Our friend and former intern Alex Thebez dropped by with a beautiful monograph of his work, printed by Conveyer Arts.
Of the book he says:
“When We are Together” is a documentation of my contrasting personal relationships: my family in Singapore and my recent partner in New York City. The images in the series attempt to juxtapose a sense of disconnect and intimacy. Having lived alone since I was 14 years old, I spent the majority of my teen and adult life on my own. I had been in a relationship with Jesse not long after I moved to New York City in 2009. Coming from a rather conservative Christian Indonesian-Chinese family, homosexuality is not the desired preference. Awkward and uncomfortable, the images from the two facets of my life grapple together to create an intimate narrative. This project is a means to reconcile my detachment from my family with an intimate detail of my personal life that they have yet to discover.

This week we feature Brooklyn-based photographer and educator Sara Macel, particularly selections from “Kiss + Tell”. She received her BFA in Photography and Imaging from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2003, and currently teaches at Rockland Community College. Sara began this project by collecting stories from strangers and friends that stemmed from the same simple prompt: Tell me a story about a kiss.
She collected and tape-recorded them under the condition that the storyteller remains anonymous. Each photograph was shot with the same camera and lens, and each resulting image lacks any physical human presence. Her goal was to create a “portrait” of the space.
Sara adds: “And yet, in the years that have passed since completing this project, I discovered another truth. Often the setting and circumstances behind a kiss stand out in one’s memory most vividly because each kiss has been shared with the same person. The space was the variable, because that person was the constant.”

This week we feature the work of Moscow-based photographer Sonya Kydeeva, particularly her series Boys of Russia. This is an ongoing project and has been shown, in part, by German publication Radius.
Of the series Kydeeva says:
When we started this project – we did not have clearly defined objectives. As an observer, We’ve just wanted to make a visual slice of that part of russian life, which is hardly visible in the center of Moscow, but on the edges and the length of the small towns, is a true portrait. This is a world in itself. And immersed yourself in it, we saw the inner and outer landscapes.
These landscapes are not only lost, they are mutilated: forced austerity, ruin and desolation are combined with the mystique of Russian orthodoxy and the ghosts of Soviet communism.

Remarkable master of nature’s colors is on view at OHWOW from April 18.
OH WOW Gallery is pleased to announce David Benjamin Sherry’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, Wonderful Land, on view from April 18 through May 17, 2013. With this exhibition, Sherry presents a new series of analog photographs taken over the course of several months while he travelled through the Western and Southwestern states, recording scenes of the American landscape, in exceptional detail. Through a painstaking darkroom process, Sherry transformed these photographs of national parks, monuments, and familiar panoramas into impossibly chromatic and passionate renditions of the country.
Opening reception Thursday, April 18, 2013 7-9p.m.
Address: 937 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90069
