Paul Cava is a private dealer specializing in vintage and contemporary photography as well as contemporary prints — including works by 19th and 20th century masters of photography such as: Julia Margaret Cameron, Eugene Atget, Gertrude Kasebier, George H. Seeley, Clarence H. White, and many others. Cava also has an outstanding collection of 19th century large-plate tintypes, represented in the fully illustrated catalog, Collodion Visions.
Another area of interest are photographs made by and for artist’s — such as the extraordinary archive of photographic studies by Frank Brangwyn, executed between 1900-1930. Jose Maria Sert, another internationally acclaimed muralist in the 1920’s, used photographs as studies for his dynamic murals. In a more contemporary vein, the 70’s photorealist painter Jerry Ott, created photographic studies that are squared-up, painted and taped — embodying the history of the process leading to the artist’s final work.
Jock Sturges, who photographs the nude figure in the natural environment, is known for his portraiture of individuals and families taken over several decades. Cava published two deluxe limited edition portfolios of his prints; Standing On Water, and Jock Sturges: Twenty-Five Years.
Other contemporary photographers represented are James Fee, Katia Chausheva, John Dugdale, Mark and Kristen Sink, David Lebe, Adam Fuss and Bear Kirkpatrick. Contemporary prints include works by Mel Bochner, Terry Winters and Philip Guston.
