Naomi Savage:

Stretching the Limits of Photography


October 1st – December 26th, 2020

MAB is thrilled to present a retrospective exhibition of works by Naomi Savage (1927-2005).Savage was a highly innovative photographer who regarded the darkroom as a laboratory where she could invent new and exciting techniques that began with photography but which expanded the capability of the medium to new and previously unexplored limits. She was the niece of Man Ray, who advised her that "the darkroom is a place to make fearless tries at whatever images come to mind." Savage followed this advice throughout her career, often pushing photography outside the boundaries of the traditional darkroom, and the works on view at MAB highlight her relentless experimentation and wide-ranging, curious mind.

This exhibition is accompanied by the first ever comprehensive monograph on Savage's work to be published, with an essay by Francis M. Naumann. Published by MAB Books.
