  • Catalogue Essay

    [Gilpin’s] images are memorable because they seamlessly combine his conceptual viewpoint with meticulous craft. The palette of tones that he includes in his exquisite prints adds to the wonder and lyricism of his images. This synergistic combination of personal vision and skillful expertise has created photographs that are quickly etched into one's being. Today I can vividly recall Gilpin's images that I saw nearly twenty-five years ago. He has the ability to see beyond the surface of the subject–whether dramatic or prosaic–discovering universal qualities and revealing these in his photographs” – John Sexton, Henry Gilpin: Photographs
