About the Exhibit

Willard Traub: Recovery is an exhibition of unique photographs that impose the lens of human experience on the healing process, Traub’s strong, emotional images directly connect us to an artist who might have been critically ill, but remained actively engaged.  In her essay for the exhibition catalog, Karen Haas, The Lane Collection Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, compares Traub’s pictures to the early photographs of Alfred Stieglitz or still lifes by Josef Sudek.  She also remarking on their complexity.  These pictures “are political,” she observes, allowing Traub “to gain a much-needed sense of control in the face of this seemingly out-of-control disease.”  And, they are “also symbolic, as he has come to see them as signifying larger issues, such as love, loss, sustenance, and healing.”
