Summer Cat, 2007 by Hank Gans, is a 24” x 18” black-and-white documentary landscape photograph of a white cat on a dusty road in upstate New York (Garrison).

On a lazy summer day the cat followed Gans on a walk, occasionally ducking its head behind the bushes to observe for this photograph a child walking down the hill.

The cat belonged to the Freed family.. The same beloved pet appeared in one of the last photographs shot by Leonard Freed.

Summer Cat is on baryta paper printed by the artist in an edition of 5, signed, titled, dated on recto (front bottom in white margin). Available: 1/5.

Other sizes available. Please inquire.

Artist's Bio:

Hank Gans (b.1948) is an award-winning photographer, including 12 Epson International Pano awards. His work has been featured in Photographis, Lenswork, and is in private collections. Based in New York City and New Jersey, Gans is a fine-art photographer.

From the 1970s-1980s Gans enjoyed a career in commercial photography that was launched after assisting the portrait photographer, Yousuf Karsh, and working as an assistant to Time and Newsweek editorial photographers in the 1970s.

In 1971 Gans met Magnum street photographer Leonard Freed at a New School photo class where Freed stepped in to teach for Diane Arbus who had met an untimely death. Gans and Freed’s friendship began and Gans shared Freed’s Westbeth darkroom for 14 years.

In 1983, a workshop in Maine with Ernst Haas changed Gans’ life and sent him on a journey of self-exploration, which included living with the Hopi tribe in northern Arizona for three years.

Today Gans conducts workshops in San Gimignano, Italy and Tenants Harbor, Maine.
