Gitterman Gallery is committed to presenting great art in photography. We have over 25 years of experience in the field and specialize in connoisseur level photographs. In addition to representing artists, estates and private collections, we maintain an inventory of selective work that spans the history of the medium in a full range of styles and periods. We have fine examples of work by established artists and we also champion artists that have been overlooked by the history of the medium. We are available for guidance in establishing or developing a collection as well as buying or selling at auction.

Opening on Saturday at KMR Arts, gallery artist Christopher Russell.
Opening this Saturday, November 21, Christopher Russell. Come by and see this exquisite work (socially distant, of course).
Christopher Russell's art engages historical notions of landscape yet he does so with a decidedly contemporary approach. Each work is unique and combines color photography and drawing. Based in the Pacific Northwest and inspired by Carleton Watkins' photographs of the American West 150 years ago, Russell's images both extend the tradition of landscape photography and challenge the viewer's perception of the medium. These images of hazy color are manipulated by the artist scratching into the surface of the print with a razor. The drawings add detail back into the consciously obscured photographic image. In some cases, he draws abstract forms made with small markings that represent the half-tone patterns of photomechanical reproduction. With others, Russell draws historical plant and floral patterns, essentially layering stylized images of nature over the original photographic image. Though he pushes conceptual and art historical boundaries, Russell remains a Romantic and his artwork invites the viewer to experience the wonder that he has found, and that continues to inspire him.

For our second talk in the Penumbra Artist Series this fall, we are excited to host Christiane Feser, based in Frankfurt, Germany.
Christiane Feser is known for her ongoing series of photoobjects—three-dimensional, photographic sculptures that behave like representational and optical experiments; simultaneously exploring the perceptions of a camera and a person.
Join us for an online talk on November 19th at 2pm EST! https://www.penumbrafoundation.org/penumbra-artist-series-christiane-feser

Khalik Allah is a New York-based photographer and filmmaker who practices Camera Ministry with an eye as open as his heart. The resulting work has been described as "street opera" and noted for its beautifully visceral humanity.
It is easy to walk through a city not making eye contact, but for Khalik Allah this contact is essential. He sees each individual he photographs. And his photographs in turn allow us to see them, to acknowledge who we might ignore, to look through Allah’s eye and into theirs, and to recognize them as individuals. This is the power of Allah’s work: to give us a deeper sense of people as people, to share and enlighten, even when the message may not be easy.
This work as well and those from his book, “Souls Against the Concrete” (University of Texas Press, 2017), were made at night on 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem. They provide a glimpse into a world and people that many choose to ignore. His subjects are often drug addicts, homeless, or both as with Frenchie, a Haitian immigrant who Khalik befriended.
Using only the available light from shop windows, street lights, or subway platforms, he photographs with a slow color film, a combination that produces images full of grain and texture, a visual shorthand for the roughness and intensity of life on the street, and his own struggles early in life. The light is also often harsh or even surreal, resulting in figures awash in blues and reds. Luc Sante, in The New York Times Book Review, wrote "The result is a panorama of human emotion: sadness, passion, bewilderment, pride, suspicion, amusement, exhaustion — all the faces of the night."
Allah is currently a nominee of Magnum Photos, to learn more about Khalik Allah and his work, please visit his auction page on our website: https://sfcamerawork.org/auction-2020-khalik-allah

"Light is so important in my work; I use it to express ideas and convey the sense of time. The photograph you mention happened because I noticed that the people on the curb were picked out by the fragmented light falling through the tracks. It was like a stage with each body lit differently. One of my primary interests is to show how the medium works, its play of first-hand experience and photographic experience." — Kenneth Josephson

Khalik Allah feature interview with PDN. We will have more signed copies of his book soon.
Visual artist Khalik Allah toggles between filmmaking and photography with equal fluency, and an esthetic that is rich in color, light and contrast, as well as emotional urgency. Self-taught in both media, Allah tells PDN, “I didn’t know that they were two different things. I looked at filmmakin...

Review of our current show, which closes on the 25th. "As intricately hand crafted objects, Feser’s prints are undeniably impressive and remarkable, but it’s their resulting ability to make us step back, think, and reassess what we assume is happening that makes them durably intriguing. While we don’t usually consider abstractions as “brainy,” Feser’s photographic objects are just that – if they don’t challenge your ability to make sense of them, you’re not paying attention."
