Judy Glickman Lauder-Presence
Presence is a thrilling immersion into the personal collection of photographer and humanitarian, Judy Glickman Lauder. Nearly 160 images by eighty photographers, selected from Judy Glickman Lauder's collection of over 650 prints, explore the idea of "presence" of the human spirit in photography. This stunningly designed album showcases the imagery of beloved and influential photographers of the twentieth century, such as Berenice Abbott, Richard Avedon, Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Imogen Cunningham, Nan Goldin, Susan Meiselas, Gordon Parks, Sebastio Salgado, Weegee, and James Van Der Zee. Spanning approaches in the twentieth century, from Pictorialism, portraiture, and fashion, to documentary and photojournalism, and featuring some of the iconic figures from the fields of art, politics, entertainment and social justice, Presence: The Photography Collection of Judy Glickman Lauder celebrates photography's ability to capture the human experience. Essays by Anjuli Lebowitz and Adam Weinberg provide historical and artistic context, while an autobiographical essay by Glickman Lauder tells the story of her collection. This book accompanies an exhibition drawn from the Judy Glickman Lauder Collection at the Portland Museum of Art (to whom the Collection has been gifted).
