Robert Weingarten: "Another America: A Testamonial to the Amish"  

Feb 22 2014 - May 25 2014

Marlborough Graphics is pleased to announce that Another America: A Testamonial to the Amish, an exhibition of Robert Weingarten's photographs of Amish communities from around the United States, has opened at the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, New York. The exhibition will be on view through May 25, 2014. The black-and-white photographs in the exhibition were taken over the course of four years in states including Indiana, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Because of the ban on photography in many Amish communities, Weingarten's photographs were taken from afar, from public spaces. However, there is no real sense of of distance- physical or cultural- in the artist's photographs; instead, the serene compositions provide the viewer with a look at everyday Amish life, devoid of any of the "strangeness" that has typically accompanied portrayals of Amish communities in the modern world.
