Ten Haaf Projects is pleased to announce: “The Big Picture”, a group show with four American photographers: Mark Alor Powell, Anders Goldfarb, Garry Winogrand and Weegee.
Mark Alor Powell (1968) lives in Mexico City. His work consists of people, animals and objects on the streets of Mexico. Far from a cold representation of reality, his images often consist of dark humour, but are always humane and striking in their composition. Powell has exhibited in galleries around the globe, including the Brooklyn Institute of Contemporary Art, the New Museum in New York City and Museo Eco in Mexico City.
Anders Goldfarb (1953) has been an assistant to Saul Leiter (currently in a retrospective at the Jewish Historic Museum Amsterdam). Goldfarb who only photographs in black and white, documents the world around him: the apparent simplicity of everyday scenes meticulously composed and lyrical in vision. Goldfarb has exhibited in museums such as PS1 New York, and galleries worldwide.
Garry Winogrand (1928 -1986) roamed the streets photographing spontaneously. Winogrand was interested in social issues and relationships between humans, and used a pre-focused wide angle lens rapidly photographing. When Winogrand died, he left an immense archive of prints and undeveloped rolls.
Weegee (1899 -1968) was working largely in New York City as a photojournalist. He would follow the city’s emergency services, documenting their activity and then selling the photographs to New York tabloids. Weegee is now regarded as one of the pioneers of street photography.
