The Julian Sander Gallery is happy to present a retrospective by the American photographer Rosalind Fox Solomon. The artist’s photographs always span a field of tension between the personal and the universal, between art and documentation. The portraits in particular capture a wide variety of realities and perceptions of life. They enable the artist – but also the viewer – to reflect on their own life experiences and existential issues.

Rosalind Fox Solomon was born in Highland Park, Illinois in 1930. She lives and works in New York City. Particularly noteworthy are her portraits, which reflect the connection to the innermost part of the people she depicts: Suffering, ritual, survival and struggle are just some of the themes that are repeatedly visible in her work. The photographs always move between the personal and the universal. The photographer succeeds in a special way in interpreting and photographing both the social elements of the places she travels to and the obsessions and fears that travel with her.

Rosalind Fox Solomon has been associated with the Sander family for decades. Already in 1978, Gerd Sander showed her work in his Washington gallery. She lived in Washington DC for a period in time around 1977, while her husband was an Administrator of the General Services Administration. She photographed artists and politicians there, including Louise Nevelson, Eva Le Gallienne, William Christenberry and Tony Smith.

Solomon consideres photography as a medium and not just as an art form: object and content play an equal role. The gallery Julian Sander picks up on this essential aspect of her work by presenting the photographs as a space-consuming installation, which makes the works tangible in their front and back.
