  • Lukas Birk: Kafkanistan

    Friday Jul 24 2015

     

     

     

     

    In the summer of 2005, a visual artist and an anthropologist teamed up for an unusual journey. Lukas Birk (under the alias “Smiley Wallah”) and Sean Foley (under the alias “Kartunwallah”) ventured into Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran as tourists. This new type of ‘tourism’—one mixed with journalistic ambitions—allowed the pair to experience the countries, their people, and their cultures for themselves.

    Birk and Foley spent many months travelling through Afghanistan and neighboring countries trying...

    Celebrated portrait photographer August Sander observed, “People are not simply what they are but rather are engaged in a continuing process of creating and projecting themselves.” It is for this reason that the portrait photographer’s work speaks so vividly to us. We may observe their work, a...

  • Stephen Frailey: Dear Dave,

    Friday Jul 10 2015

     

     

     

     

    Illustrated publishing is a calling—and a labor of love. It is something that runs through the blood of the select few who are charged to create, to execute, to produce in paper and inks, to collect stories and lay them bare upon the printed page. Stephen Frailey understands this well. As the editor-in-chief of Dear Dave, an independent magazine published three times a year, Frailey brings together an incredible array of photographic work, beautifully designed...

    Bronx, New York City, New York/July 20, 1972
    Members of the New York street gang Savage Skulls strike a pose reminiscent of West Side Story. The trademark of the primarily Puerto Rican gang was a sleeveless denim jacket with a skull and crossbones design on the back.

    Show off, 2000

     


    Child in bird coop, 1998

     


    Half blinded, 1996

    Roger Ballen’s monograph Outland was first released in 2001, to startling effect. His portraits were haunting images of people seemingly possessed by something so otherworldly it stopped one in their tracks. His subjects were white folk living on the outskirts of South Africa in a state of poverty so raw, it drew pause. To stare or not to stare? To rush past, in horror, or to slowly take it all in? It was all...

    Chalk Birds, 2009

    We have a complicated relationship with animals, perhaps founded in the idea that we are not one of them. As humans, we enjoy creating hierarchies where there may be done, consistently creating artificial tests of intelligence that elevate us above the animal kingdom.By presenting and reinforcing false walls between ourselves and the natural world, we do more harm than good. Animals are the creatures Nature put forth...

    Tim Horn is an inspiration. What began as a social media project documenting his life has blossomed into the artist’s first solo exhibition. He recalls, “On November 25th, my birthday, I started a project via my Facebook feed: “44X365,” a photograph a day throughout my 44th year. Approaching the six-month mark, it is clearly a collection of what I anticipated: the alluring, the repellant, the beguiling,...

    Friday Apr 24 2015

     

     

     

     

    Newark in the 1970s was synonymous with urban despair. The riots of 1967, sparked by television news broadcasts of a clash between African Americans and police in the Fourth Ward, left the city in shambles with 26 dead; 15,00 wounded; 1,600 arrested, and $10 million in property damages. More than a thousand businesses were torched or looted, including 167 groceries, most of which would never reopen. Newark’s reputation...

    The photographs of Danny Clinch combine a raw immediacy and elegance of composition that makes them unforgettable.
