Dana Gluckstein
Portraiture for Social Change
Thursday, December 6, 2012 6:30-8:00pm

During her 25-year career, Dana Gluckstein has photographed iconic figures from Nelson Mandela and Mikhail Gorbachev to Muhammad Ali and Tony Curtis, and produced award-winning advertising campaigns for clients such as Apple and Toyota.   Her vision of humanity is revealed in her photographs of Indigenous Peoples, many of which are in museum and private collections.

Whether photographing a Haitian healer or a San Bushmen chief, Gluckstein infuses each portrait with an essential dignity.  The late renowned Los Angeles County Museum of Art photography curator, Robert Sobieszek explained, “The portraits taken by Dana Gluckstein evidence a clear attempt to reinvest portraiture with that something that was lost some time ago…Gluckstein bestows upon her sitters a sense of stilled dignity, a humaneness entirely devoid of any temporary, fleeting, or accidental quality.”

Her book, DIGNITY: In Honor of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the associated museum exhibition, DIGNITY: TRIBES IN TRANSITION, now touring Europe, have received international acclaim and media attention in support of Indigenous Peoples rights from CNN, The New York Times Book Review, Vanity Fair, Vogue, to name a few.
