The show will open January 31st and will hang in the Galerie Catherine et Andre through February 23rd. Featuring his wife and muse Stacy, this very personal collection of images uses the staged minimalism of the twentieth century painter Edward Hopper as a vehicle to explore the narrative properties of the medium of photography.

On April 5th, 2012 Gallery Stock contributor Mikael Kennedy, along with photographer Sean Sullivan, set out on a month long road trip to explore the American West in a project titled The Ramblers Bone. In 29 days the duo, sponsored by American bootmakers Wolverine, drove and documented 6,288 miles. The veteran travelers departed from LA and traveled down to New Mexico, headed up the Rockies, thru Montana, and then back down the California Coast. The road westward has been an inspiration for great photographers through the years as well as a source of some of the most iconic, identifiably American images. Mikael and Sean’s project proves without a doubt that this remains to be the case.
Mikael Kennedy’s photos from the expedition will be presented to the public for the first time at the Wolverine Company Store this Thursday, November 29th, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
Gallery stock contributor Wyatt Gallery will be auctioning off prints at the Gowanus Loft on November 15th. The event, entitled The Listening, is being presented by the Vanderbilt Republic and Untapped New York to raise money for the Far Rockaway Redevelopment Fund.

Gallery Stock contributor Per-Anders Pettersson is looking for crowd-funded support for an exciting project about Soweto, or Southwestern Township. Soweto was built on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa as a settlement for black and colored people over a hundred years ago and was a central location of political violence during the Apartheid. Today, nearly 30 years later, Soweto has become a dynamic community and an essential component of South Africa’s ever-growing culture and commerce. Per-Anders Petterson is raising money to create a workshop for individuals who share his passion for Soweto and create a place to live, work and explore the vibrant community while learning about the photojournalism process. There are 48 hours left to donate to the project through emphasis.is and every $50.00 donar will receive a copy of the Soweto book upon its release.
Gallery Stock celebrates photographer Brian Finke’s new show, opening tonight at ClampART in Manhattan (521- 531 West 25th Street, 7-9pm), debuting his new series, “Construction”, much of which is also available for commercial & editorial licensing at Gallery Stock
Here is their write-up about the show:
Brian Finke turns his attention to New York City building sites for his third monograph, and fourth solo exhibition, Construction. As with his previous series (which focused upon such subjects as flight attendants and high school cheerleaders and football players), the new work examines a group of people- this time construction workers- who are often represented in broad and stereotypical terms.
Consistent with earlier projects, Finke zeroes in upon postures, expressions, and gestures, representing the individuals who comprise the group. While revealing diversity in uniformity, Finke also details the establishment of individual identities in the image of the larger group or industry. The artist states, “I have always been attracted to photographing within groups, immersing myself in the scene, almost becoming one of the members.” And by submerging himself in a given stratum, Finke is able to shoot largely unnoticed. The result is a personalized view of the construction industry that seamlessly blends the heroic with the mundane. But in contrast with his earlier photographs, the images from Construction incorporate much more of the surrounding environments. Finke shoots the workers in relation to the machines they operate, and then contrasts the scale of these seemingly small men, women, and machines to the mammoth structures they erect.
Construction will be on exhibition from September 6th- October 13th. The monograph (10 x 10 inches, 59 four-color plates, 80 pages, hardcover, $55 USD) is currently available on Decode books.
