My work is included in the FALL 2009 SERIES along with work by Anna Collette, Sergio A Fernandez, Greg Miller and Jo Ann Walters.

This is a great opportunity to get some beautiful prints for a fraction of the price.

The September Issue

Last September I was doing my residency at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. This week I went up there for a few days to visit and finally show them some of the finished prints and get some good feedback and editing advice. It was great to spend a few days there. 
This week I also began a workspace residency provided by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). I will have my own studio space downtown for 9 months and get to work alongside many talented artists and writers! 
I started this blog one year ago because I wanted a place to show my work in progress while on residence at CPW.  So it seems September is my month for beginning residencies, let's just hope this trend continues next Fall!

Opening Night!

So this is it. Labor day is here, no more white shorts and dresses, back to school, back to work. Summer is officially over but that means one thing to look forward to here in NYC. First Thursdays are back in Chelsea in full force. There will be a lot of great shows to go check out, but this Thursday I will be at ClampArt for the much awaited New York show of Amy Stein's Domesticated. See you this Thursday 9/10/09 from 6-8!


September 10 - October 31, 2009
ClampArt is pleased to announce the exhibition of Amy Stein's photographic series, "Domesticated"- the artist's first show with the gallery.
In this body of work Stein explores the archetypal motif of man verses nature. More specifically, her photographs explore the tenuous relationship between man and animals as human civilization continues to encroach upon nature. Informed by actual newspaper accounts and oral histories from citizens of the small town of Matamoras in Northeast Pennsylvania, which borders a state forest, Stein's photographs are inspired by true events.

The artist writes: "My photographs serve as modern dioramas of our new natural history. Within these scenes I explore our paradoxical relationship with the 'wild' and how our conflicting impulses continue to evolve and alter the behavior of both humans and animals. We at once seek connection with the mystery and freedom of the natural world, yet we continually strive to tame the wild around us and compulsively control the wild within our own nature. Within my work I examine the primal issues of comfort and fear, dependence and determination, submission and dominance that play out in the physical and psychological encounters between man and the natural world."

Amy Stein was raised in Washington, DC, and Karachi, Pakistan. In 2007, she was named one of the world's top fifteen emerging photographers by American Photo Magazine. Her work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and in Europe, and her photographs are represented in such prestigious public collections as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno; the San Jose Museum of Art, California; and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Arizona.

Copies of Stein's first monograph will be available for sale during the run of the show. [Domesticated (Portland, Oregon: photolucida, 2008), 64 pp., 25 color illus, $24, with an essay by George Eastman House curator, Alison Nordström.]
