These black-and-white images, most from the first half of the twentieth century, are remarkable in that they document and record the cultural milieu of the time, and are themselves artworks, of and by artists, created at a point when a dialogue about photography’s place in the world of art had just begun. In front of the lens, sitting for the camera, are artists including Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondrian, and Jackson Pollock. Behind the lens, creating the images, are celebrated photographers including Edward Steichen, Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Yousuf Karsh, and Imogene Cunningham.

You are invited to the solo exhibit,  The New Global Women – Anchored in Tradition, Navigating the Future. This will be a return engagement for Milwaukee photographer Larry D’Attilio, whom you will remember from his last Tamarack exhibit: The Soul of Vietnam, last July of 2012. Larry has returned to Vietnam, continuing his exploration of the complex world of young women emerging from highly evolved yet rigid social/spiritual traditions into modern, sophisticated, cosmopolitan career women. Larry himself has evolved his own media traditions to express this complexity. Through Larry’s new abstractions, the struggles, fears, aspirations, and tensions of these women become palpable to us in ways far beyond what is possible with the simple portrait. These are very large prints, and utterly arresting in their impact.
