Our current installment of Ctrl+P: Photography Taken Offline features the work of Lottie Hedley. Hedley is a lawyer turned photographer from a dairy farm in New Zealand who is currently searching for the meaning of community through photography. Having left her job in corporate law in London at the end of 2009, Hedley attended the professional certificate program at Maine Media College in Rockport, ME. After only one year photographing, Hedley was selected for the 24th Eddie Adams Workshop in 2011 and a year later for Review Santa Fe 2012. Hedley recently finished up an internship at VII Photo Agency in New York City. She has also worked for Down East Magazine, Savannah Magazine, Good Magazine (NZ), Skirt Magazine and as the on-set photographer for Anatomy of the Tide feature film.
Life in the Hilty household works in circles. Food at meals is passed around the table in a clockwise circle; while questions regarding the morning’s bible reading come around the table in an anti-clockwise direction. The seasons impress their own circular influence on the family’s market gardening business and their method of farming cycles the soil through a process that ensures the soil is enriched rather than stripped. Perhaps most importantly, the family’s philosophy on farming for the future generations is according to an over-arching cycle. Their philosophy is to work with the land instead of against it and they don’t want their children to have to deal with problems they’ve created by farming the land to excess.
Milo and Velma Hilty and their family of five moved to the old abandoned dairy farm in Smyrna Mills, northern Maine, near the Canadian border, in the spring of 1996. Back then the farm was covered in wild strawberries and paint-brush. Nowadays the family sustainably and organically farms 20 acres, mostly vegetables, which they sell locally and at mid-coast towns further south, Bangor and Rockport, ME and at their “Back 40 Growers” farm-stand on route two, which sells the produce of eight Amish families.
The Hilty’s are down-to-earth folks. In the spring they are down on their knees literally: hands deep in the soil planting seedlings in the soft, mellow earth. Following the summer’s rigorous growth and the aging of autumn is the breather offered by winter when a deep blanket of snow covers the sleeping earth in Smyrna Mills. It is then that the Hilty’s have the time for reflection back on the past growing season and the time for browsing through seed catalogs dreaming about future summer gardens. Thus the cycle continues.
Ctrl+P: Photography taken offline is an exciting venture at Catherine Edelman Gallery inspired by the hundreds of photographs we see on blogs and online galleries. Started in January 2011, CEG introduces Chicagoans to new artists we find while searching the web, exhibiting a small selection of one person’s work every two months, taking the pictures offline and putting them on the wall. It is our goal that Ctrl+P will provide further exposure for these photographers away from the glow of a computer monitor and without the temptation to click to the next link. We hope you will join us by unplugging from the internet and visiting CEG to see these photographs the way they were intended — in print.
Michael Kenna is undoubtedly one of the most exhibited and collected photographers working today. With a signature style all his own, Michael Kenna has achieved international recognition for his photographs, which have been exhibited throughout the world and are included in the permanent collections of most major museums. Kenna has proven time and again that his vision knows no boundaries. Whether working along the shores of South Korea, the Great Wall of China, mines in Germany or the gardens in France, Kenna seeks places of solitude, which speak volumes about humanity and the haunting beauty found in nature. We invite you to wander with the artist through places that are both remote and heavily trafficked, reminding us of the beauty we tend to overlook.
May 10 – July 6, 2013
Opening reception: Friday, May 10, 5:00-7:00pm
To see all of the images in the exhibition and read more about Michael Kenna’s work, visit www.edelmangallery.com.

About the book:
The book “Anna & Eve” is not simply a catalog; it is a journey into a realm of fantasies and fairy tales, overlapping with the realities of everyday life. In addition to Viktoria’s photographs portraying the enigmatic relationship between mother and daughter, this book reveals the insightful gaze of a child into the world of adults through Eve’s commentary about the important aspects of our existence. This book also opens with a prologue where you will discover Eve’s tale about “her planet” as well as a dream-like sequence of images with Anna & Eve, which you will find only in this book!
