The exhibition Anthony Hernandez: A Confusing Gaze comprises 114 works, offering a comprehensive overview of a prolific career spanning over 45 years to date. The selection traces the artist’s creative evolution as he moved from black-and-white to colour photography, from 35mm to large format cameras, and from human figures to landscapes and semi-abstract details. This gave rise to an unusually varied oeuvre which brings together formal depictions of beauty with subtle commentaries on social issues such as homelessness or urbanisation.
Anthony Hernandez (b. 1947) was born and raised in Los Angeles. As a self-taught photographer he never adhered to the medium’s traditional genres, but instead developed an entirely unique style of street photography – much of which was influenced by the characteristics of his home city.
