Hiroshi Sugimoto: Lost Human Genetic Archive
The Tokyo Photographic Art Museum
#Tokyo, Japan
3 September– 13 November, 2016

Hiroshi Sugimoto is an artist, based in New York since the 1970s, who uses a large-format camera to produce minutely detailed photographic series, such as his ‘Dioramas’, ‘Theaters’, ‘Seascapes’, etc., for which he has received international acclaim. In recent years he has presented exhibitions based on historical research while also applying himself to architecture, both in Japan and abroad, exerting a powerful influence in a wide variety of fields, ranging from contemporary art and architecture to design.

This exhibition will occupy two floors of the museum; dealing with the epic theme of ‘the demise of mankind and civilization’, it consists of three bodies of work: the world’s first showing of his latest series, ‘Abandoned Theater’, the first Japanese showing of his ‘Lost Human Genetic Archive’ and a new installation work entitled ‘Sea of Buddhas’, which together present the artist’s view of history and the world.

Michael Kenna: Between Mountains & Lakes
Bernheimer Fine Art Photography
#Munich , Germany
15 August – 3 October, 2015

Michael Kenna is widely recognized as one of the world’s greatest and most influential living landscape photographers. He generates the intensity of his works by a slow and accurate approach to his subjects, which is created by an extreme long exposure time with a Hasselblad. Instead of editing the images digitally he works in the darkroom with the negatives that he understands as an essential part of his work. The formats he choses are also rather unusual: his prints are rarely bigger than 20 x 20 cm.

Kenna is not interested in snapshots or the documentation of everyday life, he offers a meditative and sublime view on the world that consists of harmony and balance. In our fast-moving time he dedicates himself with a lot of patience and devotion to the act of photography in which the result is initially on the second place.

Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective
+KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser 
#Vienna , Austria
17 July – 1 November, 2015

The American Joel Meyerowitz (b. 1938 in New York) made photographic history as one of the central protagonists of New Color Photography in America during the 1960s and 1970s, next to William Eggleston and Stephen Shore. The extensive retrospective presents the photographer and the major, multi-faceted oeuvre he created over the course of 50 years. Meyerowitz’s unprecedented career began after an encounter with the photographer Robert Frank in 1962. Originally trained as a painter, he discovered his passion for photography and quickly advanced to one of the most important protagonists and co-initiators of street photography. His interest in what was happening on the streets of metropolises in America and, from 1966 onwards, in Europe as well, was captured as fleeting moments. His dynamic vision and his style became iconic for his time. He was a pioneer in the use of color film, unusual at the time, while experimenting simultaneously with black and white photography.

Shirley Baker: Women, Children and Loitering Men
+ThePhotographersGallery London
#London , England
17 July - 20 September, 2015

This exhibition is a rare chance to see the work of social documentary photographer Shirley Baker, and a portrait of the urban decline of late twentieth century Britain. 
It focuses on Baker's depictions of the urban clearance programmes of inner-city Manchester and Salford during 1961 - 1981 and the work documents what Baker saw as the needless destruction of working class communities.
Despite being the only woman practicing street photography in Britain at the time, Shirley Baker’s humanist documentary work received little attention throughout her sixty-five year career.

The 21st Century Handmade Print: Imogen Cunningham, Dae Soo Kim, Stu Levy, Michael Massaia, and Edward Steichen / George Tice
+Gallery 270
#Englewood , New Jersey, USA
May 21 – July 25, 2015

While photography is being created today at breakneck pace the world over, this show is dedicated to the stalwart practitioners of the medium that continue to create work that is accomplished with their own hands. These artists carry on the skilled traditions of creating precious objects by laboring sometimes hundreds of hours to craft a print imbued with an ephemeral beauty that can only be conveyed by a handmade photograph.

Kurt Fishback: 51 Portraits of Women Artists
Transmission Gallery
#Oakland , California
June 5 - July 18, 2015

In 1979, Kurt embarked on a body of work that he has continued through today… portraits of artists.  It spawned from the desire to share artists with the public and it escalated into a prolific and resounding series.  Kurt has had the pleasure of being reared and influenced in the company of many of the greatest American artists of our time (Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Wynne Bullock among others).  And his portraits have offered a glimpse of their realness that also brings to us and encapsulates in one photograph an understanding of their work.  “I see all sides of the story and choose not to take sides and see all visual expression as valuable if made with eyes wide open.” – Kurt Fishback.

Kurt’s new series within this larger body of work was inspired by the glaring disparity between the representation and validity of men and women artists. The vast majority of famous and well-respected artists were men when there’s an equal amount of tremendous work pouring from the hands of women.  He realized he was part of the way things were.  And now, through this body of work, wants to create a sense of balance.

The show at Transmission Gallery will consist of vintage portraits of important female artists from early on in his project juxtaposed with his growing series of portraits of contemporary female artists in the bay area.

Fireflies series by William Larson
Gitterman Gallery
#NewYork , NY
April 29 - July 2, 2015

William Larson's Fireflies series (1969–1978) were some of the earliest digitally generated works of art. Larson utilized a technology new to the time to present a dynamic way of image making that extended the vocabulary of montage.

Larson used a Graphic Sciences DEX 1 Teleprinter, a sophisticated early fax machine, which converted pictures, text and sound into digitally-generated audio signals. These signals were transmitted over a telephone line and a stylus burned the image onto a special carbon-based paper, creating a unique “electronic drawing.”  He was able to manipulate these images by altering the voltage of the output during the printing process, by moving the stylus during printing and by sending multiple transmissions to the same page, electronically layering images, text and visual representations of sound.
