|Art 39 Basel|
Silverstein Photography will head to Basel, Switzerland to participate in the renowned Art Basel fair in June. Among other works, Silverstein Photography plans to exhibit Werner Bischof’s seminal body, The Concerned Photographer. Recently rediscovered after more than thirty years in abandonment, these original fifty-plus exhibition prints represent one of the most comprehensive and beautifully executed bodies of the artist’s career. First shown at the Smithsonian Institution in 1961, this body of work, curated by Cornell Capa presented the most panoptic survey of the humanist photography movement to date. It was this influential exhibit that became the basis for the formation of the International Center for Photography.
