​KLCC VisCity Review of this show!

Bob Keefer's Review on Eugene Art Talk

Karin Clarke Gallery in honored to present a selection of photograph from the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art’s exhibit earlier this year From the Heart: The Photographs of Brian Lanker.

Brian Lanker (1947-2011) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and documentary film director, perhaps best-known for international exhibition of portraits titled I Dream a World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changes America and the book Shall We Dance. Lanker’s photographs frequently appeared in LIFE, National Geographic, and Sports Illustrated magazines as well as many international publications.

Included in the sixteen photographs selected for this show are portraits of sports icons like Muhammad Ali, arts figures like Willie Nelson, and scenes of rural America in black and white.
