Where is my American Splendour in a world that is cloudy and gray?

This juried exhibition calls for photography that captures the beauty and splendor of the American spirit.  Despite the clouds that hang overhead, despite our present times of discomfort and wounded spirit, how can we look to photography as a release, pause, or escape? How can photography provide a sense of optimism towards the diversity of the American lansdscape, its people, cities, towns, families, architecture and natural beauty? How can photography lift us up?  American Splendour is a call for new photography that gives us hope towards something better.


Uncovered

Photographs by Ken Regan

2019
ilon Art Gallery
204 West 123rd Street, Harlem NY

Fetauring previously unseen or rarely seen photographs from the legendary lensman Ken Regan, focusing on historical and cultural happenings throughout the turbulent 1960s that he captured on film.

The current show covers the wide range of his work — music, movies, sports, fashion, and political events — from 1960-1969. In addition to documenting the storied pop culture scene of that decade, Regan was a photojournalist who chronicled many of the most important newsmakers of the era.

Juxtaposed with his photos of Johnny Carson and Sammy Davis, Jr. performing together, Truman Capote, and other celebrities are stark images of the Black Panthers and of police dealing with a protest, the Apollo 11 Astronauts in a parade with New York City Mayor Lindsay in January 1969, Robert F. Kennedy with his sons at the Bronx Zoo in 1968, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March to the UN in April 1967.
