LUISBRENSHIREZ1 Boston based photographer, professor and mixed media artist, Luis Brens, captures the vibrant street life of Cuba in this intimate essay on the rhythms of the street. Avenues lined in weathered architecture provide a backdrop for the pictures as we discover classic cars, youth culture and flamboyant personalities engaging us at every turn.

He works as both a professor and commercial photographer and his work has been featured in Vogue, Boston Common and Boston Magazine.

“I create camera-less images to investigate my relationship to the physical space I exist in and how the chemical process of photography is still important in advancing our theoretical understanding of the photographic medium.” – Amy Theiss Giese

Upcoming Exhibition by NESOP Documentary Instructor, Michael Hintlian

Upcoming Exhibition by Documentary Instructor, Michael Hintlian

NESOP Documentary Instructor Michael Hintlian‘s Exhibition “No Transfer: Photographs from Public Transportation” opens August 31st at The May Gallery at Webster University, St. Louis, MO.

“All the photographs in the No Transfer gallery were made from the window of a bus or train. Starting out of a frustration with working on the street in Boston – a very difficult place for a street photographer – it grew into an absorbing project. Shooting from a bus offered new challenges, how quickly I needed to work, the right seat, dirty and tinted windows. Almost immediately something different began to happen, something I had been trying to honor for a long time, the ability to respond to the first impulse before my mind starts to run the photograph. On a bus or train there are no second chances or time to consider anything more than perception and react with a camera. Henry Wessel said it well: “…(being) outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts.” On a bus or train there are no second chances or time to consider anything more than perception and react with a camera. And I am still learning.”

– Michael Hintlian

Opening Thursday,June 16th, 2011 from 6-8pm
Show Runs June 16th – August 14th
at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT

“Last year I was selected as one of 6 emerging artists to plan and mount an exhibition in the galleries of Real Art Ways, an alternative arts organization in Hartford.  The experience has been amazing so far, and I am incredibly excited about the new work that I am creating for the show!  I will have an entire gallery to install my large scale silver gelatin murals and the accompanying sound piece, and the show will be up most of the summer.  The opening is a Thursday evening from 6-8pm and the other five artists selected will be debuting their work as well in the other galleries of Real Art Ways in conjunction with their Creative Cocktail Hour.  It should be an amazing time, and I’d love to see you if you can make the trek!”
