Edited by Quentin Bajac, Lucy Gallun, Roxana Marcoci, and Sarah Hermanson Meister. With contributions by Douglas Coupland, Kevin Moore, Drew Sawyer, and Pepper Stetler
Photography at MoMA: 1920 to 1960 charts the explosive development of the medium during the height of the modernist period. As photography evolved from a tool of documentation and identification into one of tremendous variety, its rapport with the visible world was transformed, as seen in Walker Evans's documentary style, Dora Maar's Surrealist exercises, El Lissitzky's photomontages, August Sander's unflinching objectivity, the iconic news images published in the New York Times, Man Ray's darkroom experiments, and Tina Modotti's socio-artistic approach.
In eight thematic chapters, this book presents more than two hundred artists, including Berenice Abbott, Manuel Ãlvarez Bravo, Geraldo de Barros, Margaret Bourke-White, Bill Brandt, Claude Cahun, Harry Callahan, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Roy DeCarava, Robert Frank, Germaine Krull, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Alfred Stieglitz, Otto Steinert, and James Van Der Zee. 392 pp.; 375 illus.
This is the second volume in the three-volume Photography at MoMA series, which draws upon the exceptional depth of the Museum's collection to tell a new history of photography. View the other titles in the series: Photography at MoMA: 1840 to 1920 and Photography at MoMA: 1960 to Now.
