David Nadel has photographed the remains of burned-down forests in Northwest Montana for much of the past four winters. A resident of the state, he hikes up mountains and treks through trail-less terrain while lugging a large-format camera. He shoots color, though many of his images look like black-and-white etchings. His exhibition, “Burn,” is on view at Sasha Wolf Gallery in New York through March 26.
The gallery’s description of Nadel’s images notes, “Where a dense, green, classically beautiful forest landscape existed all that is left, post wildfires, are the stark and devastated monument-like remains.” (more…)

On March 3 an exhibition of Scott Conarroe‘s “Shore” project, a series of landscape images exploring the coasts of North America, will open at Toronto’s Stephen Bulger Gallery and run through April 2. Notes Stephen Bulger Gallery, “Canada has the most expansive coastline on Earth; its boundary with the United States is the world’s longest non-militarized boarder. Together these two nations form a vast geo-cultural bloc that extends from polar extremes to the tropics, from sparse hinterlands to modern metropolises. [Conarroe's work] presents a study of North America on the cusp of a new climatic era. Cataclysmic weather and global social upheaval are anticipated, but for the time being they are seen as problems for others elsewhere. Conarroe’s photographs present the fading innocence of this idyll and a visual reference of the current state of the continent’s shorelines.” Conarroe has also traveled extensively in North America documenting the continent’s railway infrastructure. That series, “By Rail,” can be seen on his Web site, here.

With a homicide rate nearly eight times the national average, New Orleans stands today, as it did as far back as the 1850s, as the homicide capital of the United States. Today it is the third most deadly city on the globe. Tooth For An Eye: A Chorography of Violence in Orleans Parish is a series of tondo photographs documenting contemporary and historical homicide sites in New Orleans. This collection of images was recently published by Twin Palms. Too see more of Luster’s work click here.

Seattle Mariners All-Star right fielder Ichiro Suzuki goes deep into the gap in right center to rob Atlanta Brave Robert Fick of an extra-base hit. Andruw Jones was on first base and was headed for third when Ichiro made this incredible grab. Jones cut across the infield failing to touch second base on his way back and was doubled off of first base. The Mariners won the game 2-1.

‘Dance Recital’ is a personal project made over several years of young girls backstage during their dance recital performances. The moments are captured spontaneously, without direction. ‘Ballet’ is a series of images that are a look into a classic ballet class at the Joffrey School of Ballet, and was produced by Image Source. Both series touch on ideas about body image, the concept of beauty, and the social pressures girls face growing up in America. – Carey Kirkella. To see more of Kirkella’s work click here.
