Join photographer Frank Ockenfels and Gallery Director David Fahey in conversation about Frank’s work and his new monograph, Volume Two. 

As a highly visual astute and rapid observer of the world around him, Ockenfels takes in a kaleidoscopic abundance of images that serve as artistic stimuli for his creative mind. A process of collision, collusion and collaboration is the genesis of his creativity, leading to the transformation of a photographic image into something else, a “re-presentation” of what he saw through the lens.

Considered one of the most influential contemporary American artists, Carrie Mae Weems has investigated family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems, and the consequences of power. Determined as ever to enter the picture—both literally and metaphorically—Weems has sustained an on-going dialogue within contemporary discourse for over thirty years. During this time, Carrie Mae Weems has developed a complex body of art employing photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, and video.

Keith Carter, a Texas native with a modest background, became a world-class artistic photographer. Many years later, he has not forgotten his roots; Carter still lives with his wife in Beaumont, Texas. He transforms the mundane details of small-town life into the sublime, revealing mystical, quirky, and difficult facets of human (and animal) nature.

Keith Carter has published nine monographs, including Bones, Ezeikel’s Horse, Mojo, and Holding Venus. People, especially children, and animals are frequently the subject matter of his pictures.

Todd Hido is a San Francisco Bay Area-based artist whose work has been featured in Artforum, The New York Times Magazine, Eyemazing, Wired, Elephant, FOAM, and Vanity Fair. His photographs are in the permanent collections of the Getty, the Whitney Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the de Young Museum, the Smithsonian, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as well as in many other public and private collections. He has over a dozen published books to his credit.
