Martine Franck: Peregrinations
June 22, 2012 – August 3, 2012
Martine Franck is one of the best female photojournalists working today. A member of the legendary Magnum Photo Agency (and the founder and the president of the Henri Cartier Bresson Foundation in Paris), Franck is best known for her portraits of artists and writers, and for her humanitarian reportage—as when she traveled to the remote island of Tory, off the northwest coast of Ireland, to document the traditional Gaelic community living there. This exhibition, though it includes some of her iconic images, tends more toward the aesthetic: large gelatin silver prints of abstract landscapes, from Norway, Djibouti, the desert of Wadi Rum, Agadir, Provence. The photos are black and white, linear, geometrical, and striking.
The Howard Greenberg Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 AM-6 PM. For more information, visit howardgreenberg.com
