                  "Face It ll"

The Photographic Portrait

April 04, 2014 - August 11, 2014

"Face It II" comprises twenty photographs from the Museum's collection by such artists as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Diane Arbus, Imogen Cunningham, Judy Dater and Minor White.

"In place of seeking a strict reportage of a subject’s features, or outright flattery, "Face It II" bids us look for the affective moment, the human interest, and the metaphorical associations inherent in portraits of persons known or anonymous. "

"When confronted with figures loosed from the conventions of traditional portraiture, we, as viewers, are prompted to be active rather than passive in our experience of the images.

 The intimacy that occurs in such an encounter with the informal or ambiguous conjures in us a psychology of looking."


George Livia, 1996
Judy Dater, American, 1941-

    I'm hoping I can make this meetup. Money is very tight and I'm waiting for some that a friend owes me. Will have to figure that out closer to the date. That's the only reason I'd change my rsvp.

    Considering Pasadena City College and the Art Center both have great photo schools its a wonder Pasadena is so under utilized for images . Most people never get past City Hall. I did most of my class projects in Pasadena,, So for me this will be like going home...

    I'm still working on this ,, It's in the planning stages .
