The title "Journeys" refers to Marketa Jirouskova's main source of inspiration: a journey itself as a long, arduous travel in search of nature's highlights, in the footsteps of earlier explorers or following her own paths. The exhibit presents images of exotic birds and iguanas on isolated islands in the Pacific Ocean, penguins and polar bears with iceberg backdrops in Antarctica and the North Pole, and the highest mountains on Earth in the Himalaya. Jirouskova creates a wonderland composed of pristine uninhabited undisturbed places, difficult to leave for its beauty and harmony, where human traces are still non-existent or minimal. Jirouskova traveled to those remote destinations to create us evocative, almost painting-like, intimate portraits of our natural world. She hopes to inspire her public with respect, appreciation and admiration of world's nature worth preserving.

Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980

December 14, 2018 - January 20, 2019
Saturdays, 1 to 4pm and Sundays, 1 to 7pm
Reception, Gallery Talk, Book Signing: Friday, December 14, 6 to 8pm

The Photoworks Gallery is proud to host the first solo exhibition of work from Frank Van Riper's bestselling latest book, Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980. The exhibition opens Friday evening December 14, 6 to 8pm and also will be accompanied by a lecture and book-signing. The show runs through January 20, 2019.

Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980 is a meditation on time and place: before the internet and 24/7 news; when one could visit the Eiffel Tower without seeing police and automatic weapons, when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents, when the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood, and when the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands. Van Riper's striking black and white photographs, coupled with his eloquent text, capture the 20th-century romance and grit of New York more than half a century ago, and Paris, some forty years ago. It was a time when the pace of life was slower and somehow less threatening, people talked to each other instead of texting on their iPhones, and you literally had to stop and smell the coffee or freshly baked bagel.

Veteran photographer, author and journalist Frank Van Riper has been a Photoworks faculty for more than a dozen years. His award-winning career in journalism began in 1967 at the New York Daily News where for 20 years he served as a White House correspondent, national political correspondent and Washington Bureau news editor. After that, he was the photography columnist of the Washington Post for 19 years.
