We are very excited to share the upcoming “Unbound” Exhibition by Sally Gall, one of Gallery Stock’s premier contributors. “Unbound” uses both color and black and white images to depict a weightless world without horizons. Gall combines a vertical format, diptychs, and triptychs to create “image poems” conveying the spirit of the unbound. Prominently featuring clouds, airplanes, and contrails Gall seeks to create a feeling of flight transporting you to a place not bound by gravity, a place where you can escape the constraint of our horizon-oriented experience.
Come join Sally for her opening on Thursday March 14th from 6-8 pm at the Julie Saul Gallery, 535 W 22nd St, 6th fl.
Can’t make the reception? You can visit these beautiful images from March 14 - May 4th 2013, Tues-Fri 10 am-6 pm.

The Federal Arts Project was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 to employ out-of-work artists in a post-depression United States. The over 200,000 photos captured in the short lifespan of the F.A.P. are a unique and insightful archive-document of a devastating period in American history. From within The Museum of the City of New York collection, Gallery Stock has curated 458 of the best Federal Arts Project images taken in New York. And now, the power and importance of the photos has been embraced by noted documentarian Ken Burns in his new film, ‘The Dust Bowl’, which premiered on PBS on November 18th and 19th. In the film, F.A.P. images appear alongside rare video footage and interviews with survivors of the Dust Bowl to put a very real face on, as Mr. Burns describes it, “the greatest man-made Eco disaster in U.S. History.” To find out more about the documentary, check out PBS.com.

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.
