Thirty Years of Women
February 7 – April 11, 2020

Nan Goldin, Teri and Patrick on Their Wedding Night, 1987

Thirty Years of Women, curated by gallery founder Jane Jackson and current owner Anna Walker Skillman, draws from Jackson Fine Art’s thirty-year history of showing the most distinguished voices in 20th and 21st century photography. Jackson and Skillman have selected works illustrative of the gallery’s evolving vision and the strong relationships that have defined Jackson Fine Art through the years.

In the viewing room, Skillman looks forward with a selection of photographs from some of the most important artists of our contemporary moment.

Alex Prager: Francine, 2011 / Elton John AIDS Foundation Photography Portfolio II

Flor Garduño, Rapto, Switzerland, 2009

Holly Andres, River Road: Milepost 13 , 2015

Holly Andres uses photography to examine the complexities of childhood, the fleeting nature of memory, and female introspection. Typically Holly Andres’ photography relies on a tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle, Istanbul, Turkey and Portland Oregon where she lives and works. Holly Andres’ photography has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Time, Art in America, Artforum, Exit Magazine, Art News, Modern Painters, Oprah Magazine, Elle Magazine, W, The LA Times, Glamour, Blink and Art Ltd

 

Jocelyn Lee, Jenna and the Fallen Apples, 2016

Hellen van Meene, Untitled #470, 2015

Julie Blackmon, Chaise, 2013

Lillian Bassman, Harper’s Bazaar, Dovima, 1954

Lillian Bassman was born in Brooklyn, New York. She worked as a textile designer and fashion illustrator before working at Harper’s Bazaar in 1946. In 1949, she photographed her first Paris couture collection, which lead to Lillian Bassman’s distinguished career photographing the foremost models of her day. Renowned for her innovative work in the darkroom, Lillian Bassman experimented by printing through unique materials, burning certain areas, or bleaching sections of the photograph to create images that appeared to be a cross between a watercolor and a photograph.

 

Andrea Torres Balaguer, Carmine, 2018

Loretta Lux, The Book, 2003

Helen Levitt, NY, 1972

Sally Mann, Sheet Changing Day, 1994

Photographer Sally Mann has become synonymous with the American South, beloved for capturing its landscapes and people alike with her camera. Born and still residing in Lexington, Virginia, Sally Mann’s photography – especially intimate portraits of her family – has attracted controversy but always pushes the art world’s envelope, informing other young photographers’ eyes. Sally Mann explored many aspects of the photographic medium throughout the 1970s, however her work exploring everyday elements of childhood remains some of her most famous and moving photography work.

 

Mona Kuhn, Clara, 2004

Debbie Fleming Caffery, “Polly Joseph,” June, Louisiana, 1985

Meghann Riepenhoff, Littoral Drift Nearshore #554 (Point White Beach, Bainbridge Island, WA 05.26.17, Five Waves and Sea Foam), 2017
