Fragmented Reflections

F. Emmanuel Bastien

“I am drawn to the dimensional contradiction within reflections. The reflections flatten onto one plane of multiple dimensional layers that would not otherwise interact revealing a new dimension. I watch this moving canvas, the glass, what is behind the glass, the fragments reflected in the glass and what evolves in between, waiting to create a new narrative shrouded in mystery, dreaminess and uncertainty.”

Landscape Within

Tony Kirman

“These images continue my use of the Abstract Expressionist concept of the gesture as applied to photography. I removed the element of color and now explore the tonal possibilities of three dimensions animated through time. These images are mental landscapes, evidence of how this city has changed me, love poems really.”

A Frame Without a Picture (2005-2016)

Roman Makhmutov

Arkaim was a settlement in the Bronze Age that has gained wide popularity in Russia as a mystical place. Every summer, at the day of solstice, it attracts thousands of visitors looking for something special. But what is found are mostly rumors and superstitions. Everyone sees a different picture, depending on their beliefs and value systems. The project includes images of the place, portraits, interviews and artifacts from the site.

Starting with Sky

Jay Matusow

“This body of work has its genesis in the colors and shapes the sun paints in the sky at the beginning of each day. The startling beauty of these natural dawn paintings often compels me to interrupt my morning routine, to make a photograph. I’ve found that as I look at these images, I’m inspired to use my own skills to build on them, creating a collaboration of sorts between the sun and myself.”

Seena Sussman

“Twenty-five years ago, I volunteered to do portraits of residents at a facility providing food, shelter, clothing and crisis counseling to adolescents at risk. Over a period of about a year, I visited the facility once a week and collaborated with the subjects on their portraits. I had hoped that creating these portraits would help these young people gain a better sense of self-esteem and to imagine a different life. Looking at these images now, I wonder how their lives turned out.”
