I spent Saturday in Washington D.C. visiting friends and stopped by the National Gallery of Art to see the exhibit, The Serial Portrait: Photography and Identity in the Last One Hundred Years. It's a small, but very beautiful exhibit of featuring 20 photographers who work with multiple portraits of the same person - either spouses, muses, or themselves. This assessment of the show, by Philip Kennicott for The Washington Post, is especially well put. The exhibit is up through Dec. 31st.
A few of my favorites photos from the exhibit are below:
|Francesca Woodman, Untitled|
|Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1918|
|Ann Hamilton, body object series #14, megaphone, 1986|
