Henry Wessel has worked as a photographer for nearly thirty years. He first garnered widespread critical attention during the early 1970s in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, and as one of the young photographers included in the New Topographics exhibition at the International Museum of Photography in Rochester, New York. Since then, Wessel has documented his surroundings, finding a sense of lyrical beauty in the everyday. His “keen-eyed observations share the spontaneity and honesty of snapshots, but are inflected with his own wry humor.”
The exhibition is presented in partnership with Robert Mann Gallery, where a complimentary Henry Wessel exhibition will be on view from January 11 to February 10.
