Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen by Erica Simone

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
We have for the last few months tried to figure out who created the "Nue York" series of photographs, and when researching some titles in the Taschen catalog, we came across the name: Erica Simone. And then further research came the realization that she was the one behind this great series of photographs, and we knew the concept was something we wanted to learn more about, and she had a full statement on her site. . . 

Chris Brunkhart: Borderless Space @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Encinitas

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Chris’s time in New York City was spent in borderless space. I’m not speaking here in terms of NYC being a hub for global culture and commerce, although it is surely borderless in this respect, too. Rather, his stint in New York City was time spent organizing form, light, meanings, objects, enduring histories and fleeting moments. All of which, more often than not, seemed to present themselves as if melded together without any division between these concepts, without clear distinction between “this” and “that.”

Interview: Janet Delaney "South of Market" @ de Young Museum, SF

Photography // Thursday, March 26, 2015
Hurricane Katrina drenched, decimated and maybe resuscitated New Orleans. The Big Three abandoned Detroit, leaving a place struggling for structure and street lights. A room in San Francisco will buy a house in another urban center. The dynamics of cities is measurable and personal, and Janet Delaney’s South of Market, currently on view at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, documents her firsthand experience as a resident and keen-eyed photographer during the 1970s and ’80s

"A Tented Sky" by Kristen Hatgi Sink

Photography // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
In her series, A Tented Sky, photographer Kristen Hatgi Sink plays with the notions of youth, fragility and beauty. Taking the title from poet Edna St. Vincent Millay's piece "Renascence", a piece about a the cycle of life and death, Sink's work addresses a fantasy of feminine sexuality, spanning from adolescence to adulthood.

Never Before Published Photos of Studio 54 by Hasse Persson

Photography // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
In 1977, at the height of the disco craze, a club opened at 254 West 54th Street in New York City. Studio 54 was—and, arguably, remains—the world's most renowned and legendary disco. Regularly attended by celebrities such as Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Debbie Harry, Grace Jones, Michael Jackson, Calvin Klein, Elton John, John Travolta, Brooke Shields and Tina Turner, the club fostered an atmosphere of unadulterated hedonism for New York's art and fashion set.
