Photographs by Philip Trager
March 24, 2017 - April 29, 2017
ilon Art Gallery
204 West 123rd Street, Harlem NY 10027
In Photographing Ina, Philip Trager, renowned for his black-and-white images, embraces color for the first time. His images are as much about the act of photographing, perception, color and light, as they are about his subject, his wife Ina, whose presence is a constant and unifying motif.
Trager photographed his wife on only two occasions. This exhibition comprises images from these contrasting bodies of work: black-and-white photographs made after 25 years together; and color photographs made between 2006 and 2011, after 50 years together. These intimate, openly theatrical images, made in concentrated sessions rather than as an ongoing diary, embody an enduring love and shared passion for art.
This exhibition runs from March 24, 2017 thru May 29, 2017. ilon Art Gallery is open on Tuesdays from 3-7pm, most Saturdays from 2-5 or by appointment. Please check website, call or email for additional opening days and events.
