The Young Earth is a fictional photo series and accompanying photo-text novella that follows two Americans in their twenties, one of them terminally ill, as they explore the idyllic and remote corners of Iceland. As they immerse themselves into those foreign and wild landscapes, they are forced to confront their own mortality and a past love triangle that briefly disturbed their friendship. Shot from multiple perspectives, the back and forth between portraits and landscapes, between poetry and fictional prose, reveals the same tension that bonds the two men. One man, leaving behind the ones he loves, faces his impeding death and the question of the afterlife, when the other one contemplates an uncertain future and loneliness without his best friend.

Press
Sullivan's Young Earth series has been highlighted on Dazed Digital, New Landscape Photography and We Are Selecters. Sullivan was also interviewed by Platform Photo.
Andrew Fladeboe
In Norway
Andrew Fladeboe's photographs come out of the tradition of British animal portraiture - the great 18th century equestrian paintings of George Stubbs and the 19th century dog canvases of Edwin Landseer. This past summer he traveled extensively throughout Norway to make portraits of dogs set against the majestic mountains and fjords. For this project, he put an emphasis on dogs native to Norway. Of the 7 native Norwegian dogs, he was particularly interested in the Elkhound (used to hunt moose), the Lundehund (once used by Vikings to catch puffins on the cliffs of the fjords), and the Buhund (the indigenous herding dog). He also made portraits of English Setters, Collies, and the King of Norway's dog, a rare Taigan. The results are stunning.

For more information or to purchase prints please contact the gallery.

Born in California in 1984, Andrew grew up in Japan, Russia, and Austria before obtaining his BFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006. His work has been included in group shows in NY, Boston, Providence, Seattle, and Tokyo. In 2012 he had a solo show in Newport RI. His work has been published in American Photography 27, and will be featured in the upcoming Identities Now: Contemporary Portrait Photography. He's been awarded a Fullbright for 2014 to photograph working dogs in New Zealand.

Insight: The Wit and Wisdom of Duane Michals
An Interview by Peter Hay Halpert
Duane Michals recently sat down at the Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York to talk about his photography and his career, and it was, as expected, both an entertaining and rewarding event. Michals, who is now 81, has published more than 20 books and had numerous museum and gallery exhibitions, including retrospectives at MoMA (1970) and ICP (2005), and his work will be the subject of another major retrospective next year at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburg, his hometown.

His use of sequential images and text written on images has expanded the possibilities of photography, and his smart humor has endeared him to those who’ve heard him speak. At the Leslie-Lohman Museum, it was clear that he has lost none of wit or wisdom.

You can read the full interview with Duane Michals here.

Ron Diorio
Come Play With Me - a new series of photographs
We are excited to announce the launch of a new body of work by Ron Diorio -
Come Play With Me - to coincide with the selection of two of his videos for a new exhibition at the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University. This new series follows the success of Diorio's last two series - Comin' Around Again and Hometown.

These images represent an aesthetic continuation, but signify a radical departure in terms of subject matter. Diorio explains: "In 2012, I began a project to make Subfactors, an experimental film suggested by a research paper published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior on 'Why Humans Have Sex.'" Participants in the research project were asked to answer how frequently each of 238 reasons led them to have sex. "I posted on Craigslist, using various 'reasons' for having sex as the headline or subject of my Casual Encounters listing. The images that formed the basis for the Come Play With Me series were initially sent back in response to those postings."

The Complete
Come Play With Me series is available for viewing here.

Come Play With Me and Diorio's short Subfactors were recently highlighted on AI-IP's Pro Photo Daily, by David Schonauer.
