OBC artist and photojournalist Dominic Nahr‘s photographs from South Sudan have been included in an audio slideshow posted on The New Yorker earlier this week on South Sudan’s first year of independence. See the images and hear Jon Lee Anderson’s description of the landscape of the new country here.
Dominic Nahr’s photographs from South Sudan will be exhibited at his third solo exhibition Fracture at O’Born Contemporary from October 12 – November 10, 2012. Find more information about this exhibition on the exhibition page.
Gallery artist Noel Rodo- Vankeulen‘s work has been featured alongside Olafur Eliasson, James Welling, Ann Woo, Florian Maler- Aichen, Jessica Eaton, and Thomas Ruff in The New Yorker’s photo department blog In Focus in a special selection of rainbow- inspired images “in celebration of the passage of the gay-marriage bill in New York”. Every image is accompanied by an excerpt of the artist’s words with the editor; it is a fantastic weekly photo blog, and a great collection of images as well.
Dominic Nahr and Ed Ou, OBC gallery artists, were both featured in The New Yorker’s Memorable Documentary Photos of 2010. Writer Whitney Johnson asked ten photographers to choose a memorable image from 2010 of their peers, and Dominic and Ed were included. Check out the post here.
