Vogue Italia Features Ruth Kaplan's "Bather" Series in Photostories

Steam Room, California, 1992 © Ruth Kaplan /

May 18, 2016    by REDAZIONE

“Bathers” explores the social theatre of communal bathing. This project began in the nudist hot springs of California in 1991. By participating in the baths myself, I was became accepted and was able to make photographs.

From the Californian new-age retreats I travelled to Eastern Europe to experience a more traditional form of the ritual. The generous array of body types and ages became a component of the work as did the decaying architecture of the pools. I then travelled to the high-tech spas of Western Europe, and completed the project in Moroccan hamams and Icelandic hot springs in 2002. The duality of being both voyeur and participant throughout this project offered me a way into a world considered private. - Ruth Kaplan

Pride Photo Award Calling For Entries


Pride Photo Award is calling for entries. This award, now in its sixth successful year, is dedicated to highlighting sexual and gender diversity. Photographers are invited to enter their work via the contest page before 30 June with an option to submit in four categories: Single Images, Stories, an Open category and a category for the theme of the 2016 edition: Insiders / Outsiders.

The 2016 theme is about communities. The groups of people you (want to) feel a part of, and the people you do or do not welcome in the communities you belong to. It is about joining, belonging, participating and ostracizing. It is about families, society, parishes, clubs, intimate circles. The theme also reflects on the role of the photographer as an outsider or insider, and whether the photographer creates a world that invites the viewer in, or shows the viewer a world they are not a part of, like a voyeur.


The overall winner will be flown to Amsterdam and accommodated at the beautiful Lloyd Hotel to attend the opening weekend and the Award Ceremony on Friday 16 September. 

Amsterdam’s stunning Old Church provides the venue where the one-month exhibition of the winning series will be held. A selection of the photos will also be displayed on large photo panels throughout the city. The exhibition is expected to draw 25.000 visitors. After this initial period the exhibition will travel around the Netherlands and maybe even abroad. The images will be judged by a jury of international photography experts, including gallery artist Sunil Gupta, with their final decision being officially announced on 14 July 2016.

The contest starts on 13 May and ends on 30 June. Pass it on! Please help share this fantastic opportunity with photographers working with gender or sexual diversity by forwarding this Call for Entries in your network!

Reminder! Don't Miss Sarah Anne Johnson's Talk at the McMichael Gallery this Saturday May 14th with Curator Sharona Adamowicz-Clements

Sarah Anne Johnson: In Conversation
Speaker: Sarah Anne Johnson
Saturday, May 14, 11 am to 12 pm

In conversation with curator Sharona Adamowicz-Clements, Winnipeg artist Sarah Anne Johnson will be discussing her latest project about Canada’s outdoor music festivals—which Johnson sees as a forum for a community of people coming together to create a modern-day Dionysian celebration through a connection to nature, music, and dance, and the rejection of social norms. Over several years, Johnson has attended many such events across the country, taking photographs of the people she met in their search for an altered state of being. Continuing her ongoing thematic exploration of utopian states and that which hides beneath the surface, in this series of works Johnson explores hedonistic pursuits and the not-so-glamorous realities of festival gatherings, particularly in their connection to drug culture.

Counterpoints: Photography Through the Lens of Toronto Collections Exhibition Opening Tonight at UTAC


Counterpoints: Photography Through the Lens of Toronto Collections

May 6 – July 30, 2016
Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and University of Toronto Art Centre
Curated by Jessica Bradley
Presented in partnership with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Opening reception:
Thursday, May 12 at 7:00-9:00pm

at the University College Quadrangle patio,
University of Toronto Art Centre

Featuring work by gallery artists Robert Burley, Scott Conarroe, Jim Goldberg, Dave Heath, Geoffrey James, Sarah Anne Johnson, André Kertész and Vivian Maier.

The Art Museum is proud to present Counterpoints, a major exhibition that reveals the remarkable breadth and depth of interest in photography in this city. The exhibition has evolved through the generosity of passionately committed collectors who granted the loan of their works, allowing them to be seen by the public - many for the first time in Toronto. Highlighting a broad spectrum of private collections, Counterpoints proposes an experience of looking at photography that is ultimately heterogeneous and non-linear. Spanning nearly two centuries, the exhibition comprises 19th century singular images captured on metal and glass plates, through to artists’ works that acknowledge photography’s endlessly reproducible, ubiquitous presence in a vast and ephemeral digital world.
