Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

This exhibition recently closed at The Met and is now opening at SFMOMA. Contains over 100 photographs of her early work. There's an exhibition hardcover catalogue (256 pages) for USD$50.

Has anyone seen The Met exhibition or bought the catalogue? Thoughts?

I've seen the Met Breuer show and it was worth seeing. I didn't buy the book since I'm currently in downsizing mode. However, the show was very cool.

A very good show, and a great opportunity to see works that you might not have seen before.

I would love to see the Diane Arbus photo exhibition.

Here is an old news article about one of her photo subjects in 2009.

I'm planning on going to one of the member preview days. Probably Thursday as they open late. Get a glass of wine at the cafe and then hit the floor. Let me know if anyone wants a ticket.
