When Color Was New – Julie Saul Gallery

Stephen Shore - New York City - New York City - NY - Sept-Oct 1972

An exciting group show of photographs from the 1970’s is showing at the Julie Saul Gallery in New York City. “When Color was New” includes 40 color prints from 20 photographers including Stephen Shore (above), John Pfahl and Joel Sternfeld (below). The exhibit is comprised of varied aesthetics from quick snapshots to thoroughly planned stills.

It seems bizarre now, but color photography was not initially accepted as an art form back then. The art world was, as usual, dragged kicking and screaming into the obvious.

John Pfahl - Altered Landscape - Falling Oranges - Lutz Florida

Joel Sternfeld - The Space Shuttle Columbia Lands at Kelly Air Force Base San Antonio Texas
