Yesterday afternoon the award-winning photographer, John Rosenthal, visited Through This Lens gallery. Mr. Rosenthal has loaned us a portfolio containing 48 of his signed black and white prints. The images in the portfolio represent what Mr. Rosenthal calls his "greatest hits" - photographs, many of them shot in Manhattan and several areas of North Carolina, that have become favorites with his followers. While his work is easy to look at, it is not simple. There are many references to classical art, and the influence of photographic masters on his work is clear. You might just fall in love at first sight when you see them for yourself.
Alternate signed and numbered prints are available in sizes up to 22x33 inches on 24x36 inch paper - and in a few cases, even larger.
We plan to have an exhibition of Mr. Rosenthal's work in the coming months. In the mean time please visit Through This Lens, in downtown Durham, to see his greatest hits.
