VOGUE Italia: Hoodooland: un progetto a sostegno dei nativi americani

September 24, 2020

I territori incontaminati dell’Ovest, negli Stati Uniti, che accolgono le tribù dei nativi americani, sono in pericolo. Come testimonia il nuovo progetto fotografico di Priscilla Rattazzi, in mostra a New York,  che attraverso il suo lavoro contesta la decisione di Trump di espropriare due milioni di acri di territorio protetto nello Utah

“When Trump put those lands in jeopardy I was horrified. How could anyone want to ruin a landscape of such staggering beauty?” said Ms. Rattazzi, sitting among the thirty-six black and white pictures that are part of her exhibit. They will be shown for seven weeks until November 7. “The land is stunning and you feel you are walking on sacred grounds.”

“Hoodooland,” an exhibition of photographs by Priscilla Rattazzi, is opening today at the Staley-Wise Gallery in SoHo, continuing through Nov. 7. Ms. Rattazzi, who lives in New York City and East Hampton, photographed the weathered, mushroom-like rock formations in southwest Utah known as “hoodoos,” a name brought to the Americas by enslaved Africans.

“When Yermo and I went to the Wahweap hoodoos for the first time at 3:30 A.M., he gave me a headlamp and insisted he didn’t need one,” says Priscilla Rattazzi, whose photographs of southwestern Utah, featuring the primeval rock formations known as hoodoos, go on display at New York’s Staley-Wise Gallery next week.

If you head out to the desert of Utah (perhaps for a stay at the remote Amangiri resort, which recently opened a set of luxury tented camps deeper into the property) you are likely to find hoodoos: tall, thin, mushroom-capped columns of rock formed by years of weathering and erosion. These geological wonders have enchanted the celebrated photographer Priscilla Rattazzi since she first visited southwest Utah 10 years ago and explored Lake Powell and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Discover Our Interview with Stephanie Pfriender Stylander Protagonist with Louise Dahl-Wolfe, of "2 Women of Style" at Staley-Wise Gallery

May 27, 2020

Two times of modern age. Two chapters of fashion history. Two different visions of sensuality and femininity. Two iconic artists. Louise Dahl-Wolfe and Stephanie Pfriender Stylander are featured at the ongoing exhibition at Staley-Wise Gallery of New York (currently available online and extended through the summer). Stars of magazines over thirty years apart, the works of the two fashion photographers reveals the evolution of elegance from the 40s-50s to the 90s-2000s. “Louise and myself approach fashion photography from opposite directions. Opposites eventually strike each other out which brings you to zero. Zero is our equal and our equal is our behavior.”

Se titula Lagarteranas en misa, está fechada en 1925 y es, seguramente, una de las imágenes que mejor haya ilustrado nunca lo que significa la fotografía al servicio de la etnografía. Ahí están, de la mano, historia y tradición, las invariables que apuntalan el concepto de nación. La cámara de José Ortiz Echagüe fue uno de los instrumentos que, desde una perspectiva tan política como filosófica, ayudó a principios del siglo XX en la reconstrucción del mito nacional español –entonces tan necesitado tras la crisis de 1898–, documentando el legado de usos, costumbres, ritos e indumentarias de un país que, en realidad, ya no tenía interés alguno en perpetuarlo. Lo contó el propio fotógrafo: los lugareños que retrataba protestaban por tener que posar con las viejas vestimentas que identificaban sus orígenes. En todas partes, menos en Lagartera, un pequeño pueblo al oeste de la provincia de Toledo, donde las mujeres siempre se han sabido fabulosas en sus trajes tradicionales.

The Guardian: The Best US Exhibitions for Women's History Month 2020

March 2, 2020

In 1979, a group of women in Santa Rosa marched in a DIY parade holding up a banner that read “Sonoma County Celebrates Women’s History Week”. No one could have foretold that this grassroots initiative, founded in 1978, would become the foundation of a worldwide Women’s History Month.

In the years that followed, the National Women’s History Project was born, just as women’s history made its way into school curriculums across the country. In the 1980s, President Jimmy Carter recognized Women’s History Week, and Bill Clinton recognized Women’s History Month in 1995. This year, there are numerous exhibits across the US that celebrate great female artists. Here are eight of them.

Where are all the great women fashion photographers? Ahead of women’s history month in March, one exhibition is looking at two key figures of the female gaze in fashion. Opening March 5, the Staley Wise Gallery in New York features two trailblazing women who broke ground in fashion photography; 2 Women of Style is the name of this two-woman exhibit showcasing the works of Louise Dahl-Wolfe; who shot for Harper’s Bazaar in the 1930s, and Stephanie Pfriender Stylander; a New York photographer who shot Kate Moss in 1991, when she was just 17. Granted, there are countless women fashion photographers who changed the game, from Regina Lelang to Deborah Turbeville and more recently, Ellen von Unwerth. Here, Pfriender Stylander shares her personal history as a photographer, her triumphs, challenges and what she respects most about actors.
