New Yorker Review: Will Brown at Laurence Miller Gallery

Will Brown: A Tender Light


through Dec. 20, 2014


The Philadelphia photographer makes his New York gallery début at seventy-seven with a richly atmospheric group of black-and-white streetscapes from the mid-nineteen-seventies. Working early in the morning in a neighborhood that had seen better days, Brown focussed on shop signs, commercial façades, and dusty windows that look like velvet in the soft light. A group of children pose before an open hydrant, and three men watch from their spots on the sidewalk, but most of these sites are unpopulated, and many seem abandoned, giving the work a lovely memorial quality, with echoes of both Eugène Atget and Walker Evans.
