Episode No. 21 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Mitch Epstein and curator Eric Paddock.
Epstein is one of America’s most prominent and most honored photographers. His work is in the collection of virtually every major museum in the world and has been exhibited recently at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris and at the Kunstmuseum Bonn. He was the winner of the 2011 Prix Pictet for his series “American Power,” and he was awarded the 2008 Berlin Prize in Arts and Letters by the American Academy in Berlin. His most recent work, an examination of the trees of New York City, is on view now at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. in Chelsea.
On the second segment, Denver Art Museum curator Eric Paddock and I discuss work by Epstein’s teacher, Garry Winogrand. Fifty photographs from Winogrand’s “Women are Beautiful” series are on view now at the Denver Art Museum.
