Review: Scheinbaum & Russek in ARTnews

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, May 20, 2014
On View

through March 31, 2014

This exhibition is a sampling of predominantly vintage works by some of photography's greats, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Edward Weston, Minor White, and Eugene Atget among others.  All but one of the 20 or so works in the exhibition are black and white and small-scale.  The power of these images to hold us in a day when the monumental color print reigns king among makers is striking.  In comparison to more contemporary works these images are gripping and intimate: they are lyrical and poetic, and well-framed for the dramatic.  A certain attention was knowingly paid to the subject.  We sense the moment was waited for and while post-production manipulation has always been possible there is a purity to the frames that feels fresh.  Memorable inclusions are a portrait of Frida Kahlo by Alvarez Bravo,  Nude Armpit by Walter Chappell, feet by Aaron Siskind, and Thistle by Paul Caponigro.
