Photographs With Teeth
Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries

Poet Sean Thomas Dougherty has said, “How can we wake up if the words don’t bite us--hard--sometimes?”  The same is true for photographs.  “Photographs with Teeth” brings together works by Yunghi Kim, Cori Pepelnjak, Karolina Karlic and Greta Pratt.  These internationally recognized photographers explore the working class, the 99 Percent, socioeconomic inequity and the costuming of patriotism.

Kim’s photographs of the Occupy Wall Street movement garnered a World Press Award, and Pepelnjak’s series “By the Week” documents individuals who live in motels by the week. “The Dee” (slang for Detroit) series, by Guggenheim fellow Karlic, uses vacant automobile factories and single-family homes stalled in construction standing silently as metaphors for economic crisis and its effect on a community.  Pratt’s “Liberty Wavers” brings together the issues of labor and the rhetoric of patriotism. Taking place on the eve on the Presidential election, this exhibition creates a timely conversation about contemporary America.
