After the inaugural exhibition of Studio Stanos at our Cape Cod location in the summer of 2021, we are excited to present our second Photographer Exhibit Steve Pool (born in 1942), this time in New York. We have titled the exhibition May flowersa reference to the saying “April showers bring May flowers” and a nod to the rebirth and renewal that spring brings.
Against deep black backgrounds, the images are reminiscent of Dutch floral still lifes and at the same time look like modern portraits. About his process, Steve said, “Photographing flowers and plants is a bit like photographing children. It’s reflex and momentary.” Each work has its own personality. There are some surprises in the show, like the brilliant Diminuendo, Layers and In the closetshowcasing the breadth of Steve’s artistic output.
Alongside works by Steve, we are honored to present new works by the photographer Chris Travers. Chris (b. 1969) has a spectacular sense of composition when capturing views and through meticulous editing creates majestic depictions of landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes.
The show will run through June 30 in our Upper West Side “living room”. Catalog available here: May flowers. We invite you to email us to schedule an appointment or inquire about pricing and availability: [email protected]
About Steve Pool:
Born in Brooklyn, Steve lives and works on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He has a wide range of photographic interests – culture, still lifes, portraits, travel and food. He has provided photography for a number of cookbooks and often works with his wife, cookbook author Judith Choate, on their own projects. The quality of light in his images is both soothing and captivating.
About Chris Travers:
Raised just outside of Boston, Chris started taking pictures in fourth grade on family summer trips, and he continued that tradition by exploring new places with his wife and twin children. He greatly admires the work of adventure photographers like Jimmy Chin and Chris Burkhard, and his photography is influenced by the painters he studied at Hamilton College for his art history minor, including his favorite, Edward Hopper. Chris’ painterly style reflects his lack of interest in accurately reflecting reality, and more so his desire to capture the feeling he felt upon releasing the shutter.
