From the Iliad onward, war has been a major theme in art and literature. With my Holocaust portraits and now with the portraits of Vietnam Veterans, my photograph/text pieces add to our understanding of how the trauma of war affects both combatants and civilians caught in the crossfire. Many important issues of war and peace emerge in the war stories and in the portraits themselves… continue reading

American Solider is free, open to the public, and runs January 23rd – June 21st.

 I am photographing available developer trays so that the photography community will remember specific, tangible printing tools that have been a seminal part of the photographic experience for the past hundred years. By titling each tray with its owner’s name, I reference the historical significance of these objects in a minimal manner that evokes thought and introspection about what images have passed through each individual tray. – John Cyr

Neverdoll

Neverdoll is a cinematic narrative that uses storytelling as a way to confront emotional states such as melancholy, loneliness and fear. The photographs represent pivotal moments in life’s journey, which is often a mysterious and romantic voyage. With the use of a small doll, with large eyes as the subject, the viewer is encouraged to immerse in themselves into these moments and to view the world differently. The artist, Fantoche, created the doll.

Neverdoll is ongoing project photographed with a medium format camera and printed in a darkroom using lith process. This process provides me the opportunity to create one of kind photographs that are as delicate and gritty as life itself. The lith prints are then scanned and printed as mounted pigment prints.

Chicago Reader’s favorite visual art of 2014!

Chicago Reader’s favorite visual art of 2014

Whether by some grand conspiracy or maybe (probably) just coincidence, Chicago’s curators and gallery owners spent 2014 preoccupied with the idea of transformation. Two of the fall’s most highly anticipated shows, “David Bowie Is” at the MCA and “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich” at Catherine Edelman Gallery, starring John Malkovich in Sandro Miller’s re-creations of iconic photographs, highlighted the multifarious incarnations of their subjects.    -Chicago Reader

Chicagoans and visitors alike braved large crowds over the weekend to bid adieu to the MCA’s David Bowie Is. This fantastic retrospective of the popular pop star highlighted him not only as a singer, but as a musician, actor, and above all a visual artist.

But, let’s not be sad our beloved Bowie is gone, because Malkovich will continue on! Sandro Miller’s Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters exhibition will be on view until January 31st!

Thank you Chicago Reader for the fantastic highlight!
