Photography // Sunday, November 02, 2014
What makes Keegan Gibbs’ documentation of the stealthy act of graffiti so powerful is all found in his angles and execution. He is embedded in the act just as much as the artists, using readily available light sources and creatively obtainable positioning to capture his shots.

In her photographic series “Women of Power”, Polish photographer Katarzyna Majak creates portraits of modern-day witches, healers, enchantresses, and spiritual leaders from Poland.

David Dalla Venezia "Psychophagomenos" @ Burkhard Eikelmann Galerie

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 31, 2014
I first met David Dalla Venezia outside the museum that hosted an exhibition of the late pictures of Tiziano Vecellio, who is known simply as “Titian” in America.

Similarly Dalla Venezia’s family name originated from the 18th Century custom to give orphaned children a surname based on the town where they were found.

The result is strong and original, sui generis...
