“One of photography’s shrewdest observers of American life.” — Wall Street Journal
Larry Sultan: Here and Home is the first retrospective of celebrated California photographer Larry Sultan (1946–2009). The exhibition explores Sultan's thirty-five-year career, from his early conceptual and collaborative projects of the 1970s to his solo, documentary-style photographs. One of the most influential photographers of his generation, Larry Sultan explored ideas of home, family, belonging, façade, and storytelling in evocative pictures that challenged photographic conventions. Six major bodies of work make up this presentation: Evidence (1975–77),collaboratively with Mike Mandel; Swimmers (1978–82); Pictures from Home (1983–92); The Valley (1997–2003); Homeland (2006–09); and Sultan's editorial work.
Larry Sultan: Here and Home features more than two hundred photographs, a billboard, film, and “Study Hall,” a room offering a unique lens into Sultan’s exploratory process both as an artist and a teacher.
The exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
