JUDITH JOY ROSS I Portraits of America

Fotomuseum Den Haag, The Hague, Netherlands
26 Nov 2022 - 26 Mar 2023
The Fotomuseum Den Haag presents the largest survey to
date of Judith Joy Ross (born 1946), 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. 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.
