February 20th, NYC: Lecture by Andrea Stillman “Looking at Ansel Adams: The Photographs and the Man”

Lecture by Andrea Stillman
Looking at Ansel Adams: The Photographs and the Man
Wednesday, February 20, 2013, 1:00-3:00 pm
Registration is closed, arrive early to get on the waiting list.
“Few photographers have had more impact on America than Ansel Adams, and we are very excited to be able to celebrate his birthday with his former assistant, Andrea Stillman. Andrea’s talk will be an intimate look at the photographer and the man. Said an attendee at one of her museum lectures, ‘You made Ansel come to life for all of us.’
Here is what Andrea has to say about working with Ansel: “I first met Ansel in 1972 when he came to New York to discuss an exhibition of his photographs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where I worked. I was immediately impressed by his open friendly demeanor, his sense of humor and his modesty. We worked together for two years on his retrospective, and after it opened in the spring of 1974 he asked me to move to Carmel and become his assistant. I leapt at the chance, and for the next six years I worked for Ansel in his home studio. He always had a photographic assistant to help in the darkroom, so I did everything else. This included managing the sale of hundreds of his photographs – everything from telling Ansel which negative to print to approving the final mounted photograph and writing the title on the back. I also edited his writing and lectures and worked with him on innumerable books of his photographs – selecting the images, assisting with the production, and working on press to assure the best reproductions. I also accompanied him on many trips to open exhibitions and promote new books. One of my last tasks was to organize his extensive archive. It included an enormous correspondence with artists like Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Edward Weston and hundreds of his photographs made over more than fifty years–ranging from a unique 3 1⁄4×4 1⁄4inch contact print of lodgepole pines in the High Sierra made when he was nineteen years old to an enormous 40 x 60 inch mural size print of Mount McKinley made in the 1960s. In addition I produced a one-hour documentary on his life for public television.”
Andrea’s talk will be followed by a book signing of her highly acclaimed book, Looking at Ansel Adams: The Photographs and the Man.”

“Aperture Foundation and the photography program at the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design are pleased to present a conversation between artist Taryn Simon and Lisa Hostetler, McEvoy Family Curator of Photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Writing on Simon’s work, Hostetler has observed: “By highlighting the precarious and often unreliable seams between photographic imagery, textual material, and definitive knowledge, Simon’s art draws attention to habits of inference and judgment . . . . While her seductively beautiful photographs attract the eye, the accompanying texts disclose unexpected—sometimes shocking—details about the subject of the picture. Given a contemporary world rife with images and information, her work speaks to issues that affect us all.’”

“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.

Echoes of Silence: Philip Trager, Early Photographs, 1967-83
Exhibition Dates: October 12, 2012 to February 17, 2013
“Widely acknowledged as one of the foremost photographers of architecture and dance of the 20th century, Echoes of Silence focuses on Mr. Trager’s early work. Included in the exhibition are seldom seen landscape studies and photographs taken in San Francisco, Barcelona, and Paris; Mr. Trager’s celebrated architectural photographs of Connecticut and New York City from the 1970s; portraits of Mr. Trager’s wife, Ina; and several selections from an unfinished commission to document the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. These eighty-five photographs from the first phase of Mr. Trager’s career bear witness to the emergence of an artist with a fully realized vision, imbued with equal measures of technical skill and formal beauty.”
