Soho Photo Gallery Presents Aquarius
By Amadou Diallo

For Immediate Release

Exhibit dates: July 10 - August 4, 2007
15 White Street, New York, NY (212) 226-8751
Opening Reception: Tuesday, July 10, from 6-8 pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, July 14 at 2:00pm
Gallery hours: Thursday, 6-8 pm; Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 1-6 pm

New York, NY - May 2007. Soho Photo Gallery is pleased to present Aquarius, the gallery's second solo exhibit of works by photographer Amadou Diallo. This series of images is inspired by Chinese landscape paintings of the 10th–13th centuries; works in which an economy of brush strokes expresses nature’s infinite profundity. As Diallo writes, "When photographing these seascapes I use long exposure times to create a sense of motion and frame the compositions to eliminate visual clues, enabling natural elements to exist within a new context. Completing the reference to East Asian art, I print the images on a kozo (mulberry) paper from Japan that has a translucence and unique absorption of ink which convey a sense of subtle delicacy, contributing to a finished image that references traditions of photography, painting, and printmaking. I invite the viewer to reconcile both abstract and representational forms into a personal narrative that transcends time and place."

Diallo will also be presenting an Artist Talk in which he discusses the aesthetic and technical aspects of his photography as well as an overview of some of the digital imaging processes used to produce his work. Admission is free and seating is available on a first-come first-serve basis.

The Gallery is in New York City's historic TriBeCa district, 3 blocks south
of Canal Street, between West Broadway and Sixth Avenue. Subways:
Number 1 to Franklin Street; A, C, E, N or R to Canal Street.

DIGITAL PRINTMAKERS GUILD TO HOST GALLERY EXHIBIT OF FINE ART PRINTS
New York, NY-October 2003. The Digital Printmakers Guild (DPG) is presenting an exhibit of fine art photographic prints at Seven Ops Gallery Space. The exhibit is sponsored by ErgoSoft US and Moab Paper Company.

A variety of images and printing techniques will be on display with prints from the archives of Cirrus Digital Imaging (Portland, OR), editions@Diallo Photography (New York City), and Infinite Editions (Denver, CO).

"Digital printmaking has seen rapid advances in technology. We've reached the point where pixels, resolution, and dithering are of secondary interest to the fine art viewer," states Amadou Diallo of editions@Diallo Photography. "Output quality is such that prints can be judged solely on their artistic merit. And we're pleased to showcase these images in a gallery setting."

Seven Ops Gallery Space is located at 347 W. 36th St., between Eighth and Ninth
Avenues, on the 7th floor. For more information call (347) 231-6652.

Soho Photo Gallery Presents Still Life: Botanica
By Amadou Diallo

For Immediate Release

Exhibit dates: April 2 - May 4, 2002

Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 2, from 6-8 pm
Gallery hours: Thursday, 6-8 pm; Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 1-6 pm

New York, NY - February 2002. Originally from Baltimore, MD, and a jazz saxophonist and composer, Amadou Diallo is a young photographer with an exciting vision.

Still Life: Botanica, an exhibit of twelve large floral images, is part of an ongoing work exploring the interaction of light, texture and contrast in creating organic portraits. Floral studies, no stranger to the photographic medium, have a long history of stylized romanticism. "My challenge is to present neither pictorialist jewels nor clinical autopsies, but to go beyond physical reality and create a portrait," comments Diallo. "I hope to present the viewer with the uniqueness and individuality of subjects too frequently interpreted as metaphors of idealized beauty."

The Gallery is in New York City's historic TriBeCa district, 3 blocks south
of Canal Street, between West Broadway and Sixth Avenue. Subways:
Number 1 to Franklin Street; A, C, E, N or R to Canal Street.
