|Transient gallery pays tribute to black-and-white analog photography|
This exhibition showcases works by three practicing artists whose photos document hidden, neglected landscapes in unexpected ways, signifying the original artistic merit and technical savvy inherent in pre-digital photography.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Once a processing and printing shop, The Photo Gallery in Highland Park has long since been out of business thanks to the rise of digital photography. But from July 25-August 2, the original space is revived as a transient gallery that pays tribute to black-and-white analog photography. This exhibition showcases works by three practicing artists whose photos document hidden, neglected landscapes in unexpected ways, signifying the original artistic merit and technical savvy inherent in pre-digital photography.
Jacqueline Elaine Gomez is a Cuban-American photographer. Raised in Caracas, Venezuela, she currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Jacqueline was a member of the Miami based Dada-inspired artists' collective Noise. Water. Meat., and has had her work exhibited at Miami Dade College's Kendall Art Gallery as well as Honor Fraser Gallery, Dilettante Arts, and MOCA Geffen Contemporary in Los Angeles. She helped organize "The Alchemy of Things Unknown" for Khastoo Gallery, featuring works by William Blake, Harry Smith, Cameron and Aleister Crowley, and published a zine with Hamburger Eyes entitled "In the California Bush." She currently works as a studio manager for artist Mark Grotjahn.
Jason Roberts Dobrin makes work that dissects the American narrative, creating tension by shedding light on the invisible aspects of self-referential American culture. The stronghold of his practice consists of large assemblages of photographic work supplemented by drawings and objects, organized to deconstruct and re-contextualize the myths perpetuated by dominant culture. Roberts Dobrin has exhibited widely in a solo and collective context and has had work published in a range of print media. His interest in self-publishing has lead him to start Golden Spike Press, an ongoing collaborative publishing platform that specializes in limited-edition books and multiples, largely produced on a Risograph duplicator.
Raymond Del Pilar Potes has been making pictures for the past 20 years. At age 14, he created his first zine and has been doing the same ever since. Today he edits and publishes Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine, a periodical inspired by traditions that began with National Geographic and Life magazines, dedicated to revitalizing the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document. Based in San Francisco, Hamburger Eyes has since evolved into a full-scale publishing operation that issues countless other zines, magazines, and books. Its headquarters also houses a professional darkroom for printing editions of silver gelatin black-and-white prints and full-color chromogenic prints. In addition to editing and publishing, Potes still shoots, develops, and prints his own images such as those in Waterfall Hunters, a series of photos taken in Hawaii which has never been on display before now.
