Altering Perceptions -
William Meyers:“'Revelations,' the name of the Wynn Bullock retrospective at the High Museum of Art, is something of a pun. This is the first large-scale exhibition of Bullock's work in 40 years, so the show is intended to make him known—to reveal him—to a new audience. But, also, Bullock was committed in his photography to showing—that is, revealing—things beyond ordinary perception. SOURCE: http://online.wsj.com/articles/exhibition-review-revelations-1404338347

Beyond Cartier-Bresson: A History of a Master’s Early Work - Carole Naggar: “The primary (but hardly the sole) merit of this extraordinary Cartier-Bresson retrospective is that it sheds light on little-known aspects of his career. Too often Cartier-Bresson has been represented only as the artist of the “decisive moment,” as if his vision had emerged fully developed in one burst, and remained constant throughout his career. The reality, of course, is much more complex. http://lightbox.time.com
