Peter Essick – New Book

Fernbank Forest – by Fall Line Press

The book is the result of a commission from Fernbank Museum to document Fernbank, a 65 acre old-growth forest in Atlanta proper, during a period of restoration. Essick photographed the forest over a two-year period with the goal to produce a personal vision of this natural ecosystem that can coexist with a large metropolitan city. The book contains an insightful essay by Janisse Ray, an American author whose work grapples with the beauty, intricacy, and heartbreak of the biosphere. She tells the story of how Emily Harrison worked to preserve the forest beginning in the 1930s.

Fernbank Forest has also been featured in the following publications:

Telfair Museum Features Edward Weston

On March 2nd the Telfair Museum in Savannah GA opened an exhibition titled: Bonaventure: A Historic Cemetery in Art, it will run until September 23, 2018. Lumière was pleased to loan a photograph of the iconic cemetery taken by Edward Weston for the exhibition.

In May of 1941 Weston and his recent bride Charis Wilson began a trip working on a commission to illustrate a new edition of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. The journey would cover 20,000 miles through 24 states, after the attack of Pearl Harbor in December they curtailed the project and returned to California. During this trip Weston took between 700 and 800 8×10 negatives as well as dozens of Graflex portraits.

Photography as Propaganda

Photography as Propaganda

Politics and the Utopian Dream


The exhibition illustrated how artistic expression and creativity can coexist with photography’s ability to abstract time and space, providing a potent vehicle with which to communicate a point of view.

Whether migrating a nation to a utopian social and economic order or framing public policy debates, the power of the photographic image was used effectively in the 20th Century by both totalitarian and democratic leaders.

This exhibition illustrated its’ power to inform and influence. It reminded us of the future impact potential of imagery to amplify ideas using an array of new electronic technologies.

Including photography by: Boris Ignatovich, Dorothea Lange, Yevgeny Khaldei, Peter Sekaer, Ivan Shagin John Gutmann, Alexandr Ustinov, Rondal Partridge, Max Alpert & Georgi Zelma

Peter Sekaer . . . In Context – Collector’s Gallery

Peter Sekaer . . . In Context – Collector’s Gallery

Featuring the exceptional photography of Peter Sekaer                                                     in the context of other notable artists of the period.

Berenice Abbott            Arnold Newman          Alexander Rodchenko
Dorothea Lange             John Gutmann            Rondal Partridge

Sekaer, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1901, immigrated to the United States in 1918. After successfully operating a printing business in New York City producing posters, advertisements and window displays, he enrolled in the Art Students League in 1929 to study painting.

By 1934 Sekaer had left painting behind to study photography with Berenice Abbott. Through his friendship with Walker Evans he secured contracts from 1936 to 1943 to work on assignment as a photographer for various government agencies.

“Sekaer’s photographs show an outsider’s objectivity and detachment coupled with an insider’s commitment and concern for the subject.”
Julian Cox, Curator of Photography, High Museum of Art

The exhibition was organized to compliment the High Museum of Art’s exhibition, Signs of Life: Photographs by Peter Sekaer.

Celebrating the work of Alexander Rodchenko born on this day in 1891. Rodchenko was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after the Russian Revolution. He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles—usually high above or below—to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition. He wrote: “One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole a#lumieregallery&#AlexanderRodchenkol#rodchenkon#sovietphotographyhenko

Celebrating the work of Robert Glenn Ketchum on his 75th birthday. Ketchum's imagery and books have helped to define contemporary color photography while at the same time addressing critical national environmental issues. This has made him one of the most successful artist/activists in American history. His work in Alaska illustrate this point, first in the Tongass Rain Forest, where his images were credited with helping to pass the Tongass Timber Reform Bill of 1990. One of his current efforts is in Southwest Alaska, aimed to protect the largest wild salmon habitats from the ill-advised Pebble Mine. Wishing you many more years to continue your work!!
