"Paralux: Range of Light" - at HP Gallery at Calumet Photographic

Over the past two years, I've been meeting as a critique group with 7 other photographers to view and keep a dialogue up about our work.  About 9 months ago, we got the ball rolling for the group exhibition of our work titled, "Paralux: Range of Light".  The exhibition includes work by: Anthony Alvarez, Carey Kirkella, Laurie Sermos, Mat Szwajkos, Orrie King, Peter Riesett, Philippe Rohdewald, and Tod Seelie.

1937: "Fundamentals of Exhibition Design" - by Herbert Bayer

This is something really interesting that I came across today while digitizing various material here at The New York Public Library - (where I work as Head Photographer doing digital archiving and reproduction photography of fascinating items from the various collections). This "Fundamentals of Exhibition Design" was written in 1937 by Herbert Bayer (a graphic designer, typographer, photographer, painter, environmental designer, sculptor and exhibition designer). It brings up some thought provoking ideas about exhibition design, flow, perspective and field of vision. Some of the illustrations are great...particularly the last one.

This essay by Herbert Bayer is also mentioned in the essay by Christopher Phillips titled "The Judgment Seat of Photography" in the quarterly journal OCTOBER (Autumn, 1982). That entire article can be read HERE.
