July 1st, Portland: Opening Reception for Jody Ake at Newspace Center for Photography

Newspace Center for Photography
In the Gallery: Jody Ake

Opening Reception: Friday, July 1, 2011, 6:00-9:00 pm
The exhibition will be up until July 31st

Jody Ake believes the portrait discloses more about the subject than what is found on the surface. The subject, either willingly or subconsciously, shows us more then they intends. The camera can see more than the naked eye, moving past our persona and catching a glimpse of who we really are.

Jody Ake creates portraits and 
landscape images using the wet collodion process. Ake is one of a handful of contemporary artists who 
have revived this photographic method, hand-mixing all of the necessary chemicals for each and every exposure.”

Jock Sturges was born in New York City in 1947. His large format images of families in Northern California counter-cultural communities, Ireland, and naturist beaches in France borrow significantly from classical periods in both photography and nineteenth and early twentieth century painting. Represented by twenty-six galleries in eleven countries, Sturges’ work can also be found in the collections of many of the world’s museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, and the Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art in Germany. He has nine published monographs to his name, including, Misty Dawn: Portrait of a Muse (Aperture, 2008) and Jock Sturges: Life Times (Steidl Verlag 2008). He currently lives in Seattle, Washington.”
