The series “Liminal” by Joshua Zucker-Pluda is an investigation into absence. He is interested in the idea of memory as phantom: an ineffable presence that haunts us. By studying the presence left behind in certain spaces, Zucker-Pluda captures loss and expresses the notion that something can only be truly felt when it is gone.
Joshua Zucker-Pluda is an artist, filmmaker, and musician based in New York City. His work has been shown in New York, Paris, Tokyo, and Berlin. Joshua divides his time between directing editorial and commercial projects, and playing bass in a hardcore punk band.

An exhibition of new work by Nicholas Nixon is currently on view at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. It is Nixon’s fourteenth solo exhibition at the gallery. Comprised of approximately thirty works dating solely from 2012 and 2013, this is Nixon’s first exhibition to interweave photographs made both in black-and-white and color.
Known for penetrating portraits of couples, the ill and elderly, and an ongoing annual portrait (begun in 1975) of his wife and her three sisters, Nixon is a master of rich, telling detail. His new work is comprised of intimate self-portraits with his wife, Bebe, and landscape views made in France and his neighborhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This exhibit runs through July 27, 2013. – courtesy Fraenkel Gallery.

Letha Wilson‘s work uses imagery from the natural world as a starting point for interpretation, construction and confrontation. A broad range of techniques and materials are used – photography, sculpture, installation, concrete, wood – in work that blurs the lines between abstraction and representation, landscape and architecture. The ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photograph’s failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Landscape photography as a genre is approached with equal parts reverence and skepticism. Letha Wilson’s work is on view at Art in General until June 29th. She is currently represented by Higher Pictures in New York City. All images below courtesy of Letha Wilson.

“Dennis, Pheasant Hunting” All Images © Jordan Baumgarten
Jordan Baumgarten‘s project “Average Americans of the Right Type” is an investigation of class and masculinity within the subculture of American Hunters. The project was made over the course of a year in a variety of places: New England, Upstate New York, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. During this time, Jordan learned how to hunt, allowing him to photograph this world as a participant, giving him an insider’s perspective into this community of men.
Baumgarten is a winner in the Hearst 8×10 Biennial. His work, along with the other Hearst Biennial winners will be on on display at the Hearst tower in New York City April 2nd through August 31st.

Steven Lippman shot these self-portraits (gnarly, right?!) using the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. Surfing with a camera attached to your arm or board takes some getting used to. It’s all about personal preference on what type of angle you want…GoPro has done a really great job of making the camera small, lightweight and versatile.
Lippman loves to surf in Malibu during the winter, but also enjoys traveling and surfing in remote parts of Indonesia. “The best time [to surf] is when all the elements come together – wind, swell direction and tide.” Follow his adventures on Instagram @stevenlippman.
Moments: Surf Culture by Steven Lippman opens March 21st at 5th & Sunset Studios in Los Angeles. GoPro donated equipment for the show which will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to A Walk On Water. Lippman is represented by Stockland Martel. (more…)
