Philip Trager: Photographing Ina

Following a retrospective exhibition in 2006 of his internationally renowned images of architecture and of contemporary dancers, Philip Trager responded to the opportunities presented by digital photography and created a new series of images. This culminated in the book Photographing Ina, forthcoming from Steidl. The exhibition had two parts. The first was a series of immaculately composed black-and-white photographs taken in the 1980s, after 25 years of marriage. The second part, taken in the last decade after 50 years of marriage, revealed Trager's new color photography—an unexpected and tender meditation on the act of photographing, on perception, color, and light.
