Public Faces/Private Spaces: Recent Aquisitions
October10,2006 – February 7th, 2007 at the
Getty Center

Great show in a beautiful location. Perfect weather this weekend to go to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

“Mary Ellen Mark, Bill Owens, Anthony Hernandez, and Donald Blumberg are midcareer American photographers who share a commitment to observing the people and places that define community. Responding to the genres of portraiture, street photography, and social documentation, each artist works in a serial manner to capture moments that oscillate between the public and the private, between the newsworthy and the everyday.

This exhibition presents recently acquired works, all excerpted from series that the artists made from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s.”
