Mitchell Funk, ‘Walking the Dog in Central Park’, 1973, Robert Funk Fine Art

Soft golden late light pours into central park and illuminates a solitary man and his dog with a glowing ring of radiance. The joy of photography is on full display in this early work with the clear intent of creating visual beauty. Beauty is a term that is lauded in impressionist painting but for some reason it has been shunned in color photography. It was done in 1973 and due to new skyscrapper construction this angle is not available anymore. Mitchell Funk is a pioneer of color photography, having exhibited work in the first Color Photography show at any major museum. "Images en Couleur" Brooklyn Museum, 1970.
