Diane Arbus: In the Beginning – Met Breuer Reveals Never Seen Photographs

Monday, July 11th, 2016

The images of Diane Arbus are forever burned into my brain. Her Aperture Monograph was a gift in 1972, and as she had taken her own life a year before, the photographs of those on the fringes, were forever perceived as a deeper insight into this artist’s mind.

Robert Frank : Books and Films, 1947-2016

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

There is an iconography of Robert Frank’s work, that is undeniable. His book, The Americans, was shot in the 1950’s by way of a Guggenheim grant, and showed us a side of America that existed, but was not the mainstream imagery. The book changed the look of photography, forever.

Dave Heath: A Dialogue With Solitude At The Howard Greenberg Gallery

Those who know me know that MOMA is a touchpoint for me, as the ever changing collection of art, […]
