Carl Wooley

Artist Biography

Carl Wooley is a photographer based in Brooklyn, NY.  He graduated from the one year General Studies program at the International Center of Photography in 2008.  He recently completed a commission for Foam (Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam) and the Stadsarchief (City Archives) to photograph the city of Amsterdam at night.  This body of work was on display in Amsterdam this summer in an exhibition titled NY Perspectives – Amsterdam discovered by NY photographers.  Work from a previous series of night images has been selected for publication in American Photography 25.

Artist Statement

The cafe had plastic chairs set up outside, with fluorescent lights suspended above us on metal frames.  We sat next to the rose bush, drank tea and talked about nothing in particular until late into the night.  I had spent most of my time in Jordan doing much of the same, either at someone’s house, in front of a small roadside store, or beside a town well.  Between these stops, we were in the car driving down long two lane roads, passing through the occasional small village perched like an outpost on the edge of a vast frontier.  Despite the splendor of what was left behind by the Romans, the Crusaders and the Nabateans, there was the impression that humanity had just shown up or was about to fade away.

This image is from a series that continues my interest in the peripheral, where the manmade breaks down and gives way to what was before.  In Jordan, I found a landscape of biblical proportions, one that’s hard to separate from religion, history and politics.  But these images seek to step back from that grandeur, or perhaps move in closer, to find another kind of beauty in the quiet and the banal.

Occasionally, while on one of our drives, I would stop the car, walk around in the heat and dust, set up my camera, and take the picture.

Katie

Artist Biography

My first stitches were the product of an unsure toddler-wobble, head first into the side of my fathers tripod at the age of three. And so, predictably, I spent the rest of my childhood in the front seat of a Nissan pick-up, traveling and photographing the natural wonders of the south with my dad. He would quiz me on the names of various trees and flowers and play Elvis relentlessly, and I would beg him to fix the AC. My mother and my brothers would come at times, and there we would all be– hungry, tired, and sitting on a rock alongside a creek, waiting for a cloud to move, for a picture. Photography trips are the bedrock of my childhood memories. There are the memories of the places themselves– the freezing temperature and the heavy wind of a winter hike, on which I nearly lost some toes, and there are the memories of the photographs– the tranquil, powder dusted ridges that looked almost edible from the light box.It is these early impressions that are undeniably the source of inspiration for my own work. I photograph the landscape because my relationship with it and understanding of it are ever changing, as are my photographs of it.

Artist Statement

“La Mer” is a documentation of the effect that the encroaching Atlantic Ocean has had on the sand dune ecosystems of the barrier islands along the east coast and an assessment of our romanticization of islands, themselves. These islands are at once barren, rough, exposed, and incredibly fragile. Their history is amongst some of the first in the Americas, a history which, in places, is uniquely preserved as a result their general uninhabitability or by federal protection under the National Parks System. Many of them remain uniquely frozen in time– the homes of wild Spanish horses, the nearest lands to sunken pirate ships, the nesting points for dozens of rare birds. However, they are now topographically changing as a result of warming climates and rising sea levels. My photographs intend to capture these changes, not with a political perspective, but with a sense of great personal loss.

Waiting

Artist Biography

Savannah Sakry (b. 1988) is a photographer currently living in Brooklyn, New York. In 2009 she was a recipient of the School of Visual Arts Photography Cage Scholarship.  She will receive a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2010.

Artist Statement

The flight of our imagination can sometimes be disorienting. Externalized through photographs, The Land of Milk and Honey is a stage unrestricted by reality that invites us to dance with our senses. The objects and characters appear motionless because there is an unspoken vulnerability in their realm. These images are intended to be non-linear slices of wonder and brief engagements, similar to how our dreams function.

The Land of Milk and Honey is an ongoing body of work.

shika

Artist Biography

Born in Tokyo, lives in NY.

Artist Statement

I prefer suggestion over accurate description. The world is pretty chaotic, speeding up, getting louder, and more visually dense. I am interested in finding and/or creating calm shelters from storm, places where quiet solitude is encouraged and inner contemplation is possible. I like to photograph the relationships and juxtapositions between the landscape and the structure we humans place and leave behind. I am attracted the time between events, the stories that are untold, the traces of our presence. I am often captivated by trees that I meet, lights shower on me, pathways that I take. There is an endless amount of subject matter that is completely irresistible. After all, the world is a beautiful place.
