Talking With A Friend

Feb 13, 2019 - ongoing

Bern Schwartz embarked on an exciting new chapter in life when he turned his energy to
photography at the youthful age of sixty. Inspired by friendships he made with notable
photographers of the time, Schwartz’s goal was “to create pictures that are true to the
personality of each subject, and [would] stand the test of time…”.
Talking With A Friend: Portraits by Bern Schwartz showcases photographs made by the artist
from 1977-1978. The exhibition features portraits of Prince Charles, David Hockney, Twiggy,
and Zandra Rhodes among others. All of the images come from MOPA’s photography
collection, generously donated by the Bern Schwartz Family Foundation in 2017.
