Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce the first-ever exhibition of photographs by acclaimed actress Jessica Lange. The show is comprised of work covering the last 15 years of Lange’s travel. What began as a way to document her family grew into a document of 15 years of travel around the globe.  From the Yucatan to Russia to Scandinavia; from Minnesota to Romania to Ethiopia, Lange’s images are both cinematic and traditional documentations of a time and place. Although her subjects range from the traditional American carnival to an isolated train track buried in snow, again and again, you have the feeling that “light” is the true subject of her pictures.  In the words of poet and musician Patti Smith, “She likes low light-fast film. Moonlight, Lamplight. Available light. The crystalline February light of Minnesota and the Northern light in the dead of winter when things are suspended and the sun is low coming into a slant.”
