Press Release:
Acclaimed photographer Lena Herzog presents slides from her recent work Lost Souls and previews her latest work Light Matter in a conversation with Pulitzer Prize winner David Turnley. Herzog’s portfolios have appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, and Harper’s among other publications. Lost Souls recently exhibited at the International Center of Photography, documents museum artifacts of human and animal anomalies inspired by Tsar Peter the Great’s collection in Russia’s Kunstkammera. Though sometimes shocking, the photos are also “profoundly humane” writes Luc Sante in his introduction to the Lost Souls book.
