Imogen Cunningham: A Retrospective
novembre 18, 2021 @ 8:00 - février 6, 2022 @ 7:00
We are so lucky to live in Seattle where a retrospective of Imogen Cunningham’s exceptional photographs will be on view at the Seattle Art Museum until February 6, 2022.
This show is the first major retrospective of her work in 35 years and brings together close to 200 of her works. Cunningham’s career spanned seventy years, and the exhibition provides us with a chronological voyage through her subjects.
Her photos embody the poetry of forms. Working in black-and-white with tight framing and a keen eye for shadow, she shot images that often appear like an abstract series of geometries. Nude bodies or flowers are only recognizable upon a closer view. Her work with human subjects often captures their warmth with a rare finesse. Details such as a woman’s long hair lying freely on a bed in “Phoenix Recumbent” gives a sense of tender intimacy. She captured the warmth and essence of her subject with a rare finesse.
A show not to be missed!
