Images: Found and Lost
Lorna Bieber, Three Birds/Front View, 2000 January 29 - May 26, 2011

Lorna Bieber uses collage, paint, photocopier and computer technology to build “one-off” traditional silver photographs. Presented as large murals and wall-sized collages; these images select unnoticed, archetypal and poignant elements from found imagery and anonymous, generic magazine illustrations to create a remote and contemplative interior world of memory, ambiguity, dream and loss...MORE.

Karen Glaser, Leon's Dome, 2009 January 29 - May 26, 2011

Her photography for this exhibition was made “inside” Florida’s springs, swamps and waterways and it provides a unique interpretation of these distinctive environments. Her color images are not mere documents of Florida’s underwater wonderlands; they convey the mystery and primordial power of this alien environment in a unique and personal view and one that is unfamiliar, alluring and visceral...MORE.

Signs and Wonders
Stuart Rome, Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine, FL February 19 - May 13, 2011

Stuart Rome followed in the footsteps of many of the great pro-genitors of natural science and journeyed to the heart of the Florida Peninsula. His celebrated landscape images draw their inspiration and take their lead from the writings, journals, and illustrations of many of these important early naturalists. They examine the visual evidence present in the landscape of our cultural priorities and history and expand upon the standard landscape vocabulary to build a complex language of layers, networks and connections in the landscape...MORE.

September 11 - here is new york
Christophe Agou August 18 – October 2, 2011

This powerful set of photographs is drawn from the Permanent Collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography. The original exhibition was organized in response to the World Trade Center tragedy of 2001, and to the unprecedented flood of images that resulted from that event.

"here is new york" was originally organized by four individuals in the days immediately following the destruction of the World Trade Center. The exhibition began during the third week of September in a small vacant storefront on Prince Street in Soho, which was owned by one of the organizers and where he had taped up a nondescript picture of the World Trade Center in the front window on September 11. As soon as the call for submissions went out, the response was immediate and overwhelming. By Christmas, over fifteen hundred photographers had contributed more than four thousand images, and more than two hundred and fifty thousand people had made their way to Prince Street to view them...MORE.

Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins and Christopher Sims
Louie Palu August 18 – October 2, 2011

After ten years of turmoil, uncertainty and conflict we confront the anniversary of the events of September 11th. What has happened since then, and how have photographers helped shape our understanding of these complex events and the circumstances surrounding them? Four photographers and four dramatically different records are presented alongside images made at the actual site of what has become known as “ground zero” on that September day in 2001.

Each photographer has created a unique archive that powerfully articulates their own particular understanding of the forces in play in these events. Drawing from the fields of portraiture, documentary and reportage photography; each series forms an authentic and engaging facet of the not-yet-complete archive of an elusive global conflict, and a series of wars that have not yet fully ended.

Featuring the photography of Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins and Christopher Sims...MORE
