PHOTOGRAPHY: "Mistaken Identities" at the Katonah Museum of Art
Published on .
Through June 11 at the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, N.Y.: "Mistaken Identities: W. M. Hunt's Collection of Snapshots."
As W. M. Hunt, co-founder of New York's Hasted Hunt Gallery (www.hastedhunt.com) explains, 30 years ago he began "a collecting odyssey with the purchase of a single anonymous photograph in a Cambridge, Mass., shop. That image of a faceless figurine launched me on a focused quest for photographs of people whose eyes were closed, veiled, averted or hidden." Today, this collection of more than 1,200 images includes works by Irving Penn, Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe and John K. Hillers. "Mistaken Identities," however, features some 120 vernacular snapshots, never before exhibited, that Hunt collected at flea markets and online. Vernacular it may be, but the image that opens this PDF could be a study for Magritte's "The Lovers." See www.katonahmuseum.org for more.
