William Albert Allard: Five Decades

William Albert Allard: Five Decades at Steven Kasher Gallery. "...William Albert Allard’s work has moved millions in the pages of National Geographic for nearly five decades. He is the colorist and dramatist that National Geographic photographers esteem the most as a pioneer and peerless exemplar of natural, expressive color in magazine photography. Allard is Manet with Kodachrome, wielding slashing strokes of blood red and bullhide black. Allard is Hemingway with a Leica, crafting complex tales of matadors and cowboys, of fishermen and farmers. His characters struggle, with dignity and grace. They attend to the ceremony of their own survival, alone, but in touch with sympathetic others. William Albert Allard could be the greatest photographer you’ve never heard of."
