The Space Between Exhibition at the PRC

The Photographic Resource Center in Boston is opening a new exhibition, The Space in Between, featuring the work of Stefanie Klavens, Daniel Feldman, and Lynn Saville.  Curated by Erin Wederbrook Yuskaitis,the Program & Exhibition Manager of PRC, it runs from November 15th – January 10th, 2012.

Erin Wederbrook states:  The Space in Between focuses on societal built environments in urban settings. The images capture supposedly empty or vacant scenes in public spaces where humans are present without being pictured. The very absence of human subjects forces the viewer to contemplate the space in between these human-made structures. While firmly rooted in the 21st century, these photographs also portray a
timeless feel, as if the artists froze the frame at the initial moment
of abandonment, preserving a particular constructed expression of
culture for generations to come.



 Daniel Feldman, Stefanie Klavens, and Lynn Saville explore these issues through architectural images that very clearly display what humans are capable of while also revealing a deeper level of cultural vulnerability.

Tealia Ellis Ritter was born in Illinois in 1978. She was given her first camera, at the age of six by her father. After attending Columbia College Chicago, where she completed her BA in Fine Art Photography, she earned her MFA at the University of Iowa with a major in Fine Art Photography and a minor in Printmaking. Her interests lie in exploring, in both a physical and emotional sense, the ways in which people present themselves and their environment when they know they are on display. Her work focuses on the nature of longing, vulnerability, self-consciousness and image as a construction. She has exhibited internationally, most recently by The New Yorker, at PRC: Exposure 2011, on Women in Photography, at Catherine Edelman Gallery, by Taschen NYC and in Humble Arts' 31 Under 31 exhibition.

From The New Yorker:

Levy’s photographs of men have always been oddly fraught. In a new series of mostly small black-and-white images, her naked subjects twist, strain, and collapse in front of the camera in attitudes that suggest both agony and ecstasy, torture and sex. Inspired in part by vintage medical and forensic photographs, the pictures also zero in on details familiar from exposés on mental hospitals: contorted limbs, silent screams, drool. Levy is exploring female power and male vulnerability here, but her work doesn’t feel cruel or sensational. Instead, it’s tender and genuinely moving.
