Daniel Blau gallery is delighted to announce the opening of the forthcoming exhibition, Other Portraits; a selection of portraits and self-portraits by twenty-two of some of the most significant and celebrated photographers of the twentieth century.
Included are distinctive photographs by Margaret Bourke-White, Cecil Beaton, Walker Evans, Hugo Adolf Bernatzik, Nobuyoshi Araki, Tina Modotti, Arnold Newman and others. Gandhi, Roosevelt, and Mao Tse Tung are seen alongside portraits of Andy Warhol, Federico Fellini, as well as Nuba tribes people from Sudan. Other Portraits represents an idiosyncratic look at portraiture. The photographs range from the subtle and intimate portrait of “Bernice Abbott” by Walker Evans, to the bold, curious images of “Willem de Kooning” by Arnold Newman. The exhibition is an invitation to explore the essence of each, from a reflective Churchill by Larry Burrows, to the steady eyes of Bourke-White’s self-portrait.
The exhibition will from from 19 September to 25 October 2014, Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm. Opening on 18 September, 6-8 pm. For further details please see the website here.
