FiftyCrows Fine Print Program – Larry Sultan

leave a comment »

One of the most important components of FiftyCrows is the Fine Print Program, which is a major source of funding for the foundations initiatives. These limited-edition prints have been donated by 35 masters of photography, such as Eve Arnold, Hansel Mieth, and Jacques Lowe. Purchasing a print from the FiftyCrows Fine Print Program enables the foundation to cultivate the future of documentary photography by creating more exhibitions, lectures, and grants. All the prints can be viewed and purchased online at the FiftyCrows website. Please note that if you become a member of FiftyCrows for $35/year you can receive a $200-$1500 discount on photographs from the Fine Print Program. Contact FiftyCrows at info@fiftycrows.org if you are interested in membership or Fine Prints.

Larry Sultan was born in 1946 in New York. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Sultan’s “Pictures form Home” (1992) combines images of his aging parents with dialogue that hints at the conflict beneath the surface. This particular image is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. In 2005, he published “The Valley,” a body of work documenting pornographic film sets in Southern California. Sultan was a professor at the California College of the Arts and sadly passed away last month.
