Project 5 Portfolio Review in NYC

Project 5 is proud to announce our first group Portfolio Review in New York City. Project 5 is a unique collaboration between Amador Gallery, ClampArt, Daniel Cooney Fine Art, Foley Gallery and Sasha Wolf Gallery that has grown out of years of friendship and shared ambitions in the photography market.

Project 5 hopes to foster a supportive environment for artists to receive constructive criticism and build an ongoing dialogue about their work with art world professionals.

After the formal reviews conclude we will have a short one hour meet and greet so that all the artists and reviewers will have an opportunity to meet each other and share contacts, ideas, etc.

To apply for Project 5’s Portfolio Review please send:
-A written description of your work
- A biography that outlines your education and professional experience.
- A link to your website, if you have one.
- 10 jpegs sent either in a zip file or attached to an email (or series of emails). The jpgs should be 100 dpi and 6 inches at the largest dimension.

Project 5’s Portfolio Review will consist of three 20-minute reviews with three of Project 5’s gallerists. Great consideration will be given to the matching of gallery owners and artists based on the strengths and experience of each. The reviews will take place at Foley Gallery located at 547 West 27th Street.

Deadline for receipt of materials for this review will be September 6th and the artists will be notified of acceptance by September 9th. A $250 check made out to Daniel Cooney Fine Art will be due by September 12th.

A Tribute to Cartier Bresson

August 22 marks the 101st anniversary of Henri Cartier-Bresson's birth. Considered by many to be the father of modern photojournalism and the street photographer's archetype, Cartier-Bresson was unparalleled at capturing "the decisive moment"—that fleeting point of time where an event hits its visual chord. As stated in his New York Times obituary, "his best photographs... are simply among the best works of 20th-century art."

Even 5 years after Cartier-Bresson's passing, his impact is still felt, influencing the way thousands—if not millions—of photographers shoot.

What image of yours best captures the decisive moment? Over the next week, we invite you to share an image that exemplifies the photojournalistic and street photography style of Henri Cartier-Bresson. We'll feature our favorites as a tribute in the sixth edition of TimeFrames.

View a portfolio of Cartier-Bresson's work on his Magnum Photos profile and read more atWikipedia or his Foundation's site. We also highly recommend the 2003 film The Impassioned Eye.

  • Send your image to timeframes@calumetphoto.com by 4 p.m. CDT August 17, 2009.
  • The photo should be taken by you and should be an example of photojournalism and/or street photography in the spirit of Henri Cartier-Bresson.
  • It is your responsibility to have appropriate permissions for the publication of the image you send.
  • Please include your name, title of the photo, the location of the image, and what gear you used to get the shot.
  • Size your image to between 600 and 1100 pixels on its longest size.
  • By submitting the image, you are granting Calumet Photographic unrestricted permission to publish the photograph in material related to TimeFrames and its promotion. You still retain your copyright privileges, however you waive rights to royalties/compensation and further approval when published by Calumet Photographic.
  • We stamp any published instances with your name and a copyright seal that is legible in the size it appears, and as such prefer images without personal watermarks.

Central Booking - focusing on Artist's books and prints

We are pleased to announce the opening of
CENTRAL BOOKING in DUMBO, a new kind of art gallery with a welcoming atmosphere, Brooklyn’s own space focusing on the art of the book!

We exhibit the breadth of the various approaches to the form, since the artist book can be anything from a pamphlet done inexpensively on a copy machine to a letterpress codex bound book integrating words and images to a sculptural piece that is an object itself. Brooklyn has taken its position as a major art center in the world and it now has a space where artist’s books from established artists to emerging ones can be seen all in one place and on a continual basis.

Leibovitz - may lose rights to images

For Annie Leibovitz, a Fuzzy Financial Picture

IF money and fame are the yardsticks, Annie Leibovitz is one of the most successful photographers of all time. She has a seven-figure salary from Vanity Fair and commands tens of thousands of dollars a day from commercial clients like Louis Vuitton. Her latest book, “At Work,” made best-seller lists, and an exhibition of her classic images — Demi Moore naked and pregnant, Mikhail Baryshnikov on the beach — has been touring the world for over two years.

Alec Soth in NYTimes

ALEC SOTH has created a photographic career out of finding chemistry with strangers. On his frequent road trips through America, he’s drawn to loners and dreamers he spots from his car; sometimes he will do several pass-bys before striking up a conversation. Often that will lead to a portrait session with his large-format 8-by-10 view camera.
