One of the most prolific female photographers, Imogen Cunningham, broke the barriers for women in photography in the early and mid-1900s. A contemporary of Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz, Wynn Bullock, and Edward Weston, Cunningham took a unique approach to photography for that time with her straight-on detailed plant studies, female and male nudes, portraits of fellow artists, and by putting herself in front of the camera.
In collaboration with Meg Partridge, Director of the Imogen Cunningham Trust and granddaughter of Imogen, Ryan Gallery at Art Intersection presents a notable collection of intriguing vintage and estate prints, including platinum and gelatin silver, exploring Cunningham’s feminine perspective and celebrating some of her most notable photographic works.
Please join us at the Opening Reception and throughout the upcoming weeks for this unique opportunity to view and purchase highly collectable Imogen Cunningham prints.
