Exhibition highlights include the following among many others.
One of the most innovative American photographers of the 1970s and ’80s, Marcia Resnick is today best known for her portraits of the creative community in downtown New York City during that era. Deborah Bell Photographs, New York, will present work from Resnick’s 1978 series Re-visions. Her first museum exhibition is traveling in 2022-23 from the Bowdoin College Museum of Art to the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the George Eastman Museum.
The work of Lora Webb Nichols has been recently discovered, and her early 20th-century photographs from the small frontier town of Encampment, Wyoming, have been met with acclaim. Danziger Gallery, New York, will present a rare viewing of her work. She became a photographer for hire during a copper mining boom, subsequently opened a studio, and accumulated a distinctive and surprising body of work that comprises 24,000 negatives.
Galerie Johannes Faber, Vienna, specializes in classic, modern, and vintage photographs from the 20th century. For AIPAD, the gallery is featuring masterworks by Berenice Abbott, Robert Frank, Rudolf Koppitz, Heinrich Kühn, Robert Mapplethorpe, Irving Penn, Josef Sudek, Edward Weston, and others.
Howard Greenberg Gallery, New York, will feature works by Baldwin Lee, a first-generation Chinese-American, who took a 2,000-mile road trip through the American South in the 1980s. Lee, a student of Walker Evans, photographed Black Americans at home, at work, and at play, and created one of the most piercing and poignant bodies of work of its time.
Three images by rock photographer Joel Bernstein of singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell skating on a lake in Wisconsin—one of which was chosen for the gatefold of her 1976 Hejira album—will be on view at Scott Nichols Gallery, Sonoma. The gallery will also show rare photographs by Ansel Adams.
Recognized for her portraits of film, theater, and dance stars since the mid-1930s, Annemarie Heinrich was a pivotal figure in the development of modern photography in Argentina. Vasari, Buenos Aires, will dedicate a solo show to Heinrich, showcasing examples of her experimentation, her use of chiaroscuro and multiple exposures, as well as her sensitivity to the face and the human body. Portraits, nudes, hands and feet, and figures of dance and theater are recurring images in her work.
A thematic exhibition of vintage work by Mexican artists and by artists working in Mexico will be presented by Charles Isaacs Photographs, New York. Among those featured will be the modernist Emilio Amero; the Polish-born Bernice Kolko, who was close with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera; and Armando Salas Portugal, one of Mexico’s most prolific and important photographers.
Monroe Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe, will present two distinct exhibitions exemplifying the power and immediacy of photojournalism. The first recognizes the new wave of independent photojournalists who are battling situational danger amidst growing public skepticism of the media. The second exhibition features the work of Tony Vaccaro, who has survived the Normandy Invasion and Covid-19 and just recently celebrated his 99th birthday.
