George Eastman House turns to its own unparalleled collections for a survey of photography from the earliest efforts in the 19th century to the most recent techniques and aesthetics. See: Untold Stories, on view March 10 through Sept. 16, 2012, is the first of several exhibitions showcasing the collections, in an effort to share a wide variety of the little known and rarely seen.
The collection material will be presented in the way the artists intended it to be seen, in groups, sets and portfolios. Among the material shown will be a selection of prints from Ansel Adams’s first portfolios (1948-1963); proof prints by Edward Steichen; images of Marilyn Monroe by Philippe Halsman; a selection of daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes donated to the museum by distinguished collector Donald Weber; the original 1876-1877 woodburytypes of John Thomson’s Street Life in London; dye-transfer prints by Harold Edgerton; “Roll, Jordon, Roll” by Doris Ulman made in the Sea Islands of Georgia in the early 1930s; Garry Winogrand’s “Women are Beautiful” series; Neil Winokur’s “A to Z” portfolio; and commercial work by Joel-Peter Witkin. The series also includes an extensive study of the work of noted pictorialist Frederick Evans curated by Alana West, Eastman House’s 2010 Tanenbaum Fellow.
