Description

Robert Koch Gallery is pleased to present People at Work, an exhibition of large-scale color photographs by Nathan Baker. Baker constructs minutely detailed tableaux that condense many of the activities associated with any given occupation into one seamless image. The photographs amplify the contours of the American worker's routine and describe the complex role of the individual in contemporary society.

Also on display
An exhibition of photographs by Bill Owens, featuring images from the previously unreleased final installment of his landmark Suburbia series. In the culmination of his documentation of suburban life Bill Owens explores the wide variety of leisure activities, and again demonstrates his distinctive talent for creating images that are simultaneously direct, empathetic and humorous. Leisure consists of largely unseen images in both color and black & white, taken between 1968 and 1980.
