Available for the first time ever, a selection of the photographic offshoots and out-takes discovered by JED will be for sale at The Outsider Art Fair opening on January 21st at The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street in New York City. Presented by Marion Harris, an exhibitor since the fair’s inception 23 years ago, the work is a new addition to the Outsider field.

A variation on the genre of vernacular or “found” photographs, JED’s images have been retrieved(with permission) after being deliberately discarded by their original makers over the last decade.

Inspired by the concept of “The Artist’s Struggle”, these abandoned photographic images and test strips are presented out of context exemplifying the historical search for the perfect photograph.

JED is the fictitious persona of a university professor and photographer whose work has been exhibited internationally and is in private and museum collections — a background that gives theviewer and collector an unusual insight into the authority behind the photographic edit.

It is, literally, the story as seen from the outside. The process of selection, curation and editing is a visual narrative told by JED.

First shown at Lyman Allyn Art Museum in Connecticut in 2008, JED’s intent is to encourage a dialogue comparing the value of work by professional and untrained photographers.

Stammering translated sonnet in which the poet sends the rains of Havana to her love in New York

Suzanne Gardinier1961

Got your message, here
in the letter you didn’t write:
burned, with a forbidden seal,
marking the burial site
of what has neither voice nor definition,
what has no face, no peace, no place to sleep,
a whisper in which I can’t [inaudible]
—what the sea doesn’t say, whispering, every night,
and when the rain comes to erase the streets
tomorrow, & all the dusks that follow that,
and runs around making up street dances
from what you once said, I’ll have this map,
without details, made of what I’ve missed,
telling me that that which isn’t is.


Soneto Balbuciendo En Que La Poeta Manda A Su Amor En Nueva York La Lluvia de La Habana

He leído el mensaje que mandaste,
aquí, en la carta no me has escrito:
quemada, y con sello prohibido,
diciéndome dónde enterraste
lo que no tiene voz ni luz ni cara,
ni paz, ni un lugar para dormir,
susurro donde yo puedo oír
cada noche lo que no dice el mar,
y cuando la lluvia borrará las calles
mañana, y los crepúsculos después,
y correrá haciendo bailes
de lo que me dijiste una vez,
yo tendré este mapa, sin detalles,
que me dice que lo que no es, es.
