RGb: Modern. Digital. American. Photography

Opens March 4 RGb: Modern. Digital. American. Photography Through March 25 The New BLK Gallery 1213 Jones St., thenewblk.com Photographer Bill Sitzmann has crazy, innovative ideas — clay prints with varnish applied to them, no glass, more of an automotive feel, shiny — things painters have done, not photographers. The Omaha-based artist is the nephew of local photographer Mike Malone and was fortunate enough to be asked to shoot The Faint in 2001. His career took off. Contributing to publications such as Rolling Stone and Time Magazine, Sitzmann is living his dream. “I’ve always been interested in photographers like Annie Leibowitz, but most of the stuff I do now is more like social commentary,” he says. “It’s not overtly political. It’s more whimsical. I have a mini-series called ‘Time Savers’ that include photos with someone smoking in the shower, stuff that makes me laugh.” Although his days of shooting bands like Wolf Parade and Bright Eyes are more limited, he is still as tenacious as day one. His new exhibit at the New Blk starts with a reception at 6 p.m. Friday.
