About the Item

Thomas Alleman’s urban landscapes convey the pulsating energy and sensual excitement of city life. With an eye for the visual rhythms and geometry of buildings, highways and parks, his photographs transform ordinary structures and events into emotionally charged images of modern life. Through Alleman’s lens, the evening rush hour becomes an abstract in motion, shimmering like jeweled brocade. Alternating between reality and fantasy, his image is rich in emotional content. By carefully organizing the disparate objects inside the picture frame, Alleman creates surreal images that are wholly photographic ­ a reality that only a camera can see. Most of Alleman’s photographs feature a dark circular halo that surrounds the image and draws the eye into the picture’s unique reality. This non-digital effect is caused by the Holga camera he uses. “The Holga’s bizarre optics,” Alleman explains, “have given me access to a realm of richly textured suggestion, impression and allusion.” Alleman’s influences include Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lee Friedlander and Garry Winogrand. A graduate of Michigan State and a successful commercial photographer, Alleman has received many prestigious awards over the years for his photojournalism and portraits. Among them, the 1995 California Newspaper Photographer of the Year Award, the 1996 Los Angeles Photographer of the Year, and the Mark Twain Award from the Associated Press 1997. Alleman lives in Los Angeles. Listing is for UNFRAMED print. Inquire within for framing. Edition 1 of 25.

  • Glyph 1 (Black and White Abstract Photo of Reflections in Water)
    By Lependorf and Shire
    Located in Hudson, NY
    Limited Edition Archival pigment print 25.5 x 31.5 inches Unframed This elegant archival pigment print was created by Shelly Lependorf and Stan Shire as part of their Glyph series. The somewhat abstract nature of the photograph's subject makes it difficult to identify at first, but upon closer inspection, it depicts a highly reflective pond surface with thin, curved branches sticking out of it, is implicit of symbols or handwriting, thus the title. Artists' statement: The foundation for our work is the photographic image with the optimal quality of light. Selecting the interplay of composition, form, rhythm, and line is the focus for our imagery. Integrating these elements in the computer is the next stage in the process of merging our visual and intuitive sensibilities toward a completed vision. Different perceptual effects arise from recording the world in photographs as opposed to interpreting it in paint: Our goal is not to emulate painting. Conceptual work in all mediums has blurred the line between photographers who make art and artists who use photography. The digital medium has established itself in the natural continuum of art history and the ongoing relationship of art with technology. This work forces us to consider a more serene world while reminding us that no contemporary experience is unmediated; technology touches everything. The use of the computer as a tool does not create; it assists creativity resulting in a synthesis of disciplines to be realized as a limited edition. The combination of archival pigment inks on Crane Fine Art paper framed with archival mattes and backboards insures permanence in excess of 175 years. The creative process will always remain in the mind and the soul of the artist. About the artists: Stan Shire is Professor Emeritus and former chair...
