Judith Joy Ross: Photographs 1978-2015 is an illuminating retrospective that explores the life and career of a revered American photographer, illustrated by two hundred of her images, many never before seen or published.

The work of Judith Joy Ross marks a watershed in the lineage of the photographic portrait. Her pictures-unpretentious, quietly penetrating, startling in their transparency--consistently achieve the capacity to glimpse the past, present, and perhaps even the future of the individuals who stand before her lens. Adolescents swim at a local municipal park, ordinary people are at work and play. From immigrants and refugees, to tech workers and students, military reservists and civilians--all are incisively rendered with equal tenderness in Ross's black-and-white, large-format portraits.

Published alongside the largest exhibition to feature Ross's work to date, and drawn from her extensive archive of photographs made over the span of more than thirty-five years, Judith Joy Ross: Photographs 1978-2015 encompasses the best work of this influential photographer.
