"The Photography of John Gutmann: Culture Shock"
2001-10-05 until 2001-12-16
Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College
Poughkeepsie, NY, USA United States of America

Born in what is now Wroclaw, Poland, and educated in the art schools and cafés of 1920s Berlin, Gutmann came to the United States following the rise of Hitler in 1933. Unlike most art-minded immigrants of that time, who settled in New York City, Gutmann made his way to San Francisco. In need of a trade and a creative outlet, he took up photography, and over the next half-century created a wide-ranging body of images.

Gutmann trained a skeptical and amused European eye upon the vibrant American urban scene, employing a graphic sophistication he had absorbed from the innovative photojournals of 1920s Weimar Germany. >From the Great Depression to the World War II home front, from the postwar boom years to the counterculture of the 1960s, Gutmann portrayed his adopted country with the verve and insight of a true original, and an inveterate outsider.
