Happy PhotoArt N*des—January 2012 brings the third in this new series of photography-only calendars. Selected by Joyce Pommer, founder and director of Franklin 54 Gallery + Projects, the images are powerful and polished, distinctively personal explorations of people, place and mood.
The year begins coincidentally with Sunday Night it Rained by Joseph Mays of Kentucky. Ms. Pommer, remembered Mays’ work from last year, intrigued again by his interesting process with light saying, “I like his work.” True to her word, she selected five of his pieces, the maximum allowed.
Another favorite is Guenter Knop, whose stylized black and white images take us back to polished era of Art Deco. Two of the three Knop images are retiring with this calendar, Woman in Charge and Follow, January 2 and 11, repectively. Dan McCormack, master of the pinhole camera digital print has three images in January 2012 as well. His titles are technical but start with Carling, Jess, and Lana. Peter King of New Mexico shows a variety of exporations and departures with Back to Back, Through an Old Window and Compact. T.F. McDonald of Kentucky specializes in high contrast monochomatic studies of well-composed beautiful people: Little Flirt, Orbs Amid Vertical Lines and Lydia in Gold are his images in this calendar. Long Island artist, Janet E. Gorman shows three pensive darks, the pregnant Speak to Me, The Light and Goddess.
International art is represented. Tony Lee of Panama, whose work has been a delight on Barebrush since May 2007 (with his classic winner, Manwood) has two pieces, Llantos Prohibidos and Seaman. Gabriel Sanchez of Mexico offers All Your Husbands and The Crack. Tennessee artist, Angelique Moselle Price shows Naked Sky Captain and Blind, while New York artist, Matthew Smith shows Shrouded Nude and Untitled #3 from the Smoke Series.
One other artwork in this calendar is retiring: Tokoyo Lush by Corrie Ancone of Sydney Australia.
