The I Photo Central website (http://www.iphotocentral.com) has added a new feature on its menu bar: Special Exhibitions (http://www.iphotocentral.com/showcase/showcase.php). This new addition will allow the web site to show special exhibitions by theme or photographer.
The first two Special Exhibits are: 19th Century Master Works by Master Photographers and Caramella di Carlo: Body of Evidence.
Nineteenth-Century Master Works by Master Photographers is accompanied by an essay that discusses the early and rapid evolution of photography as a new art medium. Twenty-eight images have been selected from I Photo Central's inventory to represent some of the top early (1843-1874) master image-makers. All the images are currently for sale.
I have discussed Caramella di Carlo's work above, but it is worth stressing that her images are stunning, and her thoughts on her image series in her artist statement are really worth reading, whether you are a collector or a fellow photographer. Such passion and intelligence for the work is mostly lacking today, which further distinguishes di Carlo from so many of her contemporaries.
We will be posting up other Special Exhibits in the near future.
