NEW YORK, NY.- Throughout her career, photographer Sandi Haber Fifield has worked with multiple images to create narrative pieces that transcend the formal elements of photography confined to a single moment. Working in an intuitive manner, she searches for the connective tissue between disparate images to produce a whole from smaller parts. The associations she makes result in composites of four, sometimes three images, often rendered in soft focus, which are visual poems reconstructed from memory or dreams. These beautiful, engaging, and decidedly feminine works are gathered here in the artist’s third monograph After the Threshold (Kehrer Verlag, April 2013), with an essay by renowned photography critic Vicki Goldberg.

After the Threshold will be unveiled at The AIPAD Photography Show New York on Saturday, April 6 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the booth of Rick Wester Fine Art (#117). An accompanying exhibition will open at RWFA with an artist reception on Thursday, May 2 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Rick Wester Fine Art has moved! This marks the first exhibition in the gallery’s new space located at 526 West 26th Street, Suite 417.

The source material for Haber Fifield’s work is the artist’s vast archive of images. When brought together and sequenced, these photographs become “stories” for the viewer to linger on and interpret. Haber Fifield explores the relationship between images, and what happens to them when they are linked and take on new meanings. The editing and sequencing of images is as important to her as the making of the images themselves.

In her essay, Goldberg writes: “[Haber Fifield’s] sequences, leaping through illogical hoops, revel in ambiguity, yet they cohere in mood and tone, much the way a piece of music does when the same key persists while melodies change. The clues to coherence are subtle: compositional elements recur, color plays nuanced games, and each sequence projects a consistent range of feeling.”

After the Threshold will be the inaugural exhibition in RWFA’s spacious new galleries and the second solo exhibition by the artist. Twenty-two works from the monograph will be included, giving a physical dimension to the ethereal sequencing evidenced in print. Haber Fifield’s photographs combine the three or four image combinations on single sheets, enlarged and floating in white borders that allow the viewer to experience their calm, sensual and delicate presence without distraction. Also included will be the artist’s first video, Pools of Time, 2013, a single screen two-minute loop with ambient sound that mimics the multi-image format in After the Threshold. The video will be shown continuously.

Sandi Haber Fifield was born in Youngstown, Ohio. She has a MFA in photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and notable museums throughout the United States including The Art Institute of Chicago, The DeCordova Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Museum of American Art, and The St. Louis Art Museum. Haber Fifield's photographs are held in numerous private and public collections, among them The High Museum of Art, The Library of Congress, The Los Angeles County Museum, and The Museum of Modern Art. After the Threshold is Haber Fifield's third monograph. In 2009 her book of grids and multiple image installations, Walking through the World, was published (Charta), and in 2011 Between Planting and Picking was released (Charta). Sandi Haber Fifield is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art in New York.

Vicki Goldberg is the author of The Power of Photography: How Photographs Changed Our Lives (Abbeville, 1991). This, with her Margaret Bourke-White: A Biography (Harper and Row, 1986) were each named a best book of the year by the American Library Association. Most recently, Goldberg is the author of The White House: The President’s Home in Photographs and History (Little Brown, 2011). Additionally, she is coauthor of American Photography: A Century in Images (Chronicle Books, 1999) and editor of Photography in Print: Writings from 1816 to the Present (University of New Mexico Press, 1988). She is the recipient of numerous awards for her work, including the International Center of Photography’s prestigious Infinity Award in 1997. Goldberg lectures widely and has written on photography and the arts for The New York Times, American Photo, Vanity Fair, and other publications.
