“When you set up pictures, you’re not at any risk. Reality involves chance and risk and diving for pearls.”—Nan Goldin

Fifty years ago, during a tumultuous 1963, Constantine Manos joined Magnum Photos. Reared in South Carolina to Greek immigrant parents, he has for over 60 years taken photographs that are about light, shadow and what can be revealed in a moment. His pioneering work in color, and recognized expertise with a Leica, still capture our attention.

The Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale’s latest show, Florida Color, mines work from Manos’s “American Color” series. While this work has already received wide acclaim, I wonder what Floridians make of seeing images of their compatriots inside a museum. Are they a mirror or a window? —Lane Nevares

    oh wow I love these ones by Constantine Manos. Very Alex Webb-ish, but much more isolated and detached.
