When: Thursday, October 2, 2014
4-8pm
Where: Austin Music Hall
208 Nueces St, Austin

The event is free and open to the public.

Canon recently approached Austin-based photographers Sarah Lim and Ben Sklar to capture images based on sensory triggers, that are inspired by the live music of Austin and hometown pride.

As part of a three-city series for Canon’s PIXMA PRO campaign, guests who walk through the exhibits at this will interactively experience a taste, sight, sound or smell trigger, before the image associated with that sense is revealed.

At the heart of the campaign, Canon’s PIXMA PRO Senses is all about bringing the photographers’ moment in a time to life and transporting individuals back to that experience, giving gallery guests the visual sensation exactly as it happened, through the power of print.

“The PIXMA PRO City Senses gallery series was created to highlight how very powerful a printed image can be—how it can evoke emotions and enable the sharing of meaningful experiences,”said Canon U.S.A. president Yuichi Ishizuka in a statement.

There will be a demo station on site, where guests can interact with the Canon PIXMA PRO printers. Canon will also be giving away cameras, printers, concert tickets and more.

Kettle Art Gallery presents “In the Heart: Downtown Photography from around the Globe” by Richard Andrew Sharum. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, 7-10pm. The exhibit runs through Saturday, November 1.

About the exhibit:

Richard Andrew Sharum debuts his compelling series documenting the often obscure landscape of urban spaces around the world and the inhabitants of these areas. Sharum’s images depict the contrast between flesh and architecture, the fragility of life juxtaposed with formidable concrete structures, and the light that both illuminates and deepens the shadows between them.

In recognition of Sharum’s work on the series abroad, he was selected among international applicants for the Magnum Photos (Paris) Masterclass with Jonas Bendiksen during HOST at FOTOGRAFIA EUROPEA 2014 in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and for the Magnum Photos (New York) Masterclass with Moises Saman and Abbas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both resulted in public exhibitions of his work in each respective city.

In Summer of 2014, Sharum launched “Observe Dallas”, a public installation project aimed at encouraging observers of anonymously placed photographs within the Downtown area to interact with their surroundings in unique ways.

Matthew Slimmer is an Austin-based producer whose clients include Target, Toyota, American Express and Bank of America. He shared a bit about his production business with ILTP:

“13 years experience as Producer & Production Coordinator for Still + Motion Photography. Working as a local in Austin, Dallas, Houston TX and Minneapolis MN. I manage workflow and schedules for several sequential and simultaneous contract jobs. I truly enjoy coordinating and planning.

Advertising is where I’ve made my path and I love being a part of this industry. I organize all the details of your shoot, for both small or large scale productions. I problem solve and streamline responsibilities of my crew. My favorite part of the job is making sure the photographer / director is open to make creative choices while I see that every shoot runs smoothly and efficiently.”

ALIENTO TEQUILA EXHIBIT OPENING – PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOEL SALCIDO
Exhibition opening September 13
7-9pm
Sam Z Coronado Gallery

From the Photographer: “This photographic series reflects the mythical space where the weight of history and the tyranny of earth transcends into a spirit called tequila. In this landscape of blue agave, I discovered the traditions of culture and religion, both ancient and modern – indigenous and foreign. Still there, in the midst of life, is the everyday toil of man, land and sky, unified in purpose to produce a spirit that is only true to the mythic character of Mexico and its people”.

Exhibit runs through November 29, 2014.

Music by Mariachi Relámpago y Los Alfansinos.

Event is free and open to the public.

Reading Magnum: A Visual Archive of the Modern World

The Magnum Photos collection, which contains more than 200,000 photographs by some of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries’ greatest image-makers, is the most comprehensive accumulation of prints made by the distinguished photo cooperative. Consistently and with striking artistry, Magnum’s photographers have done more than simply document the far reaches of the globe; they have helped shape generations’ understanding of the world around them. In this visual lecture, Steven Hoelscher provides an overview of the Magnum Photos collection, which is now part of the photography collection at Harry Ransom Center.

Dallas-based Jonah Gilmore recently shared a bit about his background and business with us:

Internationally-published photographer Jonah Gilmore grew up in the northwest, and has been shooting professionally since 2002. One of his first endeavors was starting a portrait and wedding studio in rural Eastern Washington State. From Washington he moved to Southern California in 2007, where he expanded his portfolio to include fashion, editorial, lifestyle, and advertising.

In 2011 Jonah moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where he currently resides, shooting lifestyle, advertising and a variety of commercial projects. Over the last 3 years he has been shooting an increasing number of commercial video projects as well under his company Studio Rocket Science.

Jonah’s creativity and flexibility of style in photography generates business in a wide variety of projects. He enjoys shooting everything from fashion & lifestyle to fine art and events. Jonah tailors his work to best suit the style of each of his clients to meet their needs. If he has to label his style he calls it “A.D.D. style” with a chuckle. A style that cannot be boxed into any given type, but rather is molded to every specific project.

He has also recently launched a new lifestyle photography brand in DFW called “Be+You”. Be+You is all about self-expression, having passion, and loving life.

Product photography

Dallas-based commercial photographer Aaron Doughterty shares some background on his work:

“I was drawn to the photography through my fascination of symmetry. At a young age the 35mm frame became a template to fill. I grew up near Chicago which gave me a surplus of industrial design to aim at, it consumed me.

Photographers Lewis, Baltz Bernd/Hilla Becherand and Harry Callahan’s work influenced me to understand that simple can be stark, beautiful and complex in other ways. Texture and shape are paramount to how I light and frame my compositions.

In my commercial work I love to approach a scene with simplicity in mind and emphasize the subtle to not so subtle details that others passively overlook.”
