In the latest issue of Art In America there is an article about Allen Frame and his show at the Gitterman Gallery in NYC. As a photographer and film maker Mr. Frame has contibuted many solo exhibitions around the world as well as gained recognition for his work in AIDS awareness. His newest exhibit features photographs taken between 2006 and 2008 during his ‘down time’ while working. Each photo is featured on a 22 by 27.5 inch frame. The photos in this show are taken in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. His previous photography exhibitions featured NYC, Russia, The South, Europe and Sweden, Europe I and Mexico/Brazil.
His latest film in 2008 titled:
“Going Home is Allen Frame's poignant, and sometimes funny, encounter with his family during his father's death at home in Mississippi. His mother and brother are central characters, larger than life in their day-to day experience of an unfolding drama.”
Part of art is exposing oneself and to make a film like this is to faithfully live this mantra. Futhermore, this latest exhibit is raw spontaneous photos taken of lovers and friends as well as aquaintences.
Born in the Mississippi Delta and a New Yorker for the past 25 years Mr. Frame teaches photography at the School of Visual Arts, Pratt Institute, and the International Center of Photography.
