Burk Uzzle - Just Add WaterA self-described "hard puppy to keep under the porch," photographer Burk Uzzle created the images in Just Add Water by traveling across the United States with his 8 x 10 camera, capturing the vivid, celebratory, sometimes eccentric personality of the American landscape in the unique style that has become his trademark. This large-format book marks Uzzle's first major published series of color photographs.

That teeter-totter balance between logic and humor as the limb seems about to break also relates to how I strive for formally impeccable compositions but then have some loose lug nut rattling around somewhere in the frame, giving a subversive aspect to the dialogue bet...
Exhibition : Drive In at BildhalleCurated by Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, Paris and Mirjam Cavegn, Bildhalle, Drive In is an exhibition about cars, showing the approach of this subject by numerous photographers, from the fifties to nowadays.
When Elliott Erwitt, during and after the depression era, photographed those rolling dreams with his candid sense of humor and irony, cars, especially the very large and imposing ones, were already a landmark in the American landscape.

In the early fifties, when Swiss photographer Robert Frank, thanks to a Guggenheim fellowship grant, drove his car across America for two years, he had his family with him. The picture of his wife Mary and their two children, totally exhausted and half asleep in the car, is an iconic image in the history of photography.

La Galerie Esther Woerdehoff présente sa nouvelle exposition, « Drive-In »Imaginée par la Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, Drive-In est une exposition de photographies sur le thème de la voiture, montrant l’approche de ce sujet par une vingtaine d’artistes, des années cinquante à nos jours.
A l’époque de la grande dépression, les voitures, grandes et imposantes, sont déjà un symbole dans le paysage américain et Elliott Erwitt photographie ces rêves sur roues avec son sens de l’humour habituel, une certaine candeur et beaucoup d’ironie. Quand le photographe suisse Robert Frank, grâce à une bourse du Musée Guggenheim, conduit sa voiture à travers l’Amérique pendant deux ans au début des années 50, il voyage ...
Thirty Years Thirty-One Photographers
Over these past three decades, the Laurence Miller Gallery has hosted approximately 250 exhibitions, and the list of these shows reflects the evolution of photography from the classic black-and-white medium that dominated much of the 20th Century, to today's large-format color contemporary works, as well as video. The gallery takes great pride in having given many emerging photographers their first one-person exhibitions in New York City, as well as having presented many of photography's greatest masters.
Thirty Years Thirty-One Photographers offers to both the connoisseur and the novice collector many of the most famous images shown along with rare prints from the Gallery's private collection. Here is a sampling:
