Abe Frajndlich „Penelope´s Hungry Eyes"

In focus gallery, Burkhard Arnold, Cologne in cooperation with Rhenania Art House is proud to announce the exhibition: PENELOPE'S HUNGRY EYES: Photographs by ABE FRAJNDLICH - opening on Saturday, September 8th 6-9pm, show ends September 23rd . The exhibition was named after Abe Frajndlich´s latest acclaimed book of 101 images of 20th century photographer/artists, PENELOPE'S HUNGRY EYES: Portraits of Famous Photographers --just published by Schirmer/Mosel.

PENELOPE'S HUNGRY EYES: Portraits of Famous Photographers has already been hailed by USA, French and German photography critics as one of the most significant new books on photography of the last decade. Frajndlich received an entire page in the Jan. 15th Sunday New York Times along with a dozen portraits from the book --unprecedented acclaim indeed.

For over 20 years Abe Frajndlich has been an artist who in focus gallery admired and championed, dating back to his first museum exhibition at the Cologne museum "Ludwig" in 1990, which was sponsored by KODAK. Since that time, Abe and I have explored various ideas for another exhibitions -looking for the right combination of images, timing and space and significance combining to bring him back into view in the city of his first museum show. A selection of portraits from his series "PENELOPE'S HUNGRY EYES" exhibitioned in the RHENANIA ART HOUSE, located at the recently most hype place in Cologne at the Rheinau harbour, during world famous PHOTOKINA fair, is the result.

During the special weekends on Saturday (22.09.) Abe Frajndlich speaks to his photographs and signs his book: „Penelope´s Hungry Eyes".
