Underage: Young Photographers

The amazing editor, Alison Zavos of the Feature Shoot blog, and visonary gallery director, Amanda Gorence have curated an exhibition, Underage, featuring six young photographers who document the the joys and travails of growing up in today’s world. Their photographs reveal a savvy and insight into a way of visual thinking that belies the calendar, truly remarkable as they are at an age where most of us were still picking the lint out of our belly buttons and wondering what to do with our lives.

The exhibition is at Pier 3 Uplands in Brooklyn Bridge Park and is part of Photoville, a unique photo village build from shipping containers.  Photoville and the Underage Exhibition will run through July 1st.

Aiden Morse

Growing up the secluded Australian island of Tasmania with only half a million inhabitants, it makes sense why Aiden Morse’s photographs convey a sense of lonliness.  Seventeen-year-old Morse started making photographs at 15, experimenting with both film and digital.  “For this series, I’ve been playing around with the aesthetic of ’70s and ’80s sci-fi and horror films, ” said Morse.  Morse’s inspriations are names; Edward Hopper, Gregory Crewdson, Steven Spielberg, and Stanley Kubrick; all men who evoke a sense of solitude or dramatic eeriness in their respective media.

“For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with observing adolescence and the transition to adulthood,” said 20- year-old Charlie Brophy.  The Australian photographer has been photographing teenage ambiguity since she fell in love with the darkroom at age 15.  “I am interested in the responsibilities teenagers take on between the transition from adolescence to adulthood…and the freedom of sexual androgyny that youth of today explore,” said Brophy.

Claire Oring

Claire Oring’s dreamy photos tell stories of nature, mysticism, and folklore, and centers around coming of age girls and their youthful perspectives. Oring credits her signature romantic and mystical themes to her love of art history.  “I look up to a lot of classical painters from the Renasissance and the Romantic ers…and the Pre-Raphaelites,” said Oring.  “The tell a story in each painting.”

 Lissy Laricchia

At the age of 18, Lissy Elle Laricchia is legally an adult, but her photos of tea parties, levitating girls in the forst, and poised ballerinas still have a firm grasp on childhood.  “Nothing inspires me like childish things…the love of learning and exploring what we as adults lose along the way,” said Laricchia.

Olivia Bee, born Olivia Bolles, is a
17-year-old photographer based in Portland, Oregon. Her intimate photos of
friends, youth, and falling in love for the first time feel like pages ripped
out of Bee’s own diary. “Everything can last forever when you’re 15 or 16,”
said Bee. “I think it’s one of the purest forms of love.”

From 2010 to 2011, 22 year-old Violet Forest documented her sister Vickie’s life.  She ended up with a raw and revealing look into her 24-year-old sibling’s struggles, romantic battles, and moments of peach that “depend on the familial intimacy between two sisters to explore the complexities of the individual,” said Forest.

The New York Times Magazine Photographs Panel Discussion at B&N

Join us for a panel discussion with longtime photo editor Kathy Ryan. She will discuss her new book, The New York Times Magazine Photographs (Aperture, 2011) at Barnes and Noble, along with photographers Gregory Crewdson and Taryn Simon.

The book reflects upon and interrogates the nature of both photography and print magazines, at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. It presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide of various types, including reportage, portraiture, style, conceptual photography, and photo illustration. Also addressed are issues of documentary photography in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of storytelling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful, or a tool for advocacy; as well as discussion of whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever. As such, The New York Times Magazine Photographs aims to serve as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary, and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.

Kathy Ryan (editor) is the award-winning photo editor of the New York Times Magazine. Ryan was recognized as Canon Picture Editor of the Year in 1997 at the Visa Pour l’Image festival in Perpignan, France, and in 2003 was named Picture Editor of the Year by the Lucie Awards.

Camera and Editing: Clinton Krute Audio: Luke Degnan Sometimes dreams, like words on the tip of the tongue, are perched on the tip of memory…at once so vivid, now the weight of déjà vu. A similar encounter happens when experiencing a Gregory Crewdson photograph, he brings you blindfolded to scenes of floating fantasy, crime, and calm only to unveil them suspended in motion, as if it’s The Day the Earth Stood Still. Funny, we sat down talking about another sci-fi movie—Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It was playing that evening in Great Barrington; Crewdson was psyched to see his favorite movie, yet again. It was the mounds of mud in the living room that got him, carrying over in his own work where the uncanny clings to the air like kudzu and invades nondescript suburbias. Suburbia, a place so American yet Italian at its earliest form—Is it any wonder the photographer found himself inspired at the root of his dreams? Traveling with an exhibition, Crewdson spent some time in Rome where he asked for a tour of Cinecittà. In the suburbs of Lazio, the renowned film studio built by Musolini and sanctified by Fellini just clicked with the photographer. The emptied out and overgrown film sets were all he needed to frame; the jumble of facades and follies telling their stories, no need to interject with his own surrealisms. After over a year of planning and six weeks in production, Crewdson arrived at Sanctuary, a series of small-scale black and white photographs, neutral and natural. In all their silence, the images speak to our own economic downturn and the chance to re-inhabit dreams. Click here to read the entire transcript of Richard J. Goldstein and Gregory Crewdson’s conversation. Gregory Crewdson’s exhibition, Sanctuary, opens September 23, 6-8pm at Gagosian Gallery.

Crewdson – A Review of Photo Alchemy

Some critics say the photographer and artist is reinventing the genre by using film techniques to stage pictures. windshield replacement denver .
