Review: Tod Papageorge at Pace MacGill

Posted By Administration, Sunday, July 26, 2009

In 1970, when the country was at war with Vietnam, Papageorge traveled across the United States to take photographs of sporting events, including the World Series, the Indianapolis 500, and the Iron Bowl.

More than forty images from that project—all in crisp, no-nonsense black-and-white—focus on spectators and players in the sort of chaotic moments that don't lend themselves to pretty pictures. Papageorge doesn't attempt to mold these events into balanced compositions; he lets them sprawl and tangle but never slacken. Every inch of his photographs counts; nothing feels extraneous.

Read the complete review in The New Yorker.
