Photography Show Opens at Carrie Haddad in Hudson
Lovers of the art of photography, in all its infinite variety, gathered on Saturday evening at Carrie Haddad Photographs for the opening of a show that featured photography of wildly divergent bents. Andrian Fernandez, the Cuban photographer who Rural Intelligence’s Wandering Eye Carey Maloney and his partner Hermes Mallea discovered on their frequent recent trips to Havana, does technically exacting still lifes that manage to be at once strictly controlled and wildly flamboyant. David Seiler does haunting sepia-toned blow-ups, often portraits, that he then alters in a painterly manner by varying the surface texture and tone to convey an antique affect. Margaret Saliske decoupages her intricately shaped sculptures with (mostly) black-and-white photographs. And Nancy Goldring projects images onto painted screen, then photographs the results.
