Haley Morris-Cafiero, News Café (2015), archival inkjet print, 16 x 16 inches.

For Wait Watchers, Morris-Cafiero sets up a camera in a public area where she performs mundane tasks. She then photographs the scene including herself, passers-by, and their reactions. The resulting images capture the gazes of passers-by in a Cartier-Bresson-like “decisive moment.”

The artist describes her project as a social experiment on how we judge and look at one anther. With the camera the artist “reverses the gaze back onto the stranger and places the viewer in the position of a passive witness.”

Dan Lobdell, Pittsburgh, PA (PITT02) (2013), archival pigment print, 22 x 33 inches.

The series City Landscapes and Typologies by Dan Lobdell features photographs of 19th and 20th century building facades in Rust Belt cities such as Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Detroit, and Cleveland. Lobdell documents a variety of architectural styles in urban environments that have either successfully adapted to or declined due to de-industrialization and changing times.

Dan Lobdell, Rochester, NY (ROC06) (2013), archival pigment print, 22 x 33 inches.

His use of perspective captures dramatic skies and the surrounding setting, while the use of black and white photography emphasizes each building’s architectural form and features. For Lobdell, City Landscapes and Typologies is an “investigation into how the buildings, in their stateliness and various degrees of disrepair, engage with their environment and the new urban reality.”

David Pace, Untitled (Sur La Route 9486) (2013), archival pigment print, 14 x 20 inches.

The photographs in the series Sur La Route (“on the road”) by David Pace were taken in the rural village of Bereba in the West African country of Burkina Faso, and are elegant portraits of Pace’s neighbors as they return home on an earthen path at the day’s end.

Sur La Route 0787 (2011)

David Pace, Untitled (Sur La Route 8334) (2013), archival pigment print, 20 x 14 inches.

He uses a fill-flash to illuminate his subjects and to “take advantage of beautiful skies that appear for just a few moments before nightfall.” As a counter to media portrayals of Africa as either devastated or exotic, Pace emphasizes both the beauty of the landscape and the “simply beauty of everyday life” in Bereba.
