Curated by Andrew Epstein, Critical Eye features the selected works from ten New England based photography collectors, all with a focus on the craft of photography in all of its forms.
This wide-ranging exhibition features the works of ten New England based collectors. Ten visions spanning the medium through the twenty and twenty-first century. It is a masterclass in creativity. The work embraces the craft of photography, with wet darkroom techniques spanning alternative processes like albumen, platinum palladium, tintypes and gelatin silver. The visions encompass all genres, including portraiture, landscape, architecture and narrative works. This wide ranging collection sparks the imagination and showcases the vision of each of these collectors.
Works on display from such photographic luminaries as Berenice Abbott, Eugene Atget, Harry Callahan, Imogen Cunningham, Roy DeCarava, Mike Disfarmer, Arthur Wesley Dow, Robert Frank, Lewis Hine, Helen Levitt, Walker Evans and Weegee. We see new works from contemporary artists Julie Blackmon, Abelardo Morell, Matthew Pillsbury, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Carrie Mae Weems.
