With this photographic exhibition we have the opportunity to celebrate a nearly forgotten photographer: Marsha Burns. The only US-American photographer invited to give a lecture to the »Werkstatt für Photographie« at the Volkshochschule in Kreuzberg in 1984, here in Berlin her work was exhibited at the Amerika-Haus.
Burns’ photographs primarily engage in a dialogue with classical portraiture. While in Europe, she focused on taking numerous staged portraits of young people with her large-format camera.
