We had an amazing preview at Photo London yesterday! Thanks to all who visited us throughout the day, it was great to speak with so many of you about our artists. We are looking forward to the first day of public hours at the fair.

We’re kicking off this week of highlights with three amazing artists whose thoughtful work is not to be missed at this year’s installment of Photo London: Omar Imam, Michael Koerner and Gregory Scott! Visit booth G15 to see more.

Omar Imam

Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 9.51.03 AM
In 2012, Syrian activist turned photographer Omar Imam (b. 1979 Damascus) was kidnapped and tortured by a militia and only let go when a friend intervened. Soon after, Imam left Damascus with his parents and wife, settling in Beirut where he and his wife started a family. In 2016, he moved to Amsterdam, where he currently resides. His wife and children finally received the paperwork that allowed them to join him. In his photographic works, Imam uses irony and a conceptual approach to respond to the violent situation in Syria, often publishing his work under a pseudonym. After leaving Damascus in late 2012, he began making fictional short films that often focus on the Syrian refugee experience. Individually and with NGOs, he has produced films, photographic projects, and workshops for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Live, Love, Refugee is Imam’s photographic response to the chaos erupting in his homeland. In refugee camps across Lebanon, Imam collaborated with Syrians to create photographs that talked about their reality, rather than presenting them as a simple statistic. As a refugee himself, Imam understands the loss and chaos of being displaced from ones home. But dreams cannot be eradicated — dreams of escape, dreams of love, and dreams of terror. These dreams are what Imam set out to capture. The resulting images peel back the façade of flight, to reveal the spirit of those who persevere, despite losing everything that was familiar. These composed photographs challenge our perception of victimization, offering access into the heart and soul of humanity.

In April 2017, Omar received the Tim Hetherington Visionary Award. The Tim Hetherington Trust will be presenting Omar’s series Syrialism today as a part of their 2018 Award announcement at Photo London. Details can be found here.

Michael Koerner

Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 9.50.48 AM

Michael Koerner (b. Okinawa, Japan, 1963) is the oldest of five brothers. Due to genetic abnormalities and cancer, he is the only remaining living son. His brothers’ fates (and potentially his own) can be linked to their mother, who was eleven years old on August 9, 1945 when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. She lived in Sasebo, Japan, 45 miles away from the blast. The long-term effects of severe, acute exposure to gamma radiation led to his mother’s death at an early age, and all of his brothers. Koerner’s work explores his family history and genetics through small tintypes, using photographic chemistry to assimilate the bursts and biochemical fallout from the atom bomb. Koerner is one of the gallery’s newest represented artists and over 30 of his plates are available for viewing at our booth.

 

Gregory Scott

Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 9.50.03 AM

Gregory Scott has always blurred the lines between painting and photography, incorporating paintings he did of himself, or his body, back into his photographs. The resulting images were both humorous and odd, challenging the viewer’s perception of photographic truth. Then, at the age of 49, Scott decided to go to graduate school to strengthen his knowledge of art history and video making. Having successfully merged his love of painting and photographs, his interest turned to video and its ability to move and manipulate still images.

Continuing to use himself as the model, Scott creates narrative pieces which use illusion and surprise to tackle issues ranging from identity and loneliness, to the way the art world has pigeonholed the various mediums in which he works. In his pieces, Scott challenges the definitions placed on photography, painting and video, expanding its discourse.

Gregory Scott’s newest piece, “Rothko Chapel, 2018,is based on the space in which the painter’s 14 murals are installed in Houston, Texas. As many people know, photography is not permitted inside the chapel, but that did not stop Gregory. As a former model maker, he painstakingly built the chapel in his studio, creating his own access to its interior. The 6 minute video explores the experience of being inside the chapel, where meditation takes over, dreaming is encouraged, and the mind is free to imagine.

Welcome to The Photography Show

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.

Omar Imam
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.

Laurent Millet
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 hung next shelves holding work by Laurent Millet.

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.

Gregory Scott
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.

Jeffrey Wolin
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.
