Hannah Frieser writes: Photography buildings can take many forms. Architectural photographers, for example, take excruciating care to right every angle and present every building in its bare architectural facts. In Tema Stauffer's images, however, buildings are never just buildings. Instead they speak of years past and lives lived in them. The resulting images covey a strong sense of community. Stauffer further emphasizes community with portraits she interlaces into the series. Many images are bathed in the rich light so familiar to Upstate New Yorkers, adding gravitas to the buildings' place in people's lives. As the backbone of neighborhoods, these buildings are here now, but is is clear as the light fades and the facades crumble that things are changing and that neither building nor people might not be here much longer.
I will be traveling to Fort Collins for the reception on Friday, October 20th from 5:30 - 7:30pm and portfolio reviews with Hannah Frieser and Hamidah Glasgow the following day.

|Maison du Père|
Where Do You Sleep? is a cause-related photographic art project supported and sponsored by the City of Montréal. Ten photographers were selected to contribute varying works exploring their visions of homelessness.
During the summer of 2015, Tema Stauffer photographed interiors of homeless shelters throughout the city of Montréal. The question posed by the project led her to examine the accommodations provided by local organizations dedicated to protecting and supporting the homeless and other individuals in crisis or transition. Variations in funding and capacity influence the kinds of environments these organizations are capable of providing as an alternative to the streets. These range from private bedrooms to large, shared rooms with many beds, as well as the pews of a downtown church where the homeless rest during weekdays.
The photographs selected for the first exhibition on display in the Hall of Honor at Montréal's City Hall from October 31st to November 12th, 2015 portray rooms at Mission Old Brewery, Projets Autochtones du Québec (PAQ), and Maison de Pére. Thank you to the organizations and their directors and staff who generously opened their doors to this project, also including Nazareth House, Anne's House, Chez Doris, Auberge Madeleine, Le Chainon, Native Women's Shelter, Welcome Hall Mission, and the Open Door Church.

An exhibition of 12 prints from my Paterson portrait series is opening on June 6th at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York's new gallery space in Chinatown.

The portrait of Jhozali on Straight Street in May 2014 is the last photograph I shot in Paterson. Thank you to the community of Paterson for making this work possible and to the CCNY and Jerome Foundation for supporting the production of these exhibitions prints.
For those in New York, I hope you will be able to join me for the opening on Saturday, June 6th from 6-8pm at 126 Baxter Street. The show will be on view for three weeks until Saturday, June 27th. More information can be found on the Baxter Street at the CCNY's website: Paterson Exhibition.

Thank you to Montreal-based photographer and writer Alexis Desgagnés for a thoughtful and generous presentation today to Concordia students in Photographic Visions: Theory and Practice II. Alexis discussed his past experiences as artistic director of VU Photo in Quebec City and his current work as assistant editor of the stunning Canadian photography magazine Ciel Variable, as well as topics such as producing photo books, writing about photography, developing artist communities, and taking intiative to find creative and authentic ways to survive in the arts. Best quote: "You are artists. You're not bureaucrats. You're not in the army."
