Clarence John Laughlin: The Personal Eye

November 8, 1973–January 6, 1974

The Museum paid tribute to the remarkable photographic achievement of Clarence John Laughlin in an exhibition, The Personal Eye, on view from November 8 to January 6. Organized and installed by Michael Hoffman, Advisor to the Alfred Stieglitz Center of Photography, with the assistance of Curatorial Assistant Caroline Wistar, the exhibition of some 200 photographs distilled the essence of Laughlin's life work, from scenes of his native New Orleans to the poetic fantasies that reveal the scope of his creative abilities. In December the Museum was privileged to welcome Mr. Laughlin who discussed his work at a Wednesday Lecture. A monograph of his work, published in cooperation with Aperture magazine, was available in the Museum Shop.
