SUMMERLAND, CA, February 28, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Gerald Incandela with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Mr. Incandela celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Born in Tunisia, Mr. Incandela immigrated to the U.S. after first traveling extensively throughout Europe making Super-8 movies in Berlin, studying photography and learning the art of printing. Today he is renowned for his unique photographic process of merging drawing with photography. His process includes altering his images in the darkroom as he applies the developer with a paint brush revealing only certain elements of each print. As a result, Mr. Incandela's breathtaking photographs blur reality with abstraction.
Mr. Incadela's work is featured in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum and the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo. Corporate Collections include the Chase Manhattan Bank and Estee Lauder in New York, Johnson Wax in Racine WI and First Bank Systems Minneapolis. Solo exhibitions have included, Paul Kasmin, The I.C.P. and Charles Cowles in New York, Seibu Gallery in Japan, Museum of Modern Art Oxford, Robert Fraser Gallery, London and Galerie Jean Chauvelin in Paris.
In 2012, Mr. Incandela purchased a 5,000 square foot former pool hall in Torrington, CT. to serve as his studio. The top of the building in the former mill town is punctuated with iron finials that were salvaged from old railway signal posts. Meanwhile, Mr. Incandela designed several small, extravagant rooms with the walls adorned with his collection of 19th century photographs. In 2018 the studio was featured in The New York Times Style Magazine.
An alumnus of Lycée Janson-de-Sailly in Paris, Mr. Incandela acquired a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy in 1970. He also completed postgraduate coursework at the University of Nanterre in Paris between 1971 and 1973.
