2016 marks the 5th year of the gallery's FRESH Annual Summer Show, curated from an open call for submissions from emerging or thus far unrecognized photographers. 

The Klompching Gallery provides an excellent platform upon which to showcase up to five carefully selected artists. The FRESH exhibition is curated upon the premise of representing a body of work by each artist—rather than a single image—thus providing collectors, critics, curators and gallery visitors with a better insight into the vision of the photographer's work. Exposure is extended with a printed feature in BLINK magazine and long-form interviews on At Length Mag.

This year, to celebrate and mark the 5th year of FRESH, we are delighted to announce a few developments, that will expand the annual summer show in a manner that is consistent with the vision of the exhibition itself, the gallery's overall objectives and ultimately to enhance the opportunities for the exhibiting photographers. We are pleased to announce the following: 

  • An exhibition catalogue, in printed and digital form, that will feature the exhibiting photographers and ten finalists. 
  • Artists selected for the exhibition, will be offered the opportunity to have their photographs presented for sale, to a global market, via the gallery's ARTSY profile.  
  • The gallery will offer one artist from the exhibition, the opportunity to have their body of work represented by the gallery for a duration of one year.
  • Full integration of the Fresh Annual Summer Show onto the gallery's website, including the archive from past years.

William Miller | Ruined Polaroids

We are pleased to announce the representation of William Miller, and to make available to the market the Ruined Polaroids series from 2011.

Throughout 2011, William Miller experimented with a broken Polaroid SX-70 camera, producing polaroid images, that were essentially partially destroyed by the camera's malfunctioning. With a little ingenuity and finesse in controlling only some aspects of the process, Miller has produced a series of photographs that are colorful abstractions, with the majority of representation of the real world removed. The magic of chance performs a key role here, with each polaroid effected by the idiosyncrasies of the camera and film. In some respects, one might say that the photographs function as portraits of the process of the polaroid

"This project, Ruined Polaroids, is an unintended exploration into the three-dimensional physical character of an antiquated photographic medium that touches on subjects from the artistic value of chance, to questions of what constitutes a photograph. I say unintended because what I'm focusing on here is a technological anomaly. The failure of a process."—William Miller

The polaroids are reproduced as archival pigment prints. The scale is increased, accentuating the depth of color and visibility of the dispersion of ink in the original polaroid material.

The Ruined Polaroids series can be viewed HERE

Please contact the gallery for pricing and availability.
