Peter Sekaer ... In Context
Lumière
Featuring work by: Peter Sekaer

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 14, to Sat, Oct 9 2010

Featuring the exceptional photography of Peter Sekaer in the context of other notable artists of the period.

Including: Berenice Abbott, Arnold Newman, Alexander Rodchenko, Dorothea Lange, John Gutmann and Rondal Partridge.

Sekaer, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1901, immigrated to the United States in 1918. After successfully operating a printing business in New York City producing posters, advertisements and window displays, he enrolled in the Art Students League in 1929 to study painting.

By 1934 Sekaer had left painting behind to study photography with Berenice Abbott. Through his friendship with Walker Evans he secured contracts from 1936 to 1943 to work on assignment as a photographer for various government agencies.

“Sekaer’s photographs show an outsider’s objectivity and detachment coupled with an insider’s commitment and concern for the subject.” - Julian Cox, Curator of the High Museum of Art’s exhibition: Signs of Life, Photographs by Peter Sekaer.
