PHOTOVILLE 10TH ANNIVERSARY JOSEPH RODRIGUEZ PRESENTS: TAXI EXHIBITION

20 SEPTEMBER, 2021

"A Fantastic opening night evening what a line up!
Photoville’s 10 Under 10 featuring presentations from The New York Times, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Abrons Arts Center, Magnum Foundation, Pulitzer Center, Indigenous Photo, United Nations Women, Joseph Rodriguez, The Darkroom Masters, and National Geographic featuring live music from Carnegie Hall’s Lullaby Project.

Joseph Rodriguez discusses his experience photographing TAXI: Journey Through My Windows 1977–1987, a portrait of the gritty chaos and community of New York in the 1970s. The book is composed of photographs captured from the driver’s seat of documentary photographer (and cab driver) Joseph Rodriguez’s taxi—including scenes of night workers getting off their shifts, children jumping through the spray of open fire hydrants in the summer, and S&M partiers leaving clubs, zipped in leather, in the early hours of the morning."

WEAR THE RIGHT THING - JAMEL SHABAZZ, MOHAMED BOUROUISSA & SARA SADIK

15 SEPTEMBER - 23 OCTOBER, 2021

"Does wearing a tracksuit nowadays define one’s origins and generation or gives others an idea of how one envisions the world?
The Wear the Right Thing exhibition translates this notion into contemporary art through the lens of three artists from different generations, Jamel Shabazz, Mohamed Bourouissa and Sara Sadik, all of whom show, preserve and document the culture and style of diverse communities.
As part of this exhibition, designs by Balenciaga and apparel and accessories contributed by private fashion collectors from across the world will be on display, adding to the spirit of freedom and irreverence of streetwear."

During floods, the two often merge as if the river were widening.

PRAEMIUM IMPERIALE AWARD FOR SEBASTIÃO SALGADO

14 SEPTEMBER, 2021

"Internationally acclaimed photographer, Sebastião Salgado’s powerful black and white works are instantly recognizable, works that put a spotlight on the dispossessed and exploited, the beauty of nature and the fragility of the world and its inhabitants. As political refugees, he and his wife Lélia moved to France from Brazil in 1969. Initially trained as an economist, he took up photography full time in 1973. He works thematically, using only natural light, his photos posing serious questions about the imbalance of wealth and the impact of wars and disasters. Sahel captured the famine in Africa, Workers, the realities of manual labor, Migrations, the realities of migrants and refugees while Genesis is an homage to the Earth’s natural beauty. Since the 1990s, Salgado has been actively involved with environmental and reforestation issues through the Instituto Terra, an organization that he established with his wife in his home in Brazil. His latest work, Amazônia, is a seven-year exploration of the Amazon ecosystem and the way of life of its indigenous people. The book, Amazônia, was published in May 2021 and an accompanying exhibition is currently touring the world."

Miron Zownir in Palermo - DER POET DER RADIKALEN FOTOGRAFIE

21 MAY - 31 JULY, 2021

Curator: Gaetano La Rosa

The Centro Internazionale di Fotografia presents the exhi
bition „Zeitwirdknapp | Non c'è più tempo – Retrospektive 1977–2019“, comprising the complex œuvre of Miron Zownir, the poet of radical photography.

The show will be on view in Palermo until July 31, 2021.


Jamel Shabazz - Prospect Park: My Oasis in Brooklyn

on view in Prospect Park near Lefferts Historic House, NY
until December 1, 2021

"Who knows how long the man had been fishing by the edge of the lake in Prospect Park, standing near a thicket of lush trees and staring blankly at someone behind him: Jamel Shabazz, a photographer who took the man’s photo in 2010. For Shabazz’s latest exhibition, 'My Oasis in Brooklyn', there are 25 more images like this one. […] Captured over decades, the shots honor the park’s legacy at a time when its most cherished building, Lefferts Historic House, is being restored."


Salgado Amazônia - Philharmonie de Paris

20 MAY 2021 - 31 OCTOBER, 2021

Curator and scenographer: Lélia Wanick-Salgado 
Original musical soundtrack for the exhibition: Jean-Michel Jarre 
Exhibition in collaboration with the Geneva Ethnography Museum

"For seven years, Sebastião Salgado immersed himself in far corners of the Brazilian Amazon, photographing the forest, rivers and mountains, and the people who live there. On his journeys deep into this realm—where the immense power of nature can be felt as in few places on earth—his photographer’s eye captured striking images, most being shown here to the public for the first time.

Accompanied by an original soundtrack—a ‘symphony-world’ created by Jean-Michel Jarre using concrete sounds from the forest—the exhibition also gives voice to the indigenous communities photographed, via their testimonies."


In the Gallery with: Bene Taschen

July 5, 2021

By Miss Rosen

“Art was always a part of my life,” says gallerist Bene Taschen, the son of world-renowned German book publisher Benedikt Taschen. “Growing up [in Cologne], I was surrounded by photographers and met great artists working with my father, like Helmut Newton. It was a blessing to have this as a part of my daily life. It was inspiring to be surrounded by art in any form.”


Fotos aus dem New Yorker Taxi

June 22, 2021 - June 24, 2022

Journalist: Leonie Wedekind

"Das Leben schreibt ja bekanntermaßen die besten Geschichten. Für Joseph Rodriguez bietet es auch die besten Motive. Zehn Jahre fuhr der US-Amerikaner Taxi. Hinter dem Steuer dokumentierte er als "fahrender Flaneur" in den 70er und 80er Jahren den rauen Alltag der New Yorker. Nun hat der gefeierte Dokumentarfotograf jene Fotos zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht. In der Galerie Bene Taschen in Köln sind die Werke bis Ende Juli zu sehen."


THE DRIVER-TURNED-PHOTOGRAPHER WHO SHOT 80s NEW YORK CITY

June 21, 2021

Joseph Rodriguez captured the many different corners of the city from the window of his cab.

"To drive a cab back then, you either had to have a death wish or come to the job with a biography that inured you to the danger or graced you with such intuitive empathy/curiosity that to see and hear and sometimes engage with the cavalcade of humanity sliding in and out of your backseat trumped the nightly game of Russian roulette." 


The writer Richard Price penned these poignant words that open photographer Joseph Rodriguez's book and show,
Taxi: Journey Through My Windows 1977-1987, currently on display at Galerie Bene Taschen in Cologne, Germany.


ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES

June 19 - July 25, 2021

Künstlerhaus Dortmund presents a group exhibition with participating artists: Thaddé Comar, Constantin Grolig, Lois Hechenblaikner, Sabine Springer, Julia Steinigeweg and Miron Zownir.

"Our life is currently being questioned in almost every area. Traveling, flying – we may have to change our habits. But how do we redefine ourselves, how do we find a new identity? First it was changing locations and now even interpersonal contacts have mutated from essential to dangerous. We no longer experience ourselves as nomadic and interacting, but rather as solitary. We are separated from places of longing, also from people we long for. An imagined after is the time onto which we project our longings. Whereby the wish for the future is often enough for it to be the same as it was in the past. The exhibition tries to present these aspects of yesterday, which are supposed to fill and enrich our future, and to question their suitability. Forms of physical closeness, joint ventures and dissolute living, as well as political commitment for a better future: the new old proximity is being put to the test."


FT Weekend Life & Arts

June 12/ June 13, 2021

"Taxi" (1984) by Joseph Rodriguez — Cheyenne Darko

"Prior to picking up a camera for the first time at the age of 20, Joseph Rodriguez spent time in prison and was addicted to drugs. The native New Yorker would later say that taking up photography saved his life. Becoming a taxi driver in 1977, Rodriguez spent the next decade exploring New York from the front seat of his cab, capturing the mood of the city in one of its most troubled periods. From families en route to church to sex workers in the Meatpacking District, Rodriguez’s camera doesn’t discriminate. As the photographer says: 'There are a million stories here in New York. Everybody’s got a story.'"


Miron Zownir

June 8, 2021

The article of Artribune informs you about the complex œuvre of Miron Zownir as well as the current exhibition "Zeitwirdknapp/ Non c'è più tempo" at the Centro Internazionale di Fotografia Palermo curated by Gaetano la Rosa. As the first great retrospective in Italy, this show comprises over seventy middle- and large-sized works which were produced around the world between 1977 and 2019.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies.“ They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in „server log files“. These are:

Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process, and use personal data only insofar as it is necessary to establish, or modify legal relationships with us (master data). This is done based on Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. We collect, process and use your personal data when accessing our website (usage data) only to the extent required to enable you to access our service or to bill you for the same.

Collected customer data shall be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Data transmitted when entering into a contract with online shops, retailers, and mail order

We transmit personally identifiable data to third parties only to the extent required to fulfill the terms of your contract, for example, to companies entrusted to deliver goods to your location or banks entrusted to process your payments. Your data will not be transmitted for any other purpose unless you have given your express permission to do so. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties for advertising purposes without your express consent.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

4. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies“. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

5. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the „unsubscribe“ link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.

For details, see the MailChimp privacy policy at https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Completion of a data processing agreement

We have entered into a data processing agreement with MailChimp, in which we require MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to disclose said data to third parties. This agreement may be viewed at the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
