ADAM FUSS DAGUERREOTYPES & THE WOMB OF THE PRE-RAPHAELITE IMAGINATION
SEPTEMBER 28 — DECEMBER 2, 2016
Over three decades, British born, New York-based photographer Adam Fuss has created a body of work that combines photographic techniques of the past with contemporary materials. His pinhole photographs and cameraless photograms, executed with technical rigor in a variety of media, have dealt with temporality, memory, regeneration, and death. This exhibition presents a remarkable suite of Fuss’s large-scale daguerreotypes that deepens his exploration into these themes. These are the largest daguerreotypes ever made. Prefacing the exhibition is Fuss’s selection of 19th-century daguerreotypes of nudes and post-mortem studies.
