Jimmy Chin Kiu Lee (*1993) is a University lecturer, doctoral researcher, visual art practitioner and documentary photographer. He was born and raised in Hong Kong and started his photographic practice in a Hong Kong-based newspaper before completing an MFA in the UK and beginning his doctorate. Over the past few years, Lee has been researching the ideology of those from Hong Kong, who live with cultural references from both China and the UK embedded in their society. His project In Search of Nirvana is a series of vivid photographs made in western China, including pictures evoking ‘continuous roads that run through the barren land, plastic flowers in freezing winter, the concept of patriotism, the nuclear-weapon project…’ and representing the artist’s attempt to explore his uncertain connection with Chinese culture.

Sarah Louise Lordan (*1997) is a visual artist based in Ireland. A recent graduate from IADT in Dun Laoghaire, Lordan works predominantly with photography, creating thought-provoking and conceptual artworks. Her project Come As You Are consists of black and white portraits. These are close-ups of a single subject, her face filling two thirds of the frame and portraying a range of facial expressions, suggesting a range of emotional states, from rage to defiance to vulnerability, concern and surrender. Lit from above, the contrast and detail of the images are striking. For Lordan, art-making is a method of processing conflict within herself and the world around her. The artist states that her work ‘captures a cycle of thoughts and emotions that women go through when experiencing some sort of mental trigger.’

Manon Martsch (*1999) is a German artist currently based in France. She works with painting and photography and her project Blau Und Starr is formed of a series of cyanotype prints. Her photographic work displays a painterly sensitivity to line, texture and composition and is concerned with questions of rigidity and movement in the image. She says: ‘a form only becomes dynamic in relation to the environment’. Her cyanotypes vary in content, from the architectural – the angular lines of walls and windows, the curve of a building against a cloudy sky, the glow of sunlight on the facade of a residential block – to more abstract works featuring fragmented human forms and silhouettes.

Joseph Glover (*1993) graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art BA (Hons) Photography course and will begin an MA in photography at Massachusetts College of Art and Design this year.
 
He uses analogue and digital techniques in works that explore themes of the self, place, society, time and philosophy. Joseph’s project ‘Palm, 269’ is a series of pictures of a neighbouring palm tree.
His documenting of a particular place over time is made powerful by repetition, bringing to mind An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris by Georges Perec.

Maite de Orbe (*1997) works with photography, etching, video and writing to create multilayered compositions.
 
Her work ‘I took this polaroid of an angel once’ consists of hand printed silver gelatin photographs of the human form. She skillfully captures the gestures of shadow and light on skin in compositions that present beautiful fragments of bodies – fanned fingers, clenched toes, a chest, an arm, a back.
Maite graduated with BA (Hons) Photography at UAL and her work has been exhibited in London, York and Madrid.

Lucile Soussan (*1990) is currently a student at the École des beaux-arts de Paris in Éric Poitevin’s atelier.
 
She describes herself as a ‘hunter-gatherer of images’. Her practice combines photography and printmaking and is strongly influenced by Japanese contemporary photographers.
Lucile’s project ‘L’Oeuf du Monde’ comprises nine hand printed photo etchings. These evocative images were gleaned from a coastal forest in Japan, where the fleshy bristling body of a sea urchin – ‘the egg of the world’ – was spotted in a nest of stone.

ÉMILE ZOLA  –  L’ EXIL
Weybridge 1898

An exclusive exhibition of previously unseen vintage prints from 1898

Daniel Blau is pleased to present an exhibition of 19 photographs taken by Émile Zola during his period of exile in England, coming from his family and all inscribed by the master himself on verso.

Rather than thinking of Zola as a novelist who took pictures, we may instead come to view him as an artist who both wrote and made photographs. As a result of Zola’s courageous intervention in the Dreyfus Affair he spent almost a year in hiding in England. During these months in 1898‑1899 he took copious photographs in the Surrey countryside that was to be his home for much of this time. His friend (and bodyguard throughout the affair) Fernand Desmoulin having brought him one of his cameras. The photographs from Surrey depict country lanes, ladies on bicycles and the Crystal Palace, in some cases in panorama format. In Zola’s photography we see an abiding interest in architecture, machinery, the modern. In the portraits of friends and family, photographs of street scenes and still lives we see the work of a skilled technician with a profoundly visual sense of the world. It was no easy feat to capture photographs of moving bicycles, with the long exposures of the time, without blurring.

Zola was an accomplished photographer whose pictures of family members, collaborators, landscapes and street scenes evidence the same attention to detail as his naturalistic writings. Amateur photographers proliferated at the turn of the century and there is no shortage of snapshots from this era. However, Zola’s pictures of the rural England are made significant by their context. These pictures coming from the great-grandson archive are on view to the public for the first time.

50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing
Half a century since Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the Moon, the NASA photographs from the Apollo XI mission remain as awe-inspiring as when they were first seen.

Apollo XI was the first manned lunar landing. The photographs of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon are some of the defining images of the 20th century post-WWII, a time of rapid technology innovation and social change.

Jason Jacques Gallery | Moon Rock

The 1960s have once again captured our imagination— and we have a lot in common with that decade, for we have found ourselves once more in the midst of a “youthquake,” global unrest, music festivals, and a technological boom. But this upcoming exhibition is an ode to one of the most exciting moments of the 60s: the US space program.

Recalling the photos of the moon NASA then released, we see in our mind’s eye grainy and streaked images of the cratered lunar surface. Those low quality visuals were, in fact, what NASA released to avoid revealing to the USSR the imaging potential of US spy satellites, as this space race was a defining aspect of the Cold War. The actual images, at full resolution and quality, certainly live up to their role as the crux of the program which eventually culminated in the moon landing.

So, while it may be trite to say such a thing in an age of endless digital reproduction, these photographs are something one simply must see in person. To think that these images were taken five decades ago gives an entirely new meaning to the power of the mechanical gaze. The Lunar orbiter and NASA team produced these images, but inherent in their nature is some sort of inexpressible mechanical arbitration.

They raise plenty of questions about photography and the status of the photo-image as a form of mechanical reproduction. These stunning shots were produced through intricate yet effective series of steps, as follows: the lunar orbiters used an imaging system consisting of a dual-lens camera, a film-processing unit, a readout scanner, and a film apparatus, which would work together to capture the images, print them out in incredibly high resolution, scan them, and transmit them back to Earth where they were captured at three different facilities, to account for the Earth rotating as the data was beamed down. Using this data, NASA generated photo-negatives and then contact printed, using strip-negatives, some of the most picturesque and sublime silver-gelatin prints ever made, including the first-ever photograph of Earth from the perspective of the moon.

Jason Jacques Gallery is located at 29 East 73rd Street, New York, NY.

 

Moon Rock will run July 16th to October 5th | An opening reception will be held July 16th, 6 – 8 pm.
