June 12: Project 5 Special Reception and Fundraiser JD Gallery Venice

From a P5 mailer:

“Special Reception and Fundraiser for Project 5!

When: Saturday, June 12th, 2010 7-10p.m.

Where: The Julia Dean Gallery at 801 Ocean Front Walk, Venice CA 90291

Project 5 spans five years, over which five photography auctions will be held to fund five socially concerned pohtographic projects, each documented by a team of talented photojournalists.

The first (silent) auction was held at the Stephen Cohen Gallery on Feb. 20, 2010. On the walls hung 108 photographs reflecting 108 talented photographers. It was a wonderful night and we raised enough money to conclude the child labor project (the first of five in Project 5).  At the end of the night, there were 36 outstanding photographs remaining. These 36 prints will be hanging at our special reception. ALL FRAMED PRINTS WILL BE $300 OR LESS! (You can take your print home that night.) Our goal is to raise money toward year 2 of Project 5. For more information:

-June 12th is also World Day Agaist Child Labor. Ending child labor is the topic of P5’s first documentary project.

– There will be an additional reception and exhibit opening in our second gallery, featuring work by participants on the Buenos Aires/Uruguay travel workshop.”

Gerry Badger and John Gossage in Conversation

Tuesday, June 8, 6:30 pm

On Occasion of the Publication of 
The Pleasures of Good Photographs
by Gerry Badger

The Pleasures of Good Photographs (Aperture, June 2010) is an intellectual and aesthetic excursion led by Gerry Badger, one of photography’s eminent critics and popular writers. On the occasion of its publication, Aperture is pleased to present a conversation between Badger and his contemporary—celebrated author and photographer John Gossage. Drawing from the nearly three decades of writing and thinking about photography presented in Badger’s new volume of essays, Badger and Gossage will offer insight into their favorite images, artists, and themes.

The Pleasures of Good Photographs showcases primarily new essays, with a few classics thrown in for good measure, making it an important addition to the canon of photographic writing. A book signing will follow the conversation.

Gerry Badger, a photography critic for nearly thirty years, is himself a photographer, as well as an architect and curator. He has written for dozens of periodicals and his previous books include The Photobook: A History, Volumes I and II, coauthored with Martin Parr, and The Genius of Photography: How Photography Has Changed Our Lives, a companion volume to the esteemed BBC television series. Badger lives in London.

John Gossag
e is well known for his artist’s books and photographic publications, and has produced seventeen books and boxes on specific bodies of work. He is the author of The Pond, to be reissued by Aperture in September 2010. In the 1960s, Gossage studied briefly with Lisette Model and Alexey Brodovitch. Since then, his work has been exhibited worldwide. His photographs are held in numerous private and public collections, including those of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gossage lives in Washington D.C.
