Private Views, Photographs by Barbara Crane
Talk and Book Signing
Saturday, May 2, 2009
The Merchandise Mart
222 Merchandise Mart Plaza,12th Floor
In the early 1980s, photographer Barbara Crane embarked on a photographic project shot during Chicago’s various summer festivals. Armed with a Super Speed Graphic camera and Polaroid film, Crane waded in close to the revelers and focused on capturing the details of clothing and hairstyles, but most important, gesture. Private Views (Aperture, May 2009) features these mesmerizing and intensely compelling Polaroid snapshots documenting the public expression of euphoria.
Join Crane at Art Chicago for a discussion about this series followed by a signing of this newly released monograph.
This event is held in conjunction with Art Chicago (May 1-4)
Crane’s exhibition “Challenging Vision” is on view at the Amon Carter Museum through May 10
