Evelyn Hofer at The Photographers' Gallery will be the first UK solo exhibition of the German-American photographer Evelyn Hofer (1922-2009).
On display will be Hofer’s characteristically considered, large-format portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, still lifes and domestic interiors, many of which demonstrate her preference for the complex colour dye transfer process.
New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer described Hofer as ‘the most famous unknown photographer in America’. A description that still rings true today.
From black and white portraits in London and Wales to the vibrant colour of street and park life in New York and Washington, Hofer shot in colour and black and white throughout her career, depending on which she thought right for her subjects. With a keen sense of class structure, her portraits give equal measure to her subjects; from a waitress at the Garrick Club in London and gravediggers in Dublin, to the uniformed Joint Chiefs in Washington's corridors of power.Tickets: £6.50 (Concession: £4.00 )
