DOH 4

On Monday 11/17 we will be releasing the 3rd collaboration with legendary photographer Al Rockoff. This print is entitled Duality of Humanity 4 and is, of course, part of the DOH Series. The print is an edition of 450 and will be $50.

For those of you who are interested in seeing more of Al’s work. We are happy to announce an exhibition he will be opening this Saturday at the Composition Gallery in Atlanta, GA. More information is included below. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and experience some incredible moments in history.

The American War: Photographs by Al Rockoff
At the Composition Gallery, Atlanta, Georgia

Opening Reception:
Saturday November 15th 2008, 7-10pm
through Sunday December 28th, 2008


Legendary photojournalist Al Rockoff has spent the bulk of his working life documenting war and the aftermath of war in Southeast Asia. He spent several years as a combat photographer, covering what he calls “The American War” in Vietnam. Then, from 1973 to 1975, Rockoff worked as a freelance photographer in Cambodia and was one of the few journalists who remained to capture the fall of Phnom Penh and the brutality of the Khmer Rouge.

“I shed blood for my art”, says Rockoff, whose passion for truthful combat photography left him wounded nine times. His stunning photographs have been published in numerous newspapers and magazines, including Newsweek and the New York Times, and he was portrayed, albeit inaccurately, by John Malkovich in the Academy Award winning film The Killing Fields.

Mr. Rockoff continues to return to Cambodia, adding to his inventory of images for an upcoming book. By chronicling the country’s emergence from the war, and its post-Khmer Rouge reconstruction, he hopes to correct the misconceptions that exist regarding its destruction. “The blood debt that America owes Cambodia is a big one” Rockoff says of the American invasion and its aftermath.

Recently, Rockoff has collaborated with renowned illustrator and graphic artist Shepard Fairey to create a series of prints based on several of his photographs. This project has been immediately successful and the first two prints have completely sold out. Shepard feels that these images draw parallels between the complex emotions surrounding the Vietnam War and those felt now about the invasion of Iraq. “Al Rockoff’s photos reveal the brutality, but also the conflicted humanity seen in war. The risks Rockoff took to capture his images were often as great as the risks of the subjects he wished to document. I am honored to be able to work with Al Rockoff”.
Shepard Fairey

Composition Gallery is extremely proud to host this first ever U.S. gallery exhibition of Mr. Rockoff’s incomparable photographs, which serve as timeless reminders of the intended, as well as the unintended consequences of war. I would like to thank Al, along with his friend and collaborator Cory Sontag for their efforts and their generosity in allowing me this opportunity. Ron Hughes/Composition Gallery
