2003, archival pigment print, AP, signed recto. Image size: 10.5"x14", sheet size: 17.5"x21.5" ($2,000–$3,200)
Renate Aller’s photographs explore the relationship of desire and reality. In You’veREDbetween the lines, the artist plays with the nature of sensuality, and requires the viewer consider multiple readings of the same image. Initially part of an installation in collaboration with curator Vittoria Ciolini, Dryphoto Arte Contemporanea, and the city of Prato, Italy, this body of work also confronts the general perception of the color red, in a time of “high alert”. It continues to inform the artist’s practice as she keeps marking the distance between our need to draw meaning from a frozen instant and the eternity within which that instant is inscribed. Aller’s work is in the collections of corporate institutions, private collectors and museums, including Lannan Foundation, Santa Fe, N.M., National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Yale University Art Gallery, CT, George Eastman House, Rochester, NY, New Britain Museum of American Art, CT, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany, Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, WI and Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, NY.

George N. Barnard, a Northern photographer, was born in 1819, in Coventry, CT. During his childhood, he lived throughout the country, including the South. Barnard became a photographer and opened his first studio in Oswego, in 1847. He also worked in Cuba before moving to New York where he was employed by Matthew Brady. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Barnard was sent by Brady to photograph various locations in Virginia, including Harper's Ferry, Bull Run, and Yorktown, as well as in and around, Washington, DC. Unhappy with Brady's policy not to give individual photographers credit for their work, Barnard, like Alexander Gardner and Timothy O'Sullivan, left Brady's employment in 1863. In 1864 Barnard became a photographer for the Military Department of the Mississippi under General William Sherman. He accompanied Sherman in his Atlanta Campaign. This resulted in the publication of his book of 61 photographs, Photographic Views with Sherman's Campaigns (1866). After the war Barnard moved to Chicago but his studio was destroyed by fire in 1871. He also had a studio in Charleston that was damaged by an earthquake. In 1884 he began work with the Rochester Photographic Association. Barnard died at the home of his daughter, in Onondaga, on February 4, 1902.
