Event Description

James Hyman Photography is pleased to present an exhibition of Modernist icons as well as less well known works, which explores the relationship between modernism and nature.


The exhibition consists entirely of rare vintage photographs from the nineteenth and twentieth century and addresses the role of nature for the pioneers of photography. Although the modern metropolis , urbanism and industry may be assumed to be the natural focus for photographers engaged with modernism, the exhibition proposes that for the great pioneers of photography, as for their painter contemporaries, it was frequently nature that provided their starting point.
The exhibition includes important vintage photographs of nature and landscape motifs by among others William Henry Fox Talbot, Charles Negre, J.B. Greene, Edward Weston, Paul Strand, Harry Callahan and Lucien Clergue.
