Photography at the 2010 Armory, Part 4 of 6
Parts 1, 2 and 3 of this multi-part Armory review post can be found here (part 1), here (part 2) and here (part 3). This post refers to the first section of the shorter hall to the left of the entrance area/cash registers.
Herald Street (here): Josh Brand (2)
Regina Gallery (here): Sergey Bratkov (1)
In Situ/Fabienne Leclerc (here): Noritoshi Hirakawa (1)
Sean Kelly Gallery (here): James Casebere (2), Frank Thiel (1), Marina Abramovic (1), Robert Mapplethorpe (3), Iran do Espirito Santo (4). The Thiel was an image from his series of large scale curtains (this one was patterned). The Mapplethorpes were male nudes. One of the Casebere images was perhaps the largest and most complicated model I have seen in his work, with dozens of houses on a sunlit hillside (I didn't take a picture, but you can find it here, the first image in the slideshow)
Galerie GP & N Vallois (here): Alain Bublex (1)
Galerie Georg Kargl (here): David Maljkovic (9)

Broadway 1602 (here): Babette Mangolte (9, plus a glass case of images on cards), Amy Granat (1 photogram). I very much liked the small black and white 1970s vintage composites by Mangolte on view in this booth. Most were top/bottom pairings and reversals of patterned city buildings, silhouettes of architecture and street imagery. The prints were priced at $6000 each.
Galleria Franco Soffiantino (here): Ryan Andrew Johnson (8 groups of Polaroids)
Claudia Groeflin Galerie (here): Daniel Gordon (7, same series as recent MoMA New Photography exhibit)
