Russell Lee: A Documentarian’s Personal Kodachromes
A stalwart of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Farm Security Administration (FSA) photographic documentation project of the 1930s, Russell Lee’s legacy has up to now rested largely on his iconic black & white photographs of rural America. Presenting material heretofore never exhibited publicly, the exhibition comprises a body of enlarged color kodachromes taken by Lee during trips to Mexico and Norway during the 1950s and 60s, offering up the late, personal visions in rich color of an artist known for his haunting documentary photographs.
