New Haven Vet Center Exhibit

On February 21, 2017, photographs taken by New Haven based veterans were hung for the local community to view. An opening reception in the bright white gallery at Gateway Community College offered an ideal space to engage others in the art and vision of veterans, including some attending the college.

New Haven Vet Center, another strong partner in collaboration with JHP, offered an 8-week introduction to photography course to a large group of interested and invested future photographers. The vets participate with the vet center for counseling and other activities that support a healthy lifestyle as a former combat veteran. This program with JHP served as a creative outlet and safe space for veterans to reflect on individual voice and memory.

Instructed by JHP Teaching Artist–Susan Falzone, JHP board member–Randy Bourne, and New Haven Vet Center member–Bob Kukiel–the group took excursions around their immediate Orange,CT neighborhood, visited a nearby farm and practiced getting up close and personal with their subject matter.

Program Director, Afiya Williams, joined the group at the exhibit reception and was able to spend some time with New Haven Vet Center staff Gabor Kautzner and his radio show “Voice of the Veteran”. Stay tuned for access to the hour long conversation about veterans and the benefits of photography.

JHP continues to grow its partnership with agencies providing services to veterans within NYC and in surrounding communities. We are proud to work with such special individuals, hear their stories and enhance their storytelling through photography. If you’re in or around New Haven, take a quick ride over to Gateway Community College — the exhibit is up until March 5th.

JHP Program to Exhibit at Carnegie Hall

We’ve been busy this summer. One of our exciting new programs was in conjunction with NeON Arts, a program of the NYC Department of Probation in partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. Participants from each of the seven NeOn Arts were guided through an asset mapping project led by professional photographers. JHP was given the opportunity to work with the Harlem NeON Arts team and volunteer teachers Alberto Vasari and Wendy Correa focused on a “Healthy Harlem” theme with their group. Students learned more about living healthy lives and maintaining healthy relationships from visits to the Harlem Grown office and farm, New York Restoration Project Gardens (Rodale Pleasant Park and Herb Garden), Work Hard. Train Harder! (gym and personal training) and a visit from When Love Works (relationship building).

This unique photo project introduced participants to new resources in their local communities with the opportunity to create an asset map using photographs taken of each of the five found assets. The photos will be used in an interactive Google map and will be on display in an exhibition and reception held at Carnegie Hall on Monday, September 28th. This reception is free and open to the public. Funding for NeON Arts programs is provided by the Open Society Foundations and grant money was awarded to JHP for this project by Carnegie Hall.

Participants capture the greenery at Rodale Pleasant Park.

Program Spotlight: Kips Bay Library

After being introduced to a wide range of compositional elements, the active seniors at the Kips Bay branch of the New York Public Library concluded their 8-week program with a final exhibition reflecting abstract images of city life.

The ordinary became extraordinary for two hours every Tuesday as students walked the streets of Manhattan putting to practice their new lessons. The program produced a final exhibit that hangs in the Kips Bay branch community room. Participants invited friends and family to the reception and we even had a visit from Jesus Perez, representative of Manhattan Borough President Gail Brewer’s office.

The participants were a spirited bunch and are already looking forward to another program they can join.

JHP and the Kips Bay program were also featured in Town and Village bringing great local attention to the good work happening in the community. After much support from NYPL and excitement over the coming exhibit,
additional prints were made and images have been framed for the public. You can view the exhibit at the Kips Bay branch 2nd floor community room.

Photo by Donna Ferrato 

“Tribecca 91101”

By Maureen McNeil – September , 2014

Donna Ferrato is the kind of passionate and generous artists I dream of meeting. Not only is she an iconic downtown photographer with a fabulous loft and two very talented acrobatic cats, she has won many photography awards for her work on domestic violence, gender equity, and women’s rights. Having covered conflicts worldwide for two decades, she is also intent on documenting her Tribeca neighborhood, especially since the World Trade Tower bombing in 2001. This image “2 No. Moore Landmark Structure with AT&T building Tribeca 1006,” included in her book TRIBECA 91101-91111, is one of seventy-four black and white images that feel like her personal iconic space, something she has gazed upon many times. Her Tribeca photographs feel like attempts to stop, as she said, “so many beautiful things from disappearing in front of our eyes.”

I met up with Donna a second time last November at the opening of her exhibition at the Leica Gallery. She was wearing a stunning purple hat, in celebration of her TRIBECA collection, and enjoying a lively crowd of patrons.

About Donna Ferrato

Donna is a renowned photojournalist whose seminal work on domestic violence opened up – for the first time – the hidden world that people did not want to confront. The corresponding book, Living with the Enemy, Aperture 1991, went through four printing The mission of her “I am Unbeatable” campaign is to save lives, to end suffering, to lead young women away from the cycle of domestic violence to freedom. Her work was featured on the cover of Time twice and then she took the story into the White House for a private meeting with Hillary Clinton.

 Donna has evolved from her photojournalism roots and has become an artist whose subject is where she calls home. Anyone who runs across her on these downtown streets can tell you, she is seldom without her Leica.

Ferrato has been a member of the Executive Board of Directors for the W. Eugene Smith Fund; she was the president and founder of Domestic Abuse Awareness (a 501-c3) and she is now a member of Facing Change Documenting America (FCDA). Recognized many times with professional honors (W. Eugene Grant, Robert F. Kennedy Award for Outstanding Coverage of the Plight of the Disadvantaged, International Women in Media Courage in Journalism Award, Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism, and the city of New York officially declared “Donna Ferrato Appreciation Day” for her work as a women’s advocate.)

Michael Imperioli, actor, writer and TriBeCa resident, said, “Donna Ferrato miraculously manages to capture TriBeCa from two completely distinct points of view at the same time. She can stand at a distance with the objective eye of a compassionate, awestruck outsider as well as take us inside the heart of our big city hamlet with the love and care that only a native could possibly possess.”

“World Trade Study, 1976”

By Maureen McNeil – September 11, 2014

For anyone who loves architecture, the abstract lines of Minoru Yamaski are exquisite in Thomas Drysdale’s photograph “World Trade Center in 1976.”  Because Drysdale captured only the middle of the buildings, the lines look like gleaming sunlit cliffs stretching into infinity, with a dark void in between.

Yet, September 11, 2001 has colored our reaction to this photograph. Today’s lens makes the image look vulnerable, as if the buildings are tipping. The negative and positive spaces shift and as we look, the video of their collapse reruns through our minds: Drysdale’s photograph of simple straight patterns becomes a collective emotion for people around the world. He has captured one of the giants, real and fictional, that have fallen throughout human history.

 

About Thomas Drysdale

Thomas Drysdale is an associate professor of Photography and Imaging at the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU.  His work has been published in Art News, American Photographer, Photographies and L’Architecture: Sujet ou Pretext?  His photographs have been exhibited at Museum of the City of New York; Witkin Gallery, New York; Exposure Gallery, New York; Soho Photo Gallery, New York; O.K. Harris Gallery, New York; Mednick Gallery, Philadephia; Studio 666 Paris; Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; Musee des Beaux Arts, Agen, France, and many other galleries around the world.

“Angel’s Trumpet”

 

By Jackie Augustine  – September 03, 2014

 

 “All good photographs are self portraits that lie somewhere between imagination and dreams” by Elizabeth Opalenik

I love this stunning photograph by Elizabeth Opalenik.  The rich textures of the dramatic golden fluted trumpet flowers and the lighting of the blue vase gives the photo a special sense of calmness. This is an archival digital color print that Elizabeth creates using digital and traditional technology.  A perfect addition to your home, office, art collection or an amazing gift for a special friend or family member.

 

About Elizabeth Opalenik

Elizabeth Opalenik is a photographic artist who believes that all good photographs are self portraits that lie somewhere between imagination and dreams.  From her earliest days doing advertising and editorial assignments, Elizabeth has been hired for the sense of poetic grace and movement she brings to her images.  Today her voice is primarily as a fine art photographer and sought after educator for the sense of woner and possibility she creates in her sturdents.

Elizabeth privately conducts photography workshops internationally and in partnership with the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, the Maine Media Workshops, the British Guild of Portrait Photographers, National Geographic Expeditions, The Rencontres d’Arles,  and others.  With coaching through the F. Holland Day Center for Creativity and Healing, Elizabeth used photography to facilitate the healing process for women with cancer by finding their inner beauty and strength. For the past 20 years she has returned to Provence and Tuscany conducting workshops on the figure, travel and alternative processes.

Elizabeth’s heart is in her Oakland California darkroom working with Mordançage images and hand painting, but she bridges technology, mixing digital and traditional when appropriate to utilize all the creative possibilities. She uses images as stepping stones that trace where the mind has been, believing they reflect the unique vision that each of us carries through life.

Portfolios and interviews of her work have been featured in such magazines as Zoom, Camera Arts, Black and White Magazine, Silvershotz, Photo District News, Collectors Photography and Progresso Fotografico among others.  Commercial clients include Life Magazine, Gossard Lingerie, Coty Perfume,  Michael Good Design, Sea Air Holidays and ongoing campaigns for The Ladies Professional Golf Association and Nancy Lopez Golf.

“Usain Bolt Wins the Gold Medal in the 100 Meters” London Olympics 2012 

By Lauren Kupferberg – August 12, 2014

The roar of the crowd is wild. The chants of victory can be heard miles away. The race is over, but the champion remains. His smile does not leave his face.  He had won. He had once again made his dreams a reality. Although the photograph is not only of a man winning a race, but rather a man accomplishing the goals he set out to accomplish, and surpassing everyone else’s opinion of him. The photograph represents that anything is possible, if you just believe
