The Fine Art of Fish Photography

A new show at the Robert Mann Gallery looks at how artists have used seafood as inspiration.

By Florence Fabricant

Sea creatures have figured in art since ancient times. This summer, the Robert Mann Gallery in Chelsea will display 29 photographs dating back to the 1890s in which fish and other seafood are the focus. The dinner table is often involved, as in this stunner of Picasso by David Douglas Duncan.

“Sleep With the Fishes,” July 8 through Aug. 16, Robert Mann Gallery, 525 West 26th Street, 212-989-7600

Holly Andres featured in Six Women Artists Furthering Cindy Sherman’s Vision

Six Women Artists Furthering Cindy Sherman’s Vision

by Jacqui Palumbo

There’s an eeriness to Holly Andres’s cinematic images, which often delve into girlhood, and are drawn from the filmstrip of Andres’s own adolescent memories.

The Portland, Oregon–based photographer uses protagonists who “reflect stereotypes of innocence and girlish femininity,” but the underlying themes in her work are intentionally unsettling, she explained.

Her 2015 series “The Fallen Fawn” looks like a Nancy Drew mystery, with two young girls discovering a lost suitcase in the woods. The narrative was based on Andres’s older sisters, who told her several years ago that they found such an item as children, not far from their home. Her sisters stashed it under their bed, regularly dressing up in the women’s clothing they found inside. It didn’t occur to them that the owner of the contents may have been in danger.

Elisabeth Hase — Badeszenen, c. 1932-33

The New York Gallery will be presenting work by the German photographer Elizabeth Hase. Largely unknown outside of her home country, Hase is best known for her works that examine and critique gender roles and personal identity. In this stirring self-portrait, she gives the viewer access to a private moment, but one that is filled with verve and an intensely outward expression of energy.

10 Must-See Artists at AIPAD’s Photography Show

Maroesjka Lavigne

by Alina cohen

Though Maroesjka Lavigne’s 2012 work Autobus, On the Road pictures a treeless, snow-bathed landscape, its brilliant hues save it from austerity. There’s a neat symmetry to the work, with a pink rooftop and red bus jutting just past each other, both covered in a layer of white powder. The dusty white sky is a lush, purplish blue at the edges. “She has a very unique way of visiting a location and capturing it,” said gallerist Robert Mann, who first found the young Belgian artist’s work in Foam Magazine in 2012. Autobus, On the Road hails from Lavigne’s body of work devoted exclusively to Icelandic landscapes. In the years since, she’s also documented such far-flung locales as China, Chile, and Namibia.

Photographer Jem Southam captures the majesty of New Zealand

By Josh Lustig

Best known for British landscapes, the artist departed radically from his usual working methods for his latest project.

Over the past four decades, the Bristol-born photographer Jem Southam has been documenting the English landscape. His work, made in series, takes the form of long-term studies of selected sites, often spanning several years; delving deep into the individual histories of his locations, they eschew the sentimental, idyllic, single-frame vision of the “English countryside”.

Pets, Peeves, and People of Nextdoor

Nextdoor.com calls itself the “private social network for your neighborhood,” and a photograph on the app — of a clean white sidewalk carving a path through lawns of manicured grass — conveys that this is a safe space. People seek and find babysitters, dog-sitters, house-sitters. They raise money for local causes, furnish the homes of those in need. They also display a fair bit of paranoia about “suspicious” characters lurking on street corners. And every day, in every neighborhood, a cat goes missing. Here, a sampling of people in the greater Portland area who took to the site over the course of a month to connect with their neighbors.
