grav·i·ty


                            photographs by Risen Phoenix




GRAVITY features the figurative work of Minneapolis based photographer Risen Phoenix. Gravity is composed of 30 black and white prints on high quality paper. Gravity depicts the elegance and grace of the female nude in the studio and on location. Risen Phoenix has been published internationaly in galleries and fine art magazines. 





Risen Phoenix is a fine art figurative photographer working in the Minneapolis Arts District. His Black and White imagery prizes the elegant over the erotic. He has been a Mpls Photo Center member since its inception.
 
Introduced to the nude photography of Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham and Man Ray, Risen Phoenix was influenced mostly by their elegant compositions and their now classic use of light. The clarity of precise line and form found in nature was visually translated into his early environmental nudes and later adapted to studio settings..
 
Generally void of additional props and affectations, and elegantly floated within the frame, he captures both classical and modern dancers, gymnasts, figure models and yoga practitioners in a ballet of precise lighting and graceful shape.

 A London Fortnight
            photographs by Karl Dedolph



In conjunction with the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) Art-A-Whirl, the Minneapolis Photo Center (MPC) will be featuring a new exhibition - A London Fortnite, a portfolio of selected B&W photographic prints by Internationally recognized visual artist, Karl Dedolph. 
 
“The show opens on May 17th and will run for six weeks in the main gallery”, stated Jeff Harrington, MPC owner and gallery curator. “Karl’s London photography work is…., as the Brits say, “brilliant”; accentuated with deep blacks, pure and bold whites and a strong pallet of gray tones. As a street photographer, his composition and exposures are masterful, and the content can even be whimsical at times. A must see showcase during Art-A-Whirl.”
 
The opening reception of A London Fortnight will be on Friday, 17th of May. Know what I mean? It’s from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, “Yeah? Blimey, yaaahr invited, come and join us for a cuppa Rosie Lee awer worse. Pip-pip Cheerio!”
