Women as Art: 50 Years of an Evolving Vision

"Today there are tens of thousands of serious photographers seeking new interpretations of the beauty of the female form. There is but a handful whose work truly interests us by revealing different ways of seeing and understanding this beauty. Robert Farber is one of the very few who is able to delight and please us in this elusive approach to nature. From abstraction to realism he reveals to us his love of the female form. His delightful and beautiful photographs offer a unique pleasure." 


—Arnold Newman, 2001


About the Exhibition

Farber’s photographs introduce viewers to a world of beauty in which women are often overlooked and objectified by society. Exploring the female form, he captures the true essence of a woman in her undisturbed element. His works entice the viewer to contemplate and question beauty versus sexuality, encouraging reconsideration in the way one looks at the female form.

"Bodies are fully as expressive as faces. Sometimes the arch of a back, the curve described by an arm, the tension of an outstretched leg, can evoke responses that a facial expression can't."
