FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sam Haskins- “Master of the 60’s” to be displayed at Art on Paper Miami
Miami, FL – December 1 – 6th 2015/ – Vintage prints by legendary photographer Sam Haskins will be exhibited at ‘Art on Paper Miami’ at the Deauville Beach Resort. Sam Haskins is a major 20th Century figure whose photography and books can be found in public and private collection internationally.
Gallery (WAS) in conjunction with The Sam Haskins Estate will focus on contemporary and vintage examples of Haskins work from 1961-1968. This will be the first ever overview of Haskins work from the sixties via his four seminal black and white books of personal creative photography; Five Girls (1962), Cowboy Kate & Other Stories (1964), November Girl (1967), African Image (1967). This exhibition will feature previously unreleased vintage prints of Sam Haskins photographs and a tiny stock of pristine vintage books will also be available for sale.
Sam Haskins was a South African born British photographer. He immigrated to London with his family, from Johannesburg, in 1968. His sixties books revolutionized figurative photography and influenced an entire generation of photographers. In his lifetime Haskins did not release vintage examples of his work, requests for prints were met with fresh works made on demand. Art on Paper Miami will be the first opportunity for the public to see these seminal images in their original vintage form. Unlike many master photographers, Sam printed all his own black and white work and these prints are exciting objects from a key period in the history of photography.
To a wide variety of contemporary creatives, especially in the fashion and glamour industry, Sam Haskins is a greater influence now than ever. This show is an opportunity to view and for the first time to own original vintage works by Sam Haskins. Highly affordable contemporary estate prints will also be available.
Gallery (WAS) is proud to collaborate with the Sam Haskins Estate and this inaugural installation of Art on Paper Miami. We consider the promotion of artists that made a large historical contribution but have been overlooked by the Art World at large a crucial mission. In addition to Sam Haskins we will also show rare works by Walter Quirt, Gerome Kamrowski, Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning. Gallery (WAS) is located at 22 Summer Ave, Fairfax, Ca 94930.
