Michal Chelbin: Strangely Familiar
Through October 31, 2010
"Because I shoot portraits I can say that people are my first inspiration. They are intriguing, mysterious, and unsolved.
Michal Chelbin (from 9/4/2008 interview on Nymphoto)
| Jenya in My Hotel Room, Ukraine, |
Color Coupler Print 2005
Michal Chelbin (born 1974, Haifa, Israel) started making pictures when she was 15, and honed her skills as a photographer during her compulsory service in the Israeli military. Following four years of study in Haifa, Chelbin began pursuing personal photographic projects and traveled in Russia, Ukraine, England, and Israel making the portraits that appear in Strangely Familiar (also the title of her 2008 Aperture monograph; The Black Eye
, her new book, is forthcoming from Twin Palms). More information >>Read the review in the Boston Globe >>

Exhibition Review -
Heights of Observation: Vittorio Sella
| Vittorio Sella, Crevasse on the Glacier Blanc, Grand Sagne and Ecrins, Alps, August 13, 1888 |
Born in Biella, Italy in 1859, Vittorio Sella began his photographic career as a young man setting out on missions to climb and photograph the nearby Alps. This hobby soon turned into a passion and Sella's missions became increasingly challenging and dangerous. At that time, photography as a medium was still new. Although the technology had come a long way in just a short amount of time, the equipment remained large and cumbersome, not to mention fragile - hardly the point-and-click shooting we think of today.
