Portraits of the 20th Century

March 15 – June 28, 2014

A collection of iconic and rarely seen portraits of visionaries, leaders, writers, actors, artists, musicians and notable personalities from the 20th Century.

Opening Reception
Saturday March 15
5:00 - 7:00 PM

To look upon someone extraordinary, who has achieved greatness against great odds. To be moved by an image of one who has touched upon the lives of thousands. To seek knowledge and understanding. To find inspiration.

These are the experiences we seek when confronted by a great portrait. The figures captured in this exhibition were extraordinary, exuding character and living lives of triumph and disaster. The photographers who captured their essence, by necessity required a technical prowess but more importantly possess depth, empathy and pursue a true understanding of the human condition.

Portraits are certainly the great power in photography. They are the great confluence of documentary and artistry. Our natural voyeuristic condition draws us in and the medium allows us to feel an element of intimacy. A great portrait will explore the nuances of character and in some rare cases a portrait will truly capture an emotion. As viewers we are given license to share that feeling, to be drawn in, to be moved and to walk away inspired.

The Exhibition will include works by...
