Les Transphotographiques 2016These Americans
Après le succès des Transphotographiques 2014, qui parcouraient les réalités du territoire Français, le festival revient en 2016 au Tri Postal de Lille. En 2016, les Transphotographiques «These Americans » proposent plusieurs regards sur les Etats-Unis et le monde : ceux de grands photojournalistes, comme ceux de jeunes artistes moins connus, présentés dans des monographies ou dans des expositions collectives.
La confiance de grandes institutions culturelles comme la Maison Européenne de la Photographie, le Jeu de Paume, le Magazine Photographie.com avec la Bibliothèque Nationale de France, tout comme celle de L’international Center of Photography de New York, permet d’offrir aux visiteurs un moment de curiosit&ea...
Exposition : « IN CAMERA: AMERICAN LANDSCAPES » de JOHN CHIARA
John Chiara (américain, né en 1971, vit et travaille à San Francisco) repousse les limites du médium photographique par son choix de procédé et la maîtrise de ses possibilités. Son approche se distingue par son incroyable matérialité et rappelle les prémices du médium photographique, lorsque les artistes étaient confrontés à un équipement lourd et peu pratique, demandant de longs temps d’exposition ainsi que de longs délais de développement. Son appareil photographique, qu’il a conçu et construit lui-même, est transporté à l’aide d’une remorque à plateau pour produire des images uniques de grands formats. La conception de son appareil ph...
Exhibition: John Kiara and Masao YamamotoBay Area photographer John Chiara captures cityscapes in a process that is part photography part sculpture and part event - he creates one-of-a-kind photographs in a variety of hand-built cameras, the largest of which is a 50” x 80” field camera, transported by the artist on a flatbed trailer. Once a location is selected, he situates and then physically enters the camera, maneuvering in near total darkness positive color photographic paper on the camera’s back wall. John Chiara received his B.F.A. in Photography from the University of Utah in 1995, and his M.F.A. in Photography from the California College of the Arts in 2004. He was recently included in the group exhibition "Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography" at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

Exposition : Haines Gallery Returns to Fog Design + ArtHaines Gallery is delighted to be participating once again in Fog Design + Art, presented in collaboration with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. At this year's fair we will be featuring a solo booth of recent works by Bay Area photographer John Chiara.
John Chiara's process is part photography, part event, and part sculpture. Utilizing a large, handmade camera obscura mounted on a trailer, Chiara points his lens at the in-between landscapes, architectural quirks and overlooked moments of beauty that make San Francisco so extraordinary. Chiara's one-of-a-kind, large-scale prints--made without the use of a negative--form a glossy, handmade addition to the photographic record of a city like no other.
Preview Gala Tickets for Wednesday, January 14th, can be purchased online, benefiting SFMOMA. The f...
New exhibition at The Aperture GalleryThe Photographer’s Playspace features twenty photographers who have created new works in response to assignments from the Aperture book The Photographer’s Playbook: 307 Assignments and Ideas, a recently published compilation designed to inspire fresh perspectives in a photographer’s creative process.
Using assignments selected by Christopher McCall, director of Pier 24 Photography, the photographers produced works that both reflect a continuation of established practices and represent new directions in making pictures. The exhibition reveals each artist’s distinctive process and aesthetic, demonstrating how a simple prompt can inspire renewed engagement with the medium.

De • tached - JOHN CHIARA
For his second solo exhibition at Haines Gallery, Bay Area-based photographer John Chiara continues his in-depth explora - tion of the San Francisco landscape by focusing on the idea of a city in tran - sition. While the new photographs are undeniably about a particular place—evok - ing a light and mood characteristically associated with San Francisco—they speak more broadly to the ways we experience what the artist describes as “the blended character of memory in relation to spe - cific moments or places.” Using cameras he has designed and built himself, Chiara’s inventive techniques, such as printing directly onto positive color photographic paper, leave behind visible traces of his process. The resulting works of art (each picture is unique) invite us to contem - plate their content wh...
Staking Claim: A California Invitational
This original exhibition is the second installment of a triennial series showcasing the talent of and diverse scope of photographic work being done by photographers living within the Museum’s home state. Sixteen different artists, all of whom reside in California, are featured in the exhibition and all of the work has been created within the past five years.
The artists are both established and emerging and the variety of work is as varied as the state of California itself. Staking Claim: A California Invitational embraces the digital medium but also remains true to, and in some cases reinterprets, traditional photographic processes. The result is a dynamic exhibition that highlights the constant evolution of the art form.
