Library of Congress recently acquired twenty-three photographs by Helen M. Stummer

The Library of Congress recently acquired twenty-three photographs by
Helen M. Stummer as a gift/purchase for their permanent collection. The photographs document poor families living in Newark, New Jersey, Stummer's hometown. There are also selections from East 6th Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan where Stummer began her social documentary career in 1977.

Stummer's long-term commitment to the struggles and dignity of
the poor is evident in her photographs. Whether photographing the spontaneity of children playing on inner-city streets and litter-strewn vacant lots, or the reality of the elderly struggling to survive on a fixed income, Stummer's photographs portray her subjects with respect and compassion.

The acquisition of Helen Stummer's photographs strengthen the
Library's outstanding collection of documentary photography, which includes Lewis Hine's extensive photographic documentation for the National Child Labor Committee, the archives of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, and Ansel Adams's photographs of a Japanese relocation camp at Manzanar, California.

Christine Burgoyne, recent review Masks and Alterations

Computers - miracles and menaces!

Masks and Alterations, an exploration of female identity by photographer Christine Burgoyne, is now on display at the Commencement Art Gallery. A powerful, exacting exhibition of black-and-white prints, Burgoyne's work immediately elicits emotions of intrigue, captivation and overall questioning of the female form.

"Alterations are what we choose to do to our bodies some by choice…some not," said Burgoyne. "Alterations then become the mask that we wear… for protection or possibly a vehicle of transformation or for healing."

Burgoyne's choice of size, in regards to the display of her work, is of utter importance. Her life-size and larger prints grab the viewer's eye from across the gallery - demanding attention and recognition. In "I am silence" (perfectly placed for single viewing), her model is covered in a cracking mud mask - leaving only her dark eyes to penetrate. It is a face only covered in earth, but this mask, like many, hides something unknown through its layers.

"Masks {are} often transparent tot he viewer but very real to the wearer," said Burgoyne.

With "Six 16", Burgoyne incorporates the use of sewing patterns paper to further illustrate her message of masks as concealers of the body - which are not necessarily worn by the women's request. Confronting the issue of suffocation of female size in our culture, Burgoyne uses the paper to wrap and cover her model like a clear plastic body bag. Tight and constricting, the woman is confined - the focal point directed on the face with eyes closed. The detail is near overwhelming, highlighting the individual eyelashes and eyebrow hairs.

Burgoyne's work is one of the most striking and contemporary-minded black-and-white exhibitions Commencement has shown in recent memory. Her continuity and message are precise and uncompromising with a technical prowess that recognizes and utilizes the power of art construction and display.
