On Saturday February 14, the exhibition entitled “The Photographs of Homer Page: The Guggenheim Year, New York, 1949-50” opens at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
Homer Page used a 1949-50 Guggenheim fellowship to photograph New York City. Page captured this specific time and place with his unique artistic vision that was both “gritty and lyrical.”
Keith Davis, Curator of Photography at Nelson-Atkins, asked Malcolm Grear Designers to design the book that accompanies the exhibition. This 144 page cloth-covered book includes 100 tritone photographs. MGD has previously collaborated with Davis on numerous books for the Hallmark Photographic Collection, including his important series The Origins of American Photography.
For more information on the exhibition, please visit the Nelson-Atkins Museum. Read a review of the book by the Wall Street Journal.
