On May 24, the Yancey Richardson Gallery in Chelsea opened an exhibit of new work by Lisa Kereszi. The exhibition, the fourth of Kereszi’s work at the Gallery, is made up of color prints of landscapes and interiors that visually and emotionally relate to the title “The Party’s Over”. Kereszi, who is a Lecturer and the Acting Director of Undergraduate Studies in Photography at Yale, has a quirky, whimsical vision, and an intriguing way of presenting light and space that adds an extra dimension to her photos. A particular favorite of mine is of a drawn window shade that Kereszi, when I commented on the photo, gave credit to her mother as helping with the set-up. Her mother was also at the opening and was busy with her camera documenting the event. I would love to see her photos.
Also at Yancey Richardson in the Project Gallery space was a selection of color photos by Rachel Perry Welty that were originally commissioned by Vogue Magazine and appeared in the December 2011 issue.
