Elliott Erwitt Havana Club 7 Fellowship
Over the Rainbow is a project blending fantasy-inspired studio portraiture and video along with documentary images to create a multi-layered portrait of a Cuban girls’ transition into womanhood. Widely celebrated in Latino culture, the quinceañera is a gender-specific tradition, wherein girls dress like princesses, inviting guests to celebrate their 15th birthday and transition into womanhood with a lavish party. The display of wealth is important, even in communist Cuba, where the… more

The result can yield something like comprehensiveness: a constellation of themes—for example, music, literature, fashion, politics, cosmology, and photography itself— that approximate the personality of the individual who brought them together. shego/hego/ego, a minimalist poem by Emmett Williams, repurposed as an artwork by Natal… more
Baptiste Rabichon uses photography in a way that gives new meaning to the idea of a material-carrying content. His work proposes a set of sensations and impressions. His discourse is constructed through the use of complex manufacturing tools and protocols, mixing new technologies and old techniques; an experiment in which fantasy coincides with admiration for the great ancestors.
As a good gardener, that is to say craftsman, the artist strives to use the best processes: film and digital, focus… more

Walter Benjamin said that one of the most intimate relationships that can be established with objects is that of possession. That is why working with the photographs and videos of the Helga de Alvear Collection is an act of both voyeurism and complicity.
This selection of photographs and videos from the Helga de Alvear Collection is, evidently, a pro… more
