American Photography From Berenice Abbott to Alec Soth - Kunsthandel Jörg Maaß
The 40 works range from early black and white photographs to the classic icons of American color photography.
A number of great photographers played a large role in forming and defining the American Myth. The discovery of everyday aspects of American life was decisive in this: cities and symbols, cars, signs, billboards, advertising, telephone poles, parking lots and barbershops.
People are a second aspect of the wide-ranging exhibition, from the years of the Great Depression to impressive portraits of celebrities.
The comparison of almost a century of American photographs results in an interesting structure of similarities and contrasts, which are balanced through the selective choice of images.
The exhibition begins with works of the early 20th century by Paul Strand and Berenice Abbott, who both show ...
New York Photographs - Sexy and the CityYossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce Sexy and the City, a summer group show on view from Thursday, July 9, through Friday, August 28, 2009.
Sexy and the City shows the alluring, romantic and sometimes scandalous side of New York's people and places. Capturing private, intimate moments and blatant displays of sexuality, these photographs span the decades from the 1940s to the present day, taken in landmark locations like the Brooklyn Bridge and in the quiet, out-of-the-way corners of the city.
From Alfred Eisenstaedt's iconic image of a kissing couple in Times Square on V-J Day, 1945, to Nan Goldin's drag queen on an anonymous New York street in the 1990s, from Garry Winogrand's topless woman surrounded by a crowd in Central Park to the homosexual couples photographed by Alvin Baltr...
Tod Papageorge Passing through EdenWe are delighted to announce the first UK solo exhibition of work by Tod Papageorge. Taken between 1969 and 1991, these black and white photographs capture the primeval character of Central Park, the human tragedy and comedy in this particular vision of Eden.
During the 1970s, when Papageorge began to work on this series, Central Park was portrayed as a dangerous place not to be visited after dark. These photographs depict a different view showing innocence, beauty, ugliness, isolation, chaos and humour - the whole scope of human life on view within the park. Papageorge parallels this series with the first four books of Genesis, pulling the disparate images together by presenting the park as a public Eden, his elegy to a lost Elysium. This projected narrative lends the photographs structure and gravity: the audience c...
