Public Faces Private Spaces (Press Release)
The Getty presents Public Faces/Private Spaces: Recent Acquisitions, at the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Center, October 10, 2006-February 4, 2007. The exhibition features the works of four accomplished American photographers—Donald Blumberg (born 1935), Bill Owens (born 1938), Mary Ellen Mark (born 1940), and Anthony Hernandez (born 1947)—whose black-and-white pictures focus on different communities in America, ranging from the urban public to the suburban private. In their images of churchgoers and street kids, urban commuters and suburbanites, the four photographers explore a wide spectrum of the social landscape, offering glimpses of the everyday lives of ordinary Americans.
