This is the first retrospective of celebrated California photographer Larry Sultan (1946–2009). The Milwaukee exhibition runs through Jan. 24, 2016, and is its sole venue outside of California. Here and Home explores Sultan's thirty-five-year career, from his early conceptual and collaborative projects of the 1970s to his solo, documentary-style photographs. One of the most influential photographers of his generation, Sultan explored ideas of home, family, belonging, façade and storytelling in evocative pictures that challenged photographic conventions. Six major bodies of work are represented: Evidence (1975–'77), done collaboratively with Mike Mandel; Swimmers (1978–'82); Pictures from Home (1983–'92); The Valley (1997–2003); Homeland (2006–'09) and Sultan's editorial work. Larry Sultan: Here and Home features more than two hundred photographs, a billboard, film, and "Study Hall," a room offering a unique lens into Sultan's exploratory process, both as an artist and a teacher. The exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Presenting sponsors in Milwaukee are Madeleine and David Lubar. Museum hours are 10am-5 pm Tues.-Sun. and until 8pm on Thurs. For more information, visit or phone (414) 224-3200. V Now is the time to visit Larry Sultan, Untitled, from the series Swimmers, 1978-1982, Chromogenic print Image.
