NYC Photography Exhibitions On View Now
“Elisabeth Hase: An Independent Vision” at Robert Mann Gallery
Robert Mann Gallery presents “Elisabeth Hase: An Independent Vision” on view from March 31 to May 7, 2016.
"An Independent Vision" introduces the work of Elisabeth Hase, a historic photographer largely unknown outside of Germany. Hase was capturing images during the transition from the Weimar Republic to the Third Reich and through post-WWII Germany with a uniquely independent point of view that was made possible by the establishment of her own studio and offer critiques and commentary following her own artistic sensibilities.
Hase's self-portraits were created with a large degree of role-playing. In many, she assumes a persona and plays out a scene in front of the camera. These works critique gender roles and explore personal identity. Hase also made images of still lives, street scenes and reportage. "An Independent Vision" is Hase's first exhibition outside of Germany. To view the full article click here.
