadian Art video featuring Carl Zimmerman's current exhibition Cold City.
"In this video report on Carl Zimmerman’s exhibition 'Cold City' at Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto, Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes reflects on the Nova Scotia–based photographer’s preoccupation with haunting industrial spaces.

Some of these monochromatic photographs, Rhodes notes, have such a sense of the darkly cinematic that they could be storyboard renderings for a new Ridley Scott film." - Canadian Art

Next Exhibition - Vivian Maier: Photographs of Children


Stephen Bulger Gallery is proud to present our second exhibition of photographs by Vivian Maier. 

VIVIAN MAIER
Photographs of Children

Exhibition Dates: July 17 – September 13
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 17, 5-9pm

This exhibition features compelling portraits of childhood, offering insight into the mysterious life of this elusive photographer.  Maier worked most of her adult life as a nanny. She spent countless hours in the company of children, capturing the fleeting moments of their young lives. A selection of vintage prints, as well as posthumous exhibition prints made by master printers Ron Gordon and Sandra Steinbrecher will be displayed.

Chicago (Boys Posing on Street), 1968 © Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier was born in New York City and lived many years in the Champsaur Valley in France, where several generations of her family had lived. As a young woman she became enamoured with photography and would often shoot a full roll of film or more in a day, a habit that she continued throughout her life. In the early 1950s she returned to New York and later moved to the North Shore of Chicago where she lived until her death in 2009.

New York (Girl with Music Box), 1951 © Vivian Maier

Maier’s storage lockers held the accumulation of her passion: negatives, prints, camera equipment and undeveloped film would eventually amount to about 120,000 unique images. In 2007, Maier could no longer afford storage, and her belongings began to be sold at auction. Several bidders purchased parts of the collection and Chicago art collector Jeffrey Goldstein acquired his portion from two of the original buyers. Goldstein’s collection of about 20,000 negatives, prints, slides and films, is the source of our exhibition.

Vivian Maier was by all accounts, a private person. While she was rarely without her camera, there is little evidence to suggest that she shared her photographs with others. Over the past five years, the caretakers of her collection have had the joy of sharing her work with the world in exhibitions throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. The public reaction to her work is unprecedented and her reputation as a photographer continues to grow as her work is exhibited and appreciated.

To date, four books of Maier’s work have been published, including most recently, Vivian Maier: Eye to Eye written by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams. Ms. Maier has also been the subject of two documentary films: The Vivian Maier Mystery, an award-winning film by the BBC and Finding Vivian Maier, a film in current release that chronicles her life as well as the role that Chicago historian, John Maloof played in bringing her work to the public’s attention.

Though Vivian Maier’s work was never exhibited in her lifetime, it is now apparent that her work will live on, inspiring others and establishing her as one of the best street photographers of the 20th century.
