The Modern In Denver Holiday Gift Guide continues, and in this edition, we support local artists! In fact, in every issue of the magazine, we devote an entire section to the work and creativity of one local photographer. When shopping this holiday season, consider supporting the creators in our own backyard. Check out some of the recent essays and prints they’re offering.
In the fall issue of Modern In Denver, we featured “The American Landscape: Abstracted,” a photo essay by photographer Danae Falliers. Give the gift of art, and order one of Falliers’ prints this season.
Denver-based Ron Pollard was the photographer behind the Cinderella City photo shoot just before its demolition. We featured his photo essay and the story behind Cinderella City in the summer issue of Modern In Denver, and he’s offering prints. Simply contact Ron to place an order.
COLORADO PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS CENTER / PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN BONATH
This shot of Andy Warhol was taken by photographer John Bonath in 1981 at a Fort Collins motel when he was in town visiting CSU. This image was published for the first time in the fall issue of Modern In Denver magazine, and you can get a print of it by purchasing a Colorado Photographic Arts Center membership at the benefactor level. You can also read more about the story behind the photograph or purchase other images by Bonath on his site.
In the spring issue, photographer Greg Friedler’s project, “Residue,” featured tiny slivers of graffiti tags—what he photographed to look like fine art was residue left behind from the creation of these graffiti tags and authorities’ graffiti cover ups. You may recognize the artist’s name. He is the creator behind the Naked series of books, including Naked New York, Naked Los Angeles, Naked London, and more. Visit his website to purchase the books, but beware, they are NSFW. You’ve been warned!
Last year, we featured an essay titled “Painting with Urban Light” by Jennifer Koskinen—a long exposure project inspired by “a fascination with the idea that creating a photograph is analogous to painting an exposure with the LIGHT of a particular moment in space and time.” Koskinen runs Merritt Design Photo in Denver; to purchase images, contact her.
