Homer Page: In Between

Main Gallery

January 8 – February 20, 2010

Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Homer Page – a gifted but overlooked artist – who actively worked in the 1940s and 50s. The exhibition focuses on an extraordinary body of New York City images which Page produced with funding from a Guggenheim Grant, awarded in 1949.  In a 1950 lecture entitled "What Is Modern Photography?" Edward Steichen, the then MoMA curator of photography, invited Homer Page to participate in a symposium along side 10 prominent photographers including Walker Evans, Irving Penn, and Aaron Siskind. Today, sixty years later, his vintage prints appear remarkably fresh, originally seen, and deeply felt.
