Inspired by Flotsam, Jetsam, What Have Them: Lisa Kereszi and Ron Church Featured in The New York Times

In the Friday, October 19 edition of The New York Times, Dana Jennings highlights books by artists whose work bubbles up from "unexpected fissures." Of photographer Lisa Kereszi's autobiographical 'Joe's Junk Yard', from which the featured image, at left, is reproduced, Jennings writes, "Ms. Kereszi had me from her first photograph of a sprawling squall of deceased tires. I burned lots of time in junkyards as a kid, and Ms. Kereszi’s junkscapes, shot at a Chester, Pa., yard that was in her family for over 50 years, ferried me to a genial place, where the oil-soaked soil glittered with galaxies of shattered glass. Ms. Kereszi is on the faculty of the Yale School of Art these days, but she realizes that stack upon stack of tortured Detroit steel is her legacy. A junkyard: what a perfect place for an artist to be born."
For Jennings' review of the evocative vintage surf photographs of Ron Church, California to Hawaii 1960 to 1965, please see The New York Times' Paper Gallery column.
