If you could take a famous photographer’s picture, who would you shoot? Annie Leibovitz, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth? Abe Frajndlich shot all of the above and then some. If you’re in Cleveland, there’s an exhibition of his work that you shouldn’t miss.
What does it take to lure a photographer from behind the camera? Ask German/American photographer Abe Frajndlich, he knows, considering he’s been doing so since the 70s. His current exhibition at Tregoning & Company in Cleveland Ohio is a celebration of his publication, Penelope’s Hungry Eyes which contains over a hundred of these photographer’s portraits.
Frajndlich’s work represents a who’s who of the photographic world in recent years. The title, whilst also referencing Homer’s Odyssey stresses the insatiable need to photograph experienced photographers. Hence the title, Hungry Eyes.
Are your eyes hungry for some photographer portraits? Yes? The exhibition is open until the end of April. If you’re in the vicinity, don’t miss it.
