“Inge Morath’s early color photographs, made in the 1950s and 1960s, show all the humor and keen perception that distinguishes her more familiar work in black and white. In addition, these images reveal a great degree of skill and sensitivity to the unique demands of working with color film. Morath exerts exquisite control at moments where a less disciplined artist might succumb to sentiment. In image after image, she finds the essential colorful detail that transforms an ordinary view into a lyrical metaphor”
