Final days to see "Light, Paper Process: Reinventing" at The Getty, Los Angeles featuring work by gallery artist Alison Rossiter.

"From its beginnings in experimentation by mid-19th century scientists and gentlemen of leisure, photography has been shaped by the desire to understand and explore the medium’s essential materials. Taking that spirit of invention and discovery as its point of departure, this exhibition features the work of seven artists—Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, John Chiara, Chris McCaw, Lisa Oppenheim, Alison Rossiter, and James Welling—who focus their investigations on the light sensitivity and chemical processing of photographic papers, challenging us to see the medium anew."

Light, Paper Process: Reinventing
April 14–September 6, 2015, Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90049-1679

Gallery Artist Scott Conarroe Interviewed About New Series ‘Frontière, Frontiera, Grenze’ on URBANAUTICA

David Pollock of URBANAUTICA, an independent online publisher on photography, interviews gallery artist Scott Conarroe on his recent glacier project and series ‘Frontière, Frontiera, Grenze’

"‘Frontière, Frontiera, Grenze’ is about the movable borders Alps nations devised in response to glacial melting and watershed drift. Permafrost thaw at high elevations is causing the landscape to disintegrate; boundaries established in the last century no longer correspond to the terrain. Switzerland, Italy, Austria and France have unfixed sections of their borders until the landscape “re-stabilizes”. When their glaciers are extinct in a few decades, new borders will be drawn to honour the various treaties. It’s an elegant acknowledgement that this moment is incalculable. And these places are truly beautiful. They seem timeless and pristine, but they’re very much expressions of a post-industrial atmosphere. The vague terror of paradigm shift is what makes them sublime."

Gallery Artist Jeff Thomas's 'Bear Portraits' Documents Three Decades of His Son from a Child to a Grown Member of Juno Award Winning Electronic Band A Tribe Called Red

Krystina Mierins of the National Post looks at gallery artist Jeff Thomas's "Bear Portraits" over the past three decades. These portraits are a series of Jeff's son, now a member of Juno Award winning electric band A Tribe Called Red, and how both men's practices have parallel themes and how they have learned from each other.

"For the past three decades, First Nations artist Thomas, now 59, has been photographing his son, now DJ Bear Witness of Juno Award winning electronic band A Tribe Called Red. Although the Bear Portraits span many years, it is not an extensive series, and Thomas says making them has usually been spontaneous. These portraits are part of the artist’s exploration of what it means to be indigenous. Thomas self-identifies as “urban-Iroquois,” a term he coined to recognize his experience growing up in cities rather than on reserves."

Atlas Obscura Interviews Gallery Artist Scott Conarroe on His Recent Publication "By Rail and By Sea"

Anika Burgess of Atlas Obscura, an online publication that is a definitive guide to the world's wondrous and curious places, interviews gallery artist Scott Conarroe on his process and journey to capture the images that make up his recent publication By Rail and By Sea (Black Dog Publishing).

"It ended up focussing on Canada and the U.S., no Mexico. I developed it into something I was confident about. By Rail started touring around Canada, but I had nowhere to be so I decided to engage another tired trope: the beach at sunset. By Rail and By Sea could have each been books, but I like the idea of rails crisscrossing the continent while a contour line hugs the perimeter. I see the railway section of By Rail and By Sea as commenting on the development of this geo-cultural bloc; the seasides anticipate an era increasingly defined by climate change."
