A singer, songwriter, actor, writer, filmmaker, and photographer, the British-American artist David Byrne has never limited himself to one profession. His photography cannot be classified into a particular genre, much like his music. Among the highlights of the upcoming Finarte sale is one of Byrne’s photographs, titled Target Practice Clothesline, Cuba, 1990. The piece measures 76 by 94 centimeters. Another available piece from Byrne is titled Sprague Maternity Ward, North Adams, MA, 1996.
Army Girls I, a photograph by Sergey Bratkov, is offered as well. Born in Ukraine and settled in Moscow, Bratkov has documented the post-Soviet life for more than two decades. His Army Girls portrait series was completed in 2000. The auction also features a gelatin silver print of Mario Giacomelli’s L’approdo. It was taken in 1953, the year Giacomelli took to photography and joined the Misa Group. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
