Witness raw captures from cities across the globe, at this all-new exhibit in Atlanta
The High Museum of Art is the epicenter for arts and culture in the A, continuously boasting a stellar line-up of exhibitions and events, with their newest addition being no exception.
Evelyn Hofer: Eyes on the City is a collection of photos taken by the American photographer, renowned for her innovation and rawness within the artform. Born in Germany back in 1922, and passing away in 2009, her career spanned five decades, with the majority of her life spent in New York City.
With NYC in her blood, the city and the lives exposed to city-life had an incredible influence on the artist, and this exhibition will explore this fascination, displaying an unbeatable selection of work devoted to European and American cities.
The majority of her released photobooks where published in the 1960’s, and each was dedicated to different cities, including Florence, London, New York, Washington, DC, and Dublin. She even did an entire book on the country of Spain.
Eyes on the City will feature more than one hundred vintage prints in both black and white and color, with this all-new addition to ATL’s unmissable exhibits being Hofer’s first major museum public exhibition in the U.S. in over fifty years.
The beautiful photographs encapsulate cities during the post-WWII transformations and developments, felt and seen all over the world. From structural and social concepts, to economic and political statements, this powerful exhibit is not to be missed.
You can catch Evelyn Hofer: Eyes on the City at the High Museum of Art, on display until August 13, 2023.
