The Photography Show, presented by AIPAD, opens today! Below are five of our featured artists and a little about their work. If you’re in New York City, be sure to stop by booth 402 and see it all in person.
Syrian photographer and refugee Omar Imam collaborated with other refugees in camps across Lebanon to create photographs about the chaos in their homeland. Images from Omar’s Live, Love, Refugee series, accompanied by the subjects’ stories, will be on view at booth 402 . A set of photographs including the text are also available.
Also at AIPAD is a selection of work from Laurent Millet’s solo show Somnium, which is currently on view at the gallery. Somnium features four different series from Millet’s extensive oeuvre. Millet is known for photographing delicate constructions made out of mostly found materials. See images from La Chasse and Les Cabanes at our booth.
Robert and Shana Parkeharrison
The Parkeharrisons have an extensive career of constructing sets and arranging scenes to be photographed. Mankind’s ongoing conflicts with technology and nature are explored in a range of mediums including photogravures and sculpture. Don’t miss seeing “Riverview, 2015” from Robert and Shana’s show Precipice with CEG last year.
In both homage to and critique of historical artists, Greg Scott creates humorous, multi-media installations in which he is the subject. Each of his pieces usually include elements of painting, video, and photography, but result in an object that subtly houses them all. His latest piece “Georgia and Alfred, 2016” presents the intertwined relationship between the two artists, as well as how their separate careers are shown in the collections of major institutions. This is one of two pieces by Greg we are showcasing.
Jeff is a dedicated photographer and a master printer. We are thrilled to have portraits from his Pigeon Hill, Then & Now project on view; a diptych accompanied by handwritten stories transcribed directly onto the surface of the image. Another of Jeff’s series, Stone Country, is also on view.
Follow along with us this week for coverage of AIPAD 2017, and to see more of the featured artists hanging in booth 402.
