Isaac Julien, Film Noir Staircase, 1989/2016 © Isaac Julien courtesy Galerie Ron Mandos
The early photographs by Isaac Julien (United Kingdom, 1960) on view in the exhibition pay homage to Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes. When Julien prepared this award-winning work, he studied the photographs of James Van der Zee, George Platt Lynes and Robert Mapplethorpe. The images are presented both in their original form as silver gelatine works printed on Ilford paper, and as large-scale pieces using digital and analog techniques to create an immersive, cinematic experience.
