WORKSHOP :: Storytelling with Instant Photography

2024-04-21 · Brooklyn, United States of America
WORKSHOP :: Storytelling with Instant Photography

Instant photography may be our modern-day daguerreotype. Alone among modern day photographic processes, instant photography results in a one-of-a kind image, on the spot within minutes. Consequently, the resurgence of films such as Polaroid enable artists a unique perspective and way of working.In this two-hour workshop participants will work with artists EveNSteve (author Eve O. Schaub and artist Stephen Schaub) to explore the potential of instant photographic materials such as Polaroid and Instax to tell stories. Visualization techniques, working with the unique attributes of instant materials (exposure latitude, color temperature) and a discussion of tools that allow for additional creative control will be included.

  • Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    2024-01-15 – 2024-07-07 · Philadelphia, United States of America
    Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    The 1970s witnessed an unprecedented explosion of interest and activity around photography, and was a hub for wildly varying conceptions of what photography could look like, how it could be used, and what it could stand for. On one hand, the 1970s were an apex of traditional black and white darkroom photography, as artists who had worked in relative obscurity were suddenly thrust into the spotlight. But it was also the end of an era, as younger photographers began experimenting with mediums, formats, and conceptual approaches that defied established modes of photographic art.

  • Gordon Parks: Born Black

    2024-03-07 – 2024-04-20 · New York City, United States of America
    Gordon Parks: Born Black

    Jack Shainman Gallery is currently presenting Born Black, an exhibition of Gordon Parks’s photographs – curated in collaboration with The Gordon Parks Foundation. This presentation is inspired by the 1971 book Gordon Parks: Born Black, A Personal Report on the Decade of Black Revolt 1960-1970, which brought together a collection of essays and photographs by Parks that were originally created for Life magazine. Translating the essential themes of the text into an exhibition, Jack Shainman explains, “We seek to commemorate Parks’s ground-breaking 1971 anthology, and the enduring impact of his photographs and writing today. This exhibition is an act of expansion – presenting both seminal and lesser-known works from his renowned photographic series, offering contemporary meditations on his incisive eye and insightful prose.”
