This exhibition will run through September 9, 2012
Well before color reproductions and color snapshots became commonplace, pioneering photographer Harry Warnecke (1900–1984) and his associates at the New York Daily News’ photo studio created brilliant, eye-popping color portraits for the newspaper’s Sunday News magazine.
Employing a special one-shot camera of his own design, Warnecke began producing color images for the Daily News in the 1930s by utilizing the technically demanding, tri-color carbro process—the first practical method for color photography. Over the course of three decades, Warnecke and his team photographed hundreds of people in the news, from popular film stars and athletes to military leaders and government officials.If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area through September, 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.
