Dennis Stock’s Classic Photos Of James Dean, Marilyn Monroe And Others On Display.
Dennis Stock’s classic, black-and-white photos documenting the “The Golden Age of Hollywood,” are getting a well-deserved showcase in a new retrospective exhibition. Called, simply, “Dennis Stock Photographs,” the images are on display at the Milk Gallery in New York City until April 17th.
“Whether Stock was shooting celebrities or simply exploring the world from behind the lens, he created images that fully capitalize on the basic function of the still-photo: he captured moments in time,” according to a write-up from Magnum. “A Dennis Stock image delivers an enormously complex and nuanced context in a single frame, perfectly evoking all the little things about a situation that allow us to be transported.”
