Richard Liebman’s Legacy.
Jeremy Liebman, well-known photographer, returned home to New York from his native Dallas one Christmas with a suitcase full of his father’s old negatives. He spent many years exploring them, some a trip down memory lane, places and faces he recognised, while others a deeper look into his father’s personal life and passion for photography.
Jeremy’s father, Richard Liebman, was a self-taught photographer who learned the art mostly through specialist magazines, such as Aperture and Camera, as well as books from the likes of Garry Winogard, Diane Arbus and Robert Frank.
Jeremy has since catalogued his father’s work of intriguing monochrome images that tell the somewhat disillusioned story of the 1970s and early 80s.
