Martin Usborne: Recipient of the Humane Society of New York's Humane Medal 2018

June 29, 2018

The Humane Society of New York has awarded its 2018 Humane Medal to Martin Usborne for his outstanding service on behalf of animals. Usborne's deep concern for the abandoned and ravaged hunting dogs of Spain, the Galgos, has resulted in his extraordinary book, Where Huntings Dogs Rest (Kehrer Verlag, 2015). His portraits give his subjects the nobility and stature they deserve, while subtly exposing their cruel and inhuman treatment.

These dog pictures were taken on a Sunday at the dog beach in Fort DeSoto Park in St. Petersburg, Florida. The series is entitled Dog Beach and is part of Tony Mendoza: Cats and Dogs, an exhibition presented by Ohio-based photographer and writer of Cuban descent Tony Mendoza. Carmen, his wife, a Spanish teacher, was attending a one-week Advance Placement Workshop in St. Petersburg. He tagged along, with their dog Bob, a long-haired dachshund who became something of a canine “muse” to the photographer.

Tony Mendoza: Cats and Dogs

March 16, 2018 - @ the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Michigan, until June 10th

GRAM’s exhibition Tony Mendoza: Cats and Dogs, presents photographs by this Ohio-based photographer and writer of Cuban descent. Among the eighteen-works included are black and white images from his 1985 project, Ernie: A Photographer’s Memoir, which features a photogenic feline Mendoza encountered upon moving to a new apartment, as well as color images from the series Dog Beach, and Bob, named for a dachshund who became something of a canine “muse” to the photographer. Mendoza’s images combine an animal-lovers’ focus on a subjects’ behavior and personality with a photographer’s attention to composition, light, and movement.

Jen Davis: First Call Out

November 4, 2017 - DODHO MAGAZINE

Since the publication of my first monograph, Eleven Years, I found that most of what I wanted to say in this self-portrait series had been said, and I was interested in taking a break from the intensity of looking at my own body. A physical transformation became the underlying theme of this series, which is what lead me away from myself. I began to make photographs of both female and male body builders whose identities are defined through the physical form of their bodies.

Lucinda Devlin: Sightlines

May 26, 2017

Selections from three series by photographer Lucinda Devlin are featured in this exhibition at the George Eastman Museum, Rochester, New York: Pleasure Ground (1977-90), Corporal Arenas (1982-98). and The Omega Suites ((1991-97). Best known for The Omega Suites--precisely composed images of execution chambers in the United States--Devlin has devoted her career to exploring the relationship between our bodies and the spaces that they inhabit. She has concentrated in particular on interiors associated with pleasure or pain, creating photographs that draw attention to the power relationships embedded in a room's architecture and decor. At the same time, her photographs function as poignant meditations on the familiar yet extraordinary spaces in which our bodies pass time.  The exhibition will be on view from June 24-December 31, 2017.

In conversation with Curator-in-Charge at the George Eastman Museum, Lisa Hostetler, Devlin will discuss her work on view in Sightlines, Friday, June 23 @ 6pm, Dryden Theatre.
