Kodachrome Memory: American Pictures 1972-1990
Shelburne Museum (Jan. 24 – May 25) “Kodachrome Memory: American Pictures 1972-1990” is the inaugural solo museum exhibition of the photography of Nathan Benn. Comprised of 67 evocative color photographs, the exhibition spans the two decades prior to the digital revolution, a sea change that created a surplus of images in everyday life. Florida-born Benn, formerly a staff photographer at National Geographic, focused his lens with ethnographic precision on the regional textures of an America, in Vermont and Florida, which for the most part, now exists only in memory or on film. The exhibition is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions and will open at Shelburne Museum’s Pizzagalli Center for Art & Education on January 24, 2015.
