LA JOLLA, CA.- Joseph Bellows Gallery announces two new exhibitions, Victor Landweber American Cameras and Summer Selections II. An opening reception will be held for both exhibitions on Saturday July 26 from 6-8pm. The exhibitions will continue through September 6th.

Victor Landweber’s American Cameras series depict a visually seductive group of vintage cameras isolated on a black background. The large-scale luminous Cibachrome prints included in the exhibition present their subjects directly, and ask the viewer to contemplate the object pictured, as well as the nature of the medium of photography itself.

Artists working in media other than photography, especially late Modernist painters, surrealists, Dadaists and conceptual artists, whose work have suggested possibilities for addressing perception and its representation in a photograph, have been influential to Landweber.

Victor Landweber was born in Washington DC in 1943. He holds a B.A. from the University of Iowa (1966) and a M.F.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles (1976). His work is included in major public collections, including: California Museum of Photography, Center for Creative Photography, Fogg Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Seattle Art Museum, as well as numerous other prominent institutions.

Summer Selections II is the second in a series of summer 2014 group exhibitions that organize both the work of gallery artists and vintage photographs from the gallery’s collection into a running narrative on photography’s wealth of subject matter and processes. Among the artists included in the exhibition are: Harry Callahan, Brassai, Andre Kertesz, Thomas Barrow, Terry Wild, Earl Iversen, Steve Kahn, Arnold Kramer, Wayne Gudmundson, Gregory Conniff, John Schott, Andrea Modica, Michael Mulno, Mark Steinmetz, and others.
