Laura Morton will be showing her project The Social Stage at The Half King Gallery on November 19, at 7:30pm. The show will be on view until January 12, 2014. 

Opening night's slideshow will feature Laura and Jim Estrin, discussing the stories and context of Laura's images. The Social Stage is about the people at San Francisco society galas. This is a set whose members attend extravagant, fanciful parties to celebrate donating crucial sums to local charities and organizations. Bright, immediate, and timeless, Morton’s images give the fabulous moment and the lonesome, isolated moment equal value.

Published to accompany a highly anticipated traveling exhibition, Home Truths examines contemporary interpretations of one of the most enduring subjects in the history of picture-making: the image of the mother.

Place: ICP Store, 1133 Avenue of the Americas


Art Desks features photographs of the desks and working spaces of artists, curators, art dealers, critics and tastemakers throughout the East Coast. This series began in 2011 in Washington, D.C. and has since expanded to other art markets. This series explores the idea of desk as portrait combined with the social experiment of navigating the art world.

These photographs will be published by Daylight Books in the fall of next year. The 8-inch-by-10-inch hardbound book will feature 96 photographs of art desks. This will be Robinson's first book published with an independent publisher.
