Camerawork: Arnold Crane

CAMERA WORK is pleased to present an exhibition of outstanding photographer-portraits by the American photographer Arnold Crane. The show will open on July 16 and will continue through September 3. The photographs will be complemented with works by the portrayed artists from the comprehensive archive of CAMERA WORK.

Arnold Crane enjoyed unparalleled access to the most famous photographers of our time. He used his camera to capture the giants of 20th century photography – Man Ray, Walker Evans, Ansel Adams, Bill Brandt, Brassai, Edward Steichen and many others – in the very intimate settings of their homes, streets and studios. Over a period of more than two decades, Crane created a body of artistic work of immeasurable value and historic importance. Whether sitting in a car with Paul Strand, catching Imogen Cunningham in her kitchen or accompanying Ansel Adams on a Point Lobos shoot, Crane always managed to produce sensitive photographs that both revealed and revered his subjects.
