Gallery opening for Richard Renaldi “This Grand Show” on Thursday from 6-8pm at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery!!
"Renaldi’s new images are a meditation on the narrative power of pure landscape photography and a rereading of the American story inscribed across a damaged land. Inspired by the words of preservationist John Muir, who witnessed his absolute faith in America’s wilderness clash with the imperatives of the twentieth century, Renaldi’s new work occasions a present-day evaluation of Muir’s vision on the 100th anniversary of his death.”
Submissions due April 25th, 2014 at midnight. Please submit to Oranbegpress@gmail.com up to 5 images for consideration (sRGB, JPG, 2000 pixels). Send as a ZIP file. Also please include: Title, Series (if relevant) and your web url.
Richard Renaldi: Talk and Book Signing
Tonight! Wednesday, April 16, 6:30 p.m.
This event is free for students with ID and Members of Aperture at the $50 level and above.
Join Aperture and Richard Renaldi for a talk and signing of his new book, Touching Strangers. Working on the street with a large-format, 8-by-10-inch view camera, Renaldi encounters the subjects for his photographs in towns and cities all over the United States. He creates spontaneous and fleeting relationships between strangers for the camera, often pushing his subjects beyond their comfort levels. These relationships may only last for the moment the shutter is released, but the resulting photographs are moving and provocative, and raise profound questions about the possibilities for positive human connection in a diverse society.
On a recent trip to the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center for their annual photo book fair, we stumbled on a wonderful talk by photographer Jen Davis, detailing her recent book Eleven Years. In this 120-page full color photo book, Davis explores ideas of beauty, intimacy and self-perception….
