An Uncommon Archive

In his introduction to An Uncommon Archive, Tom Adler's collection of lasting images culled from projects, books and other references over the past few decades, photography editor and gallerist James Danziger writes, "The key to the selection of images is that singly and in combination they all convey a visceral quality that arrests not just the eye or the mind, but the heart. Covering almost the entire history of the medium, these light-infused 'saved references' carry unexpected beauty and depth. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with photographic images, these pictures invite us to stop and relish the moment. They ask questions of authorship and intent. They ask questions not just of the collector who selected and ordered these images, but of ourselves. What is it that we respond to? What makes one image move us more than another? These photographs are an invitation." Featured image, of Elizabeth Taylor on the set of Giant in 1955, is by Frank Worth.
