An exhibition of new works by California-based photographer Robert Weingarten is being presented at the High Museum of Art from January 23 through May 30, 2010. This exhibit will feature twenty-one large-scale Picture 17digitally-created portraits of American icons, and represents a bold departure from traditional camera portraiture.

Weingarten, whose career as a photographer commenced at the age of 54, has developed a unique oeuvre of composite images that capture personalities, rather than simply revealing physical appearances.
