  • “Upcoming Museum of New Art (MONA) Contemporary Art Auction”

On August 24th the The Museum of New Art (MONA) in Rochester, MI will hold a contemporary art auction to help support the museum’s recently completed state of the art museum space-its most ambitious venture ever, from which to launch its programming throughout the region, having its footprint in Macomb and Oakland counties.

My Gelatin Silver print Ghost Girl Cinema, 2008 (16x20″ on double weight matte fiber paper) will be a part of the auction along with works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, sculpture by The Gao Brothers (based in Beijing) and numerous other notable artists.

Lahary Pittman, Ghost Girl Cinema, 2008

Ghost Girl Cinema is part of a triptych I produced of what was said to be one of the oldest murals in Manhattan (circa 1945), and which was done on the side of a building reputed to have been among the oldest stag movie houses in Manhattan – (back in that time-frame). Hence the ray-beam like circular images that appear to be painted representations of movie projectors-and which when studied close-up reveal partially disrobed figures. {The Ghost Girl herself can be identified at the left-middle portion of the mural passing through a gateway-like frame}.

  • “Paul McCartney” Beatles 1964 New York Concert

Sold @ Auction

Among the works in own collection, that I did not create myself, is an 8×10″ photograph of the Beatle’s Paul McCartney from their first concert visit to New York city in 1964. This original photograph was produced by the London office of the United Press International (UPI) which I purchased several years ago and sold rather recently to a collector in Illinois at private auction.

  • “Hackney Carriages”
    London’s Liverpool Station

Sold @ Auction

 Lahary Pittman, Hackney Carriages, 2010 London

Lahary Pittman, Hackney Carriages, 2010 London

This photograph is an original work of art that I produced in Britain and hand pulled with bold, graphic black that is an 8×10″ Silver Gelatin print (including 1/4″ border on double weight matte fiber paper).  It’s signed, titled, and dated on verso in black, archival, lightfast ink-and was sold at private auction to a collector on Long Island.

In London a hackney or hackney carriage (also called a black cab, hack or London taxi) is a carriage or automobile for hire. This bold B&W photograph was taken at the Liverpool St. “London Underground” station merely one block from the film locations for both “Match Point” by Woody Allen and “Basic Instinct 2”.

In the United Kingdom, the name hackney carriage refers to a taxicab licensed by the Public Carriage Office in Greater London. In the United States, the police department of the city of Boston has a Hackney Carriage Unit, analogous to taxicab regulators in other cities, that issues Hackney Carriage medallions to its operators. Thus the origin of the New York colloquial term “hack” (taxi or taxi-driver), “hackstand” (taxi stand), and “hack license” (taxi license) are derived from “hackney carriage”. The name ‘hackney’ was once thought to be an anglicized derivative of French haquenée—a horse of medium size recommended for lady riders; however, current opinion is that it is derived from the village name Hackney (now part of London).

The first documented ‘hackney coach’—the forerunner of the more generic ‘hackney carriage’—operated in London in 1621. Astoundingly, “electric hackney carriages” appeared even before the introduction of the internal combustion engine to vehicles for hire in 1901..pre-dating recent automobile innovations such as the Chevrolet Volt, Toyota Prius etc. by 110 years!

THE LATE SHOW (c) LAHARY

Lahary Pittman, The Late Show, 2006

Also this Spring my photograph “The Late Show”, 2006 (16×20″ metallic Lambda print on black Sintra) was exhibited in the exhibition “Kinetic” for two months ending in May in Poughkeepsie, NY. The work is a classic illustration of in-camera effects in which shutter speed settings capture the motion blur of a yellow cab precisely at the center of a sharply focused, static Ed Sullivan Theatre.
