NEW YORK, NY.- On view at the International Center
of Photography, ICP,  from January 29 through May 9, 2010, Alan B. Stone
and the Senses of Place explores photography’s unique ability to revive one’s
sense of connection to the past, and considers some of the many meanings
associated with “place.”
Guest curator David Deitcher presents the work
of the little-known Montreal-based photographer Alan B. Stone (1928–1992) as a
case study that considers some of the ways in which people experience, use, and
are affected by photographs. This intimate installation of around 75
photographs, newspaper clippings, and small magazines proceeds from the
assumption that one knows one’s past in part through pictures, through
identifying with photographs that relate to one’s lived experience.
