Presenting more than 100 photographs drawn from the collection of Christopher Hyland, a noted textile and interior designer and publisher of the iPad magazine HYLAND, this special exhibition features works by noted American and European photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Shelby Lee Adams, Horst P. Horst, Kenro Izu, André Kertész, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Brian Oglesbee, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, John Szarkowski, and Edward Weston. Works from Hyland’s collection have been featured at the New Britain Museum of American Art, CT (2009), and the American Museum, Bath, England, during the 2012 Olympics.
"In photography,” notes Hyland, in a catalog published for the American Museum exhibition, “I seek poetry, panache and beauty. I am also looking for something new, something remarkable, something transformational. By way of your eyes, your mind computes where the subject is placed in negative or positive space, the use of light and dark, and whether the resulting image speaks to the ages. If a photograph resonates with you, it is truly something wonderful – a bit of the divine in the resulting emotions you experience as a viewer." Unique to the exhibition are works by Bill Armstrong that Hyland commissioned as well as the collector’s own exploration into digital portraiture.
This exhibition is made possible by the Coeta and Donald Barker Special Exhibitions Endowment, The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, and JSMA members.
