Gary Tatintsian Gallery is pleased to present a personal online exhibition by Helmar Lerski, an avant-garde photographer of the 20th century.

About

The organization of light was always the main part of his artistic method. Lerski managed to reverse the traditional notion of portrait art without applying any of supernatural technical devices. His technical know-how was limited to working with a large format camera, mirrors and contact prints. It was all about the concept, the approach of an artist to the portrait execution.

"Light is a proof that a photographer can create freely, following his mind's eye, like a painter, designer, or sculptor". – Helmar Lerski

This collection of 88 vintage prints – a visual material for the book 'Der Mensch - Mein Brude' (1958) includes works from five significant series: ‘Lerski Pictures’, ‘Everyday Faces’, ‘Arabs and Jews’, ‘Metamorphosis Through Light’ and ‘Hands’.
