Fraenkel Gallery at Art Basel
June 19-22, 2014
This year at Art Basel, our booth features works by Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Mel Bochner, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Katy Grannan, Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar, Richard Learoyd, Sol LeWitt, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Garry Winogrand, among others.
Fraenkel Gallery is delighted to represent Alec Soth. Since his first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, Soth has stood out as a distinctive voice in contemporary photography. Rooted in the narrative framework of traditional photographic expression, Soth has continued to push the boundaries of the medium. Visit his artist page on our website.

This retrospective exhibition, organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the National Gallery of Art, offers a rigorous overview of Winogrand's complete working life and reveals the full sweep of his career. Catalogue available.
The result of three years' work in California’s Central Valley, this large-format, two-volume monograph features Grannan’s large-scale color portraits and black-and-white photographs. Grannan’s recent work is set in the parched landscape and forgotten towns along Highway 99, including Modesto, Fresno and Bakersfield.
