JAY SELDIN’s career began with a BFA in Art from Long Island University, an MA in Visual Art/Photography from William Paterson University, a sabbatical study in Ansel Adams personal program “The Friends of Photography” in Carmel, CA. and a study with George Tice. Jay is a dedicated teacher continuing to instruct in innovative ways since retiring from his high school and college teaching tenures. He offers two types of workshops – In-Studio and Travel. It is the International side of his travel curriculum that led him to Cuba twice, most recently in April of 2012 – resulting in the very topical works that comprise this exhibit. Seldin’s awards and honors include Canson Infinity Artist International program, 2009-2012 Artist-in-Residence at the Newark Art Museum, Newark, NJ 2006-present, Fellowship award from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, 20002006, Adobe PhotoShop Photo Competition, Winner 2007, Summer Artist Residence Fellowship Grant, Provincetown Fine Arts Center- 2001. Distingushed Educators Award from Rochester Institute of Technology 2003. Artist In Residence, Montclair Art Museum 2011 & 2012. Currently he is a faculty member at ICP, International Center for Photography. Jay has over thirty years experience as a professional exhibiting photographer/digital media artist and teacher. His work is in numerous corporate, museum and private collections world wide.


BEYOND THE FACADE: Cuba Revealed features master artist/photographer Jay Seldin’s recent intimate visual narratives of contemporary Cuba. The works provide a six week occasion for visitors to the gallery to experience modern day Cuba firsthand. The work has been curated to draw the viewer into the streets, dwellings, workplaces and lives of this special island that has been “forbidden” to US citizens for so many years. Each of the photographs is a narrative speaking volumes through atmosphere, light, composition and color when Seldin so choses. Jay’s documentary style portraits act as visual short stories revealing meaning as he captures the subtle nuances of gesture, personal interaction and posture. The still-lifes and city/countryscapes literally “freeze” the unique reality of this isla’s persona allowing the viewer a seemingly tangible experience to wander in and explore. All works in the exhibit are available in very limited signed and numbered editions. Curated by Mary Z.
