Exhibit: Dickerman Prints Gallery, San Francisco (June 14 – July 15, 2017)

Wanderlust

Wanderlust (n): a strong desire to travel
For some, wanderlust manifests itself as an unquenchable thirst to explore life beyond your comfort zone. For others, it’s as simple as reading a book, taking a walk at lunch or going left instead of a right on the way to work.

Wherever your wanderlust takes you – by foot, pedal, engine or “other” – we want to see it!

Group show featuring Al Brydon, Annie Wilson, Marcus Desieno, Erin Walker Anderson, Oliver Klink, Pete Rosos, Rebecca Martinez among others.

Artist Reception: The ImageFlow Gallery – Reflect and Engage (June 3, 7-9PM)

Reflect & Engage Digital Photography Exhibition

June 3 – August 25, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 3, 7–9PM

The Image Flow proudly presents Reflect & Engage, a group exhibition featuring 36 artists examining themes of identity and engagement through digital photography.

The images in this exhibition are activated through the multidisciplinary pursuits and values of the artists who created them. These artists are not just photographers. They are sociologists and humanitarians, non-profit directors and journalists, environmental activists and defenders of peace. They are world travelers exploring the connection between ourselves, our immediate communities, and our larger global society.

Reflect & Engage is curated from nearly 250 submitted works from San Francisco Bay Area photographers, though many of them are of international origin. Hailing from Beijing, China, to northern England, Iceland, Germany, Italy, the U.S., and Communist Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic) they embed their unique experiences and culturally diverse perspectives into their photography.

The exhibition features works by: Sue Amar, Lori Barra, Daniel Beck, Mary Butler, Bailey Chang, David Charnack, James Clift, John De Groot, Suzanne Engelberg, David Gardner, Ingeborg Gerdes, Stuart Goldstein, Charlotta María Hauksdóttir, Cary James, Tracy Johnston, Oliver Klink, Sam Levy, Stephanie Mackey, Deborah Martin, Michael Martin, Marissa McPeak, Michael Osborne, David Pace, Suzanne Paras Beard, Tim Porter, Mark Roudebush, Nicolò Sertorio, Iris Brito Stevens, Marti Stites, Jerry Takigawa, Brandon Tauszik, Barry Toranto, Michal Venera, Charles Versaggi, Nick Winkworth, and Xiao Xu.

Come celebrate this fantastic collection of work and meet the artists at our opening reception on Saturday, June 3 from 7–9PM.

Award of Excellence for Holi Temple at PhotoCentral Gallery SpringShow

 

The PhotoCentral Gallery SpringShow celebrated its 30th anniversary, one of the longest running show in the Bay Area. This year work selection was outstanding with well deserved awards given by Danny Sanchez (Themes and Projects Gallery, San Francisco) and Margaretta Mitchell (Fine Art Photographer, Berkeley).

“Thirty years and it keeps getting better” says Geir Jordahl, the gallery director. “The evolution of photography has made this show very special. The Springshow is a platform for artists to express their idea, concepts and receive feedback from a well educated audience.”

My installation – Holi Temple – received an Award of Excellence. “There are very few galleries, that are willing to feature out of the box thinking. I am very grateful to PhotoCentral, Geir Jordahl and all his helpers to have made this installation possible. My project started as a very small entity – a lantern … With the encouragement of Geir and his crew, it grew to a “lively experience”, where visitors could feel, hear and visualize the deep meaning of “The annual festival of colors”.

The show is up until June 10.

PhotoCentral Gallery, 1099E Street, Hayward, California

 

Critical Mass Exhibit until May 2 (Denver Colorado)

CRITICAL MASS TOP 50 – MARKERS OF TIME

From Photolucida in Portland Oregon, 200 photographer finalists work was viewed and voted on by over 200 esteemed international photography professionals. From the finalist group, the Top 50 are named and awarded. This group is being presented during the Month of Photography.

www.photolucida.org/critical-mass/top-50

 

Although there are seemingly infinite ways of making photographs – and as many opinions about their value – one of photography’s universal tools is its ability to become a tangible record of time. Whether that is achieved through the capture of a specific moment, or if a series of images present a visual journal of a photographer’s personal journey, these moments lend themselves to clichés that speak of time. The passing of time, time is of the essence, the work is “big time” or it might be ahead of its time.

When exploring the fantastic photographs created by the Critical Mass finalists, it may, at first, seem tricky to find a thematic thread that weaves its way throughout the work. After all, the photographers presented their work without parameters that locked them into to a specific theme. And yet, time after time, when looking at the photographs selected from this collection of 50 finalists, you can’t help but see time staring back at you. Some of the images are lost in time, some seem to have been created in a time warp, others feel timely, some suspend time and a few make you exclaim: “It’s about time!”

Each of these 50 images are part of a separate story. How you decide to see them, either through a narrative presented by the photographer, or via your own imagination, is up to you. Take your time. You might find that in each case they do more than suspend time; they become timeless.

Oliver Klink featured on weather.com – Stunning BW pictures of remote cultures

Article by Euna Park

In 2005, photographer Oliver Klink left the corporate world to focus solely on photography. Born and raised in the Swiss Alps, Klink has always had a heartfelt appreciation for nature. His extensive travels allowed him to discover and appreciate what was in front of his eyes.

“From [an] early age, I vividly recall the smell of the ink, the paper flying through Heidelberg presses and flipping through books my dad printed,” Klink told weather.com. “I started as a large-format analog photographer and was in awe with the quality of the images and the prints.”

“Herding Instinct” published at 6mois magazine

3 Avril, 2017 – Sur le Vif

« Dans ce village près de Punakha, au Bhoutan, les gens se retrouvent après leur journée de travail dans le magasin d’alimentation générale. Ils discutent, passent un moment, puis s’en vont. Ce jour-là, ils sont interrompus par deux chèvres un peu bagarreuses. Moi, de l’autre côté de la rue avec mon appareil, j’ai l’impression d’être au théâtre. »
Cette photo a été prise par Oliver Klink.
