R.I.P Sara Charlesworth – Conceptual Photographer

  • Sara Charlesworth Incisive Conceptual Photographer dies at 66.

    Artist Sarah Charlesworth, whose trenchant work investigated pop culture by borrowing from and tweaking its imagery, died of a cerebral hemorrhage yesterday, according to her New York gallery, Susan Inglett. She was 66.
    Ms. Charlesworth is perhaps best known for her “Modern History” series, which she made from 1977 to 1979 by producing photographs of the front pages of various newspapers, typically excising all the content except the nameplate and photographs.
