A temperance song...
 
The Price of Drink
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
The price of a drink?
Let him decide who has lost his courage and lost his pride,
His honor and virtue, the wreath of fame
All high endeavor and noble name.
For these are the treasures thrown away
As the price of a drink from day to day.
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
 
"Five cents a glass!" How Satan laughed,
as over the bar the young man quaffed
The fiery liquor, for the demon knew
The terrible work that drink would do,
And ere the morning the victim lay
With his life blood ebbing swiftly away
And that was the price he paid, alas!
For the pleasure of taking a social glass.
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
 
The price of a drink! If you want to know
What some are willing to pay for it, go
To that wretched tenement over there
With dingy windows and broken stair,
Where foul disease like a vampire crawls
With outstretched wings on the mouldy walls,
Where poverty dwells with her hungry brood,
All wild-eyed as demons for lack of food,
Where shame in a corner crouches low
Where violence deals its cruel blow
And innocent ones are kicked and cursed
To pay the price of this dreadful thirst.
 
"Five cents a glass!" "Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
That that is really the price of a drink?

May 25, 2012 Cliché verre 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
Cliché-verre [Fr.] literally translated means "glass picture' and is a technique that combines art and photography and was used mainly by French artists including Jean Baptiste Corot, Jean François Millet, and Charles François Daubigny. It was normally done by using a smoking candle to coat a glass plate with soot. The desired picture was then drawn with a sharp instrument directly into the blackened surface and the resulting plate was used as a photographic negative and contact printed. Although mainly used in the 1860s the cliché verre technique has also be used by György Kepes and Abelardo Morell.

May 20, 2012 Native Americans 1840-1920 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
This exhibition includes many of the classic photographs by Edward S. Curtis, Humphrey Lloyd Hime, Timothy H. O'Sullivan, Alexander Gardner , Ben Wittick, De Lancey W. Gill, William Henry Jackson, Carl Moon, Frank Rinehart and numerous others. It also includes rarer Daguerreotypes along with photographs of the Indian delegations.
 
Whilst this is interesting it is only a partial story as it reflects how Native Americans were recorded by outsiders rather than themselves. Further exhibitions will address these issues.

May 7, 2012 The Trashcam Project 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
In 2012 Mirko Derpmann and Christoph Blaschke of the German advertising and marketing agency Scholz & Friends of Berlin decided to experiment with using rubbish dumpsters as pinhole cameras. Working with the Hamburg Sanitation Department they spent five days visiting locations selected in conjunction with garbage collectors. A hole was drilled in a dumpster and large sheets of light sensitive photographic paper from a 30m roll were used. The Trashcam series of pinhole photographs continue the earlier tradition of Justin Quinnell and his Wheelie Bin camera.

Apr 29, 2012 Appropriation 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
An introductory online exhibition of appropriation within photography. It includes photographs of signage by Walker Evans and the appropriation of his photographs by Sherrie Levine, the photograph by Alfred Stieglitz of the "readymade" urinal by R. Mutt (Marcel Duchamp), the photomosaics of Robert Silvers and examples by Robert Heinecken, Thomas Allen, Richard Prince and Andy Warhol. I have included some examples of photomontages used in political postcards as these are related themes.
 
Given the ongoing legal case over the Rasta photographs between "artist" Richard Prince, the Gagosian Gallery and the original photographer Patrick Cariou this is a timely subject.
