This new limited edition book by collector, Barbara Levine and graphic designer, Martin Venezky, is a meditation on the camera and its complicated hold on our lives. Found and staged photos, ephemera, and all sorts of unexpected relationships are brought together and set in motion by design.




The result is an expressive mysterious album and a document of our complex relationship to both the camera and the photographic images it leaves behind.

Houston We’ve Landed! February 18 2014, 0 Comments


Unidentified Photographer, c.1970.

HOUSTON WE'VE LANDED!

We are thrilled to announce our multi-part exhibition and publication, Camera Era: Freeze Frames From A World Long Gone, will debut during the 2014 FotoFest Biennial. The festival is one of the largest photographic exhibitions in the world and our exhibit will be on view starting March 19th thru the end of May.

CAMERA ERA immerses the viewer in domestic photographs made by unidentified photographers during a time when nearly every home had a camera with film in it. The images are all from the PROJECT B Collection of vintage vernacular photographs. Along with original snapshots, we are recasting many of the images as large format prints. We are also excited to announce that the publication, CAMERA ERA, is a collaboration with San Francisco graphic designer, Martin Venezky (of Wes Anderson book fame).

We are now in residence here in Houston preparing the project and getting to know this spirited city! If you are in Houston  join us on March 19th at The Raven Grill and in late March and April at The Cherryhurst House (dates tba) for part two of the exhibition and book launch.

Stay tuned for more details about The Cherryhurst House and the exhibition, CAMERA ERA: Freeze Frames From A World Long Gone.
We are excited!
