Vernacular Modernism: The Photography of Doris Ulmann

This is the first complete retrospective of the work of photographer Doris Ulmann (1882 – 1934), treating the full scope of her production, including her early pictorialist photographs, her studio portrait production, her focus on the rural craftsmen and women of Appalachia and her work on the African American and Gullah communities of coastal South Carolina and Georgia.

Ulmann created studio portraits in her native New York of literary and artistic celebrities but also traveled to Appalachia, the rural South and the Gullah coastal region to photograph locals and their crafts. Because of her variety of subjects, her work is difficult to categorize, but it has elements of pictorialism (fine art photography that often blurred its subjects to emphasize atmosphere) and documentary photography. It focuses on preservation of the American past and shows an interest in some of modernism’s concerns: a priority on form, sharper tonal contrast and quality of line, and unmanipulated prints.

Clinton Hill

Clinton Hill was a multitalented artist who was a Renaissance man of the abstract. Neither cubist, futurist, minimalist, abstractionist, or constructivist, he was all at once. This book and the exhibition it accompanies (on view at the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia January 6 March 19, 2018) constitute a survey of his career, from printmaker to painter, from pulp-paper pioneer to lyrical wall constructions. Hill s biographer Susan Larsen referred to his effortless fluency of craft, from which his distinctive visual vocabulary takes voice and which these works demonstrate. William U. Eiland is the curator of the exhibition, the author of this book, and the director of the Georgia Museum of Art.
