Signs are truly a "universal language" of human expression, humor, commercialism with enormous popular interests and appeal. The collection was photographed over 23 years and 43 states!
These never published images, are a documentation of past Americana and visual imagery and expressionism. Walker Evans, Man Ray,Chuck Close, Cartier Bresson, Chistenberry -NO other single photographer in history has achieved the immense scope (and variety) of this "photo realism"collection and in such a powerful form of popular expression.
Susan Kismarik, photo curator at MOMA, selected images as National Award Winners for photo show at Soho Gallery in July!
* Many sign images are relics of "Americana" and a vital record of the past and are GONE FOREVER - never to be recaptured or documented!
I am looking for private or corporate collectors and will consider individual purchases from the collection.
