Description

Evelyn Hofer began her five-decade career as a photographer in the New York magazine world of the 1940s producing fashion spreads for Harper’s Bazaar. Her commercial experience with color photography made her an early innovator when she shifted her focus to fine art and editorial photography in the 1960s. Hofer used color in expressive ways to direct her viewers’ attention. She framed this portrait of a group of soccer players so that their vibrant jerseys set them apart from the subdued tones of the Dublin park where Hofer encountered them.
