Later this month The Daniel Malka Photo Project will host an exhibition and fund raiser at Café Shaika in Montreal. The project was founded by twenty year advertising, editorial, and fine art photography veteran and Gallery Stock contributing artist, Daniel Malka, with the intent to use photography to teach at-risk children between the ages of 7 and 15 new forms of expression through art.
“The Daniel Malka Photography project uses creativity as a means of expression, therapy, and communication between children, their families, their environments, and of course the outside world. With an extensive team of photographers, educators, art therapists, and activists, we plan to make a difference in the lives of these children by teaching them to see the world through the lens.” – Daniel Malka

Gallery Stock contributing artist Lloyd Ziff will be featured in the upcoming show hosted by The Palm Springs Art Museum. Backyard Oasis: The Swimming Pool in Southern California Photography, 1945-1982 investigates how the backyard swimming pool came to be the identity for a region and influenced the country’s post-World War II ethos. The show opens January 21st and features approximately 135 framed works dating from 1945-1982 as well as film clips presented on flat screen monitors.
“As a private setting, the backyard pool became a stage for sub-culture rituals and clandestine desires. As a medium, photography became the primary vehicle for embodying the polar emotions of consumer optimism and Cold War fears.” -The Palm Springs Art Museum

“Spurred on by private upheavals to reappraise the connections we have to images and memory, master photographer Ken Schles takes you with Oculus on a personal philosophic journey that points beyond the shadow-play of images. It is a meditation on the nature of perception and existence in the grey light of this world.”
