Catherine Edelman Gallery opened in 1987 quickly establishing itself as one of the leading galleries in the Midwest devoted exclusively to the art of photography. From its inception, the goal of the gallery was to exhibit prominent contemporary photographers alongside new & young talent, showcasing a broad range of subject matter and photographic techniques. Debuting with the Ballad of Sexual Dependency by Nan Goldin, CEG has shown everything from street photography (Susan Meiselas, Sebastiao Salgado, James Nachtwey) to fashion photography (Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Matthew Rolston) to traditional landscape images (Michael Kenna, Lynn Geesaman) to social-conscious work (Richard Misrach, Jeffrey Wolin, Terry Evans, Allen Ginsberg) to images created as a springboard for story-telling (Joel-Peter Witkin, Elizabeth Ernst, Dan Estabrook) etc.

“I became interested in the street as a site of investigation when I moved to Chicago a little over ten years ago… I started using my camera as a means of understanding this newfound landscape and my place in it.”

For this week’s pick I chose these pieces from @michaelkennaphoto
I love how Kenna's study of this same tree displays two different landscapes. Landscapes purely affected by their environment.

For this week's pick I chose these tintypes from Michael Koerner’s series "The God Cell". The symmetry of this piece beautifully suggests the splitting of a cell along with stunning red and yellow hues.

Don’t miss out on Francesco Pergolesi’s episode of “In the Spotlight” highlighting his series "Stars".

“Stars” is a 'constellation' of women who are both normal and yet extraordinary. Each piece tells the story of a woman who has had a profound effect on me, as we enter their homes, and ponder the objects that inhabit their spaces."

“ we need art that shakes us and we need lots of it – not just in major cities, but also in rural America and suburbs on the brick walls of police precinct houses. We need art as commentary - not the safe, sterile kind - art to counteract deception, art that reminds us that even when things seem beyond fixing, they are not beyond describing”

For the muralists of El Paso, immigration isn’t a “crisis.” It’s life.
