Excited to collaborate with the Whitney Museum of American of Art on today’s typology : a collection of hand studies by Edward Hopper. An exclusive look into the Hopper Drawing exhibition opening to the general public tomorrow at the Whitney. If you’re a member you are able to enjoy it today!
These sketches plus dozens of other works by Hopper, many of which have never before been exhibited or researched, will be on view May 23-October 6, 2013. An incredible opportunity to look into Hopper’s creative process.

Diana Zlatanovski is a perfectionist — in the wonderful way that an anthropologist, photographer and museologist should be. She works with cultural artifacts at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and has immersed herself in the significance of collections for a decade.
That time spent studying the intricacy of groups has inspired her photo series, The Typology: beautiful, highly detailed photographs of various collections — both the individual objects and the collections as a whole. (And she has appropriately dubbed herself The Typologist.)
“There are many so fascinating objects in the world, some things we see everyday and might not even notice,” she says. “However, if you bring enough of them together, they start to tell a story and grab your attention.”
