What: "Beyond the Facade: Cuba Revealed" Photographs by Jay Seldin
When: July 27 - September 14, 2012
Where: 73 Gallery See, 73C Pine Street, Montclair, NJ
Master photographer Jay Seldin’s work draws the viewer into the streets, dwellings, workplaces and lives of this special island that has been “forbidden” to US citizens for so many years. Each of his photographs is a narrative speaking volumes through atmosphere, light, composition and color when Seldin so choses. Jay’s documentary style portraits act as visual short stories revealing meaning as he captures the subtle nuances of gesture, personal interaction and posture.
The still-lifes and city/countryscapes literally “freeze” the unique reality of this isla’s persona allowing the viewer a seemingly tangible experience to wander in and explore.
All works in the exhibit are available in very limited signed and numbered editions. Contact the Gallery with inquiries.
In addition to Seldin’s works Jay has curated work from the CPE Photo workshop collective that travelled with him to Cuba in April.
This selection of their photographs will also be on view at the gallery.
