Richard Gordon

Richard Gordon at Gitterman Gallery. " exhibition of vintage black and white photographs from the 1970’s by Richard Gordon. Taken primarily in New York City and along the West Coast, Gordon’s images examine the role of photography and its relationship with reality. Much of the work appears in Gordon’s 1978 book Meta Photographs and as the title suggests they are often photographs about photography. Gordon’s images are a part of an early discourse about how society has used photography as a means of representation. Though he is theorizing about the medium, his images often are witty, even humorous, while formally exploring the exotic of the everyday."
