THE REFLECTED EYE: FASHION THROUGH THE LENS OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER
A virtual exhibit in two parts sponsored by the Port Washington Public Library
Curated by Patty Sicular and Vanessa Nastro
Part I Premieres April 1, 2021 at www.PWPL.org/ReflectedEye
The Port Washington Public Library has brought together some of fashion photography’s most iconic and recognized artists of the 20th and 21st century in a new immersive virtual gallery presentation. This two-part virtual exhibit, curated by Patty and Vanessa Nastro, will look at fashion’s artistic impact through the lens of photographers such as Erwin Blumenfeld, Melvin Sokolsky, Neal Barr, William , Alexi Lubomirski, Anthony Barboza, Chen Man, and many more. Part exhibit, part visual and oral history, part documentary, these artists, representing 16 countries and covering more than 90 years of photographic retrospection, will reveal the stories behind their photographs in their own words. With video commentary by fashion curators, historians, and editors, The Reflected Eye turns our attention to the mystery on the other side of the lens, the photographer.
