Don McCullin

September 11 - November 16

NEW YORK— Sir Don McCullin is widely recognized as one of the world’s greatest photojournalists. Following his recent retrospective at Tate Britain, which received more than 170,000 visitors, forty photographs from McCullin’s six-decade career will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from September 11 through November 16, 2019. This marks his first solo exhibition in New York since 2001, when The Lost Continent, his images of Africa, were presented at the United Nations headquarters.

 

McCullin’s iconic photographs from Vietnam, Northern Ireland, Syria, and many other sites of conflict are recognized for their brutal honesty, compassion, and their mastery of light and composition. His work in England opens a window into the impoverished lives of people in London’s East End and the industrial north; his contemplative landscapes near his home in Somerset offer a quieter, peaceful moment of repose amidst the human tragedies to which he has borne witness with his camera.

 

“Photography has given me a life,” McCullin has said. “The very least I could do was try and articulate these stories with as much compassion and clarity as they deserve, with as loud a voice as I could muster. Anything less would be mercenary.”

 

“I didn’t consider the danger,” he told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in a 2016 interview, “but it’s in my blood. It’s what I’ve done for the last 60 years.”

 

About Don McCullin

Born in 1935, McCullin grew up in north London amidst the blight of the aftermath of the bombings of World War ll. At the age of fifteen, he left school and joined the Royal Air Force as a photographic assistant in Egypt, Cyprus, and Kenya, where he bought his first camera. Beginning in the 1960s, McCullin worked as a photographer documenting war and other human conflict in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Northern Ireland, primarily for the Sunday Times Magazine. In the 1980s, McCullin began to capture other subjects, traveling to Indonesia, India, and Africa and returning with dramatic photo essays focused on remote places and peoples. Over the past three decades, he turned to the English landscape for more serene images, which are the subject of his most recent book, published in 2018. And, he has continued to document conflict in recent years, travelling to northern Iraq to photograph the Kurds’ struggle with ISIS, Syria, and Turkey in October 2015.

 

Among McCullin’s many honors are a 1961 British Press Award for his essay on the construction of the Berlin Wall, a World Press Photo of the Year award in 1964 for his coverage of the armed eruption of ethnic and nationalistic tension in Cyprus. In 1993 he was the first photojournalist to be awarded a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire). McCullin was awarded the 2006 Cornell Capa Award by the International Center for Photography in New York for his lifetime contribution to the medium, and in 2017, he was awarded a knighthood by the Queen of England for his services to photography.

 

He is the author of more than a dozen books (mostly published by Jonathan Cape), including his autobiography Unreasonable Behaviour, 1990, updated and published again in 2015, and Don McCullin: The New Definitive Edition retrospective, published the same year. In 2010 he published Southern Frontiers, a record of the Roman Empire’s legacy in North Africa and the Middle East. McCullin’s work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions including Tate Britain, Barbican Centre, Imperial War Museum, London; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; and National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. His work is held in museum collections around the world including Tate and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

H. David Stein: “Spotlight”

November 1 - December 1

In this series of photographs Stein has “spotlighted” portions of the photograph by leaving them in color.  He then alters the black and white remainder of the photograph to make features become more prominent or recede into the background.  The juxtaposition of the color and “black and white” draw your eyes to the various elements of the photograph.  The images are then either printed on metallic photo paper or aluminum giving a metallic sheen to the black and white elements of the photograph.  The images Stein has created reinforce the very nature of photography.

MOMENTS OF BEING

What would such an inexperienced soul do without
the solution that a body had been”
-Clarice Lispector

Snapshots of the life within.
Echoes of thoughts and feelings expressed in the only terms I really understand which are those of light and shadow and the softening of edges.
The things expressed have already happened. Here they are remembered tenderly, in the repose of passion.

Photos, Please Do Not Bend: The Catherine Johnson Collection

October 8 - December 29

Johnson’s collection of amateur and vernacular photography will include approximately 200 photos on display, spanning multiple decades. Each group of pictures will be accompanied by a moving quote about dogs relating to the selected photographs.

The title of the exhibition, “Photos, Please Do Not Bend,” refers to a time when photographic prints, due to the time and expense in obtaining them, held more esteem as valued objects. Before the advent of the polaroid camera, one often waited for photos to arrive via mail. Envelopes were marked “Photos, Please Do Not Bend.” This collection allows a glimpse into the lives of dog owners and their relationships with their companions.

The Distance of the Moon

November 9, 2019 - March 15, 2020

In 1969, the astronauts aboard Apollo 11 made history by becoming the first people to set foot on the moon. Unbeknownst to them, this year also marked the arrival of the first works of art to the lunar surface—The Moon Museum. Covertly orchestrated by members of the group Experiments in Art and Technology, a miniscule ceramic tile bearing reproductions of artworks by six artists was snuck onto the lander. A rare original tile, featuring work by Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Forrest Myers, David Novros and John Chamberlain, will be on view in The Distance of the Moon.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, this exhibition examines the moon through the lens of photography and video. From Georges Méliès early film Le voyage dans la lune (1902) to Robert Longo’s striking study Untitled (Moon in Shadow) (2006), the moon has served as an important touchstone and inspired countless works of art and imagined lunar voyages. Utilizing images from exploratory missions to the moon, Nancy Graves created an immersive filmic meditation on surface textures and sonic space. Over forty years in the making, James Turrell has slowly transformed a dormant volcano into an aperture for observing the moon and other heavenly bodies.

Moody nocturnes and celebratory renderings are shown alongside early stereographs of the full moon, made possible by the most advanced photographic technology of the day. Combining historic prints with modern images of the lunar surface taken by NASA on a series of exploratory missions, The Distance of the Moon considers the relationship between artistic impulse and scientific discovery, and our collective fascination with this celestial body.

Artists: Nancy Graves, Craig Kalpakjian, Robert Longo, Georges Méliès, and James Turrell, with additional materials from the Archive of Amateur Astronomers Society of Voorhees and NASA

Robert W. Fichter: Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter

August 28 - December 18

Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter presents the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. Drawn from his archive at UMBC, 55 works created between 1962 and 2006 highlight Fichter’s exploration of the human condition across photography, printmaking, and painting. Fichter employs shifting moods and mediums as well as wit, humor, and satire to deliver trenchant critiques of war, nuclear proliferation, and environmental disaster. Firmly rooting his expressive compositions in a strong sense of place—the surreal landscapes of his native Florida—Fichter presents a singular vision of humanity on the brink.

Weather Report

October 6, 2019 - March 29, 2020

Weather Report will reveal the sky as a site where the aesthetic, the romantic, the political, the social, and the scientific co-exist and inform one another. The depiction of weather phenomena in the visual arts is traditionally linked with either landscape painting or photography, but in the last two decades artists have increasingly turned to other media to explore weather and, by extension, the larger subject of the Earth’s atmosphere. Featuring the work of Bigert & Bergström, Barbara Bloom, Sara Bouchard, Nick Cave, Violet Dennison, Bryan Nash Gill, Andy Goldsworthy, Nancy Graves, Ellen Harvey, Ayumi Ishii, Jitish Kallat, Kim Keever, Byron Kim, Damian Loeb, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Colin McMullan, Hitoshi Nomura, Pat Pickett, Sean Salstrom, and Jennifer Steinkamp, and an installation by researchers Amanda Bunce, Joel Salisbury, and Michael Vertefeuille. The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with an essay by exhibition curator Richard Klein.
