        SILVIO WOLF: IN THIS PLACE: Interview by David Rapoport (American, b. 1960). About Silvio Wolf (Italian, b. 1952), and his work. Mr. Wolf, talks about time and place, two variables that relate to his work. Silvio Wolf is a photographer, artist, instructor, teacher, mentor, and an exceptional creator of abstract photographic imagery. In this interview, Mr. Wolf describes the unknown, and looking into some other, perhaps intangible space. He describes art and spirituality with a higher intelligence, and spectacular eloquence. I am greatly indebted to him, for what he has taught me in this field, school, and in life. Special Thanks to: Silvio, Charles Traub, E. Bowes, Mary Patierno, and Elinor Carucci. www.RAPOPORT.com/teachers © 2010 by David Rapoport. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

          (ABOUT) ME is about the image of me: What does the camera see? Is something moving in the air? Is it light, is it substance, or is it something else? Is there a presence there? Can we see it? Is it moving? Is is easy, or is it hard to tell? Do you sense that there is some energy flying around? Can camera can see it? Is it visible to the eye, while the action is taking place? It is all in the imagination.

            On October 9th, 2013 Aperture and Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery hosted a conversation on the career and influence of Eikoh Hosoe, widely acknowledged as a pioneer of expressionistic post–World War II Japanese photography. Hosoe, whose oeuvre spans over fifty years, has explored the human body’s physicality as a subject that reveals a shifting interior landscape of dreams and desires. Panelists Russet Lederman, Kunié Sugiura, and Charles Traub share their knowledge as researchers, critics, and fellow artists about Hosoe’s groundbreaking work from the 1960s onward. Traub and Sugiura concentrate on Hosoe’s influence on their generation, while Lederman introduces an overview of Hosoe as a postwar photographer with a focus on his role as a teacher and catalyst for an East-West dialogue. Excerpts from Hosoe’s 1960 film Heso to genbaku (Navel and A-Bomb) are be shown alongside photographs during the discussion. This panel was made possible with the support of Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery, and was presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Eikoh Hosoe: Curated Body 1959-1970, on view through October 19, 2013.

              MFA Photo, Video, and Related Media Project at the SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS (NYC): Chairperson: Charles Traub, and Thesis Advisor for this project: Elinor Carucci. From THESIS: ”WOMEN:” explores reality and the way we perceive it as individuals in how it relates to chance and circumstance. Through making my images, I share what I already know, as well as what is beyond my ability to comprehend. There is no substitute for the ‘magic’ when I ‘live’ into every photograph. For those who look at them, my purpose is to demonstrate what I wish to communicate: freedom, openness in manner, truth, attraction, fascination, fulfilled desires, pleasure, safety, belonging to one another, and ultimately, the possibility to communicate love. All of the works were shot on medium format film. I hope that this work inspires you, or has inspired you in the past, for good, and greatness.. www.RAPOPORT.com /// © 2010 by David Rapoport.

                      Jason Oddy (British, b. 1967) talks about his motivation to photograph mostly empty spaces, from an intellectual, academic, and Buddhist perspective. He photographs scenes which mostly have no people in them. He makes the association of these spaces with certain childhood situations in his life. His photographs of interiors include Stazi headquarters, Nazi Headquarters, KGB, the Pentagon, Hospitals, Sanitariums, and other empty or abandoned places. Where Mr. Oddy has been, and what he has seen, will blow your mind. When I look at Mr. Oddy’s work, I realize how small I am in the scheme of things, and this makes me very thankful. This interview (interviewer's voice is edited out) and Film-work is by David Rapoport (American, b. 1960), completed in 2008. I give special thanks to: Charles Traub, Lyle Rexer, Mary Patierno, Ed Bowes, and the School of Visual Arts, for making this film possible. www.PHOTOANDART.com /// © 2008 by David Rapoport.
