Photographs – An Unspoken Dialog
August 4 – August 31, 2022
Opening reception: August 6 at 5PM
From the Curator: Each year for the past the few gallery seasons, we have presented a two person show, that has focused on the idea of an unspoken dialogue that unconsciously evolve between two working artists, working independently, but in a close relationship…husband and wife, partners in life, best friends, parent and child, etc. This year the unspoken conversation is between a father and daughter, both photographers, both recognized, and well respected for their craft and vision, and both with a strong focus on portraiture, that digs deeply below the surface, to the inner working of their subjects, and often tells us more about their subjects than we feel totally comfortable in knowing.

Rosa Polin is a photographer from Brooklyn, New York. She earned her BA in photography from Bard College in 2016 and her MFA in photography from the Yale School of Art in 2022. Her work has been published by Vogue Italia, TIME Magazine and Dazed Magazine. Selected group exhibitions include When Ethics Meets Aesthetics, Leica Galerie, Milan, IT (2018); PhotoVogue/Visions, BASE Milano, Milan, IT (2017), and Labs New Artists, Red Hook Labs, Brooklyn, NY (2017).
Bruce Polin is a Brooklyn based photographer, born in NYC in 1960, who began taking pictures at age 14, known best for his intensely intimate black and white portraits. Polin studied photography at the School of Visual Arts and later received a BFA at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. In addition to making and exhibiting his photographs, Polin has written and lectured on photography, and received many accolades, and significant critical acclaim. The images in this show are a significant sampling of his most recent work, and while seemingly a giant departure from his more familiar large format black and white portraiture, they are distinctly similar in their intimacy and conveyance of sympathy and understanding of the human condition.
