The Human Landscape
May 5, 2016–June 12, 2016
Reception May 12, 2016 6-9 PM
Karin Rosenthal has dedicated her photographic career to exploring human experience via nudes in the landscape. Work from three different periods that expand the genre in disparate ways, will be on display.
The Griffin Gallery will showcase color images from her “Tide Pool” Series. Her more recent “Inheriting Loss” images, exploring family history and life’s fragility, will be featured in the Atelier Gallery accompanied by some of her earlier “Nudes in Water”.
May 22 at 3PM Artists’ Dialogue – The Nude: From Object to Subject (Register Here)
Part 1: Teaching the Nude
Part 2: Collaborations
Event Description: Arguably the most controversial genre in photography, the Nude is loaded with cultural stereotypes and degrading projections. It also has tremendous potential for wide-ranging, meaningful expression. Karin will discuss her approach to teaching the Nude, followed by workshop students who will dialogue with the model about some of their best collaborations. Joining Karin in conversations about various images in the exhibition will be Jim Baab, Jim Banta, Pippi Ellison, Moti Hodis, Doug Johnson, Ron St. Jean and Tony Schwartz.
June 7 at 7PM Artist Talk -Journeying Within the Human Landscape with Karin Rosenthal
Karin Rosenthal has photographed nudes in the landscape since 1975, finding resonances between body and nature first in traditional photography and, more recently, in digital photography. In this talk, she draws from a variety of series to convey the evolution and range of her motivations and explorations. Using the alchemy of light, water, and the human figure, Rosenthal creates, with one click of the shutter, abstractions and illusions that challenge us to see beyond the predictable.
