Robert Campos | Look, the Sun is Rising (Flaming Lips in Indianapolis, September 2017) | $250

Roberto Campos unintentionally stumbled into music photography in 2014. It was a cold, rainy October night, and Black Francis was playing a small club in Indianapolis. Shooting in JPEG only, making many mistakes, Roberto photographed his first show and became enraptured with the dynamics that performer and photographer experience during the first three songs. Since then, the Indianapolis-based photographer has transitioned to shooting in RAW and has photographed shows across the United States and music festivals such as Pitchfork Music Festival (Chicago), Day For Night, SXSW and Portugal’s Nos Alive. Japanese animation director Satoshi Kon is a major influence on Roberto’s work, and Kon’s visceral use of dramatic edits to tell a story.

Frank Fuerst | Wired | $295 framed, $195 unframed

In the late 70’s, while attending college in Providence, I had the good fortune of taking a couple of introductory photography courses at the Rhode Island School of Design. There I learned my way around a B&W darkroom and the basics of composition. I lost focus on my photography through years of raising a family and running a business, but when I volunteered to spend a week documenting a cross country bike race in 2009, my passion was rekindled. I was amazed at the freedom a digital camera gave me to easily control the whole life cycle of a photo. I haven’t done any work in a darkroom for years, but those early lessons in bringing out the best of a negative onto paper are still with me, as is my love for a beautiful print. I am a Midwesterner by birth and upbringing, but I’ve lived in Atlanta since 1981, when I ventured south to further my education and pursue a career. I still can’t say I’m a Southerner, but I do now call the Georgia my home, and much of the work I do touches on the themes of southern rural and urban landscapes.

Conrad Maxwell-Girod | Dark Adaptation | $400 framed, $300 unframed

Dark Adaptation

Pricing: $400/$300 unframed

 

Hello, my name is Conrad Maxwell-Girod, and I’m a photographer from Southern California. I’m based in the Atlanta area in Georgia. I’m a junior at SCAD Atlanta pursuing a BFA in Photography with a minor in Film and Television.

Throughout my childhood, I was always the mischievous one capturing candid moments with my Kodak during family events. Including the embarrassing photographs everyone nearly killed me over and begged for me to delete.

As of today, I’m still the one carrying the camera wherever I go. But instead of taking snapshots, I’m composing portraits and orchestrating scenes that people want to get their hands on.

Dan Kaufman | Port Mondrian | $500 framed, $400 unframed

Dan was born in 1952 the son of an artist, and like many passionate artists and photographers began his love affair at an early age: working a paper route so he could buy a camera…his first exposure to a darkroom in a converted a guest bath…and growing up just 5 miles from Disneyland—Walt taught him the magic of the story. …Then there was Frank Lloyd Wright, Kandinsky, Rothko and Jackson Pollock—muses all.

 

Dan entered his first professional juried competition in 1965, at Bowers Museum in southern California, and was accepted.  His work at that time, as a painter, was abstract expressionism—think of melding Pollock’s angst with Rothko’s form, his sense of place.

 

By the late ‘90’s and into the early noughts Dan’s work became more minimalist and he was known for a time as Daniel Scissorhands due to his propensity to cut out what he did not want. This trait, as well as painterly—and at times, sculptural has become characteristic of Dan’s photography.

 

Dan’s photography is in collection at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and the Chinese-American Museum (Los Angeles).
