Standing Still

Photographs by Danny Singer
Dec 13, 2015–May 22, 2016

This exhibition offers eleven views of small towns on the North American prairie. Singer photographed the kinds of places most travelers overlook in their rush to get from one city to the next. The result is a series of what Singer calls “paper movies” that evoke the feeling of driving slowly down Main Street, taking things in a little at a time. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Mark Ruwedel

Friday, September 18, 2015 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

With grids of small gelatin silver prints hand-titled in graphite and arranged by type, Mark Ruwedel’s work straddles the line between documentation and conceptual art.

His photographs of the U.S. and Canadian West present landscapes marked by their human presence. These pictures reveal the histories of places that have been traversed, exploited, and built upon. Sometimes these marks are evident, other times they’re merely a trace, yet all show the West as a peopled landscape—even in its perceived desolation—and give evidence that human and natural histories are intertwined.

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: A Conversation with Danny Singer

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

Canadian photographer Danny Singer roams the North American prairie from Alberta and Saskatchewan south to the plains of Texas, making pictures in the small towns most travelers overlook in their rush to get from one place to the next. The result is a series of what Singer calls “paper movies” that evoke the feeling of driving slowly down Main Street, taking things in a little at a time. The slower one goes, the more one sees.

Photographer Alec Soth on Serendipity, Instagram & His Time in Colorado

Minnesota photographer Alec Soth’s pictures bring to light the quirkiness and humanity of people he encounters and the places where they live. From 2012–2014, Soth embarked on a series of state-by-state road trips to make a portrait of present-day America. His journey through each state that he visited was printed in a “dispatch” format that calls to mind a small town newspaper or travel guide. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Alec Soth

Friday, June 5, 2015 - 7:00pm8:00pm.

Photographer Alec Soth studies the habits and rituals of ordinary Americans, finding moments of self-absorption and vulnerability that are specific to the people he photographs, yet somehow common to human experience. Taking cues from the ambitious Depression-era documentary projects of the 1930s, Soth set out to create a state-by-state record of American life in the early 21st century. Photographed over the course of a 2013 road trip, Colorado Dispatch presents the core of Soth’s work from the Centennial State. More
