Thursday January 28 photo openings

Another exciting round-up of openings tonight: stein-ulrich

Caption Gallery, Instruments of Empire: Amy Stein & Brian Ulrich, Brooklyn, NY, Jan 28 - Mar 25

"Caption Gallery is pleased to announce a dual exhibition of photographs by Amy Stein and Brian Ulrich. Their powerful, dystopic visions expose the transformation of human beings into consumers, with little power or agency."


Cynthia MacAdams "Feminist Portraits, 1974-1977"and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders "Supermodels of the 70s and 80s" at Steven Kasher Gallery, 23 street: 521 W 23 street, 6-8pm

Cynthia MacAdams: "Steven Kasher Gallery is pleased to present a distinguished body of work by photographer Cynthia MacAdams. The exhibition will feature over 70 vintage black and white photographic prints of female artists, activists and intellectuals from the 1970s, as well as everyday women and nudes."

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: "The exhibition will feature ten large-format portraits of legendary Supermodels from the 1970s and 1980s taken in 2009 while Greenfield-Sanders was working on a project for Vanity Fair magazine. Timothy writes: I have always been interested in how we deal with aging in our hopelessly youth oriented society. These beautiful and amazing women, now in their fifties, were once the reigning queens of American beauty  and the ultimate icons of world-wide marketing."
