The Brooklyn Rail has published a review of our summer group show Tà Hierá titled A Human Kind of Holiness:
"tà hierá does more than document the vulnerabilities and longings of others—it also challenges us to contend with the same inconsolable emotion by presenting works that demand a narrative but offer none. In a series by Jed Devine, religious objects set in central focus—a bible, a skull, an organ—are severed from context, often set against a blurred or darkened background. The unnatural solitude into which these familiar objects have been cast creates an almost oppressive need to salvage their significance."
The Milwaukee Art Museum is hosting the exhibition Postcards from America: Milwaukee on view from July 10 to October 19, 2014. Featured alongside Pellegrin are ten other Magnum photographers including: Bruce Gilden, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Mark Power, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alec Soth, Zoe Strauss, and Donovan Wylie.
Photograph Magazine has published a review of Doug Hall's current exhibition at the gallery Bodies in Space:
"Across the images in Bodies in Space, people look but don't see, they're present but they're not fully there, and they inhabit a reality that seems not quite real. With a flat background and an artificially lit foreground, portraits of a "weekend cowgirl" in Stagecoach, Nevada, and a man in traditional garb at Monument Valley look like the vintage snapshots of a novelty photo studio. Places, through Hall's lens, have a similarly disorienting artificiality: in Gene Autry Rock, the scene has the appearance of a painted backdrop at a museum or zoo."
Harper's Magazine has published an article titled Karine Laval’s Eclipses, which features new work by Laval as well as an in-depth interview:
"Over the past few years, I have been increasingly interested in the process of image making — as opposed to image taking — and its relationship to surface, texture, and materiality. At the moment, I find it a more exciting and rewarding approach than “straight” or documentary photography. It allows me to experiment freely and to welcome mistakes outside of the medium’s regular conventions. It is also a more creative and instinctive process, closer to painting or collage, and it has taken me in unexpected directions."
