Wishes: A Black and White Salon
May 26 – June 20, 2010

Opening Reception:
May 28, 2010 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Lowest East Side Gallery and Corey Presha are pleased to announce Wishes, a group show on view from Wednesday May 26th, 2010, through June 20th, 2010, with an opening reception on Friday May 28th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. This is the inaugural exhibition for the gallery, featuring work from a diverse group of young photographers. Opening reception is open to the public, all other visits are by appointment only.

Wishes provides a look into some of today’s most exciting contemporary photographers using the black and white medium in new and interesting ways as well as those steeped in the history of photography. Erica Allen, Grant Willing and Sam Falls’ work comment on the state of photography itself, using contemporary methods to push the medium into the next generation. Devin Yalkin’s high grain photographs capture the spirit of Japan in the 1970’s as well as contemporary practitioners such as Jacob Aue Sobol and Anders Petersen. Timothy Briner’s wonderful image WWIII from his series Boonville makes a statement on the state of America today while Pedro Arieta’s high contrast fashion photographs take cues from the past.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Erica Allen, Pedro Arieta, Timothy Briner, Asger Carlsen, Sam Falls, Grace Kim, Grant Willing and Devin Yalkin.

Hanging Up My Hat (For Now)

Posted in personal, Uncategorized by Corey Presha on April 28, 2010

– As you could probably tell from my lack of posting lately the blog has taken a back seat for now. I’ve been working too much, at my job and some new personal projects and I’m just a little burnt out from it. Thanks to Saul Robbins I will be guest blogging for the Camera Club of New York from September through December and I’m hoping to start compiling some really great content for that over the summer, fingers crossed it should be great! I’ll continue to update my tumblr site, so if your interested in my collections check it out here. I also recently added three new projects to my site Chroma, Artificial Sunsets, and Night Shift so please check them out. Thanks!

Action Photographer

Posted in personal by Corey Presha on March 1, 2010

– I just added a new “found” project to my website called Action Photographer. The pictures were taken in my hometown around the late 1960’s and are all of the local music scene. What I especially love about them is they represent the same scene that I grew up going to shows and playing in bands in, just 30 years earlier.
Check them out here.

Back, In The New Year

Posted in books, personal, photographers by Corey Presha on February 8, 2010

– Got burnt out on the blog for a while and thought I might hang it up in the new year but have decided to get back to it, theres just too many things exciting me right now. In the last month I’ve seen some really great shows and books, as well as some new work that I can’t wait to post about. It’s great to report that Alec Soth is back to blogging with the Little Brown Mushroom team, it’s already my new favorite blog. Another interesting new blog is The Independent Photo Book run by Joerg and Hester from Mrs Deane which announces independently published photography books and zines and where to find them, its a really great resource to find small run artists books that are usually hard to track down. Be sure to check both of those out. Glad to see people are still checking the blog everyday so heres to new content!
