AMY ARBUS presents black and white photographs from a new series titled, ‘The Outsiders’. Taken in and around the parks in her New York City neighborhood these riveting new images capture homeless and disenfranchised people. ‘The Outsiders’ began with photographs of the Women’s March in Washington DC and continues to consider the entirety of the arc of social change happening now. 'The Outsiders' offers the immediacy of the moment documented with the camera while reaching deep into photography’s history and speaking directly to its legacy. As always, Ms. Arbus offers the viewer dazzling technical and formal satisfactions while provoking story, emotion, a sense of time unfolding, and an incomparable relationship between photographer and subject. ‘The Outsiders’ consists of ten new photographs that premier at this exhibit.

We are delighted to continue our work with JEFFERSON HAYMAN. Mr. Hayman will present a new group of original photographs taken by the photographer, produced in his lab and then framed uniquely in his woodshop.
Jefferson Hayman is an artist whose work explores the themes of nostalgia, common symbols, and memory. Through a quiet minimalism and deep ties to the history of the medium, he invites the viewer to partake in the narrative process in a way that is both intimate and deeply personal.
Drawing from his education in the fine arts and his training in the art of frame-making, Hayman approaches his work with a deep understanding of traditional craftsmanship and a sense of artistic heritage whilst remaining tied to the present through the timelessness of aesthetic simplicity. Through an understated language of visual symbols and meditative studies, Hayman's work manifests as a visual journal chronicling transformation, discovery, and solitude, boldly stripped of the extraneous. Each photograph is handcrafted as a silver gelatin, platinum or pigment print, capturing a delicacy in tonality reminiscent of early Pictorial photography as well as the subsequent modernism movement's refined interplay of light and shadow. Finished prints are paired with antique or artist-made frames, meticulously custom-made by the artist, whose attention to the unique attributes of each photograph imbues every piece with a completely unique story and sense of personality.
Hayman's work is found in numerous private and public collections, notably the Museum of Modern Art Library, The Boston Athenaeum, The New York Public Library, the collection of Sir Elton John, and the collection of Robert DeNiro, amongst many others. In 2015 he was awarded the prestigious Pollock Krasner grant. He lives and works in Tappan, New York, a small historic village minutes from the heart of Manhattan.
