Photographs by Aaron Siskind in Homage to Franz Kline

In his work, Aaron Siskind explores the importance of friendship between individuals as well as the larger concept of communication within the artistic community.

As a result of his personal friendship with and aesthetic influence from Franz Kline, Siskind uses media such as broken walls and flaking plaster to achieve similar effects on film to those Kline achieved in paint.
