Edition no. 20
Fair market value: $100
The photo was taken by Emily Blumenfeld during a Sunk Shore tour. Sunk Shore is a collaborative project by Clarinda Mac Low and Carolyn Hall, speculative tours of the future of specific waterways. The collaborators create narratives based on a deep dive into climate change data and information about the shorelines they're touring, and then bring the participants along on a time traveling walk from the past to the future. In the photo, Hall is peering into the past off the north shore of Governors Island in NYC. The next Sunk Shore tour will take place along the Gowanus Canal as part of the Open Source Gallery's 2022 exhibition program.

Passing Freight is a visual celebration of the unique beauty and function of freight train cars in the United States. In 2018 there were 1,637,000 freight cars in operation across North America, each distinctive in their construction, markings and utility. Time and human contact add to each train car's individuality: all carrying a vast, and sometimes surprising array of goods and resources. This series of photographs captures the still active rail lines that carry freight to destinations across the country. Mallon's industrial landscape photographs isolate freight cars within this iconic transportation system, which has played a critical role in supply infrastructure across the continent for hundreds of years.
Like the electrical synapses firing in the human brain, unseen and invisible, but essential to our ability to function, 140,000 miles of train tracks traverse America. Countless loads of steel, grain, coal and everything in between travel supported by this ancient network of distribution. Mallon has been finding locations from New York to California, patiently waiting for the combination of light, subject and environment to capture unique images where they intersect. He has chosen the "decisive moment" to capture these speeding boxcars photographically. There is an intersection of mechanical and natural worlds, singular encounters where the trains activate the landscape, which for Mallon are fleeting and hard to predict. Patience leads to the essential moment when these elements come into position: the points in time where the colors and shapes of each railcar, all of the nuances of the light reflecting from the loads of steel, wood, and everything else are composed and captured.
Stephen Mallon is a photographer and filmmaker who specializes in the industrial-scale creations of mankind at unusual moments of their life cycles. Mallon's work blurs the line between documentary and fine art, revealing the industrial landscape to be
unnatural, desolate and functional yet simultaneously also human, surprising and inspiring. His work has been featured in publications and by broadcasters including The New York Times, National Geographic, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Mail, MSNBC, The Atlantic, GQ, CBS, the London Times and Vanity
In 2009, Mallon produced Brace for Impact: The Salvage of Flight 1549, a series of photographs recorded the salvaging of the passenger aircraft which captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed on the Hudson
River. In 2010, his solo exhibition Next Stop Atlantic documented the disposal of New York subway trains at sea to form artificial coral reefs. Over 60,000 people experienced the exhibition and was featured by Gothamist, Artnet, Yahoo, Fox News, and numerous other outlets.
Machines Of Interest, a curated selection of Mallon's work was on display at the National Museum of Industrial History for over nine months and is now at the Johnstown Area Heritage Association until spring of 2022. Mallon served as a board member of the New York chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers from 2002 until 2020 and served as president from 2006 to 2009. He is represented by Front Room Gallery in New York.
Cliff (from Animal Friends series)
Photography pigment ink print
Fair market value: $1200
Animal Friends (2006-2007) is a series of photographs Suzuki shot at urban zoos. Each
piece is a triptych: a child, an animal, and text. Children's attribution of internal states to
non-human others such as animals and nature involves imagining others' minds and
internal states. Suzuki wanted to indicate this moment of non-verbal communication between child and animal by producing a likewise non-verbal commemoration. Nonhuman-animals present emotional expression and cognitive processing in ways
both similar to humans. The photos alone portrayed a tranquil, silent ideal, which was not the whole story. The visual record erases, in a sense, the obvious presence of adults, parents, or caretakers in the mise en scène. During the intervals she spent photographing and videotaping at the zoo, I frequently overheard adults talking and maneuvering themselves and the children to a specific position or exhibit. According to The Child Study Association of America, "Adults misrepresent or misinterpret that beautiful of stillness of children when vivid impressions are being organized into happy memories or creative responses. They misinterpret this stillness, thinking that nothing has registered." The non-human creatures connect directly, often meeting the intense stare of both the children and her lens, but their communication remains non-verbal: unlike the children, they will never move into the realm of human language. Suzuki's straightforward stare, however, is not so straightforward - she uses the lens as a device to re-imagine her own childhood and invoke a remembered ability to understand wordlessly.
Miho Suzuki is originally from Japan, came to the US with a scholarship. Suzuki studied film and media arts and received her MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Her photographs, video, and installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe.

Miho Suzuki's artistic obsession with the camera started very young. She broke her aunt's SLR camera lens at age eight. At eleven Suzuki was so eager to photograph her dog and cats that she compiled photo books for them. Suzuki currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
Suzuki has collaborated with Open Source Gallery on multiple occasions, including for her solo exhibition, Our Children Today (2013).
Suzuki is participating in Selects-@-CREATE, an exhibition curated by Daniel Aycock and Kathleen Vance. This exhibit is presented by Open Source Gallery in collaboration with CREATE. Selects-@-CREATE opens on November 20, 2021 and is on view in Catskill, NY through January 16, 2022.

The photographic process has the unique ability to collect light. Hagen utilizes this with images exposed over an extended period of time: time determined by the space, by his experience in that space. He explores the momentous light of a place, the place in a special state of being. In these images, Hagen focuses on places personally important for him. The remembrance is here the guiding principal.
Stefan Hagen has shown his work in Solo and Group shows throughout the United States and in Germany. He is also the founder and director of the Montello Foundation a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility, and the need to protect it.
