Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #187, from the Disasters series, is emblematic of her work throughout the late 1980s, pushing boundaries of comfort both for the viewer and the artist. While her earlier works, including her seminal Untitled Film Stills, address female stereotypes in popular culture, her photographs throughout the 1980s show an evolution towards images that literally deconstruct the female form. Here, Sherman is indiscernible, using make-up and costume to morph herself into a hybrid creature that is at once human, doll and clown. The exaggerated breasts, a focus of fixation in contemporary society, are removed from any sexual context and reappropriated as the focal point of this monstrous creation.

Lorna Simpson’s body of work is characterized by the weaving of text with image to create narratives that hinder viewers from concluding immediate associations regarding issues of race, identity and gender. In Shoe Lover 3, the viewer is presented with three distinct yet connected visuals. The left image, of a black shoebox with no logo, arguably alludes to the fusing of color and object into a single entity, raising questions of race and objectification, while the addition of the caption “female attraction” introduces gender as an additional constituent. The center image, of a woman’s back, is cropped at the neck and at the hands, thereby attempting to remove two distinct markers of identity and race. The right image of studded heels, a signifier of gender and femininity, is likewise challenged with the caption “attract females,” which imbues the image with a predatory and primal undertone. The presence of the three visuals within the same work, however, is not to reach a conclusive interpretation. Rather, it points at the futility in reaching a single, universal truth in addressing polemical issues concerned with the construction of identity.

Sebastião Salgado is largely recognized as a humanitarian as much as a photographer. His images, exemplary of his proclaimed “militant photography” style, are consistently devoted to universal issues that transcend temporality and immediacy, thereby granting accessibility to viewers across varying social, economic, political, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. In his series Genesis, Salgado turns his lens to remote parts of the world that have remained unmarred by the incursion of Mankind on the planet or toppled by the dizzying effects of globalization. The images seen in lots 138-139 and 175-177 depict geographic and cultural capsules of timeless and innocent beauty, instilling hope in the perseverance of traditions, customs, and as importantly, love of nature.

at the turn of the last century, was heavily influenced by Pictorialism, with its strong emphasis on figural subject matter and Impressionist feel. In the present image, however, despite the romanticized title, the end result is far more Formalist than Pictorialist, of which Steichen has said, “[It] was certainly as realistic a photograph as I had ever made. Yet, friends remarked that it made them think of one thing or another that had nothing to do with the wheelbarrow and the flower pots. […] I began to reason that, if it was possible to photograph objects in a way that makes them suggest something entirely different, perhaps it would be possible to give abstract meanings to very literal photographs.” As such, the work stands at a crux, symbolizing the point in Steichen’s career in which his creative endeavors splintered away from the status quo as he began discovering an alternate mode of photographing.

Following an intense active duty in the First World War, Edward Steichen was consequentially left with the need to discover a new creative outlet as a means to reenergize his photographic drive. Ultimately, he chose to relinquish his former Pictorialist style for Modernism, favoring sleek lines and geometric abstraction over romantic landscapes and classical nudes. His images were created at the juncture of photography and science as his focus shifted to representing weight, dimensionality and proportion. As such, the process of experimenting became as important as the end product for the pioneering efforts involved in presenting the subject matter. In Triumph of the Egg, Steichen haphazardly assembled a group of seemingly unrelated objects—among them a bell jar, a disc, a harmonica, and, of course, an egg. The resulting composition is surprisingly—and triumphantly—abstract, as the objects transcend their own materiality by becoming successfully reduced to their basic constituents of tone, volume, and shape, marking an important turning point in the famed photographer’s career.

Lewis Hine’s interest in photographing people whose life teetered on the socio-economic margins began in 1901, when he became a teacher at the Ethical Culture School in New York under the leadership of Frank A. Manny, a vocal advocate for advanced teaching principles. Initially, Hine photographed subjects within the school walls. However, encouraged by Manny’s reiteration that photography was an educational tool, Hine soon began shooting immigrants in Ellis Island as a way of challenging his students’ discrimination against their foreign peers. The experience at Ellis Island was

Cities do not build themselves, machines cannot make machines, unless [at the] back of them all are the brains and toils of men. We call this the Machine Age. But the more machines we use the more do we need real men to make and direct them. Lewis Hine, Men at Work, 1932

a challenge for Hine himself, struggling to communicate with individuals who did not speak his language. Soon thereafter, in tandem with his occupation as teacher/photographer at the school, Hine pursued a Master’s degree in sociology. Following his tenure at the school and completion of higher education, Hine decided to fuse his skills together to pursue socially-oriented photography on a full-time scale. During that period, through his close friendships with the editors of the newly founded social weekly magazine, Charities and the Commons, (later renamed The Survey), Hine began travelling across the country to document working conditions for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC.) Refuting claims that denied the existence of the dire working conditions, Hine produced over one-thousand photographs, which he likened to “detective work.”

Perhaps as a means of enhancing the impact of the images, Hine captioned each work, sometimes identifying the location, in others the individuals. Most commonly, though, were mentions of the children’s age—some as young as five, and the meager compensations—some as low as ten cents a day.

A Career in Photography, pl. 37

The Cuzco portraits, taken while on assignment for Vogue in Peru in December of 1948, mark a pivotal point in Irving Penn’s career in both subject matter and style. Up until then, Penn’s portraits—from Elsa Schiaparelli to Georgia O’Keefe and George Grosz, were mostly shot while the subjects were left to interact with two large planks propped up in an acute angle at the studio. The extreme nature of the space engendered a variety of reactions by the subjects—from self-contained and shriveling, to self-assured and playful. The architectural confinement became a Rorschach test, revealing and absconding different facets of the subjects’ personalities. However, the Cuzco portraits were devoid of any such spatially confining props. Moreover, the anonymity of the subjects, as opposed to the celebrity status of the aforementioned famed figures, dismissed the inner-self/public-image dichotomy, thereby eliminating the need to present a prop that would provoke

of their Western counterparts, appear accessible and familiar. Gone is the erstwhile exoticization with which South American children had been traditionally photographed, namely, holding wild flowers, exotic fruit, and feral animals. The siblings are shown confidently leaning against a small side table for support; their hands are linked over the table, alluding to their codependence, as they confidently gaze back into the camera. It is not the look of pride nor shame that they give, but one of asserting presence. It is that very same quality that prompted Penn, upon his return from Peru, to take down the studio walls, and allow his subjects to simply be. From the New Guinea mud men and the Dahomey Children (lot 255), to Pablo Picasso and Willem De Kooning, all were given the opportunity to freely engage with the space around them and present themselves in a manner they felt reflected their essence most suitably.

The portraits by Duane Michals of renowned artists, from Joseph Cornell to Claes Oldenbburg, are concerned with the idiosyncrasies of each artist as a person as opposed to the mythical aura that otherwise surrounds them as public figures. In the current lot, French Dadaist Marcel Duchamp is seen perched on a window, seemingly caught off-guard, in a deep meditative state, with his interlocking hands casually resting on his lap. The annotation accompanying the work, “Marcel Duchamp lives behind my apartment on

The photo essay on Ben James, which first appeared in U.S. Camera Annual in 1955, was shot over a number of weeks, during which Frank closely followed the miner and his family. Frank bypassed the common photojournalistic traps, namely, full-body posing, frontal gaze, and emphasis on settings to embellish the narrative. Instead, James occupies the frame nearly in its entirety, his elbows and a sliver of his helmet cropped off, giving

James, at the time a 53-year old father of one, was a third-generation miner in Caerau, a mining village in Glamorgan, South Wales. In many ways, one could argue, James and Frank had much in common. Although the two came from opposite ends of the socio-economic spectrum, both were born into a marginal lifestyle and to a pre-determined fate.

images of the aforementioned subjects are frontal and candid, removed from the critical context in which they had been presented heretofore. The identical twins, adorned in identical clothes, headbands, and hairdos, upon closer inspection begin diverging in personalities as differences in their facial expressions and gaze quietly surface. Their identical presentation is rendered heavy-handed and contrived as they morph into two distinct individuals. It is a powerful testament to Arbus’s gently subversive eye, seeking the normal in the marginalized, and highlighting the unnerving in mainstream.

PROPERTY FROM THE JACOBSON/HASHIMOTO COLLECTION

Phillips de Pury & Company is pleased to present this fourth installment of Japanese Modernist photographs from the Jacobson/Hashimoto Collection. Widely recognized as an expert in the field of American and European photography, Tom Jacobson is best known for his efforts championing the work of the long-forgotten French photographer Pierre Dubreuil. With a similar goal to discover the great photographers of the East, Jacobson turned his attention to Japan’s rich history of art photography in the pre-war era. 322

With a set of rare journals as his starting point, he and his assistant-turnedpartner Kaori Hashimoto embarked on a journey that took them throughout Japan where they researched photographers, often meeting directly with them or their families. Looking at established and unknown photographers alike, and driven by the strength of the images themselves, together they amassed a collection of prints demonstrating the breadth of Japanese modernist photographs. From still-lifes and nudes, to landscapes and city scenes, these photographs reflect the talent and vitality of a culture that would be so drastically altered by war in the coming years. The following 28 lots include works by Fusao Hori, Yoshiyuke Iwase, Koyo Okada, Ryukichi Shibuya, Shikanosuke Yagaki and Iwao Yamawaki, among others. Most of the works are believed to be unique and almost all were acquired directly from the artists or their families.

Consecutive and Responsive Bidding The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or bids in response to other bidders. 4 AFTER THE AUCTION Payment Buyers are required to pay for purchases immediately following the auction unless other arrangements are agreed with Phillips de Pury & Company in writing in advance of the sale. Payments must be made in US dollars either by cash, check drawn on a US bank or wire transfer, as noted in Paragraph 6 of the Conditions of Sale. It is our corporate policy not to make or accept single or multiple payments in cash or cash equivalents in excess of US$10,000. Credit Cards As a courtesy to clients, Phillips de Pury & Company will accept American Express, Visa and Mastercard to pay for invoices of $10,000 or less. Collection It is our policy to request proof of identity on collection of a lot. A lot will be released to the buyer or the buyer’s authorized representative when Phillips de Pury & Company has received full and cleared payment and we are not owed any other amount by the buyer. Promptly after the auction, we will transfer all lots to our warehouse located at 29-09 37th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, New York. All purchased lots should be collected at this location during our regular weekday business hours. As a courtesy to clients, we will upon request transfer purchased lots suitable for hand carry back to our premises at 450 West 15th Street, New York, New York for collection within 30 days following the date of the auction. For each purchased lot not collected from us at either our warehouse or our auction galleries by such date, Phillips de Pury & Company will levy an administrative fee of $35, a storage fee of $5 per day and a pro rated Insurance charge of 0.1% of the purchase price per month. Loss or Damage Buyers are reminded that Phillips de Pury & Company accepts liability for loss or damage to lots for a maximum of five days following the auction. Transport and Shipping As a free service for buyers, Phillips de Pury & Company will wrap purchased lots for hand carry only. We will, at the buyer’s expense, either provide packing, handling and shipping services or coordinate with shipping agents instructed by the buyer in order to facilitate such services for property purchased at Phillips de Pury & Company. Please refer to Paragraph 7 of the Conditions of Sale for more information. Export and Import Licenses Before bidding for any property, prospective bidders are advised to make independent inquiries as to whether a license is required to export the property from the United States or to import it into another country. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to comply with all import and export laws and to obtain any necessary licenses or permits. The denial of any required license or permit or any delay in obtaining such documentation will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot. Endangered Species Items made of or incorporating plant or animal material, such as coral, crocodile, ivory, whalebone, rhinoceros horn or tortoiseshell, irrespective of age, percentage or value, may require a license or certificate prior to exportation and additional licenses or certificates upon importation to any foreign country. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. We suggest that prospective bidders check with their own government regarding wildlife import requirements prior to placing a bid. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any necessary export or import licenses or certificates as well as any other required documentation. The denial of any required license or certificate or any delay in obtaining such documentation will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot.
