Jack Siegel was quite literally born on the Fourth of July and there’s an American pervasiveness in his pictures from the dusty palm trees of his native California to the lobby carpet pattern in your local cineplex. He swept onto the scene last year with a two-person show, “Imagined Nostalgia,” for which he and Lucien Smith were celebrated in The New York Times. “When a photograph is successful I get a visceral feeling of intimacy,” he says of his shooting style. While not a direct member of The Still House Group, he is recognized for the association. Jack represents a younger generation of photographers attempting to reconcile the medium between a snapshot aesthetic popularized by Warhol and the new monumentalism of an Andreas Gursky.
