Join Aperture and the Whitney Museum of American Art for a conversation between Judy Glickman Lauder, Adam D. Weinberg and Anjuli Lebowitz celebrating Presence: The Photography Collection of Judy Glickman Lauder (Aperture, 2022). The conversation will be followed by a book signing and reception.
Presence is a thrilling immersion into the personal collection of Judy Glickman Lauder. Nearly 160 images by some 80 photographers, selected from Judy Glickman Lauder’s collection of over 650 prints, explores the “presence” of the human spirit. This stunningly designed album showcases the imagery of beloved and influential photographers of the twentieth century, such as Berenice Abbott, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Imogen Cunningham, Nan Goldin, Susan Meiselas, Gordon Parks, Sebastião Salgado, Weegee, and James Van Der Zee. Spanning Pictorialism, portraiture, and fashion to documentary and photojournalism, and featuring iconic figures from art, politics, entertainment, and social justice, Presence: The Photography Collection of Judy Glickman Lauder celebrates photography’s ability to capture the human experience.
Published by Aperture in partnership with the Portland Museum of Art, Maine, this book accompanies an exhibition drawn from the Judy Glickman Lauder Collection at the PMA, to which the Collection has been gifted.
