Works by Charles H. Traub

Chicago, 1976 Charles H. Traub... Chicago, 1976 (Vintage gelatin silver print). From Works by Charles H. Traub, September 22 - December 2, 2006 at Gitterman Gallery in New York, NY. "...Gitterman Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of vintage black and white street photographs from the 1970s by Charles H. Traub (b.1945). The exhibition is concurrent with the release of the book Charles H. Traub (Gitterman Gallery, 2006) which includes 40 pages, 33 images, and an essay by Marvin Heiferman. Charles H. Traub once used a lens shade one size too small for his square-format camera. The vignetting caused by the mistake emphasized the intimate perspective of the photographer’s vision. The square format and proximity to his subjects charged his images with an immediacy that celebrated the character of the times."
