Book Review for Alex Webb's Memory City

Gallery artist Alex Webb published the book Memory City, a series documenting Rochester and it's role in photography's history. Follow the link to read the review by the Photo-Eye Blog.

"Photography is as intertwined with memory as it is with light, shadow and surface. The individual film or sensor choice made by the photographer determines how memory is rendered, a choice that is as important as what the photographer puts in front of their camera. In their new book, Memory City, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb investigate Rochester, New York during the time Eastman Kodak was in bankruptcy. They explore how memory, photography, film and the book making process come together to make a statement about a place during a particular time." - Reviewed by Tom Leininger

Next Exhibition - Duane Michals: An Exhibition


Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Duane Michals.

DUANE MICHALS
An Exhibition


Exhibition Dates: September 20 – October 18, 2014

This exhibition features some of the fascinating works produced during a remarkable career of almost 50 years. Raised in his birthplace of McKeesport, PA, Michals' interest in art began at the age of 14 while attending watercolour classes at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh. In 1953 he received a B.A. from the University of Denver. After two years in the Army, during which time he served in the Korean War, he studied at the Parsons School of Design and planned to become a graphic designer but did not complete these studies.

In 1958, while on a holiday in the USSR, he became interested in photography and eventually became a commercial photographer, after having worked as an art director and designer, completing assignments for magazines such as Vanity Fair, Esquire and Mademoiselle. Unlike others at the time who operated out of lavish studios, this self-taught photographer made environmental portraits. These portraits would become the basis of his book entitled Album. In 1970 his work was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and since that time his work has been exhibited around the world. The Carnegie Museum of Art will host a major retrospective exhibition in October of 2014.

A renowned innovator, Michals pushes the limits of photography. His early works presented images in series, at times narrated with text scrawled directly on the print, embracing each imperfection that may appear from this process. More recently, Michals has created hand-painted tintypes, modifying the images of amateur journeymen, emphasizing the “found object” quality of these images and questioning what he describes as “the museum photograph”.

His work has been exhibited widely in major institutions around the world and is found in many prestigious permanent collections. Amongst other honours, in 1993 Duane Michals was named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters in France.

Another Interesting Plot Twist In The Story of Vivian Maier

"The Heir’s Not Apparent: A Legal Battle Over Vivian Maier’s Work

The story of the street photographer Vivian Maier has always been tangled — she worked much of her life as a nanny, keeping her artistic life a secret, and only after she died in 2009, at the age of 83, nearly penniless and with no family, were her pictures declared to be among the most remarkable of the 20th century. Now a court case in Chicago seeking to name a previously unknown heir is threatening to tie her legacy in knots and could prevent her work from being seen again for years." - Randy Kennedy for The New York Times

Mugshot Documentary To Air on TVO

Stephen Bulger takes the stage to speak about the history of mugshots in the documentary "Mugshots". It is scheduled to air on TVO on Wednesday, September 24th at 9pm.

"TVO continues its tradition of commissioning documentaries that educate and inspire with Mugshot, director Dennis Mohr’s intriguing documentary on how mug shot photographs, whose primary purpose is criminal identification, have emerged into a form of art and entertainment. Bringing together a number of artists, writers, curators and gallery owners from Canada and the United States, Mohr explores the cultural significance of the mug shot. Sensationalized by the reality culture of today, this law enforcement tool has gained popularity and become tabloid fare, street art and highly valued pieces in private collections." - TVO

Lida Moser, Famed Photographer, Dies at 93


"Lida Moser, a photographer who trained her camera on faces and scenes that reflected life as it was experienced in New York and elsewhere during the second half of the 20th century, died Aug. 11 at a nursing facility in Rockville, Md. She was 93.

Ms. Moser was the daughter of Jewish immigrants from Russia and began her decades-long career in New York City in the late 1940s.

She became a photographer for Look magazine and Vogue, among other showcases for photography, wrote the ‘‘Camera’’ column for The New York Times in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and published several books on her art form.

‘When I became a photographer,’ she wrote in a letter to Washington City Paper, ‘I was determined to use photography as a magic key into as many aspects of life as I possibly could.’

Ms. Moser was particularly known for her photography of her home town, the place that she called ‘dirty, wild, noisy, criminal New York.’ She trained as an assistant to Berenice Abbott, the trailblazing modernist photographer, and was inspired by her collection of images by Eugene Atget, the French photographer known for his perceptive documentation of Parisian life." - Emily Langer for the Boston Globe

Alex Webb Book Review in Fraction Magazine


"Memory City cannot be read simply as an act of tribute to Rochester, Kodak and film: these homages exist in the book as elements of a much more expansive exploration of photography, generally. Memory City ably links major tropes from photography’s history with the specificity of the Webbs’ explorations of Rochester. The book addresses the experience of making pictures, and of interpreting them, and is exhilarating in its presentation of images that have as much to say about the photographers as they do about the subject." - Reviewed by Leo Hsu
