The Collectors Eye – Masters of 20th Century Photography


Featuring work by: Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, Helen Levitt, Arnold Newman, Alexander Rodchenko, Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Weston

The Collector Eye responds not just to the literal image in art, but also to the emotional context. A collection is not simply an inventory of images. It is also a reflection of the individual collector’s eye.

This exhibition features iconic images from the lenses of some 20 masters of 20th Century photography.

From Adams’ Portraits of the Environment to Newman’s Environmental Portraits. From Lange’s moving images of the American Depression to Ignatovich’s of the Soviet Union’s struggle to emerge from revolution. From Levitt’s street images to Pare and Stoller’s records of architectural masterpieces. From Kerteszs’, European influenced work… to Strand from the Americas and …from the abstractions of Callahan… to the pictorialism of Abbott.

From Steiglitz and Steichen in New York, to Weston and Cunningham in California and Rodchenko in Europe… different environments, different styles, unique personalities formed the mosaic of 20th century photography.

These are the photographers and themes that have formed the basis of important museum and private collections since 1932 when Stieglitz encouraged the Metropolitan Museum of Art to form its monumental photographic collection.
