Kim Jimenez

I was going to post a new piece here, but I'm posting this piece on Kim Jimenez from three years ago. Tonight I wrote to my friend Josh, who coincientally is a lifelong friend of Kim's, to check the correct spelling of Kim's name as I want to include this piece in my upcoming book. Josh wrote me back:

TIME MACHINE exhibit in Miami UPDATE


Robert Zuckerman, acclaimed photographer known for creating advertising and/or publicity images for such films as The Crow, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Any Given Sunday, Training Day, Bad Boys 2, National Treasure, Transformers, Pursuit of Happyness and many more, will be exhibiting his vintage fine art imagery (originally from the mid '70s to the early '90s) in a show called TIME MACHINE at the Hardcore Art Contemporary Space in Miami’s Design/Art District, from May 30 to July 4, 2009. There will be two receptions: first on Saturday May 30, 2009 and then on Saturday, June 13, 2009 as part of the Wynwood Gallery Walk.

Zuckerman is also known for his series called KINDSIGHT®, consisting of image-text pairings that illuminate the richness of everyday life through random encounters and moments. In addition to a coveted coffee-table book with a second volume on the way, Zuckerman has been featured on public television, and with KINDSIGHT® has spoken at schools across the country, including the Harvard University Medical School, about youth empowerment and possibility.

Says Zuckerman: “The work represented in TIME MACHINE is my version of being a ‘kid in a candy store,’ such was the experience of discovery, magic and promise. As a young, shy, inhibited boy, the camera early on held great appeal to me. It was a magic box with the power to create images, and it had the power, for me, to access and connect the inner and the outer worlds. Most of these images have been filed away for decades, and now, as I reconnect with them, I find that they have taken on an added dimension of power and meaning.”

And, says noted publisher and curator James Crump: “The artist cast his net wide in sometimes disparate representations, but they all reveal his deep fascination with interior states and the subconscious. With endless narrative potential, these photographs hauntingly foreshadow Zuckerman’s later work. Like Lee Friedlander, Joel Meyerowitz and William Eggleston, Zuckerman himself finds near tragic beauty at every street corner, and yet his pictures are tempered with optimism and light.”

A portion of the artist's proceeds from print sales will go to one or more charitable cause.

Please come to either or both receptions if you are able, and please forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested. THANK YOU

Confessions of a Shopaholic


This image of Leslie Bibb's wonderful legs was made on a Sunday morning on Madison Avenue while I was doing still photography for "Confesssions of a Shopaholic." To me, it conveys in an elegant, sensual way the essence and spirit of this film.
