Davis Orton Gallery presents “Farms, Farmers, Rural Life,” an exhibition of photography by Craig J. Barber and Steve Anderson from October 10 to November 9.
From Craig Barber: “I am a photographer who travels and works using antiquarian processes and focuses on the cultural landscape. During the past 20 years I have focused my camera on Viet Nam, Havana, and the Catskill region of New York State, documenting cultures in rapid transition and fading from memory. My work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America and is represented in several prominent museum and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Brooklyn Art Museum; the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; and Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Artes, Buenos Aires, Argentina, among others. I have received several grants including from the Seattle Arts Commission, the Polaroid Corporation and the New York Foundation for the Arts. In 2006 Umbrage Editions published my book, Ghosts in the Landscape: Vietnam Revisited.”
From Steve Anderson: “The photographs in Surruralism are an ongoing series exploring birth, life, death, … dreamscapes, … family, … animals, … “other worlds” in a rural setting. The images have not been “manipulated”. Everything “is” as “seen” through the viewfinder.”
The gallery also presents a portfolio showcase by Dana Matthews and Kay Westhues. At Davis Orton Gallery, 114 Warren Street.
