The history of photography includes many photojournalists. However, those among them whose work exceeds the pure documentation of a moment in history to present an aesthetic vision are limited in number. Many of them are associated with the post World War II boom in the picture press. Yet there are also photographers whose work was reproduced in newspapers and magazines during the medium's first hundred years who stand-out for the timeless quality of their images. Some are familiar names like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Erich Salomon, Margaret Bourke-White, Leni Riefenstahl, James VanDerZee, Lewis Hine, Timothy O'Sullivan and Roger Fenton. Alongside them stand lesser-known photographers like James F. Wood, John Gibson, Rolph Lantin, Arthur Gerlach and others who will sadly remain anonymous.
The gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of early photojournalism dating from 1855 - 1945. The vintage and early prints on view range from iconic images by celebrated artists to anonymous gems. All are invited to the opening Wednesday, September 22, 6-8pm.
Wed - Sat 11am-6pm until November 6th after which time the gallery is open by appointment only.
