Black & White Ball

February 16 - 27, 2011

A juried exhibition featuring works in black and white.

The exhibit is inspired by Truman Capote’s 1966, Black and White Ball, held at the Grand Ballroom of New York City's Plaza Hotel.  It was considered to be "the most posh event, not just of the year, but also of the decade, and maybe even the century" To read more go to:

My Left Hand was originally exhibited in 1997 at the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery and at the National Museum of Photography in Brescia, Italy. Both exhibitions displayed 30, 4x5 inch contact prints from instant Polaroid negatives. These Polaroids were tests for shooting with large format camera, using my 8 x 10 inch negatives. Only three enlargements were produced. They are the only limited editions prints created from the 8 x 10 series. 

"The series was initially conceived through my inspiration to pursue three-dimensional sculptural forms with photography. The ability to contort my hands was inherited from my great grandfather, a circus contortionist in Chicago. The twisted hand seemed perfect for this sculptural exploration”.~ Greg Holman

“My Left Hand” photographs are limited edition archival silver bromide prints created in 2001 for Greg Holman's ten-year retrospective titled “Decade”.
