In 1983, Baldwin Lee left his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, and set off on a road trip through the American South. He did not know what his subject would be, but during the trip, he found himself drawn to photographing Black Americans at home, at work and at play, in the street and amid nature. Over the next seven years, he made numerous road trips to the South to continue his work.
Nearly 40 years after Lee’s initial 2,000-mile road trip, the first solo exhibition of his work in New York will be on view at the gallery from September 22nd through November 12th. The exhibition Baldwin Lee coincides with the publication of a new monograph of his work by Hunters Point Press in New York.
The exhibition, Baldwin Lee, will be on view from September 22nd extended to November 22nd, 2022 at Howard Greenberg Gallery, 41 East 57th Street, Suite 801, NYC. An Opening Reception will be held on September 22nd from 6-8pm.
Save the date for Baldwin Lee in conversation with Imani Perry to celebrate the launch of Baldwin Lee. The Event will take place on Monday, September 26th at 6:00pm at Rizzoli Bookstore, 1133 Broadway, NYC.
