Multiple Images of a Complex Nature
“Environment sustains us as Creatures, Landscape displays us as Cultures.” D.W. Meinig

Chaddy Dean Smith says, "The dictionary defines “Landscape” as that stretch of country as seen from a single viewpoint.

This project started out with me standing in a large room with three separate windows on the same wall. 

I noticed that when standing in front of the middle window I had three different views of the same scene form the three different portals. 

Then when I moved in front of one of the side windows I had yet three more different sets of views of that same scene. 

It is common knowledge that if you change your viewpoint in the landscape you will see the same scene differently. But what if you put those different single viewpoints together as a series of photographs? I began to reconstruct the landscape by using this concept.

I did this by putting three or more photographs together, which at first glance looks like a panorama. But by taking a closer look at the foreground, background, or even the edges of the frame, the viewer notices that they are not always a continuous landscape shot in panels but different parts of the landscape pieced together.

This “Process” helps me to express my point of view about Landscapes, Cityscapes, and even Marketscapes, by photographically compressing or expanding and reassembling reality as I see it."

Chaddy Dean Smith, a student of photography for over 30 years, is a professor teaching photography at Texas A&M University in   Commerce, Texas.

Previously he served on the University of Oklahoma’s School of Art faculty for thirteen years. He has over 30 years of experience in both the applied and fine art fields of photography, has taught photography for over 25 years and has conducted many workshops, including a pinhole workshop at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Spain.

Mr. Smith has exhibited nationally and internationally in many solo and group exhibitions. His work has been chosen for the Texas Historical Foundation Exhibition, and by the Southeast Museum of Photography, Daytona Beach, FL for “Reverberations: Diptychs and Triptychs from the Southeast Museum of Photography” exhibition and for its permanent collection. 

Mr. Smith is best known for his ongoing photographic study of the American landscape and has won many awards.

STUDY 08 by Constance Halporn
(Click on image for larger view)

Constance H. Halporn says, of her series, 
“THE ENDLESS ENIGMA OF THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY”, that it evolves from my philosophical consideration of the often paradoxical dualities revealed in everyday objects.  

My work derives from three distinct groupings; animals, plants and human-made objects. By juxtaposing divergent and peculiar images in pairs, I create mysterious collisions of meaning.
 
I approach the process systematically evaluating each synthesis to see if they blend into a single photograph greater than each frame on its own. The image pairings reveal to the viewer, puzzling and irresolvable associations between opposing ideas: ancient/modern, visceral/cerebral, real/synthetic,emergence/disappearance,solid/gelatinous."

Constance H. Halporn is a photographer and videographer who specializes in a range of fields, including Medicine, Thanatology, Kodokan Judo and Fine Arts.
Her photographs have appeared in numerous medical presentations for The Columbia University Medical Center.
 
The Center for Thanatology in Brooklyn used her photographs to give life to various exhibitions, including: “Ching Ming,”featuring Chinese burial customs;
“Lay Body Down,” an exhibition on Black burial customs; and “Vox Populi: Memorials by The People,” an interactive exhibition of spontaneous public memorials after tragedies.  

Her photos taken after the 9/11 disaster all around the City of New York were the cornerstone of that exhibit.
 
Constance’s photographs have graced the pages of USA Judo’s journal US Judo Times, and she was the official photographer for the American-Canadian Judo Challenge, a major international Judo tournament held annually in Buffalo. 
 She was also the official photographer for USA Judo at the Atlanta Olympics.

Her work has taken her across the globe, videotaping the World Championships
for Judo in Barcelona, Spain for USA Judo, and returned the following year to shoot the Barcelona Olympic Judo competition.
 
After years as a corporate, medical, and event photographer, she returned to her first love, Fine Arts photography. She received her MA in multimedia production in 2007 and the MFA in 2015 in Media Arts with a concentration in Photography both at Long Island University, Brooklyn, New York.

BOATYARD STREET by C.E. Morse
(Click on image for larger view)

C E Morse was born in Camden, Maine:
Graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Photography
after studying with Paul Krot and Aaron Siskind; further studies @ the Maine Photographic Workshops (now Maine Media Workshops) and the Maine College of Art.

C E now lives in Cumberland Center, Maine and travels widely hunting and photographing wild art: details of found objects and roadside discoveries.
 
C. E. Morse says, "I create and share my work to encourage more exploration and awareness of the world around us; the appreciation of the history and mystery of what is hidden in plain sight and often ignored. 

Often my images are abstract and hold many levels of interest:
• composition, texture, color
• unspoken history of random events that created & changed the subject matter,
which can only be guessed or imagined
• wabi sabi: a Japanese aesthetic that derives from imperfection and transience;
 Including a component of honoring the stage of decay in the Great Cycle of Nature, as well as birth, flourishing, and death. 
• interpretations expressed by viewers' imaginations. While the shots are straightforward, they are contrary:
• they are abstract, yet actual found objects.
• the subjects as a whole are generally considered ugly, for example; a dumpster, but when taken out of context can be
 beautiful and visually stunning.
• These objects have changed slowly over many years to get to the point at which I find them, but despite seeming permanent & static, they can (and do) rapidly change or disappear. I often capture them days
before they vanish. My photographs are frequently all that is left."

KISS THE SKY by Dan Kaufman
(Click on image for larger view)

Dan Kaufman says "A photograph often begins with what we cannot see, but feel …an image in the photographer’s mind’s eye. And with this feeling comes a sense …a sense of whats and whys.  I often find myself contemplating, day dreaming if you will, a folder of images, wondering why did I take this photo and “all of a sudden” one image reminds me of a feeling from another.  

Pairing these image feelings gives me a feeling too of collaboration.

Different points of view with a feeling of companionship. Photos that are like friends: similar but different.  And with this “joining of hands” a diptych of images brings to me a synergy, a feeling stronger than any one or the other."

Dan was born in 1952 the son of an artist, and like many passionate artists and photographers began his love affair at an early age: working a paper route so he could buy a camera…his first exposure to a darkroom in a converted a guest bath…and growing up just 5 miles from Disneyland —Walt taught him the magic of the story. Then there was Frank Lloyd Wright, Kandinsky, Rothko and Jackson Pollock—muses all.

Dan entered his first professional juried competition in 1965, at Bowers Museum in southern California, and was accepted.  His work at that time, as a painter, was abstract expressionism —think of melding Pollock’s angst with Rothko’s form, his sense of place. 

By the late ‘90’s and into the early noughts Dan’s work became more minimalist and he was known for a time as Daniel Scissorhands due to his propensity to cut out what he did not want. This trait, as well as painterly—and at times, sculptural has become characteristic of Dan’s photography.

Dan’s photography is in collection at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and the Chinese-American Museum (Los Angeles).

AVALONIA 62 by Deborah Bai Lannon
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Deborah Bai Lannon says, "Avalonia" – a scientific term - denotes a post-volcanic micro continent that formed approximately 400 million years ago along the northeastern coast of the U.S. and the western part of the Great Britain. Remnants of Avalonia can still be seen along the New England shoreline.

My most recent project  – a series of diptychs - focuses on the light, geology and spiritual presence that can be found on the shores of Cape Ann, Massachusetts. It’s against this elemental backdrop of infinity and erosion that I find collective human memories are innocently stamped, erased and stamped again. We leave our marks on the sand, the sea and the rocks; they leave their marks on us. And in the end – only Avalonia endures."

Deborah Bai-Lannon is a Boston-area photographer. Her work has been exhibited in both the United States and in Europe. Specializing in the use of natural and available light, Bai-Lannon focuses on revealing the extraordinary and the unusual in everyday places.  She holds a BFA in photography from Rhode Island School of Design, and a Masters in Teaching (Photography) from Rhode Island College.

GLISTEN DIPTYCH by Debra Achen
The rushing water glistened as the waves pulled it over the sand
(Click on image for larger view)

Debra Achen says, "As a photographer, I am attracted to the underlying structure of things, and to the way the forces of nature – Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Gravity, Light, and Time - imprint the material world with their magic.

Some of my images border on the abstract. By extracting, isolating, or separating out" a certain element of a photographic subject, it becomes simplified to a more basic, fundamental form.

My “Mixed Vantage” portfolio explores the human experience of spatial perception. Our field of vision at any given moment is limited to one position and orientation in space. Turn slightly in any direction and it changes. These studies involve capturing multiple perspectives of a space within a single photograph.

Other work examines the relationship between objects, space, time, and light. Slow-capture images blur the borders between objects and the space that surrounds them. Movement of the subject or the camera adds the element of time, creating a more impressionistic interpretation of the subject. 

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, my passion for art began at a very young age. I moved to California to complete my BA in Visual Arts and for a number of years, painting and mixed media were my preferred creative mediums. Then the gift of a digital camera rekindled my love of photography. This coincided with a move to the scenic Monterey Peninsula, an environment that inspires my work today."

ANGEL by Elena Mudd
(Click on image for larger view)

Elena Mudd says, " I do many portrait sessions and I became interested in how much portraits say about a subject. And how does that change when the viewer is presented with two portraits of the same subject. How does it change when they are two opposing views of the same person? How does one portrait inform the other?"

Brooklyn based photographer Elena Mudd
explores the relationship between individual and social identity from a feminist (or humanistic) perspective. The intimate portrait, conceived as collaborative process with her subject, is her specialty. 

Her subjects range from family members to strangers she meets on the street. She works with film media, both  35mm and medium format, and with digital.

Career Highlights:

Exhibiting work at FXFOWLE x A Women's thing "All Women" photo show.
Photographing the first Women's March on D.C. for Atelier Doré

DEERFIELD ROAD by Gary Beeber
(Click on image for larger view)

Gary Beeber says, "I grew up in the Midwest in the 1950’s and some of my earliest memories are of drawing pictures.

When I was 12 years old my parents bought me a little camera and I actively started taking photos.   

As I grew up I became aware of the work of Edward Hopper, Eugene Atget and Diane Arbus. I attended the University of Cincinnati and Miami University where I trained as a painter and also studied design and photography. 

Influential in shaping how I see was the drawing class taught by Jack Potter, Drawing and Thinking, at SVA (New York City). He demanded we students see beyond the obvious and to be active interpreters of what we see. This dictate has been a major influence in my pursuit as a photographer.  I perceive myself as a hunter/gatherer, I engage with my world, led by my curiosity.  

Prior to my work in photography, my career has included graphic design consultation and design of books, posters and catalogs for major arts institutions in Manhattan including the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. I provided similar services to the photography organization Aperture.  

I produced 3 documentary films which screened at over 75 film festivals.  My documentary “Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque” led to my producing the off-Broadway show Gotham Burlesque at The Triad Theater, NYC.  I have always been curious about the choices individuals driven to self-expression make.

The world of burlesque performers challenges assumptions and perceptions of gender, sexuality and the pursuit of pleasure. This art form melds theater, performance, dance and comedy. It’s historical roots are based in satire and vaudeville.

My pursuit to celebrate those who live outside convention remains a constant and my guiding artistic force."

Gary Beeber is an award-winning American photographer/filmmaker who has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe. 

Solo exhibitions include two at Generous Miracles Gallery NYC and "Personalities" (summer, 2017) at Griffin Museum of Photography, Winchester, MA.  Beeber’s work has also been included in juried exhibitions throughout the country.  Among Fortune 500 companies who collect his work are Pfizer Pharmaceutical, Goldman Sachs and Chase Bank.

THIS IS THE SIGN, 1 by Georgina Campbell
(Click on image for larger view)

Georgina Campbell says, "This is the sign you’ve been looking for A literal sign discovered in a ‘fish and chip’ shop in Moscow revealed itself over the peak of a steep side street inspiring the title and the intention of this body of work. 

Created in February and March of 2018 during an artist residency in St.Petersburg, Russia, this collection of images was inspired by wandering the streets trying to photograph the urban landscape after working extensively in the wild empty landscapes of Iceland previously.

Images paired like a storyboard or single images appearing like cinema stills create visual anecdotes about the idea of ‘signs’ or receiving messages from the universe. 
St. Petersburg and Moscow were a treasure trove of magical sights and visual gifts that may seem mundane to a local but fascinating to the visitor.

Most places are captured or documented in the most compelling way through the eyes of a foreigner  and I was most fascinated by the very ordinary details of the city streets. Architectural details covered in icicles and the way nature makes itself present even in the urban landscape, bird footprints in the snow or big winter clouds competing for space with the industrial smoke clouds on the horizon. 

Ancient glass windows in many of the buildings created magical polarising effects when viewed through the camera lens creating a view you can truly only see via photography.

This collection of new work invites the viewer to invent new meanings and narratives for the works which continue my creative explorations in autobiographical photography, new landscapes and using the camera to reveal acts of magic not visible with the naked eye."

Georgina Campbell is a photographic artist with an interest in exploring the photograph as a sculptural object, building her own cameras and experimenting with landscapes.

Winning Best Documentary Work at the Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne) in 2015, she has been a finalist in numerous art prizes in Australia including the Perth Centre for Photography CLIP Awards (2016 & 2017), MAMA Art Foundation National Photography Prize (2016), Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award (2014), Alice Prize (2014), and the Monash Gallery of Art Bowness Prize (2010).

Internationally, Georgina has been shortlisted in various exhibitions including the Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition (UK), and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, USA.

Her solo exhibitions include Open Your Mind – Tread Softly, held at the Bayside Arts & Cultural Centre, Melbourne, in 2015 and The Grandfather Paradox, at the Queensland Centre for Photography and the C3 Gallery, Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne both in 2009.

In the past, Georgina was the founder and director of the Obscurity Pictures Gallery Space in Melbourne, Australia and founded The Plastic Photo Show, an annual open entry photography exhibition for plastic lens and toy cameras, and authored The Plastic Photo Show – The Book a book celebrating the artists who had participated.

She has also been a guest lecturer multiple times at universities around Melbourne, speaking about her scanner cameras and her practice as an artist.

GIRAFFE by Gregory Berg
(Click on image for larger view)

Gregory Berg says, "This an ongoing project that explores the poetic use of dual imagery, using a series of diptychs. 
 
I recently returned to writing poetry and learned again the importance that metaphor has in my creative writing. 

My goal in this photography project is to extend the idea of metaphor to pairs of photographs.  I want to create a likening between two otherwise disparate images.

How can one image be like another image even when the content is different?  How can I use visual language to express contrary effects, while also giving some amusement to the viewer?

I believe that we make sense of the world by comparing, and by referring back to things we’ve seen before. 

I make associations and look for familiarity.  With this in mind I have put images into a relationship-- call it visual matchmaking.  The pairing affects the meaning. 

I’m implying a connection that did not exist at the time I shot the individual photographs. I’m hoping for an associative response from the viewer. 

Maybe some cognitive dissonance at first, but then followed soon by a kind of comfortable recognition, a new-found familiarity in the paired attributes.

The diptych format is dynamic with my eyes constantly moving back and forth looking for connections and relationships. I naturally read the attributes in the images looking for similarities.  In some prints, I’m aiming for contradiction.  In others, I’m striving for absurdity, or encouraging long viewing or meditation. 

To summarize, I am exploring concepts of duality and metaphor by having each image in a pair be in dialog with a visual companion."

Gregory Berg is a writer, photographer, and book artist living in New Haven, Connecticut and Santa Fe, New Mexico   His photography has been exhibited in the River Street Gallery, the Hines Gallery of the Creative Arts Workshop, the Mill Gallery at the Guilford Arts Center, and the Carriage Barn Arts Center. 

He has published several books including most recently “the hiker and the blaze”, a series of poems and images on the journeys through life.

UNTITLED NO. 1 by Jack Toolin
(Click on image for larger view)

Jack Toolin says, "Lower East Side in Flux" portrays young residents, visitors, cultural nomads, who have come to this neighborhood to linger in its history, to take up the creative mantel, or simply chill.

They’ve arrived at a time when the Lower East Side is undergoing gentrification, as is much of the city. It’s seen an influx of new coffee shops, boutiques and galleries that compete with the older tailor shops, hair salons and Chinese restaurants.

As an urban flâneur I find and photograph remnants of the neighborhood’s past in the nooks and crannies of doorways, the backsides of buildings, the side streets that have yet to be consumed by change. These views of the neighborhood, of its people and materiality, are combined to generate possible connections for contemplation.

Juxtaposing portraits with these neighborhood details initiates associations between eras, cultures and possibly worldviews.

Change is inevitable, especially in a dynamic city such as New York. But change can speed up or slow down depending on larger forces: economics, politics, mobility and so on.

We often do not see the change that is happening around us because we’re caught up in the middle of it, or possibly (probably) because we are the makers of change ourselves.

Capturing this change with photography-its actors and it physical manifestations-allows the viewer to pause and observe, to reflect and speculate, or to simply enjoy the details of a neighborhood with both a vibrant history and a thriving present."
 
Jack Toolin is a transdisciplinary artist who works both independently and collaboratively. His work is conceptually driven and comments upon the relationship between individuality and collectivity. His work has been exhibited internationally at venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2002 Whitney Biennial - as a member of C5, a new media collective); San Francisco Camerawork; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; the Museo Nacional de Bellas Arte, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The Project Room at the Chelsea Museum of Art, New York City, and more.

Toolin studied photography at Ohio University under Arnold Gassan, and received his MFA from San Jose State University, where he worked with Barbara De Genevieve as advisor.

Prior to, but even more-so during his graduate studies, his practice expanded to include performance and installation art, and subsequently New Media art.

He is a founding member of the New Media collaborative C5 (1997-2007), whose work explores big data, artificial intelligence, geo-positioning technology and other computer related fields.

He is currently working on several projects, all of which are photographic, and all consider the social-political impacts of macro economics upon individuals and social relations.

One example is Continental Drift, which utilizes digital post processing to make minimalist images featuring figures isolated in color fields, and often accompanied by text-poetic prose-that draws connections between psychological states and economics.                                                                                                                      
 I am currently an adjunct professor at New York University and Pace University, where I teach photography, digital design, illustration and web design. My teaching career extends far beyond this."

Career highlights – Along with a presence in various print and group show projects, 2018 saw James Whiting hold his breakout solo exhibition at Melbourne’s 222Rosslyn Gallery with his inter-disciplinary work 'Everyone else attended some secret lesson and you had a dentist appointment that day or were somehow not invited’ which can be viewed here.

3 HOLE WINDOW by Janet Neuhauser
(Click on image for larger view)

Janet Neuhauser first studied photography in Seattle.  She was hooked, and thirty years later, she is still hooked.

In 1980, she moved to NYC to study photography. She  renovated a house in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn and supported herself as an editorial photographer while getting a MFA in photography at Pratt Institute.   

In 1986, she began teaching at International Center of Photography and taught there until she moved from New York in 1991 to the Pacific Northwest.

Since, she has concentrated on two things:  making photographs and teaching photography.  

She has taught in a wide variety of institutions public and private and has exhibited nationally and is in many collections.   

She is primarily a pinhole photographer these days and shoots the color landscape on 4 x 5 film and directs The Pinhole Project (thepinholeproject.org)

A statement about the work:  "I am primarily a pinhole photographer and I love diptychs though I have not ever shown any that I have made.  

For this call I made several diptychs out of my pinhole images:  one is a 3 hole can that I exposed in both directions on the windows of my studio; one is the same windows with the curtains closed of a globe on a brass cup and the curtained windows;  the last one is a pinhole of my patio and out the front window of my studio.  

All are long exposure pinholes on paper (black and white multigrade fiber), exposed for at least one month.  

The negatives are scanned and printed from Photoshop.  The images are unaltered. For some reason, they come in as color images when scanned in RGB mode.  Putting two long exposures together as diptychs creates a new sense, for me, of what they are saying."
