Amid all of the sad news about Szarkowski and Hartwell, some might have missed the news that the terrific photographer (and Minnesotan) JoAnn Verburg’s retrospective opened earlier this week at MoMA. Fortunately today’s NY Times has a big profile of JoAnn. There is also an audio slideshow by Philip Gefter.
I recently mentioned my belief that there are book photographers and wall photographers. JoAnn is certainly of the latter group. For this reason, I’m waiting to write more about her work until it comes to the Walker Art Center in Januray. But you can read what I wrote about JoAnn last October here.
