Comments/Context: This small show is a reprise of the late 1970s Sonneman images that were on view in the Starburst show last year at Princeton (review here), with a couple of additions/replacements.
In seeing these images again, I came away most interested by the technique of time-delayed pairings, more so than by any specific example on display. It seems to me that this seemingly simple innovation has surprisingly powerful resonance and continued relevance, even 30+ years later.
Collector's POV: The works in this show are priced at $25000 each. Sonneman's work is not readily available on the secondary markets, so gallery retail is likely the only option for interested collectors at this point.
My favorite image in the show was Newspaper, New York, 1980; it's the middle picture in the top installation shot. I like the interplay of the all-over shadows, and the movement of the blown newspaper across the frame.
