Russell Lee: A Documentarian’s Personal Kodachromes November 1, 2019 – Spring 2021

Remembered as one of the New Deal’s Farm Security Administration’s trio of great photographers alongside Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee’s legacy has up to now rested largely on his iconic black & white photographs of rural America. Presenting 67 enlarged color prints of shots Lee took during trips in the States, Canada, Norway and Mexico in the 1950s and 60s, the exhibition offered an alternative body of work that nonetheless reveals Lee’s enduring eye for the ‘candid, and his mastery of detail, framing and moment.

Curators: Leora Maltz-Leca and Benedict Leca with J. B. Colson
