Michael Ackerman: Homecoming, New York - Varanasi - Napoli
The first Neapolitan solo exhibition dedicated to American photographer Michael Ackerman, "Homecoming - New York, Varanasi, Napoli," holds in its title the sense of the visual path outlined by gallerist Cristina Ferraiuolo. The segment of the exhibition dedicated to New York, including some iconic images of the 1990s, is composed of work made by the artist during his continuous returns to the city where he grew up and developed his artistic vision. His photographs stem from a homesickness, a love of the city and a deep need to connect with its people. These emotionally naked portraits, both fleeting and posed, are of a humanity that is simultaneously dark, tender, vulnerable and even sweet. They are made with a deep empathy and affection.
Outside the Frame: Todd Webb in Africa
A recently recovered photographic series documents the compelling photographic journey of American photographer Todd Webb through nine African countries on the cusp of independence. In 1958, photographer Todd Webb, best known for his remarkable images of the everyday life and architecture of New York and Paris, as well as photographs of the American West, was commissioned by the United Nations Office of Public Information to document the progress of industry and technology in what were then nine different African nations, either recently independent or on the cusp of gaining independence in the aftermath of World War II.
Heritage Auctions Offer a Selection of Dr. Greenberg
On April 4, Heritage will offer a selection of the late Dr. Greenberg's extraordinary collection in its Photographs Signature® Auction, with the aforementioned photography luminaries on tap, and many other top lots from other consigners that bring considerable rarities, surprises, and collector favorites. This event encompasses an incredible selection of wilderness and nature photography with fourteen Ansel Adams photographs (including his masterpiece Moonrise, Hernandez), as well as three portfolios from Eliot Porter, the master of color nature photography. There's a set of cheeky (so to speak) nudes by Herb Ritts and Peter Beard, naked Marilyns by Bert Stern, a coterie of Warhol & Factory Co. and much more: a collection of photographs by one of the top British photographers, Bill Brandt, and three ultra-rare early Beatles photographs by Mike Mitchell - the intimate images that most encapsulate the Fab Four's initial invasion of America and only the second time they have appeared at auction.
Gregor Sailer: The Polar Silk Road photography exhibition opening at the Natural History Museum
Melting Arctic Sea ice is opening a channel known as 'The Polar Silk Road'. Paired with opportunities for trade and access to oil and gas extraction, conflicts are already beginning to arise over ownership and access to this newfound treasure. Gregor Sailer's new exhibition opening at the Natural History Museum from 26 May 2023, documents our complex relationship with the environment, the wide-reaching impacts of climate change and a rapidly changing world.
Alleyways by Ties van Brussel
These pictures are part of my series “Alleyways” and were shot during my visit to Hong Kong in October 2022. They reflect my fascination for nightly scenes taking place in backstreets and alleyways. I have an obsession for the involuntary aesthetic interplay between the rubbish, garbage containers, pausing kitchen personnel, and the gracious shattering of light these places harbour.
Why Instagram Reels are Important for Photographers and Art Galleries
Instagram Reels are short, engaging videos that can be up to 60 seconds long and are a great way for photographers and art galleries to showcase their work and reach a wider audience.
Stranger Fruit by Jon Henry
The composed photographs show mothers holding or leaning over their sons, as well as images of some of the mothers alone and reflective and were taken across the United States in 26 cities. Many of the images are accompanied by a brief quote from the mother. For example, "That one moment can define the rest of your life. When I wake up and before I sleep at night my son is the one person that's always on my mind - I want to know that he's safe. I feel hurt, anguish, and emotional turmoil. I recognize that this was only for a moment in time but that's actually a depiction of life -every second is a moment in time.
The Rocketgirl Chronicles by Andrew Rovenko
Award-winning images from the worlds discovered on Backyard Space Travel missions to be published as a photo book for the first time. "The Rocketgirl Chronicles" is a heartwarming personal project that follows the adventures of one little astronaut. And as she keeps exploring the neighbourhood, the child's curiosity and imagination is able to transform even the most mundane of surroundings into otherworldly and often haunting scenes.

Faces of Climate Change

Jackson Heights: Shadow and Light by Sascha Ali
The neighborhood of Jackson heights is one of the most diverse immigrant communities in New York. I remember when I moved here in 2021, it was so colorful and bustling with city life that I was a bit overwhelmed. I couldn't wait to begin documenting the life within with my camera. When I started however, I wasn't sure where I was headed. I had never done any sort of photography project before, but I knew even then that I wanted to create a book out of the photos I was slowly collecting.

The Day May Break is an ongoing global series portraying people and animals that have been badly impacted by environmental degradation and destruction. Chapter One, which was released last year, features photographs taken in Zimbabwe and Kenya in late 2020. The work in Chapter Two, which will be unveiled in October 2022, was taken by Brandt earlier this year in Bolivia.

In Search of a Path by Stefano Azario

Eveningside by Gregory Crewdson
Reflex Amsterdam is pleased to announce its first collaboration with the internationally acclaimed American photographer Gregory Crewdson. The focus of the solo exhibition, from 11 March until 6 May, is Crewdson's new series of works Eveningside (2021-2022), but spans both of the gallery's locations, and will also feature a selection from previous bodies of work, including Beneath the Roses (2003-2008) and Cathedral of the Pines (2013-2014). The visual artist is renowned for his cinematographically staged photographs
The Miracle District by Amadeusz Swierk
The story starts in a middle-sized town of Legnica, located in the southwest of Poland. It should have been unremarkable, but after World War II it had the dubious pleasure of stationing some 60,000 Soviet soldiers, who more or less dictated the town's life.
Memory Building by Annette LeMay Burke
In my series, Memory Building, I projected those vernacular photographs onto the surfaces of my childhood home in the same locations that they were originally made and rephotographed the scene. By fusing photos from the past onto the present-day walls, I unearthed six decades of engrained memories and captured my family's vanishing presence that once permeated our mid-century suburban home—the container for so much of my personal history.
