Eugene Richards Retrospective

Share:

The International Center of Photography of New York presents the first museum retrospective devoted to Eugene Richards’s nearly 50-year career. From September 27, 2018 through January 6, 2019.

Composed of over 140 photographs and short films—all created in Richards’s unflinching yet poetic style—the show is organized thematically, rather than by project, offering an in-depth look at the recurring subject matter of his career. Focusing on birth, death, poverty, prejudice, war, and terrorism, Richards illuminates aspects of American society that are more easily, or more comfortably, ignored. The show confronts difficult subjects with an impassioned honesty that can be challenging, lyrical, beautiful, and melancholy.

His work is informed by the subjective approach of Robert Frank and the social commitment of W. Eugene Smith. According to Richards, “The responsibility of the photographer is to respect people while—most importantly—using your skills to reveal something true about their lives and their humanity.
