Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham

Mary and Charlie Babcock Wing Gallery

Embracing the times in which she lived, Imogen Cunningham (1883–1976) created images that reflect crucial movements and developments in art and photography during her seventy-year career. Her photographs, seductive and dynamic, are inspired by a multitude of genres, including portraiture, family photographs, still lifes, and street photography. Cunningham was one of the most experimental photographers in her lifetime.

In this exhibition, unusual and rare images are presented alongside iconic ones, revealing why this American artist is one of the most important pioneers of photography and demonstrating how the unseen for Imogen Cunningham was eternally as important as the familiar.

This exhibition consists of silver gelatin prints from the Imogen Cunningham Trust.
