Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

The Coalition of Photographic Arts and the Art*Bar are pleased to present the Super-"Calatrava"-Listic Exhibition, to be held at the Art*Bar from July 19 though August 22, 2013. The juror is Don Krause, owner of the Art*Bar.

The Quadracci Pavilion, affectionately called the "Calatrava," is probably the most photographed building in the city, and every photographer likely has at least one image of it in their portfolio. The idea behind this show is to compare how different artists/photographers "see" the building. It is an iconic structure, but every photographer has a unique "eye," and this promises to be a fascinating look into all the different kinds of ways artists are able to portray the same, highly recognizable subject.

Hard Ecology will run from July through mid-September, and Tamarack will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 1:00 to 6:00 for viewing, and of course by appointment.

The impetus for this article was a recent conversation with self-described “Analog Man,” a fine arts photographer who uses only film and has no interest in social media, yet wants to sell his work. I was intrigued by the whys and wherefores of that stance in this digital age. Knowing a couple of other photographer friends who were similarly reluctant -- but many more who do share online -- I set out to discover what photographers think about this issue.

Being familiar with many of these photographers' work, I will warn you, we are talking to some heavy-duty talent here. And, bonus: all of this talent comes with well-thought-out stances about why they do what they do.
