New photographs of Jackson Pollock revealed

Tony Vaccaro, 'Jackson and Lee, August 1953', 1953

Previously unseen¬†photographs of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner are about to go on display at the Pollock Krasner House and Study Centre.¬† Taken by Pollock’s acquaintance Tony Vaccaro (better known for his¬†WWII photographs), the shots were¬†to¬†be included in¬†a¬†Look Magazine article¬†on East Hampton artists that never came to fruition.¬† While Vaccaro’s colour film was lost, his black and white¬†contact sheets¬†remain intact.¬† And it is from¬†these that the photographs in the show – many of which have never been seen or printed before – were taken.

Jackson and Lee, August 1953: Photographs by Tony Vaccaro, July 29 РOctober 30, Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, 830 Springs-Fireplace Road, East Hampton.
