Stephen Daiter Gallery and Barry Singer Gallery have jointly published a first-rate catalogue on the underrated Edmund Teske--yet one more photographic light that burned a little brighter because of the New Bauhaus/Chicago School of Design, even if that influence was somewhat indirect.
Teske was a long-time friend of Nathan Lerner, who was a teacher at the New Bauhaus and who introduced Teske to many top photographers who taught or visited the school. Perhaps the key point that Teske took away was his lifetime sense of experiment.
Daiter is currently presenting an exhibition on Teske's early years in Chicago, which runs until April 26 at his gallery in Chicago, IL. Singer will present an exhibition of Teske's California work entitled "Edmund Teske: Remembrances" from April 5-June 21 at his gallery in Petaluma, CA.
