EXTENDED until January, 2013
We have had an overwhelming response to our Harold Feinstein | A Retrospective exhibition that we have decided to EXTEND the exhibition until January, 2013.
For us at Panopticon Gallery, and to all of the people who have been part of re-introducing Harold Feinstein's classic black & white work to the masses, I have to say that this has been one wild ride on the Coney Island Cyclone!

In the private room
Stephen Sheffield's photographs depict both everyday and unusual events, all framed by his unique, and occasionally dark, sense of humor. His masterful storytelling, use of traditional film and non traditional photographic techniques including, alternative processes, mural printing, and large-scale photo assemblage combine to give his work a unique and cinematic mood.
***We will be hosting a gallery talk with Stephen Sheffield in early December.***

Emerging Artist | FEATURED
Alipio Hernandez is a recent graduate of the New England School of Photography. His series 'Ambiguous' was inspired by stories his grandmother use to tell him when he was a young child growing up in Venezuela.
Alipio uses clothing dye to tone the portraits in his gelatin silver prints before he cuts them apart and stitches them back together. In some instances, these rather straight-forward portraits become abstracts - facial features are moved around and/or double exposed, creating a sense of movement and obscurity.
Atelieri O. Haapala
I met Saara Salmi and Marco Melander this year at FotoFest in Houston, TX. They were my very first meeting on the first day of the portfolio review event. I was surprised and excited to see this husband and wife duo using a 19th century photographic style to display their unique portraits. The look and feel of their cabinet cards were mesmerizing. I was hooked!
Atelieri O. Haapala is a Neo-Victorian portraiture studio and brainchild of Helsinki, Finland based photographers Saara Salmi and Marco Melander. The studio seeks to create and renew the Victorian epoch by means of photography and performance art. The protagonists of this reenactment are Mrs. Onyxei Haapala and her faithful companion Mr. Helmut Schweinstein.
Atelieri O. Haapala does not aspire to faithfully replicate history, but rather to create fiction nostalgically inspired by the visual realm of the 19th and the 20th century, an era characterized by optimism and strong faith in technological development.
