About

4671 1/8 1987 1/20. This is a vintage gelatin silver print, selenium toned, made by hand by master photographer Jack Mitchell and signed both on the recto and verso. Chosen by the photographer as one of his favorite works, and mounted and matted as shown by Mitchell for exhibition. Ready to frame size 20 x 24". Comes directly from the Jack Mitchell Archives with a certificate of authenticity. Jack Mitchell's artist’s statement on this project: For five decades in New York City I photographed established and emerging creative and performing artists for major publications. The Numbered Nudes photographs are a development, and expansion, of my dance photography. Most of the anonymous nude models are famous dancers. With these images I have attempted to produce kinetic illusion in two dimensions. The images with lines and shapes repeated across the entire picture space I think of as staccato movement. The images with softly flowing shapes randomly crossing, or juxtaposed, are intended to create a feeling of lyrical movement. Due to the inherent complexity of taking three to eleven exposures on a single frame of film, most of these works are pre-conceived and line sketched on post-its long before the model’s arrival. Sometimes the resulting photograph resembles my sketch. Sometimes the resulting photograph is infinitely superior due to unpredicted designs formed by the uncalculated, and glowing, confluence of brightly lighted sections of the model’s anatomy. In an effort to depersonalize the nude figure, and to create a timeless image, I do not show the model’s face. The number in the title of the photograph is my negative file number for that image. The Numbered Nudes photographs were taken in my New York City studio from 1986 through 1995. - Jack Mitchell, 1997 Mitchell’s photographs are in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, among others. The 2019 USPS Black Heritage postage stamp honoring American performer Gregory Hines was made from a Jack Mitchell photograph, and a Jack Mitchell photograph of Audre Lorde was transformed into a huge glass mosaic as a permanent installation at the 167th Street MTA subway station in NYC
