Olivier Pojzman will be teaming up with Los Angeles Wine Tasting for a very special silent auction at The Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. Olivier’s oversized canvases of Route 66 compliment the Avalon’s mid-century design perfectly. With the ambiance of the Avalon and a great sparkling wine by Gruet Winery — it’s sure to be a fabulous night.
Escape with us on the main street of America, one of the most famous routes ending at the Pacific. During this voyage des sens, let’s halt not too far from New Mexico’s white sands and excite our tastebuds in Albuquerque with the estate-grown méthode champenoise sparkling wine from Gruet Winery located on some of the highest vineyards in the US. Venturing through the different states we will explore the refreshing and inspirational image artwork of Olivier Pojzman available for sale during an exclusive silent auction. Born in France, with a unique résumé including works for Yves Saint Laurent and Prince Albert de Monaco, Olivier has traveled to more than 30 countries and now resides in Venice Beach, CA.
I usually write about new work by our artists and will even occasionally share something from someone else (not on our roster) that I admire, but it’s rare (in fact, it’s never happened) that I write about one of my artist’s profile images. This image of photographer, Michael Kelley is a great example of an old process (wet-plate collodion) standing up to the test of time and showing a beauty that needs to be preserved (sorry Michael, I’m not talking about you, just the process).
The photographer responsible for this shot was the extraordinary Michael Shindler from San Francisco. It was shot on a 5×7 Sinar camera. If you’re not familiar with the wet-plate collodion process, it’s a process that dates to the 1850′s and involves coating a piece of metal with a series of light-sensitive chemicals (in this case, silver bromide) which is then exposed to light. The plate is then dipped in a developer and you’re left with a single direct positive. The results are nothing short of stunning. Needless to say, this isn’t Instagram.
Shindler has also teamed up with a friend to create Photobooth in San Francisco — a walk-in Tintype and Polaroid portrait studio, gallery space and retail store in San Francisco’s Mission district. Let’s hope that this will inspire more people to embrace what is a (nearly) lost art form.
