Lot Details

Spectacular vintage 1986 dye transfer print. Slight yellowing in the margins, otherwise in superb condition.

Mitch Epstein’s photographic work, which he has complemented with sporadic incursions into film and video art, is partly responsible for the New Color movement in the U.S. In 1972, Epstein began making pictures as a student at Cooper Union in New York. He quickly subverted the tradition of 35 mm photography by using color at a time when it was considered a tacky tool of advertising. In the wake of William Eggleston, Epstein was instrumental in redefining color photography as art. His individual pictures are known for their layering of details and meaning within a both elegant and complex composition. Epstein has exhibited in museums and galleries around the world and his work features in many important collections worldwide.
