Under the Influence: The Photographic Homage July 14 — September 2, 2006

If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, then photographers are some of the most accomplished adulators. Throughout history, photographers have payed homage to those before them. The 1980/90s was one of the richest time periods for such work, as an influx of photographers made pieces which commented on art history. From Cindy Sherman’s re-creation of movie stills, to Sherry Levine’s direct copies of famous historical photographs, to Mark Klett walking in the footsteps of 19th c. survey photographers, to Andres Serrano’s bow to Edward Curtis, photographers have been some of the most prolific artists paying homage to their own.

Under the Influence brings together photographers who unabashedly pay respect to specific images or artists. From Michael Kenna’s nod to Charles Sheeler, Annie Leibovitz’s wink to Lewis Hine’s mechanic, Clark & Pougnaud’s adoration of Edward Hopper, Shelby Lee Adams and Gordon Park’s re-staging of The American Gothic, and Joel-Peter Witkin, whose entire body of work is a tribute to artists throughout art history, photographers have been at the forefront of acknowledgment, paying respect to those before them.
