Rick Wester Fine Art presents « The Passengers », a Joni Sternbach's exhibitionJoni Sternbach, known internationally for her extensive documentation of surfers and surf culture using the archaic wet-plate collodion tintype process, had 25 years of experience photographing before delving into her 19th century process revival. In what may seem to be a huge surprise to all who know her solely for the unique images on metal plates, Rick Wester Fine Art is very pleased to present Joni STERNBACH: The Passengers, an exhibition of photographs dating from the mid-1970s to 1980 when she was extensively photographing underground in the New York City subway. This recently rediscovered body of work establishes her as a humanist photographer capable of great empathy and sensitivity at a time when “street photography” invariably reflected the formal and disassociated conditions of the era. In The Pass...
NOT LONG HIDDEN
In the midst of the coldest winter in New York in 20 years it seems that no amount of freezing sunshine, Vitamin D or dry radiator heat can overcome the chill of the wind off the Hudson, East or Harlem Rivers. Rick Wester Fine Art is pleased to present a visual antidote to Seasonal Affective Disorder with NOT LONG HIDDEN, a group exhibition that combines the work of five photographers who have explored and incorporated into their work a highly visceral and sensual vision of summer light, color and tone. Kate Joyce (Chicago, IL), Jakub Karwowski (Krakow), Joe Maloney (Hancock, NY), Cheryle St. Onge (Durham, NH) and Joni Sternbach (Brooklyn, NY) all share unique sensibilities towards how radiant light shapes their imagery. Like music that transforms auditory sensation into emotion and action, the photographers of NOT LO...
This exhibition will explore the breadth and global diversity of contemporary photographic portraiture since 2000, highlighting recent acquisitions to the museum's permanent collection.
About Face will include works by twenty-nine artists from the United States, England, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Iran and South Africa. Though each of these photographers approaches portrait-making differently, certain thematic threads resonate throughout the show, including questions of racial, cultural, ethnic, class and gender identity; the relationship between individuals and typologies; the way photographic processes themselves inform meaning; the relevance of historical precedents to contemporary practice; and the impact of media stereotypes on self-presentation. Considered collectively, the works in About Fa...
Joni Sternbach presents « SurfLand, Revisited, 2006-2011 »
Rick Wester Fine Art is very pleased to announce our first exhibition of photographs by Joni Sternbach, selected from her series « SurfLand », a project started in 2006 and punctuated by the PhotoLucida publication of the same name in 2009. « SurfLand, Revisited, 2006-2011 » is its first showing in New York City and brings together images from the monograph with more recent works.
Sternbach has dedicated much of the past six years making portraits of surfers and their community employing the archaic, elaborate and fascinating wet-plate collodion process commonly known as tintype. Redolent of the Civil War era when the process was first developed, the images are ghostly and vibrant, ancient and modern, sturdy yet precious. Produced directly on the plates themselves, they are unique objects, ...
