Mid-twentieth century master photographer, Wynn Bullock, is best known for his evocative black and white images. Early in the 1960’s, Bullock began creating color photographs of light. Hampered by the limitations of color printing at that time, he was unable to make stable, exhibit-quality prints of these abstract images before his death. This is the first solo exhibit of the high-quality archival prints that have been produced from Bullock’s original slides, using the superior color reproduction processes available today.
A new 96-page monograph is being released to accompany the exhibition containing full page color reproductions of the exhibit prints. Edited by Bullock’s daughter Barbara Bullock-Wilson, designed by Bert Ihlenfeld, and printed by Dual Graphics, it is the first major publication devoted to Bullock’s abstract color imagery. Barbara Bullock-Wilson will be available to inscribe the catalogue for collectors at the opening reception.”
