UPDATED: Photographer's Showcase Artist Update

Devin and The Fireflies, 2010 -- Cig Harvey
An exhibition of Cig Harvey's work is opening at the Robin Rice Gallery in New York opening on November 14th with an artist talk and book signing from 5-6 pm followed by an opening reception from 6-8:30pm.

Harvey's photographic series, You Look At Me Like an Emergency, was also recently published as a book by Schilt Publishing. In our recent interview, Harvey stated: "My work reflects, either indirectly or directly, what I am concerned with at that time but it’s always the human spirit that fascinates me. I initially used myself as the subject when I was creating work about the past, but the pictures were never really specifically about me, rather the universal emotion I was trying to explore. A shift happened in 2005 when I started to make work about the present. I no longer needed to be in the images, I just needed to have my camera in hand and look at the world around me."

Grape Nuts Dune #7, 2005 -- Ernie Button
Ernie Button and his Cerealism portfolio has recently been featured on Wired.com. "Most people are too groggy in the morning to pay attention to their cereal, but Ernie Button is not like most people. He specializes in noticing the small details others miss, and over the past decade has built an impressive archive of cereal photos that explore the texture, color and marketing wrapped up in these niblets of nourishment." -- Jakob Schiller from Wired.com.

UPDATE: Button's work has also just been featured on Gawker.com. See the post here.

Button's will also be on exhibit at the Camerawork Gallery in Portland, Oregon from Jan 26th to February 22nd. Button has two portfolios on the Photographer's Showcase. See the photo-eye Blog post on Button's Vanishing Spirits portfolio here.

Invincible -- Lydia Panas
Lydia Panas' work has been included in the 2012 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The show is on exhibit now through February 17th.

Panas is known for her arresting portraits of groups of people. In our interview with her earlier this year, Panas discussed the origin of her project: "The result from that shoot was so vivid, that I began inviting other people to come to my property, again with no specific idea in mind. The project grew organically. As in all my work, the project drove me, rather than the other way around. Making photographs keeps me interested because I always learn about myself through my work and through the process. When I allow my unconscious thoughts to drive the process, the images become more interesting and revealing." Read the entire interview here.
