MOMA, the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City, hosted a special photography exhibition that I was privileged to see this past weekend:
Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography
‘For much of photography’s 170-year history, women have expanded its roles by experimenting with every aspect of the medium. Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography presents a selection of outstanding photographs by women artists, charting the medium’s history from the dawn of the modern period to the present’
Photographs made by some of my favourite artists and icons, including Diane Arbus, Imogen Cunningham and Dorothea Lange, are that much more impactful and weighty, viewed ‘live’ in a collection as opposed to photographic plates in a book.
