About Lili Barchilon
Fred Stein eschews digital technology and works with traditional photographic and coloring methods. Among Stein's admirers is art critic James Auer of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Here's what James Auer wrote about him…
"Fred Stein, a photographer whose hand-colored prints are more painterly than reportorial, explores memory, desire, nostalgia, 'obsession and the nature of his medium in a series of unique images… There is a picture postcard quality here that I find engaging, even moving.
An unabashed idealist, Stein works at the opposite pole from average photojournalist. He sandwiches negatives - i.e. prints one on top of the other and adds touches of unrealistic, even romantic, color. His aim: to convey agape, a Greek term for' unrestrained love.
My personal feeling is that Stein is taking more risks than any of the other photographers in the show, since he is leading with his heart, rather than with his lens. His work is lyrical in an age that resists lyricism, unguarded in a time when most people keep their guard up. Sometimes he fails, but when he succeeds, he makes direct contact, human to human, heart to heart."
Fred Stein has won numerous awards in art fairs including 1st Place in the Sister Kenny International Art Show atMinneapolis, MN in 2000. His work has been exhibited from coast to coast, NY City, Omaha, Long Beach, Green Bay, Oklahoma City Fresno, Milwaukee, Columbus, Chicago and on the Internet.
