Please join us for this informative and exciting conversation between artist Daniel Handal and board member Frank Yamrus as they discuss image-making and how ideas are transformed into finished objects. Handal will present his three most recent projects: Cranach Nudes, Pajaritos and Final Girls and discuss how religious iconography, queerness, and popular culture have influenced his work.

Daniel Handal is a Honduran born artist who lives and works in New York. He received his BS in Applied Sciences from Rutgers University and studied Photography at the International Center of Photography. Handal’s work centers on portraiture and explores issues around identity, desire and representation. His work has been exhibited nationally at ClampArt, New York, NY; New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, NM; Deborah Colton Gallery, Houston, TX; The powerHouse Arena, New York, NY; and internationally at the Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney, Australia; and MKII, London, UK. Handal’s work has been written about in The New York Times, HuffPost, Slate and Hyperallergic, among others. He has participated in residencies at The Millay Colony for the Arts, Austerlitz, NY; Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, Ithaca, NY; and the Center for Photography, Woodstock, NY. Handal serves on the board of directors of Baxter St and is represented by ClampArt in New York.

Frank Yamrus is a fine art photographer who recently moved back to California, this time calling Los Angeles his home. Prior to this relocation, Frank spent eight years in New York City. While living in Manhattan, he started a series of portraits, “A Sense of a Beginning,” capturing in vivid detail and color the impact HIV/AIDS has had on long-term survivors of this disease. In many ways this collection of photographs bookends Frank’s first major body of work, Primitive Behavior.

Having exhibited extensively across the United States and Europe, Frank’s’ images can be found in many public and private collections including London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art, The Kinsey Institute of Indiana University, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Special Collections at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, Austin, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Frank is represented by ClampArt in New York City and Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston.

In addition to producing work, Frank has served on the executive and curatorial committees of the Board of Directors at SF Camerawork from 1999 – 2004. During his tenure at SF Camerawork, he co-curated three exhibitions: Untitled [Conjecture], No Exit: Images of Imprisonment, and The Space Between: Locating Intimacy. Frank has also served on the Board of Directors of Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon and on their National Advisory Board, and is currently on the board of the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, CA.
