Luke Swank - Vernacular Architecture Through a Modernist Eye
Sep 13-Nov 21
L. Parker Stephenson Photographs is pleased to present a selection of vintage photographs from the 1930s and early 1940s of rural architecture and urban scenes by American photographer Luke Swank (1890-1944). This is the first solo exhibition of Swanks work in New York since 1934 at Delphic Studios. At the time, Swanks modernist images, taken mostly in his native Pennsylvania, were heralded by fellow photographers, curators, and art critics alike and were widely exhibited in museums and galleries on both the East and the West Coasts. However, due to his early death and a paucity of material in public hands, Swanks contributions to the field were overlooked for more than six decades.
