I can’t stand to see you cry listed as one of MoMA’s favorite Photo Books

Rahim Fortune’s I can’t stand to see you cry was listed by the Museum of Modern Art as one of their favorite photobooks of the year. Phil Taylor of MoMa writes, “Part elegy, part essay on time and place, Fortune’s book grapples with love, grief, family, community, and the presence of history and of those who precede us, all finely rendered in the subtle tonal gradations of black-and-white photographs.”

The was also listed as a top ten photography book of the year by Smithsonian and photographer Alec Soth. For more about the artist and to see a selection of his work, please see our Artist page.

Paul McDonough’s Headed West Published by Stanley/Barker

Paul McDonough’s new book, Headed West, has been published by Stanley/Barker. As Hilton Als of the New Yorker so aptly put it: “McDonough’s project, it seems to me, is a kind of record of his life as a walker… his pictures are a map of experience, of his consciousness. He is a thinker who looks through the eye of his camera to distinguish truth from reality.”

You can purchase the book here.

Caleb Charland at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

Caleb Charland has numerous pieces included in a beautiful show at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.

From the Museum’s press release:

Visionary, mystical, and utopian practices are crucial to New England’s culture, history, and character. From the experimental agrarian communities founded in the 1840s, such as Brook Farm and Fruitlands, to the intersections of spiritualism and experimental psychology at the turn of the 20th century, New England has long developed alternative ways of nurturing community, personal growth, and societal reform. Related artists and writers frequently united their intimate connection to nature with a search for access to alternate dimensions or higher powers. Grounded in this rich history, this exhibition features original commissions and existing artwork by twelve contemporary artists who are engaged with these themes. Artists include: Gayleen Aiken, Caleb Charland, Anna Craycroft, Angela Dufresne, Sam Durant, Erin Johnson, Josephine Halvorson, Paul Laffoley, Michael Madore, Candice Lin, Tourmaline, and Kim Weston. Bridging past and present, their work will be shown alongside earlier art and artifacts that speak to these enduring qualities of the region and their relevance today.

Through March 14, 2021
