John Gutmann: My Eyes Were Fresh

Excerpts from the film: My Eyes Were Fresh (film by Jane Levy Reed)

Gutmann’s work and life story are both remarkable. As a young man he studied painting in the late 20’s under Otto Mueller. With the rise of the Nazi’s he leaves Germany in 1933, and begins his photographic career in San Francisco, which remained his home the rest of his life. Working as a photojournalist through the depression years Gutmann’s keen visual eye trained on the streets of his new adoptive home results in a spectacular body of work.

The video to the right, begins with Gutmann in a gallery discussing one of his common themes, the American fascination with the automobile.

Lumière was proud to feature Gutmann’s work in our exhibition – My Eyes Were Fresh.
Additional images and biographic information can also be found on his artist page.

Folks from Georgia will be familiar with this scene. While an invasive species, and not the most photogenic of flora, kudzu catches the photographic eye of Mark Maio, who accentuates the texture it gives to the Georgia landscape.
