The theme is not about just the automobile but how the automobile changed photography – Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth. The first solo photography exhibition at MOMA in 1938 – Walker Evans – American Photographs – featured mainly images Evans made on the road – driving across the country with a camera.

The automobile changed the course of photography.

So photographing from the road, the automobile, summer, road trips, mobility, travel, roadside, freedom, vacation, memory –  want to stay away from nostalgia although really hard with the theme of the exhibition.

Marvin Greenbaum | The Swamp #33 | $350, unframed $250

Marvin Greenbaum has been making photographs for the past 50 years.
Starting with a Kodak Brownie and later processing his images in a darkroom in his parent’s basement, he now has the advantage of shooting with a better camera and using advanced processing programs to create final images that reflect his varied interests.
In addition to splitting his time between Philadelphia and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, he chooses photography as a means of experiencing, capturing, and sharing memories of travels near and far.
His earlier underwater photographs were displayed in the American Museum of Natural History and the World Trade Center in New York City.
More recently, his works have appeared in galleries in Philadelphia and Cape Cod.
Ongoing projects have included a 10-year documentation of the String Bands in the annual Philadelphia Mummers New Year’s Day Parade and Carnevale in Venice, Italy.
His most recent portfolio is derived from visits to the Cypress Swamps of the Southern Bayou, represented by his image in this exhibition.
Further work can be seen on his website:   www.marvingreenbaum.com and on Instagram … @greenbaummarvin and @mummersphotos

Carolyn Hollingsworth | Marsh Rain | $325, unframed $85

Carolyn Hollingsworth lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. She spent the first couple of decades of her life, and another more recent one, in Tennessee. Other than that and a year or so in both Massachusetts and Colorado, it has been Atlanta all the way. While not qualifying her as a true Atlanta native, she is inescapably Southern. Photography has been a lifelong passion but she enjoys working in various other media. She holds BFA and MFA degrees from Georgia State University where she made a valiant effort to study everything on offer in the entire art department.

McCullers and Montalvo | Charlie McCullers and Cecilia Montalvo | Barrier Island, study no.14, Pine Island Sound, Florida | $2200.00 unframed

Charlie is a working photographer from Atlanta.  He matriculated from the University of Georgia with a BFA, and the Savannah College of Art & Design with an MA and MFA in photography.  His work continues to be published and acknowledged, most notably by the Tate Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, DC, the High Museum in Atlanta, and on behalf of the Sir Elton John Photography Collection.  Charlie also serves as principal photographer for Atlanta Ballet, a position he has held since 2000.

 

Cecilia earned her MFA in photography at the Savannah College of Art & Design, in Atlanta.  She was born and raised in Miami.  After graduating from the University of Virginia, she worked at The Phillips Collection, Smithsonian Magazine, and for Harvard University at Dumbarton Oaks, in Washington, DC.

 

This collaboration is about the condition of permanent change, as evinced in the dynamic nature of South Florida’s barrier islands. It’s built on shared thematic and process interests.  Charlie and Cecilia, in their own ways, work on the meaning of divided origins, and how mythologies of belonging operate.

London Amara | Melaleuca Wisdom | $3,500

London Amara was born in Columbus, Ohio. She lives and works there and in Bonita Springs, Florida. In 1995, she studied painting, sculpture, and photography at Columbus College of Art and Design, and in 1999 relocated to Naples, Florida. There, in addition to making and exhibiting her work, she began teaching courses in the creative use of polymer resins, metals, and oxidation processes, and on the psychology of art making. She has been a guest lecturer at the University of South Florida, and will be lecturing in 2020 at Florida Southwestern College, home of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery.

Following a car accident in 2009, Amara began to move away from biomorphic and gestural abstraction—and occasional use of handwritten text—that characterize her early work, instead producing drawings, paintings, metal sculptures, and prints that focus on the human body as form and metaphor. Currently, she is pursuing large-format collodion wet plate photography, creating intimate black-and-white portraits and haunting images of the wooded landscapes of Montana, Colorado, Florida, Ohio, California, and British Columbia. Additionally, Amara is creating a book scheduled for publication in 2020, and her exhibition, Ethos: The Alchemy of Spirit and Light will begin a national museum tour in 2021.

Houck Medford | Pink Beds | $350

Medium: Platinum on pigment archival print

Description: The “Pink Beds” is a remote shallow valley in the Pisgah National Forest (North Carolina).  The name is derived from the visual proliferation of pink and orange color every spring from the native azaleas.  The photograph was taken early morning from the Pounding Mill Overlook (Milepost 413) on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
