Many times, street photography is an act of self-discovery and self-expression. Often, the most powerful street photos are those that resonate deeply with the photographer himself, those in which the subject captured represents something within the photographer. Now, an exhibit at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York is exploring this concept through the photographic works of three extremely talented women: Diane Arbus, Rosalind Fox Solomon and Lisette Model. Here’s a little about the exhibit from its curators:
Having each been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the strength of these individual voices is well acknowledged within the photographic canon. For the first time since 1977, when Lisette Model, Diane Arbus and Rosalind Fox Solomon were first exhibited together at Galerie Zabriskie, Paris, viewers will have the opportunity to experience these powerful voices speaking together once again, surrounded and confronted by over 40 original works.
It was Lisette Model who said, “We are the subject, the object is the world around us.” This exhibit explores the way photographers often strive to learn about themselves through their interactions with others. The result of this endeavour for Model, Arbus and Solomon was powerful images that explain what we know about self, others and humanity in general without a single word. This is definitely an exhibit worth visiting. Here’s the details:
