Painter Chuck Close may be one of the most important figures in today’s art world. His process has always begun with the photograph, but what has been less explored are the ways in which he has engaged the medium of photography itself. This survey is the first to focus on his photographic works, presenting images from the early 1960s to the present that range from straightforward black-and-white portraits to monumentally scaled, composite Polaroids to the intimately scaled daguerreotypes.
