Iris Gallery - Refreshed Website

If you see an image in the slideshow, and want to know more about it, simply click on the photograph and it will take you to the artist's page.
We hope you enjoy the subtle changes & new look.
The Story Behind the "Girls In the Windows"
Ian, who runs the Aspen gallery, recently came across this article in the British newspaper "The Guardian" about the story behind Ormond Gigli's great and certainly best known image, "The Girls In the Windows". We thought you might enjoy reading the back story about how it happened.
Sean Kernan's new series, "Winter Light"
Aside from an enormous worldwide teaching and lecture schedule, Sean Kernan embraced the cool and early darkness of Winter in his new series of images, "Winter Light". While many were done near to his home on the shoreline of Connecticut, he also captured images while he was giving a workshop in Istanbul.
"Deep In A Dream - Central Park" - Michael Massaia
Michael Massaia has been in Central Park, NYC again with his 11x14 view camera taking photographs very late at night and adding images to his "Deep In A Dream" series. The image above was shot on film in what is known as the North Woods section of the park with an exposure of close to an hour and Michael is making split-toned silver gelatin prints from the negatives.
In other news, it was recently announced that Michael was one of the winners of the Hearst Corporation's Biennial International Photography competition in which there were over 1,600 entries from across the U.S. and 78 additional countries.
"Antigua Lilies" - Lonny Kalfus
Lonny Kalfus has a new series of water lily images that he photographed on the island of Antigua where he found some very different lilies. He said that "wandering around in the early morning light, the lilies were glowing with surprising colors when backlit. Unexpected whites, island
greens and yellows... beautiful and graphic."
Alessandro Puccinelli's amazing images of the ocean have been chosen to be used in advertising the "RuhrTriennale" festival of the arts, as seen in these posters. It's a large music and arts festival that runs from mid-August through mid-October located along industrial heritage sites of the Ruhr river in Germany, which have been transformed to into venues for music, theatre, literature and dance.
Alessandro has also received notice that he is one of ten finalists of the Hasselblad Camera awards in the Fine Art division. The award winners will be announced in early 2014. We wish him luck!
