Pingry is proud to present this museum quality exhibition with works by international artists who had shaped and defined modern photography. Lucien Clergue, close friend of Pablo Picasso, received the highest honor bestowed by the French Ministry of Culture as a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur in 2003, and was featured in a solo show at the MoMA. Harold Feinstein helped define the “New York School” of photography and Donna Ferrato ignited a national discussion about sexual violence and women’s rights. Surrealist photographer Ralph Gibson is included in important collections including the MoMA, the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, and the International Center for Creative Photography. Alen MacWeeney’s photographs are in permanent collections at the MoMA, the MET, the Philadephia Musueum of Art, and the Art Institure of Chicago, to name a few. Mary Ellen Mark is recognized as one of the most respected and influential photographers of her generation. She has published 18 books and published photo-essays and portraits in LIFE, New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. She has received worldwide attention for her work, which is included in over 50 major museum collections.
