Opening Reception for Ed Templeton’s ‘Amalgamated Fragments’ 

Thursday, June 15, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Danziger Gallery, 95 Rivington Street, New York, New York 10002

A California native, Templeton grew up and still lives in the suburbs of Orange County.

Opening Reception for David Zimmerman’s One Voice

Thursday, June 15, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Sous Les Etoiles Gallery, 100 Crosby St #603, New York, NY 10012, USA

Over the past two decades, Zimmerman’s art has come to focus on endangered landscapes and cultures displaced by environmental, social, economic and political causes. “One Voice”  is an ongoing project that began in 2011. For the past six years, David Zimmerman has lived and worked amongst Tibetan refugees in Northern India, creating a series of intimate portraits. Photographing the exile is to make a state of the time. It is the time that passes and also the time which resists, which never ceases to address its question, its anger, its refusal, its energy of survival.

Roma. Friedlander is perhaps best known for his portraits of the American social landscape. But his photographic contributions are rivaled only by his prolific bookmaking.
