Philip Trager: Photographing Ina
Friday, March 25 through Sunday, May 22, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 24, 2016 from 5pm to 7pm;
Conversation between artist Philip Trager ’56 and Jane A. Seney Professor of Greek, Professor and Chair of Classical Studies Andrew Szegedy-Maszak at 5:30pm.
Following a retrospective exhibition in 2006 of his internationally renowned images of architecture and of contemporary dancers, Philip Trager ’56 responded to the opportunities presented by digital photography and created a new series of images, culminating in the book Photographing Ina, which will be published by Steidl Press in 2016. This exhibition reveals Mr. Trager’s first series in color photography—an unexpected and tender meditation on the act of photographing, on perception, color, and light.
