This event has ended.

Higher Pictures is pleased to announce an exhibition of vintage works by Alfred Gescheidt. The exhibition will include a selection of rare photographs ranging in date from 1949 through 1979. Once ubiquitous, through magazines, advertising, posters, postcards, album covers, book covers, and so forth, these maverick images have fallen largely out of sight in the last twenty years, but now return to view with both an intriguing sense of strangeness and a curious familiarity. This exhibition brings back to the fore a fascinating dimension of the postwar eraʼs print media, popular culture, and visual sensibility, as well as a most vivid artistic personality– a photographer once described by the former New York Times photo editor John Durniak as “the Charlie Chaplin of the camera.”
