Jefferson Hayman Exhibition Opens May 20, 2017
Tappan, New York based photographer Jefferson Hayman, most recognized for his delicate imagery and handcrafted frames will debut a new show at Catherine Couturier Gallery titled Things I Saw Without You on May 20, 2017.
Drawing from his education in the fine arts and his training in the art of frame-making, Hayman approaches his work with a deep understanding of traditional craftsmanship, and a sense of artistic heritage. Each photograph is individually handcrafted as a silver gelatin, platinum or pigment print, capturing delicate tonalities reminiscent of early Pictorial photography. Finished prints are paired with unique antique or artist-made frames by Hayman whose attention to the distinct attributes of each photograph imbues every piece with a completely individual story and sense of personality.
Although each photograph's negative may be used up to 25 times, each peice is uniquley printed and framed making them all one-of-a-kind.
Hayman’s work is found in numerous private and public collections, notably The Museum of Modern Art Library, The Boston Athenaeum, The New York Public Library, the collection of Sir Elton John, and the collection of Robert DeNiro, amongst many others.
An opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 20 from 5 - 7pm. Things I Saw Without You will be on display through July 29, 2017.
