Brendon Stuart, a graduate of the renowned International Center of Photography, has transitioned from illustration and music into the realm of photography with a focus on documentation. ‘Riding the Dog’ his latest project about travel by bus (ie Greyhound) will be on display at this current exhibit. The images featured include his experience, as many of us have experienced, in the mundanity of bus travel. From these ordinary moments in life, Stuart captures serendipitous frames of nature, people, and process. The images tell a story of a journey, but also teach a lesson in never taking for granted everyday scenes in one’s own life, which can be dramatic, intense, serene, and most importantly, thoughtful. Special attention is given on presentation, which scores high points here.
Toby Tenebaum’s assignments have taken him all over the globe as well as the U.S. Tenebaum’s amazing use of color is signature in his work, with vibrant hues splashed across the frames. The photos for the show juxtapose images of quiet serenity with images of frenzy and excitement. Graphic shapes are also important in Tenebaum’s work as composition is well thought out. Spot on technique, with visually stunning imagery make Tenenbaum’s images works to aspire to.
Translation exhibit opening reception will be held this Friday, May 24th from 6-10pm at Fort Useless at 36 Ditmars Street in Brooklyn (J/M Myrtle Ave stop). Stop by, have some wine, and appreciate some beautiful travel photography.
