The series was commissioned by and recently exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and is comprised of portraits of the majestic burial horses of Arlington National Cemetery. Dumas photographed these animals in their stalls as they relaxed and moved towards sleep after a day of work. Exposed only with available light, these pictures are both powerful and intimate. She has also created a video work portraying the animals at rest that will be screened in the project gallery.

September 8 – October 15, 2011
Opening reception: Thursday, September 8, 2011
The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to present a selection of photographs from Charlotte Dumas‘ new project and book Retrieved. Earlier this year Dumas set out to photograph the surviving rescue dogs that, in the aftermath of 9/11, worked at the sites at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Out of the group of almost 100 dogs originally deployed by FEMA, she located 15 surviving rescue dogs and arranged to photograph them. The now retired dogs are all still living with their owners, and she visited them in their homes in twelve different states. At the time of the attacks, all of the dogs were at least 2 years old, so today they are in their old age.

July 13-August 26, 2011
Opening celebration, Wednesday, July 13, 6-8 pm
The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition celebrating 25 years as a public gallery in New York City. The gallery was launched together with founding partner Nancy Lieberman in May 1986 and continued as Lieberman & Saul until the gallery moved to 560 Broadway in 1993.
The exhibition will feature the work of one artist selected from the exhibition program for each year, beginning in 1984 and concluding with 2010, including work by Rineke Dijkstra as presented in 1997. Many of these artists have worked with the gallery for many years- for example Andrew Bush, Sally Gall, Bill Jacobson, Sarah Anne Johnson. In almost all cases the work has either been borrowed back from collectors or is represented as an editioned photograph. Many of the lenders are long time supporters of the gallery.

November 4 – December 23, 2010
Opening reception: Thursday, November 4, 6-8pm
The Julie Saul Gallery would like to announce its first exhibition of works by Charlotte Dumas entitled Repose. The show will feature works from several of the artist’s series of animal photographs including Reverie, Tiger Tiger, Heart Shaped Hole, and Heart of a Dog. In each of these projects, Dumas uses a medium format camera to highlight the intricacies of the relationship between humans and their animal counterparts, creating an intimate feeling between the viewer and her depictions of dogs while distancing the viewer from the more dangerous subjects of the wolf and tiger.
Dumas inspires people to sympathize with the ever-caged animal, entrapped in a world dominated by the supreme mammal-human. In her series Reverie (2005), Charlotte Dumas focused on the subject of wolves, traveling to Norway and Sweden to create portraits of the majestic canines. Despite her close proximity to the wolves in her photographs, Dumas reveals the vast distance between the world of humans and wolves as her photographs portray the wolf as an enigmatic, unfathomable being.

Dumas traveled to the United States to create her series of tiger portraits entitled Tiger Tiger (2007), photographing these animals within the confines of zoos, parks, and sanctuaries, in Indiana and Texas. This project explores the dual role of the sanctuary as it restricts the animal from its natural habitat as well as protects it from extinction.
In her most recent projects, Heart-Shaped Hole (2008) and Heart of a Dog (2009), Dumas photographed stray dogs in Palermo and New York City, shedding light on the plight of strays amidst the chaos of the urban environment.
