Doris Ulmann, Girl with Embroidery Hoop, n.d., Silver Gelatin Print, Collection of Jessica Lange
Doris Ulmann was a native New Yorker who traveled in the American South during the 1920s – 30s making dignified portraits of the people of Appalachia to the Sea Islands of South Carolina and points in between. Her work is closely associated with the pictorialist and the social realism movements of the early 20th century. She photographed with a large, cumbersome camera making lush and dreamy portraits of craftsman, musicians and other trades persons throughout the South. This exhibition will feature photographs loaned from Roger Ogden, A Gallery for Fine Photography and Jessica Lange.
