Barbara Crane: Private Views-Public Spaces

In addition to the huge retrospective she's got up at the Chicago Cultural Center right now, Barbara Crane also has a show opening tomorrow, Friday at Stephen Daiter Gallery. Titled, Private Views - Public Spaces, this show features Polaroids she shot at close quarters within crowds of people in the early 1980's. She captures many intimate moments and gestures. And even though they're at close range, many of the subjects remain anonymous due to how her camera mostly captures people's torsos. It's a really interesting way to photograph people. There'll also be images from many of her other photo series.

The opening reception is Friday, October 16th, 2009
