One of seven b/w and color photographs by Sylvia Plachy are online at “Photobooth” the view from the New Yorker photo department. The images are from Sara Ruhl’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s “Orlando” at Classic Stage Company, on view through October 17. The image above is also in the October 11 edition of the magazine. Also on view through October 17 is “Apparitions,” photographs by Sylvia at the Davis Orton Gallery.
Ernie Button’s portfolio, “Back and Forth” has been published in the online magazine, F-Stop Magazine.
According to Button, “Changes in society aren’t always obvious. Sometimes they can be very subtle. The grocery store rides that many of us enjoyed as children are slowly disappearing from the urban landscape. That mechanical horse or the spaceship ride made a trip to the grocery store bearable as a child but now seems hard to find.” Five years ago, Button began his project of photographing these rides in black and white. He has returned to the same locations and shot roughly the same frame in color – perhaps at a different time of day or slightly different perspective – all to suggest change and the passing of time.
F-STOP MAGAZINE is an online photography magazine featuring contemporary photography from established and emerging photographers from around the world. Each issue has a theme or an idea that the unites the photographs to create a dynamic dialogue among the artists.
Published online, bi-monthly since 2002.
Button’s series, “Cerealism” is currently on view at the Davis Orton Gallery, Hudson NY
The Photographer and the Self-Published PhotoBook
The self-published photobook is an exciting new avenue for photographers to present their work directly to the public. In addition, the photobook itself can be a work of art.
As part of the Davis Orton Gallery’s commitment to showcasing the work of contemporary photographers, the Gallery is sponsoring a juried photobook competition culminating in a gallery exhibition and sale.
