Henry Horenstein: Racing Days
April 9 – June 13, 2015
Reception & Lecture / booksigning: Thursday, April 9, 6–9PM
Racing Days presents black and white photographs of the thoroughbred racetracks across the United States, a project Horenstein started in 1973. The images evoke the atmosphere of the tracks, and the myriad of characters big and small. Horenstein focused on the workouts, the backstretch activity, and the track action. He captured everyone from the grooms, clockers and trainers to vendors, jockeys and, above all, the bettors.

Arne Svenson The Workers
April 9 – May 30
Opening reception and book signing, Thursday, April 9th, 6-8 PM
In Arne Svenson’s fifth solo show with the gallery we will present his most recent series called The Workers. As a conceptual and thematic extension and bookend to The Neighbors, Svenson is no longer shooting from his studio, but is out in the world recording details of men engaged in manual labor. The same techniques and palette have been applied as The Neighbors, but unlike the private lives and leisure time spent in the interiors of luxury apartments, here Svenson seeks to examine the nuances of another form of human activity- manual toil with tools and machines. He continues to photograph through windows, but here refining his images with a almost microscopic scrutiny of individuals focused on careful work. Whereas in The Neighbors we see people napping, dining or staring at their digital devices, here we see hands, elbows, backs and shoulders in evident concentration on a physical activity.

Georg Koppmann, Wilhelm Weimar / Rafal Milach, Michal Luczak
HAMBURG MUSEUM, 19 June to 18 October 2015
Two photographers were commissioned by the state at the end of the 19th century to document the development of the city of Hamburg. Georg Koppmann was authorized by the Hamburg government to photograph changes in structures, streets and the harbor. 24 years later, a monument image archive was created by Wilhelm Weimar, assistant to Justus Brinckmann (1843–1915), founding director of the Hamburg Arts and Crafts Museum.
Quiet Peasants and Sturdy Fishermen? Northern Germany in Photography
ALTONAER MUSEUM, 19 June until 22 November 2015
When we hear “Northern Germany,” most of us spontaneously describe a certain image. Our collective imagination of what landscapes look like is usually derived from pictures we have seen. But what about that typical image of Northern Germany we all seem to have in mind? How is it generated and what is the role of photography in that process? The extensive collection of historical photographs at the Altonaer Museum can serve as source material for researching these questions, as was done by Agnieszka Rayss from Sputnik Photo. Her photo series show how museums construct realities with their collections and how the collections leave their imprint on the perception of a landscape.

William Eggleston, American Color
March 14th to June 28th
William Eggleston is one of the most important artists in the history of photography. His vibrant and most famous images depict day-to-day life in small cities and suburbs of the American south, constructing an inventory of American culture in the 1960s and ‘70s. Eggleston opened new ground for photography by combining a focus on the symbols of modernization (roads, cars, supermarkets, billboards, shopping malls, parking lots, fashion), a particular use of color saturation and a diaristic approach while documenting friends, family members and anonymous characters.
William Eggleston, American Color is one of the biggest exhibitions ever done on the photographer and will bring to Brazil for the first time an extensive selection of works from 1960s and ‘70s, considered to be Eggleston’s golden years. One of the rooms will feature many of the photos included in the legendary 1976 exhibition at MoMA. Two other rooms will present the famous portfolio Los Alamos, which resulted from a series of road trips around the Mississippi Delta and all the way to California from 1965 to 1974.
