An exhibition of new work by Nicholas Nixon is currently on view at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. It is Nixon’s fourteenth solo exhibition at the gallery. Comprised of approximately thirty works dating solely from 2012 and 2013, this is Nixon’s first exhibition to interweave photographs made both in black-and-white and color.
Known for penetrating portraits of couples, the ill and elderly, and an ongoing annual portrait (begun in 1975) of his wife and her three sisters, Nixon is a master of rich, telling detail. His new work is comprised of intimate self-portraits with his wife, Bebe, and landscape views made in France and his neighborhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This exhibit runs through July 27, 2013. – courtesy Fraenkel Gallery.
