93 Queen

I was very proud to have participated on this film, taking many of the still images.

2018. 83 m. Paula Eiselt. Abramorama/Film Collaborative/Tamar Simon. US. English. Rated NR. 

“Brings an instinctive yet clear-eyed sympathy for these women’s remarkable story, joined with an ability to be candid about the difficulties that arose within the group and with the greater Hasidic community.” (Los Angeles Times)

“A rip-roaring ‘only in America’ success story.” (East Bay Express)

Set in Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93Queen follows a group of tenacious religious women—including the one-of-a-kind Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a no-nonsense lawyer and mother of six—who shakes up the Hasidic “boys club” by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in New York City. Part of what motivates them is that strict prohibitions on contact between the sexes prevent some ultra-Orthodox women from calling for medical help when it’s needed. Director Paula Eiselt’s unprecedented insider access creates a unique and inspiring portrait of a group of observant women who take matters into their own hands to change their community for the better from within. An entertaining, feel-good documentary about women taking care of women.

LA Photo Curator, Confronting Mortality ,Juror Jane Szabo

The last eye to eye contact, followed by the final shallow breaths…. heat turns to cold.. a flower is plaxced by someone in his hand, as he transitions into the next realm.. life and death, beauty in sadness

Review from Curator Jane Szabo:

“Nina Weinberg Doran’s image , TRANSITION opts for lush color and clairty and seems to celebrate the beauty of a life..”

I Surrender, Dear, Umbrella Arts Gallery, Juror Frances Jakubek

Communication becomes stifled when the topic is sorrow. Gestures shift while contemplating mortality. Rituals are performed while the sky continues on despite us. Fifteen visual artists will show together and address aspects of navigating loss, foregoing the notion that grief is something better hidden away.

Portraits Without Faces

A juried international photography exhibition

September 28 – October 21, 2017

Portraiture emerged as one of the most prominent genres of depictive media early in the history of the visual arts; tacit or explicit rules, conventions and cultural expectations have always influenced the ways in which artists approached the genre. Photography is no exception. Numerous different and characteristic styles of portraiture emerged throughout the history of the medium. We usually assume that faces are necessary components of portraiture; we may, however, learn just as much about the character, the personality of a person by looking at images that depict other parts of their bodies, show us the objects or places associated with them. Not focusing on the face may open up a new dimension of interpretation. Our Portraits Without Faces exhibition is dedicated to this challenging divergence from the more conventional approaches to the genre.

  Quién? Qué? Dónde?” means  “Who? What? Where?” in Spanish.  Spanish is one of the worlds’ most commonly spoken languages and is often chosen as the second language one learns. The name was chosen for this portrait exhibition in order to underscore the complexities of all of our diverse roots. A portrait photograph can inspire many questions and if we look hard and long enough, the answers as well.

Providence Center for Photographic Arts, Open Call, Juror Julia Grahame


4th Open Call Exhibition, Jurored by Julie Grahame

4th Open Call Exhibition
Jurored by Julie Grahame

Exhibit on view: October 12 – November 3
Opening reception: October 19, 5:00 to 9:00pm

See the exhibit….

Juror’s Statement

With a healthy number of spots available in the show, and no over-arching theme binding the entrants, I was able to choose a wonderful variety of photographs for the exhibition of the 4th Open Call for the Providence Center for Photographic Arts. One gets very consumed by both the edit and then how the images will work together overall. Looking across the more than 1,000 images, I really wanted to include portraits, nature, abstracts, interesting processes, collage – and a little bit of politics. I tend to have quite traditional taste in photography, but I like to be challenged by innovative post-production as seen in a couple of the chosen pieces. It is also important to me to show that an artist need not necessarily stray far from home to make good work, and I think that comes across strongly.

We all see and take so many images every single day, but we are not all photographers. Congratulations to the winners, and commiserations to those with images not chosen, some of which I really struggled with.
