The AIPAD Photography Show 2022: Keith de Lellis Gallery (L'oeil de la Photographie)

In 1861, the incomparable stage actress Sarah Bernhardt, then 17, posed for the famous photographer Nadar. She was just beginning her extraordinary and successful career. Famous throughout the world for playing heroes as well as heroines, Bernhardt’s celebrity anticipated the phenomenon of late–20th-century media stars. The portrait will be one of the highlights of Keith de Lellis Gallery, New York, which will present a thematic exhibition of both formal studio portraits and informal street photography, with a focus on the work of Black photographers of the mid-20th century.
