After Midnight

24.04.2014 | Art | BY:

Photgrapher Coco Young’s first solo exhibition explores the interactions between memory and photographic images. The title itself, After Midnight refers to those early hours of the night, when we either happen to be a sleep or perhaps a little intoxicated and so the show looks to see whether reality can be affected by the last images we saw or those visuals stored in our minds during these liminal states. To find out more about Coco Young look out for the upcoming issue, Twin X, where we speak with the photographer in her creative base in New York’s East Village

Elizabeth Gilpin, Tatiana de Pahlen & Carolina Cavalli will be launching their book YOUth, at the exhibition at the Half Gallery in New York. Bringing together images derived from the blogosphere, the publication creates a dialogue between photographers, visual artists, creative writers and authors (such as Coco Young, Coni Dietrich, Tatjana Radicevic, Colin Michael Simmons, Sophie Van Der Perre, Logan White, Ryan Young) who share their youth in the present-age.

After Midnight opens at the Half Gallery, New York on May 2nd. The YOUth book launch will be at the gallery from 6-9pm the same day.

Mom & Dad

07.11.2011 | Art , Blog | BY:

Terry Richardson’s images are conventionally imbued with a heavy dollop of sex and fun so it is refreshing to see him turn his lens to a more sober topic: that of his parents’ divorce. “My parents split up when I was four. It feels good for me to have them back together again, even if it’s in a gallery and only for a little while. It’s something I’m doing for me and in a way, for them.” -Terry Richardson, 2011

Having launched his two-volume publication MOM DAD at cult Paris store Colette, this month sees the accompanying exhibition head to New York’s Half Gallery.

His father Bob Richardson was a renowned fashion photographer while his mother Annie, currently living in Ojai, California, is a former Copacabana dancer and stylist. Their early divorce is irrelevant in Richardson’s NYC exhibition: hung side by side their portraits, as well as written works relating to his parents, see them reunited. Moving yet funny, in bringing his mom and dad back together Richardson attempts to reconcile not only his parents’ marriage, but his own origins and understanding of self.
