The Tall Tale

"Bed of Leaves", Pigment Print, 20 X 14 inches, 2013

Inspired by fairy tales, her daughter's vivid imagination, spirit photography and the mystery of the deep woods, in "Bed of Leaves" Maria Passarotti shows her daughter curled up on the forest floor with mysterious fireflies or wisps hovering above her. Displayed in a hand painted, vintage, convex glass frame, the work has the feel of a secret treasure stumbled upon in a dusty attic.

See these works and other Fairy Tale inspired works in "The Tale Tale" at Susan Eley Fine Art.

Nymphoto Presents @ Sasha Wolf Gallery

A group show exhibiting a compelling collection of work by contemporary women photographers from across the globe. While diverse in content, these works convey the complexity of the female gaze - the woman behind the camera. The photographs ignite a spirit by addressing a diversity of issues, which inevitably calls into question: what is feminine.

Night Moves - Exploring the Horizon @ Safe-T-Gallery

The photographic works of thirteen artists who toil under the cloak of darkness will be featured in two simultaneous exhibitions at two neighboring Dumbo galleries starting this March 5th. “Night Moves - Exploring the Horizon” will be at Safe-T-Gallery and “Night Moves - Angles of View” at Farmani Gallery. The shows, co-curated by Jill Waterman and Daryl-Ann Saunders, feature the work of photographers who understand how long exposures, unusual and distinctive light sources and the deep contrasts and colors seen only at night, bring clarity and insight to both the natural and the man-made landscape.
