Ira Martin, 1886-1960 The Family Archive @ Rick Wester Fine Art

Not sure who Ira Martin is, but his pictures look like they could be recently discovered outtakes from most well-known photographers of his lifetime. I guess the question is, at what point does the popular appetite dry up for discovering unknown photographers? I can’t think of an unknown or forgotten photographer rediscovered in my lifetime, which I can point to as someone who changed what I know about photography. That isn’t to say I don’t like looking at them, I am just not sure how much I care. I like the pictures, but I will not remember them a year from now. I barely remember them days later as I write this.


Through Feb. 18th
