The past few months I delved deep into experimental portraiture, alongside this good ol’ evermorphing contemporary art that just wriggles when you try to pin it down. Portraits in flux started to emerge. I thought I’d share a step I took along the way for this recent exhibit at the Ice House in Sarasota- A draft gif that eventually inspired a continually looping stop motion.
My sister modeled for me. I think it’s fun to share that. Because it really just started with static photos, frozen moments. Just as it did with Talbot and Stieglitz and all the photographic torchbearers. I’m hoping to keep them from rolling in their graves but it’s a bit late for that perhaps, or a bit irrelevant. Who knows.
American photographer Alfred Stieglitz, born on the first of the year 1864, conveyed New York City as “The City of Ambition” in this 1910 photograph. As a new year dawns in Philadelphia, what are your ambitions and aspirations for the new year? Do they give New Yorkers a run for their money? #cityofambition
Photographer Alfred Stieglitz and painter Georgia O'Keeffe wrote each other more than 5,000 love letters over the course of their romantic relationship. In Stieglitz’s portraits of O'Keeffe, we are offered a glimpse into the intimate love shared by two great artists. Here are a few of Stieglitz’s photos in which O'Keeffe is both his model and muse.

Photographer Alfred Stieglitz helped found American Modern art by tirelessly promoting artists like John Marin, Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, and Charles Demuth at his legendary New York City gallery, 291. See how these artists, known as the Stieglitz Circle, wedded European modernism’s innovations to distinctly American subjects in our newest gallery installation.
