The Museum of Modern Art's book, with an introduction by Lincoln Kirstein, brings to the public a group of long-forgotten photographs recording the activities of Negro and Indian students at the Hampton Institute in Virginia at the turn of the century. These photographs, originally made for the Paris Exposition of 1900 by Frances Benjamin Johnston as part of an exhibition demonstrating contemporary life of the American Negro, comprise a body of work almost inexhaustibly revealing. 55 pp.; 45 illus. Published in 1966 and includes 44 photographs of Frances B. Johnston and text by Lincoln Kirstein, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929. These exhibition- and collection-related titles are renowned for their high production values. Please note that the cover photo is for reference only and does not reflect the actual condition of the book being sold.
