Norman Hall and The Photography Year Book celebrated established and emerging photographers from 1954 to 1963. The exhibition, Mid-Century American: Vintage Photographs From the International Photography Year Book, at Keith de Lellis Gallery, features images from Hall’s collection.
As the Picture Editor for The Times, Hall chose photographers and their photographs for their ability to “record the truth,” with a focus on human interest. The images range from fashion shoot outtakes to LIFE magazine assignments and are a true glimpse into the mid-century mindset of America during those years. In Hall’s own words, “….it can be said with some certainty that the camera does not lie.”
The exhibit will feature images from such well-known photographers as Harold Feinstein, Ansel Adams, Bob Hollingsworth, Paul Caponigro, Arthur Leipzig, Jules Aarons, Ruth Bernard, Marguerite Johnson, Arthur Rothstein, Leonard McCombe, Pirkle Jones, Walter Rosenblum, Louis Stettner, Don Worth, Peter Basch, John Bryson, Clemens Kalischer, Harold Zegart, Sanford H. Roth, Gerard Oppenheimer, and Martin D. Koehler.
Mid-Century American: Vintage Photographs From the International Photography Year Book will be on view through June 15, 2018 at Keith de Lellis Gallery, 41 East 57th Street, Suite 703, NYC
