Classic Portrait Photography

Share:

Foam Amsterdam shows unseen works from US American studio photographer Mike Disfarmer.

Between 1915 and 1959, American studio photographer Mike Disfarmer (1884–1959) made portraits of the residents of Heber Springs, a small town in rural Arkansas. Only after his death did his work become known internationally and regarded as a typical example of classic American portrait photography. With “Disfarmer – The Vintage Prints,” Foam is staging a major retrospective, with 182 vintage photographs, including a number of 8 x 10 inch prints that have never been exhibited before.

Disfarmer’s way of working was straightforward. He positioned his models directly in front of the camera, against a simple background, and had them look right into the lens. The effect is a focus on the individual without any distraction from the surroundings or props.
