This retrospective of Alfred Dayan’s photographic work presents a multitude of perspectives on daily life around the world. “The Gimlet Lens” features over 25 works from Dayan’s various photographic series throughout the years. The structure and composition of his work, which is undoubtedly informed by his background in architecture, result in intimate and design-oriented visuals.
“I use my lens to record what my eyes see, and at times do not see.
I record People and Places to awaken my memories.
I record Nature to evoke its beauty.
I record Structures in their simplicity and their complexity
as intellectual perceptions.”
– Alfred Dayan
