“The first book on the work of Sharon Harper, From Above and Below, features ten years of experimental photographs and video stills of the sky—images of stars, sun, sky, moon and clouds. Sharon’s photographs within this volume draw on scientific and artistic uses of photography to illuminate the medium’s ability to simultaneously verify empirical evidence and record the artist’s subjective relationship to the natural world.”

LAS SOMBRAS | THE SHADOWS: Photograms by Kate Breakey
Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Attendees are asked to RSVP to email@example.com
“Las Sombras/The Shadowsfeatures work Australian native Kate Breakey created after moving to Arizona in 1999. Making pictures without a camera like William Henry Fox Talbot and Anna Atkins in the nineteenth century, Breakey also shares their affinity for recording the natural world in scientific detail as well as with artistic beauty. Her contact prints—known as photograms—have the sepia-toned look of Victorian images, yet their sensibility is distinctly modern. Luminous coyotes and whipsnakes, mice, rabbits, quail, cactus, moths and scorpions are imbued with her affection for the flora and fauna that inhabit the American Southwest, which is now her home. As she says, “The natural world is full of wondrous things to look at and to chronicle and catalogue. In my own way, I have devoted myself to that end.” Over 200 photograms, which Breakey donated to the Wittliff Collections and arranged salon style for the show, are on display, along with images from her newest series, Creatures of Light and Darkness. Las Sombras/The Shadows celebrates the next volume in the Wittliff’s Southwestern & Mexican Photography book series with the University of Texas Press.”

“The palace of memory is re-built again with each walk through. In her new series, Denudation, Mickey Smith presents a mesmerizing kind of in-situ laboratory-style photography—the image as evidentiary document, the print as cold case. The stark, dark photographs in this new exhibition test the limits of objectivity and the false consolation of casualness even as, in the tradition of documentary and crime-scene photography, the images aspire to conscientious neutrality. The photographs document those objects discarded within an abandoned library, but their formal objectivity is no guard against the ghosts of narrative, perceived or imagined.”
Saturday, October 27th, 3:00-5:00 pm
Book signing for Smith’s new book of the same title, Denudation.
The exhibition will be up until December 9, 2012.
