Silver Eye Center for Photography>>Fellowship 16: Ka-Man Tse & Aaron Blum, Opening Reception, Friday, January 29 (Pittsburgh, PA)
Fellowship 16: Projects by Ka-Man Tse & Aaron Blumfeatures
solo exhibitions from our International Award and Keystone Award
winners, selected from an open call for entries in mid-2015.
The portfolios of Ka-Man Tse and Aaron Blum will be on view at Silver Eye Center for Photography from January 29 through April 2, 2016.
Join us for an opening reception on Friday, January 29 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Admission is free and open to the public. (Join our Facebook event.)
International Award winner Ka-Man Tse (Brooklyn, NY) showcases her series Narrow Distances,
which seeks to draw connections between LGBT culture and the Asian
Pacific Islander community, as well as Tse's own ongoing exploration of
home, identity, and isolation as someone who was born in Hong Kong and
raised in the United States. Tse's images, a mix of portraiture with the
crowded, yet intimate, backdrop of Hong Kong, allow her subjects to be
seen and express their own identity within a culture of silence and
Keystone Award winner Aaron Blum (Pittsburgh, PA) showcases A Guide To Folk Taxonomy,
which explores the mysteries of Appalachia, a cultural region that
spans the southern regions of the Appalachian Mountains, through a
series of images that are haunting, but beautiful. Blum, a lifetime
Appalachian resident, uses his own experience to create a personal
folklore for the region through "folk taxonomy," a self-made dialect
used to describe the culture and surroundings of a particular community.
This type of language, expressed visually in Blum's images, helps to
sustain those regional identities now and for future generations about
what it means to be Appalachian.

Golden Hour closes this Saturday, January 16, 2016!
Golden Hour: Thoughts on the Contemporary Photo Book is
a new and experimental exhibition. We think that the photo book has
entered an age of prodigious production, bold experimentation, and
outstanding quality so we wanted to explore new ways of sharing these
projects at Silver Eye. We asked some of the most innovative and
creative publishers, book makers, and photo centers to show us what
their books look like on the walls of a gallery. We gave our
collaborators free reign to show whatever they felt told the story of
their publishing program. Naturally, when you ask great artists and
publishers to express themselves, the results are stunning. Golden Hour has
fabulous images from recent or upcoming publications, experimental
installations, and thoughtful and evocative sequences that add a new
perspective to existing book-based projects.
exhibition was held in conjunction with our 2015 Photo Book Fair, and
features work that many of the book makers, publishers, and artists from
the Fair are working with today.
