From the artist.
In an era of increased manipulation of the photographic image by computer technology, George Zimbel's commitment to the straight photograph has become stronger. His photographs range from the 1940s to the present and are always printed by himself. Mr. and Mrs. Chester Bonn Take a Ride, 1955 and We Deliver-Houston Texas, 2000 represent the span of his work in Texas over the course of his career. Beyond their excellent formal qualities, these photos document the great changes that the Texas landscape and road culture has undergone in the last half century. They were not conceived of as a pair, but one cannot help but see the interesting dialogue invoked when viewed together.
Documentary photographer George S. Zimbel spent his early career in New York, working for national magazines, as well as self-initiated projects. His work in Texas began in 1950 and extended through 2006. Among other things, Zimbel was a noted photographer of Marilyn Monroe and was featured in the 2001 PBS American Master's production, "Marilyn Monroe: Still Life." His photographs are included in many collections from The Museum of Modern Art, New York to The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
