Seeing In Tempo, intriguing perspectives of landscape by playwright, book author, and photographer Calvin Ramsey will be exhibited in his first U. S. showing with the June Kelly Gallery: Opening on Thursday, July 1, the work will remain on view through July 30, 2021. Contact: [email protected]… / 212-226-1660.

Ramsey says photography forces him to see and endow ordinary things with a rhythm, tempo, and purpose. This body of landscape photos shot from the windows of trains moving across the country and Ramsey's sojourns walking in wanderlust on New York's Upper East Side coerce one to look at landscapes in a unique way...echoing passage of time. In 2004 while traveling from Atlanta to Valdez, Alaska, through the camera's eye, Ramsey conceived of landscape not unlike independent film stills intuitively captured while speedily passing. The intermedia of non-representational language with visual elements fascinates as visual poetry.

Ramsey's photographs have been exhibited in the U.S. Virgin Islands and are included in private collections in the United States. Throughout the varied sequences in his career, Ramsey received the Jane Adams award for Ruth, The Green Book, and Belle, The Last Mule at Gees Bend, the Bank Street College Best Book award, Texas Blue Bonnet Award, Forward Magazine Best Book award, ALA Notable Book award, and the Star Review School Library Journal Award. Ramsey was a recipient of the distinguished Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major for Justice Award. Ramsey is a member of the National Arts Club, New York, Sons of The American Revolution, and a former Trustee at the Bronx Museum of Art, New York.
