L.J. Goldstein: The Sacred Areas
December 4, 2014 – March 15, 2015
Opening: Saturday Dec 6, 4pm – 8pm
The show features the work of photographer L.J. Goldstein who has been making pictures of New Orleans street celebrations, second lines, jazz funerals and Mardi Gras Indian gatherings for over twenty years.
In 2008 he traveled throughout the Middle East, from Egypt to Israel and beyond, photographing the landscape Moses travelled while leading the Hebrew slaves to their promised land.
The exhibition explores two areas that are held to be of tremendous spiritual meaning all over the world: New Orleans and the Middle East. Prints from black and white negatives are displayed in conjunction with those made in full color from digital files. This is the first time these two bodies of work have been presented together.
Private gallery tours are available by appointment. There will also be a “soft opening” with a group show for a new gallery featuring the work of second-line photographers who belong to “The Backsteppers Social & Pleasure Club” adjacent to The Brass Camera Fine Photography Gallery.
