This exhibition will run through May 23, 2010
Photographers have long been seduced by the subtle, lustrous, and rich shades of the platinum print, which range from the deepest blacks to the most delicate shades of white. An exhibition of some 75 works dating from the late nineteenth century to the present, The Platinum Process showcases a selection of outstanding platinum prints drawn from the Museum’s collection. Highlights include photographs by early masters of the platinum process including Frederick H. Evans (1853–1943) and Paul Strand (1890–1976), as well as works by skilled contemporary practitioners such as Lois Conner (born 1951).While this exhibition encompasses a broad range of artists, The Platinum Process features one of the Museum’s treasures: Paul Strand’s iconic 1915 masterpiece “Wall Street.”
If you’re in the Philadelphia area through late May, I strongly suggest you take in this terrific exhibition.
As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.
