Six from the Seventies: The Last Years of Modern Photography

Main Gallery

June 18 – August 28, 2004

Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery will present the work of six photographers whose reputations were established during the 1970s, reflecting the varying expressive forces of the period.  Several have not shown their work in New York since then or have been overshadowed by their aesthetic offspring.  "Six From the Seventies" includes work that predicts aspects of Post-Modernist approaches, such as appropriation and recycled imagery; the freestyle collage possibilities of the coming digital age and the essential documentary and personal modes that characterize the decade.  The photographers included are Michael Bishop, Frank Gohlke, William Larson, Michael Martone, Joel Meyerowitz and Bea Nettles.
