Sergio Larrain: Retrospective

Sergio Larrain: Retrospective

The exhibition traces Sergio Larrain career in a mostly chronological fashion, from the abandoned children to the freer images of the satori and the drawings that occupied him for nearly thirty years. The terms he uses to describe the state of grace necessary for ‘receiving’ a good image are mystical, even spiritual, as if the images were already present in…
Guido Argentini: Argentum

Guido Argentini: Argentum

Color and texture radically influence how we perceive shapes. While looking for an innovative approach on a 1995 Miami photo shoot, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The result was as beautiful as it was intriguing– the subtly grayish tones highlighted angles and surfaces in a way that was other-worldly. Inspired by the…

Lying hidden away in Dennis Hopper’s home until their discovery months after the artist’s death in 2010, this collection of spectacular photographs, exhibited only once in 1969 – 70 at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum, is a testament to Hopper’s prolific and enormous talent behind the camera.

Alec Soth: Georgia Dispatch

Alec Soth: Georgia Dispatch

Over two sweltering, bug-swarming weeks in July 2014 the LBM Dispatch crew (superbly assisted by Stephen Milner and Brett Schenning) covered 2,400 miles in Georgia, exploring the State’s diverse landscapes, histories, and narratives that were alternately harrowing and inspiring. From the Civil War to the last beleaguered Gullah Geechee community on Sapelo Island, the result is a sort of see-sawing…

Beate Gutschow: S

Beate Gutschow: S

At first glance, the large-format black-and-white photographs by Beate Gütschow are reminiscent of authentic documentations of urban scenes: monumental architecture, decaying buildings, rusty automobile parts. Yet the images are the result of complex digital manipulation: they are montages consisting of numerous photos taken by Gütschow on her various journeys and later assembled to create a single picture. They are often…

Umberto Verdoliva: Ah-MEN

Ah-MEN is the title of a project born from the idea of focusing on a real and definable starting point (and constant reference) for an entire photographic path – to find those situations and circumstances that keep repeating themselves.
