Words and Images from the American Media gathers over 162 images that Donald Blumberg has photographed directly from newspapers and television screens since the 1960s. In his most recent work from this series, Blumberg’s photographs also include closed captioning texts. This new approach reveals numerous contemporary American cultural expressions and archetypes. Blumberg’s presentation of these images is often highly humorous and darkly satirical, and at times deeply poignant.

Donald Blumberg is a photographer based in California. Jock Reynolds is the Henry J. Heinz II Director of the Yale University Art Gallery.
