Houston Center for Photography
Opening Reception: Soldier, At Ease
November 9, 2012, 6:00-8:00 pm, opening remarks at 5:30

“Houston Center for Photography is proud to present the exhibition, Soldier, at Ease. Through the work of Tim Hetherington, Louie Palu, and Erin Trieb, this exhibition will look at how active soldiers spend their private time “at ease,” while they are off duty, and also after they return home. Photographs and videos by these three photographers, as well as images created by active duty soldiers themselves, will illustrate a more personal experience of the solder as an individual.

The exhibition will directly coincide with the encyclopedic exhibition WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath presented by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, which will also include work by Hetherington, Palu, and Trieb. HCP’s exhibition will be on view from November 8, 2012 through January 6, 2013. The exhibition is organized by Executive Director Bevin Bering Dubrowski, Exhibition Coordinator Libbie J. Masterson, and the HCP Exhibitions Committee.”

The exhibition will be up until January 6, 2013.

August 18th, Daytona Beach: Exhibition “IN REVIEW: WAR” with Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins & Christopher Sims

Southeast Museum of Photography

A group exhibition featuring the work of Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins & Christopher Sims.

Exhibition dates: August 18 to October 2, 2011

“After ten years of turmoil, unceratinty and conflict we confront the anniversary of the events of September 11th.  What has happened since then, and how have photographers helped shape our understanding of these complex events and the circumstances surrounding them?  Four photographers and four dramatically different records are presented alongside images made at the actual site of what has become known as “ground zero” on that September day in 2001.

Each photographer has created a unique archive that powerfully articulates their own particular understanding of the forces in play in these events.  Drawing from the fields of portraiture, documentary and reportage photography; each series forms an authentic and engaging facet of the not-yet-complete archive of an elusive global conflict, and a series of wars that have not yet fully ended.”

An Artist’s Panel Discussion will be held on Friday, September 23, 2011 at 6:00 pm; reception to follow.
