ABOUT THE BOOK
Internationally renowned artist and University of New Mexico alumna Meridel Rubenstein creates photographic artworks that engage the natural world and investigate humanity’s place within nature. Eden Turned on Its Side looks at ecological and human processes across time that either reinforce or destroy the notion of “Eden.” Focusing on poetic intersections of nature and culture in relation to ecological and social imbalance, the work consists of large-scale photographic images that tend toward immersive installation, as is characteristic of much of Rubenstein’s art. It comprises three parts — Photosynthesis, Volcano Cycle, and Eden in Iraq — which respectively explore ecologies on the scales of human time, geological time, and mythical time.
“Eden Turned on Its Side is not presented as a timeline but as a natural cycle of life, death and rebirth where human beings and nature are deeply connected and exist in true symbiosis.”
 – PATRICIA LEVASSEUR DE  LA MOTTE, France/Singapore, Independent Curator

Her works are in prominent collections including the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California; among others.

Moscow: Big Ballet by Sasha Gusov

June 28 - September 23 at the Lumière Brothers Center of Photography

Sasha Gusov. Nina Kaptsova. Corsaire. London, 2016

The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography presents an exhibition from photographer Sasha Gusov, which will display a cycle of photographs of the Bolshoi Ballet Company. The exposition will include about 50 unique shots made during the period between 1992 to 2016, from behind the scenes of the "big ballet", the brand that emerged during the first and incredibly successful tour of the Bolshoi Theater troupe in 1956.

Sasha Gusov’s photos perfectly convey the dynamics and expressiveness of ballet dance. There are among them beautiful staged portraits and fascinating, finely grasped shots of rehearsals and performances. Shot on film, "on the move" and without additional lighting, they captivate with their efficiency. "Photography is documentary – it just fixing something that is happening in a particular moment," says the photographer. And Gusov, like no other, knows how to masterfully catch these random situations. Nevertheless, he not only fixes the event, but also skillfully conveys the state of the caught instant.
