Carolyn Marks Blackwood’s images are on view at the Alan Klotz Gallery in New York in a show called “The Wind Blows Through My Heart.” The poetic title seems appropriate for her deceptively simple photos. Blackwood photographs moments when elements — ice on the Hudson River, clouds in the late afternoon – are being transformed by wind, sun, or tides. As the gallery’s notes for the show explain, her shards of ice look like forbidding landscapes, and her clouds are “the meteorological equivalents of brushstrokes.” (more…)

As a contemporary ode to Nature, the image series “Creation” by Catherine Nelson contains sublime and dreamlike elements, staged as serenely revolving spheres. Photographs of nature are blended with digital techniques to give shape to these transcendental landscapes. Every image is meticulously composed with thousands of precisely assembled details, capturing the essence and peaceful strength of various imaginary places. Nelson’s photographs are on view at Galerie Paris-Beijing in Paris until June 2, 2011.

Since the 1960s, Wessel has photographed vernacular scenes of the American West, particularly in California. Immediately drawn to the quality of light he encountered during a visit from New York to Los Angeles, Wessel moved cross-country to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1971. From stretches of dusty highway to modest California bungalows framed by telephone poles and palm trees, Wessel’s often spare and solitary images capture the idiosyncrasies and irony of American life with a wry objectivity. His photographs of parking lots, beach-goers, and shrubbery — all illuminated by the brilliance of Western light — find beauty and intrigue in the commonplace and document the social landscape in a manner that is casual yet formally compelling. An exhibition featuring 29 vintage photographs taken by Wessel from the late 1960s to the late 1980s opens tomorrow evening at the Pace MacGill gallery. The exhibition is on view until July 11, 2011.

Bidding winter farewell and welcoming spring, Risaku Suzuki‘s (*1963, Japan) first European solo exhibition, Yuki – Sakura, at the Christophe Guye Galerie in Zurich presents photographs from various series of works focusing on the enticing, emblematically Japanese subjects such as the cherry blossoms. Suzuki‘s show coincides with the Sakura Celebration, one of the most popular spring events in Japan. Like the annual festival, Suzuki’s images celebrate tradition, renewal, and the inevitable passage of time from one season to the next. To see more of Suzuki‘s work click here.
