Modernist Photography: Selections from the Daniel Cowin Collection

By Christopher Phillips (Editor) and Vanessa Rocco (Editor)

Modernist Photography reexamines the classic period of twentieth-century photography, using new critical approaches to consider four recurrent visual themes during the years 1915 to 1945. These themes cut across such stylistic movements as Pictorialism, Surrealism, and the New Vision, and include the transformation of objects, experimental images of the body, visions of the city, and the industrialization of the countryside. This thematic approach fosters new perspectives on such key photographers as Berenice Abbott, Brassaļ, Walker Evans, Raoul Hausmann, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, and Man Ray, and emphasizes the interactions between European and American practitioners. ICP Exhibition: September 16 through November 27, 2005.
