Fruitful Wound" Photos by Dennis Santella
The Casa Frela
Gallery presents "The Fruitful Wound," photographs of Harlem's
gardens and open spaces by MCCC adjunct faculyt member Dennis Santella.
On exhibit since July 18, the show runs through Aug. 22, 2009. The gallery
is located at 47 W. 119th Street, NY, NY.
For a full
year, Santella has been searching out and photographing gardens and green
places across Harlem using a special panoramic camera manufactured by
Siciliano Camera Works of Brooklyn. His large richly detailed gelatin
silver prints draw on the improvised beauty of Harlem's open spaces --
from cultivated areas such as community gardens, to empty lots, and neglected
border areas where plants struggle to survive. More here.
