Rita Bernstein: Ghost of Summer
Rita Bernstein: Ghost of Summer at Gallery 339. "...The scale and intimacy of these remarkable photographs belie the complexity and daring of Bernstein’s work. Her images walk a delicate tightrope; they evoke a sense of memory and of keenly felt private thoughts, yet their poignancy is controlled and perfectly modulated by their austerity and ambiguity. They are tender and mysterious, yet never stray into the sentimental. Bernstein further explores this dichotomy of heart versus mind through her print-making process, which demands a high level of skill yet remains uncertain and serendipitous. The process involves liquid silver emulsion applied to delicate Japanese Gampi paper." More... Works by Rita Bernstein at her personal site.
