Jean Genet ’s THE BLACKS, the longest-running Off-Broadway non-musical of the 60s, photographed by Hugh Bell. More than a dozen photos by Hugh Bell of this seminal production have recently been catalogued by GME as we review hundreds of additional images by this important figure in contemporary photography.
Hugh Bell was a renowned art and commercial photographer, who worked in New York City over the course of his entire professional career. In 2014 GME was engaged on an exclusive basis by the Bell Estate to manage the collection of Hugh Bell’s photographs and to further the artist’s legacy. GME is committed to resurrecting the career of this overlooked photographer, through licensing of his photographs, republishing his out-of-print books, mounting curated exhibitions, and in identifying a long-term repository for this significant collection of photographic works.
