“Myself When I Am Real, an exhibition featuring renowned artist Barkley L. Hendricks’ photographic work, is now on view at Jack Shainman Gallery through June 17. The exhibition includes both vintage prints and works produced from the artist’s archive, which the Estate has been cataloging since his passing, and most of which have never been seen publicly. Presented together, these works illustrate the singular way Hendricks perceived the world.
“Taking inspiration from Walker Evans, one of his mentors at Yale, Hendricks documented his America, rarely going out in public without a camera around his neck. Through his lens, Hendricks captured his immediate environment, framing moments of humor, beauty, and individual style in often playful compositions. Demonstrating his distinct visual sensibility, the work also shows a deep interest in the creative potential of the medium.”
