Richard Gordon, Ventnor, 1975

As usual , the Gitterman Gallery highlights a photographer that compels the viewer to notice and conveys an honest view of the world around him.

Taken primarily in New York City and along the West Coast, Gordon’s images examine the role of photography and its relationship with reality. Much of the work appears in Gordon’s 1978 book Meta Photographs and as the title suggests they are often photographs about photography. Gordon’s images are a part of an early discourse about how society has used photography as a means of representation. Though he is theorizing about the medium, his images often are witty, even humorous, while formally exploring the exotic of the everyday.
