The Art and the Industry at the Keith de Lellis Gallery The Keith de Lellis Gallery is proud to announce its new exhibition: Art and Industry.
This group exhibition of vintage 20th century Industrial Photography shows the life of men working in the industry at a time where economic growth was important. Taken in black in white those pictures reveal the intensity of the time. The frame and light are also what make those images so interesting and in some way magical.
The Keith de Lellis Gallery presents strong and sometimes, for some people, unknown pictures.
The photographers presented are : Margaret Bourke-White, Gordon Coster, Mario Finochiarro, Giusepe Goffis, Harold Haliday Costain, Simpson Kalisher, Herbert Matter, Gordon Parks, Edward Quigley, Paul Woolf and others.
