Program Spotlight- S:US Knickerbocker Veterans

Knickerbocker Participants with Volunteer Photographers

Yesterday, veterans from Services for the Underserved (SUS): Knickerbocker Housing culminated their photography program with an in-house photography exhibition. Over the last eight weeks, the small but dedicated group traveled with cameras in tow to various Brooklyn locations learning from JHP volunteer photographers Nousha Salimi and Vik Gupta. On their final meeting, the vets erected their own showcase of photography and accompanyingcaptions. The exhibition comprises photos representing their trips to places like Prospect Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Opportunities to engage photography and communicate with the outside community are necessary for our veteran groups, especially those in shared housing. “This is good for us,” says Israel, resident and participant, “to leave here and see something different. We need it.” The mission of JHP is to support groups like the veterans at Knickerbocker by offering programming that contributes creativity, positivity and new experiences into their lives. This was the second program collaboration between JHP and S:US.

Even more exciting, JHP received an award from the NEA to support teaching artist Nousha Salimi in her photography practice and work in the social justice community. Nousha’s work and the veteran’s photos will reach a larger audience in an exhibition on the Lower East Side from June 22-25.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how NEA grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov

TwinLeaf By Amanda Means

 Retail Value: $2400

Minimum Bid: $1200

Dimensions: image size 22 x 18” paper size 24 x 20”

Year: 2013

Edition: 2/20

Description:  Gelatin Silver Print made by hand in a traditional black and white darkroom. I grew up on a farm close to nature. Everyday I observed the changing seasons and weather, the shifting light on the fields and in the woods. After moving to the manmade setting of New York City, I deeply missed being surrounded by the natural world. As a result, I began photographing vegetation- Leaves and flowers. This obsession has stayed with me for the last forty years.

I do not used a camera to photograph these forms. The images are made by the plant form being placed in the head of an enlarger, on a piece of glass. Light passes through both the vegetation and the lens to the surface below. The light in these photographs seems to emanate from deep inside the image, in much the same way as light comes from within the accumulations of paint in a painting.

Twinleaf, known scientifically as Jeffersonia Diphylla, is an uncommon spring wildflower which grows in the rich deciduous woods of eastern North America. I found this twinleaf in the woods surrounding Beacon, NY. I pressed and dried the leaf and then printed it by hand on gelatin silver paper in my traditional black and white darkroom using several chemical baths in large trays.

Bio: Means has had an extensive career of teaching and exhibiting. Her work is in the following selected collections: Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; MIT List Visual Arts Center, MIT, Boston, MA; Akron Art Museum, Akron, OH; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; Avon Collection of Women Photographers, NYC.

Noire et Blanche by Man Ray featured in JHP Modern Masters of Photography Auction

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Noire et Blanche by Man Ray

Retail Value: $4000

Minimum Bid: $1800

Dimensions: 16 x20

Year: 1926/ printed by trust 2014

Edition: n/a printed by trust

Description: Man Ray originally made this photograph for French Vogue. Upon first glance at the photograph as published in the May 1st, 1926 issue it appears to be entirely gratuitous. The photograph is alone on the page with the title, ‘Visage de nacre et masque de ébène’ (mother of pearl face and ebony mask) and only a brief poetic text about the evolution of the species being led by women. It is not an article about make up or hair styles, nor is it about African art or the photography of Man Ray. But that is precisely the point. Man Ray was a fashionable photographer. The magazine had already prepared their readers by publishing an article about him and his photograms. The model, Man Ray’s lover Kiki, with her pearly white complexion and oval face literally embodied the height of current style. Vogue and other fashion magazines of the time were full of illustrations of the long oval face, even women’s clothing store mannequins, as witnessed in some of Eugène Atgets photographs, had the elongated face, not that different from the stylized faces in Modigliani’s canvases. To mimic the shape and contrast its color, Man Ray used the West African Baoule mask. African sculpture was popular and inspirational to artists since at least the beginning of the century. By the mid-20s, interest in African art and culture had reached a broader public. This fascination reached a peak with the opening of the Exposition Coloniale de Paris in 1931 where most of the Bois de Vincennes was filled with pavilions devoted to the various colonies. Man Ray was confronted with the problem of juxtaposing the two faces. He tried at least two other versions which are less successful. More of Kiki’s body is visible in both variants thus distracting from the essential form of the two heads. By placing Kiki’s head prone on the table top it recalls some of the sculptural heads by Brancusi resting on a pedestal. Brancusi was a friend of Man Ray and even studied photography with him for a while.

“Seeing Montana” by Robert Farber

“To me this image has special meaning. It’s an image of someone I was very close to. She took me back to her roots in Kalispell, Montana and that’s where I captured her amongst the land where she was raised. Not only is it a special gallery image, but it’s also in my book ‘Natural Beauty, Farber Nudes'”  By Robert Farber

About Robert Farber

Robert Farber’s global recognition has been established through his books, fine art exhibitions, lectures, TV interviews and award winning advertising campaigns. All in the genres of fashion, beauty, and life style.

Robert Farber’s style has influenced generations of photographers. His painterly, impressionistic style captures the essence of composition in every genre, including nudes, still life, landscapes and architecture. His ten photo art books have sold over half a million copies.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis brought Farber into Doubleday for the publication of his book “By The Sea,” which won the Art Director’s Award for color photography. Aside from numerous creative awards, Robert Farber also received the Photographer of the Year from PMA (Photographic Manufacturers Association), ASP International Award from the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and The American Society of Photographers. This award was given to those who’ve made a significant contribution to the science and art of photography. Some previous recipients of this award include Dr. Edwin Land (inventor of the Polaroid), George Hurrell, and National Geographic.

Farber’s work with nudes in fine art as well as in the commercial realm is known and respected. He has lectured for Ogilvy & Mather on the “Nude in Advertising.” ASMP requested to use Farber’s nudes as an examples of the artistic application in support of the National Endowment of Arts, after its backing of the controversial Mapplethorpe/Serrano exhibit. His book, “Farber Nudes,” was also included the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis estate collection.

Farber’s fine-art photographs have been published in virtually every form. Farber has exhibited in galleries and museums world-wide. He’s lectured at the Smithsonian Institute, The George Eastman House, as well as Universities and professional groups throughout the United States, Japan, Australia and Europe. Aside from his fine art photography, Robert Farber’s work encompasses major campaigns for fashion, beauty and advertising, as well as directing for TV and film. A documentary highlighting Farber’s life and career, is in development for PBS.
