25th Anniversary Exhibition at Hans P Kraus Jr

Posted By Administration, Saturday, November 14, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

The gallery celebrates twenty-five years in business with a remarkable group of mostly nineteenth-century photographs.

Among images by Steichen, Stieglitz, Cameron, and Käsebier are several from photography's earliest years, including a daguerreotype by Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey of an Egyptian woman who emerges from a silvery mist like an apparition, and a delicate, foggy fragment by William Henry Fox Talbot, which is shown only on request. Landscapes and architectural views predominate, and none is more arresting than Humphry Lloyd Hime's picture of a Canadian prairie that's as modern and minimal as a Sugimoto seascape.

From the New Yorker.
