ellsworth snyder | New Music CD and original artwork limited edition
"In September 1950, when I entered the Cincinnati Conservatory as a freshman piano major, I thought Rachmaninov and Debussy were contemporary composer! I was lucky to meet the composer and musicologist Charles Hamm. He immediately opened a new world for me by playing a recording of the Webern "Variations." Henceforth, my musical life would never be the same."
- ellsworth synder, 2001

Heliograms | Vivian van Blerk
"Heliograms" is a series of works by South African artist Vivian van Blerk. It's name is taken from the process of printing directly on to photographic paper using sunlight as the light source. It begins with this very early photographic process which allows him to preserve more of the purity of the individual element. That image is then intensified and the color is manipulated digitally. Every single heliogram can be printed in any color combination. For pricing and ordering info of any of the "Heliograms," contact JNFA.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1971, Vivian van Blerk has lived and worked in Paris since 1997. His work is in the permanent collection of the South African National Museum, LUMA museum in Chicago, and the Cite des Arts in Paris. By inventing fictions that unfold in parallel worlds close to our own, his photography exploits our tendency to read photographs as truthful documents. To make these photographs Vivian employs many medias. Sometimes he arranges found objects before the camera while for other images he will entirely construct, sculpt, model, and paint a scene and its actors. He also collages and montages imagery in the studio and darkroom, often retouching negatives and using alternative printing techniques to make strange his photographic universe.
