Event Description

More than 500 photographs by the masters of the medium will be on view. 

W.M. Hunt is a renowned curator and dealer who has been collecting photographs for 40 years. A self-described “champion of photography,” he is well-known for his “eye” and sense of humor. Hunt describes the collection as “magical, heart-stopping images of people in which the eyes cannot be seen.”

The featured works range from daguerreotype to digital by photographers such as Berenice Abbot, Richard Avedon, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Irving Penn, Many Ray, Edward Steichen, Edward Weston, and Joel-Peter Witkin, as well 19th-century work from Nadar, Alinari, and Roger Fenton.
