Ralph Gabriner-headshot“These photographs are no act of imagination. They exist only as the accidental result of shoe leather meeting subject matter. This is my way of saying at the outset that I approach without preconception.  Anyway, life is much stranger than I could ever imagine.  It is an odd fact, but for me the act of stumbling around is more effective as a method for taking pictures (even though it’s a tiresome process) than it would be to hire some actors and stage a play for the camera.

For example, I would never have the imagination to blow life into a line of laundry as it was drying on a windy day.  And, it would never occur to me to devise a giant machine that crushes rock and then place a man on top of this machine wearing a bandana while the mirage of a new car floats in the sky behind him.  Only the greatest theatrical talent could imagine such a thing, and then to stage it, why it would cost a fortune!  It’s better to stroll around the Bronx where such things are known to take place, free of charge.  And, even if you had the money to squander on such a project how would you ever train birds to fly in formation beneath an overhead pipeline?

No, I’ve thought about this awhile now, and I’ve come to this conclusion:  There is no concept born in my brain that could ever be as vital as the interweaving of elements that occurs every day without my even saying a word or issuing a command.  One just has to get out and “be there.”  In case you don’t have the time for that, I’ve done it for you.”

Americana Art Opening


“I would like to give a big shout out of thanks to the 500 artists, friends, guests and supporters of transFORM’s Art Gallery and custom cabinetry for making our February 5th, “Americana” Art Opening such a spectacular success.

The evening had a sense of camaraderie and warmth on a cold winter night, both within our walls and at the adjoining 7th Floor showrooms. It’s safe to say this collection of artists has taken the Gallery to the next level by showing their exemplary use of color, imagery and technique. Their works have shown internationally and are recognized as great investments.
