The Insistent Object: Photographs 1845 – 1986

Prompted by the gallery’s acquisition of an important photograph of the early French photographer Charles Aubry, the exhibition deals with photographs of objects that have a particularly emphatic presence. Assembled over the last year, the exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with 27 full-page duotone reproductions.

To quote from the catalog’s introduction:

A Study of a Leaf (Heracleum Longefolium), c. 1864
albumen print

The exhibition included rarely seen works by Fox Talbot, Adolphe Braun, Carleton Watkins, Eugene Atget, Edward Weston, Walker Evans, Man Ray, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, and Robert Mapplethorpe, among others.
