Photo Friday: Rosalind Solomon, Flowers Are Not the Story

The focus of the May Photo Friday will be on the work of New York City-based artist Rosalind Fox Solomon. Across diverse societies and circumstances, she examines relationships and ritual; survival and struggle. The selection of photographs references flowers, as in “April showers bring May flowers” which allows for a fine cross-section of her amazing images to be highlighted. The Rosalind Solomon Archive at the Center contains over 1000 fine prints, unique books and other art works which, together with her original negatives, transparencies, personal papers and other documentation, chronicle her long and productive career. Ms. Solomon’s images continue to be widely published and exhibited around the world.

 

Special guided exhibition tours of Charles Harbutt, Departures and Arrivals will be available during Photo Friday at 10:30am and 12:30pm. Please meet in the lobby for these 30-40 minute highlight tours with Cass Fey, Curator of Education.

This will be the last Photo Friday until September 2014. Rosalind Solomon will be present for this event.
