Michael and Ron Heinlen: Photography Exhibit at JM Gallery

Join JM Gallery August 5, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring photography from Michael and Ron Heinlen.

 

JM Gallery is pleased to present works by Ron and Michael Heinlen, father and son photographers who look for the extraordinary hidden within the seemingly ordinary. Ron’s camera is his constant companion, and he collects images from around the world. Many of his photographs capture everyday city scenes—a man eyeing produce in a Boston storefront or a pair of beggars in Beijing—that appear fleeting, but reveal a sense of the shared humanity we too often forget. Michael finds beauty in ordinary and decayed forms, like the graceful lines and shadows of telephone wires or the suggestive patterns of crumbling concrete and broken glass in an abandoned building. He photographs common objects that we may “see” but that remain unseen, re-visioning them into novel forms and exposing the grace that surrounds us. Whether by memorializing the routine or by shifting perspectives, both father and son focus on the commonplace and elevate their subjects.

30% of all sales from this show will be donated to Big Thought. For 30 years, Big Thought has collaborated with local partners to bring creative learning opportunities to youth in Dallas neighborhoods with the greatest need. Students in these high-need neighborhoods do not have equitable access to crucial out-of-school education, which widens the opportunity gap. Big Thought develops and facilitates after-school, in-school, summer, and community programs that stimulate the imagination, instill and strengthen crucial social and emotional learning skills, and impact academic achievement.

truly, madly: Collaborative Photography by Kasumi Chow and Desiree Espada

xoxo

http://kasumianddesiree.com/portfolio/truly-madly/

Location: Murchison Performing Arts Center, University of North Texas
Spring Semester 2017, FREE

truly, madly is feeling wholeheartedly however shallow or deep. In this series of collaborative photographs by Kasumi Chow and Desiree Espada, the artists construct single colorful frames of common objects juxtaposed by portraits of young women, teetering between anxiety and euphoria. The photographs are glazed with mild angst, impulse, and deliberately awkward situations. There is a vanitas-laden visual syntax at work. However, these contemporary still lifes are more visually succinct in their delivery than their predecessors. A lopped off pony tail stands on its own upon a bright yellow backdrop, chola-style nails offer fist-fulls of lifeless gelatinous gummy worms, a ring pop is cast off into a glass of champagne. These works are not about eternal preservation or nature morte, but rather about unapologetically living in the moment, where humor and sorrow intersect all in the same square.

Reception March 3 for Jeremy Lock at JM Gallery

unnamed (39)

Join JM Gallery Friday, March 3, from 6 until 9 for an opening reception featuring photographs from Jeremy Lock. 

JM Gallery, 1722 Routh Street Suite 106, Dallas, Tx 75201

During his adrenaline-filled career as a military photographer, Jeremy Lock documented battles, disasters, and everyday life in Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan, Haiti, Mongolia, and many other locations. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for distinguished service in Iraq, and was named Military Photojournalist of the Year seven times. Though no longer in the military, Jeremy’s intense vision and passion continue to motivate and inspire him and his work. He travels constantly, documenting landscapes that evoke the frightening power and awesome beauty of our world and capturing images of the people who occupy it that evoke the essence and reality of humanity at its finest and its worst. As he explains, “Not only do I get to live my life, but I’ve been able to live the lives of those I photograph, even if it was just for a moment. I thrive on sharing those experiences.” For this show, Jeremy shares his experiences with a collection of aerial landscapes and portraits from around the world. The vistas and people, though far-flung and diverse, are united in his photographs by pattern, shape, color, and texture. African deserts, Alaskan tundra, an old man’s face—all very different, yet with so much in common, if we know how to look. These photographs help us to see past our differences and understand how much of the world and our human experience within it are held in common.
