with Maggie Steber
on view February 19 – April 7, 2018
San Francisco, California
The Gallery at Leica Store San Francisco will present The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma, an imaginative dream sequence produced by photographer Maggie Steber for which she was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Grant in 2017. The ongoing series documents Steber’s subconscious and imagination in photographs captured by her alter-ego, Lily LaPalma. The exhibit includes more than thirty color photographs, each treated to reveal depth and mystery. The series not only reflects countless influences from Steber’s life dating back to her childhood, it also represents a complete reinvention of herself, departing sharply from the documentary aesthetic for which she is known.
This is the first exhibition of The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma in the United States and is ongoing thanks to a generous grant from the Guggenheim Foundation.
