“The pictures come out like presents…”- William Wegman

When Edwin Land introduced Polaroid Instant Film in 1947, he was unaware that he would anticipate two revolutions in photography. The first was instant photography, where both photographer (and human subject) could sample their image immediately. The second was digital photography, with a different -- and less expensive -- type of instant image. Ironically, this alternative hastened the demise of Polaroid.

What is the allure and fascination of the Polaroid? Beyond the sheer magic of seeing an image appear from nothingness, the prints could be remarkably rich, vibrant and resolute, rivaling and sometimes surpassing the finest silver or color prints. The Polaroid print was a living object: you shook it in the air or held it in the warmth of your armpit to accelerate development. With the sharing of the image and the subsequent marvel, taking a picture became an interactive experience.

Steve Giovinco Exhibits at Lohin Geduld Gallery

"Portrayal," curated by Marianne Gagnier and Ro Lohin
June 10 through July 10
Opening reception Saturday, June 12 from 5-7
531 West 25th Street
New York, NY

"Portrayal – from the Latin verb protrahere, to draw forward (pro- forward + trahere- to draw)

To make a portrait is to engage in a close and risky relationship with the subject. The process, bringing forward knowledge, can collapse social norms of comfortable distance. The portrayal of a living subject allows for limitless surprise and for the unknown to appear even in a beloved face and form.

The artists participating in “Portayal” have captured a connection between artist and subject. This relation is real, but cannot be pinned on likeness or mood. It is the opposite of anonymity. Arising from the complexity of a two-way encounter, the work does not partake of narrative or easily identified emotion.

Empathy, frailties and strengths, and individuality are made concrete by these portraits. But the telling mark or method of this accomplishment cannot be ascertained. Mysterious as the intimate can be, these portraits are an antidote to our daily bath in data, information without intelligence. They draw forth questions."  - Marianne Gagnier June 2010
