In December

Connections to the past, the nature of light both visible and invisible and the act of seeing itself—or preparing to see—are the subjects under consideration in December through the photographs of six artists at Soho Photo Gallery. Images range in technique and process, including the 19th century impressionistic bromoil printing.


Exhibition Dates: December 4, 2013 – January 4, 2014

Opening Reception: Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 6 to 8 PM

Circus of Memories 

Jill Skupin Burkholder


This work captures unrelated objects in antique shops and presents them as fascinating pictures of what we leave behind and of memories we can’t quite recall. When an object loses its context, it becomes part of a larger reality—the seemingly random collection of stories, ideas and histories that make us human. I give the images a sensuous, translucent quality by combining the 19th century impressionistic bromoil printing with the encaustic process using beeswax.

The Unseen Light of Ireland

Sarah Corbin


Infrared light brings out the mystical quality of the barren landscape of Ireland’s County Mayo. It reveals moss-covered ruins and sometimes entire villages that were home to the people who perished in the Famine. A separate show of color images—Ireland’s Light and Color—focuses on how the quality of light from Ireland’s ever-changing skies creates deep, magical color in the rugged landscape below.

Mike Cullen


I like that moment just before your eye clicks into focus on an image; for me there’s a slight twinge of anticipation as the photo comes into focus. This series toys with that aspect of human vision that lies just ahead of focus and understanding.

Seis Senderos en España

Martin Frank


Don Quixote told his companion that “this adventure and others of its kind are not about islands, broken heads or the loss of an ear but about pathways….” These images of pathways were made for my wife Laura during an adventure in Spain, September 2012, in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary.

Venetian Motifs

Andrzej Haladuda 


These 17 photographs, made in Venice from 2004 to 2012, are part of a larger body of work focused on Italian culture. Venetian Motifs traces my stay in this enchanted city. The images capture the moments lived in this paradise and are, above all, a tribute to the romance of Venice’s golden age and its lasting beauty. The days of the Venetian miracle were numbered. My days are numbered too. But both are preserved in imagery and memory.

Tir na nÓg 

Raphael Senzamici


These images document my search across Ireland for Tír na nÓg, a land described in Irish folklore as an earthly paradise populated by supernatural beings—a land of eternal youth, music, strength, life and all pleasure. In the end, I think I found Tir-na-nÓg and a love of Irish culture.
