Brill Gallery : Eve Sonneman


Brill Gallery presents the work of Eve Sonneman.

Eve Sonneman (b.1946) has secured a unique position for herself in the world of Contemporary Art Internationally. Sonneman’s career was launched in the Young Photographers Exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1971. From there, she participated in the 1977 Documenta and in the Biennales of Venice, Paris, Strasbourg and Australia. Sonneman was with Art Dealer Leo Castelli for twelve years.

Sonneman is mostly known for her Diptychs and Polaroid Sonnegrams. Her Photographs are in the Permanent Collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou, Art Institute of Chicago, Menil Foundation, Corcoran, MOCA-LA, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and in more than thirty other museums around the world. Sonneman’s Diptychs are the pairings of two Images, taken just moments apart, thus offering the viewer a unique narrative photographic experience meant to capture the viewer’s imagination and the story.

Sonneman has also published five books including Where Birds Live, Random House, 1992 and How To Touch What, Powerhouse, 2000. Sonneman was also included in the important STARBURST, Color Photography in America 1970-1980 Book by Kevin Moore (Hatje Cantz, 2010) which explains and celebrates the Photographers who helped to elevate photography to a high art. Eve Sonneman is celebrated next to Joel Meyerowitz, Joel Sternfeld, Helen Levitt, William Eggleston, Harry Callahan, Stephen Shore and others.

Eve Sonneman’s Signed Vintage Diptychs and Sonnegrams are available from the Brill Gallery.
