Arcana Hosts A Book Signing & Discussion With Anthony Hernandez
October 8, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Since the early 1970s, when he began photographing on the streets of his native Los Angeles, Anthony Hernandez has consistently pushed his practice into uncharted territory. Challenging himself by adopting new formats and subject matter, moving from black and white to color, from 35mm to large-format cameras, and from the human figure to landscapes to abstracted detail, he has produced an unusually varied body of work united by its arresting beauty and subtle engagement with social issues. At first largely unaware of the formal traditions of the medium, Hernandez developed his own style of street photography, one uniquely attuned to the desolate allure and sprawling expanses of LA.
Published in conjunction with the photographer’s major career-spanning retrospective at SFMoMA, Anthony Hernandez is a beautifully designed and printed hardbound catalogue featuring an introduction by Robert Adams, texts by Erin O’Toole, Ralph Rugoff, Lewis Baltz, and Anthony Hernandez, and an extensive selection of images – including many that have until now never been exhibited or published. It represents the full range and breadth of Hernandez’ work tracing his evolution as well as highlighting continuities across his practice.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
