This autumn, Fotomuseum Den Haag presents the largest survey to date of Judith Joy Ross, regarded as one of the greatest portrait photographers in America. The exhibition features a selection of more than 150 prints, drawn from the photographer’s archive of work over the past fifty years. Opens at Nov 26.
Ross’s portraits are characterised by soft tones of brown, purple, and grey, shallow depth of field, and a powerful emotional charge. Employing the camera as a tool for observation as well as connection, she extends the tradition of Lewis Hine, August Sander and Diane Arbus.
