PaJaMa exhibition reviewed in THE NEW YORK TIMES by Roberta Smith.
The history of American art in New York in the 1930s and ’40s entails much more than the rise of Abstract Expressionism. One fascinating group of outliers was PaJaMa — the Magic Realist painters Paul Cadmus, Jared French and Margaret Hoening French, his wife — who fashioned their moniker from their first names.

PaJaMa exhibit reviewed in THE NEW YORKER by Vince Aletti.
In the late nineteen-forties, the American artists Paul Cadmus, Jared French, and Margaret French made a portmanteau of their first names and collaborated on a series of photographs that owe much to Jared’s mannered, oneiric realist paintings.

WILLIAM LARSON exhibition reviewed on DAILY SERVING by Amelia Rina.
Each unique, grayscale print combines graphic marks and photo collage to produce a visual stutter of image, text, and line; like a cross-section of a hurricane, Larson’s work highlights possible instants in the continuum of images electronically whirling around us everyday.

WILLIAM LARSON exhibition reviewed in COLLECTOR DAILY by Richard B. Woodward.
In art, as in life, timing can be everything. William Larson’s collages, done with the electronic aid of teleprinters, were out of step with the photographic majority when he made them between 1969-75. Now, they arrive for exhibition in New York as many younger artists involved with photography are bored by realism and once again in the throes of an obsession with process and non-traditional image making.

ELIOT ELISOFON profiled on LIFE website by Krystal Grow.
As sensitive to light, texture and composition as he was to urban decay and social injustice, Elisofon’s early work was a combination of modern art and photojournalism, a blend that evolved over his lengthy career and positioned him as a versatile shooter.

ELIOT ELISOFON exhibition reviewed in THE NEW YORKER by Vince Aletti.
But the show’s over-all focus is broader, including New York streetscapes from the thirties, as evocative as anything by Berenice Abbott, and charming images of children at play that would pair nicely with those by Helen Levitt.

ELIOT ELISOFON exhibition reviewed in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL by William Meyers.
There is a reason Life magazine dominated the market for more than 40 years: It had great picture stories. Eliot Elisofon (1911-1973) was a Life photojournalist for almost 30 years, covering such diverse stories as Gen. George S. Patton’s campaign in North Africa and Ella Fitzgerald’s birthday.
