Oceans | David Burdeny

Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present Oceans, the latest series by David Burdeny. Oceans explores the geological formations of water bodies in the Bahamas, Australia, and Europe, capturing the complex, abstract qualities of the deep sea. Burdeny’s scenes are celebrations of the natural world, but, below the surface, they map a precious and precarious resource. Serpentine sandbars stretch into a Bahamian horizon; Australian bays are sharply rendered fields of impossible blue. Long exposures—evident in views of Sicily—soften waves, revealing formations beneath the water. Bodies that dot the cliff sides cast long shadows, indelible marks on an expanse otherwise untouched. The contemporary sublime is for Burdeny both a call to action that compels one to protect her world, and a message about culpability. Receding vistas are the dreamy escape; human presence is the sobering reminder. Like the depths his exposures reveal, Burdeny unearths layers—of not just the landscape—but the fraught relationship between the earth we inhabit and the environmental future we inherit.

David Burdeny (b. 1968. Winnipeg, Canada) holds Masters degrees in Architecture and Interior Design, and is the recipient of notable photography awards including Photographer of the Year (Nature category) at the International Photography Awards.
This exhibition has been selected as a featured exhibition for the annual Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

The Long Wait

The Long Wait
Ed Morris, Photographer / Writer

When is a good day to capture an image? Well, there’s no such thing as a bad day. That’s how I approach my photogra- phy. When I’m out and about I’m always on the lookout for perhaps a sudden change in the light, the interplay of light and shade, the curving contours or linear appearance of a scene, maybe a striking combination of colours or of patterns and textures. They’re all out there waiting to be found, to be explored and to be interpreted in a new way. There’s always something to grab ones attention as long as you keep an open mind and an open eye.

Equilibrium

Equilibrium
Photographs by Jon Kolkin

Work exploring the landscape, capturing the motion of water where it meets the earth.
Utilizing camera movement, combined with the photographic element of time, to create evocative images.
The photographs display a sense of graphic design within a universal theme of harmony and balance.

jonkolkin12a jonkolkin12b jonkolkin12c jonkolkin12d jonkolkin12eJon Kolkin is known for his minimalist style, stripping away all distractions and focusing on the sole of his subject matter. Like many artists before him, Jon has had a love affair with both the arts and the sciences. He was first introduced to photography as a young boy working in his father’s darkroom. He expanded his artistic horizons, becoming a nationally recognized clarinetist who toured Europe with the National Youth Symphony.

These passions, combined with his fascination with the sciences, resulted in Jon’s decision to pursue a major in chemistry at Emory University with a minor in the Arts. After college he received a degree in Medicine and has been a practicing Hand Surgeon for over 29 years. However, he never abandoned his love for the arts, taking photography courses at night while simultaneously completing his residency in Orthopedics. Jon has found novel & unique ways of combining his dual passions. He travels around the world as a medical volunteer while simultaneously working on photographic projects. Jon serves on the faculty of the Maine Media (Photographic) Workshops and is a frequent lecturer on the topic of using photography as a tool for achieving personal growth.

His captivating images have won numerous awards and have drawn the attention of private collectors throughout the United States and abroad. His work is also included in corporate & museum collections as diverse as the Ritz Carlton, the Carter Center for International Peace, Emory University, the Maine Museum of Photographic Art and Bank of America. Jon’s artwork has also been featured in numerous solo & group exhibitions around the country and in prominent photography magazines such as B&W, Color and Camera Arts.

Vassilis Tangoulis
Fine Art Photographer

Vassilis Tangoulis is an International Award-Winning Black and White Fine Art photographer based in Greece. Vassilis is mostly known for his Black and White long exposure landscape photography but he also experiments in color and tries to enter this technique to different photographic genres. His photographic vision is better described as capturing the time in a world where “present” is only an infinitesimal part of time, a fleeting illusion dividing almost infinite past and future.
