Three New Exhibitions, Opening on November 19

MAIN GALLERIES

November 19, 2016 – March 5, 2017

Sight and Feeling: Photographs by Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams’ ability to create photographs with a remarkable range and subtlety of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. This exhibition of Adams’ photographs, from the collection of the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan, suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.

Long Island Collects: Photography

Long Island Collects: Photography seeks to focus on significant photographic works created from the 1960s through the present day. Historically, photography has been used as a documentary medium to tell a story. Using the malleable medium of the photographer, artists have often enhanced or staged their works to convey a story, create emotion, or otherwise touch the viewer in a significant manner. This exhibition presents a survey of photographic works from private collectors. Among the artists included in Long Island Collects: Photography are John Baldessari,

Cindy Sherman, Untitled (Film Still #43), 1979, Gelatin silver print, 30 X 40 inches, Dr. Harvey Manes

Stryker’s America: Photographing the Great Depression
Roy E. Stryker headed the Historical Division of the Farm Security Administration from 1935 to 1943. This program tells the story of how Stryker, a low-level federal bureaucrat with integrity and vision, managed a massive New Deal project to document the Great Depression. These photos—nearly 200,000 by both established and aspiring photographers, including Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Arthur Rothstein, and many others—became the defining statement of the era. Many signature images of poverty and hardship are included. Narrated by Beverly Brannan, curator of photography at the Library of Congress; Alan Fern, retired director of the National Portrait Gallery; and Peter Kuznick, professor of history at American University.

Cartier-Bresson’s Century
Few have revolutionized photography as much as French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson has. The father of modern photojournalism contributed spreading the “street photography” or “life reportage”, a style that influenced generations of photographers. In this documentary, he narrates the crucial moments of his life, such as his meeting with Gandhi, while his shots illustrate his work.
