Barbara Crane’s “Private Views”

Aperture’s Barbara Crane's new Spring catalog is out (pdf), and at first blush, I’m looking forward to seeing Barbara Crane’s Private Views which will be released in conjunction with an exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, TX.

“Armed with a Super Speed Graphic camera and Polaroid film, Crane waded in close to the revelers and focused on capturing the details of clothing and hairstyles, but most importantly, gesture. The images are tightly cropped and terrifically alive, viscerally bringing us into the crush of people eating, drinking, and enjoying the crowd dynamic—an incredible inventory of private gestures performed in public spaces.”
