Summary

Summary

Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) was a pioneer of 20th-century photography, an artist whose work significantly contributed to the acceptance of the medium as an art form. She devoted her life to her craft and photographed continuously and passionately for over 70 years. Her images of the body explore the human form in great detail: eyes, ears, heads, hands, breasts, feet. Many of her images have become well-known and popular icons in the history of photography. This book presents an overview of Cunningham's figure studies dating from 1906 through to 1976, the year of her death.


Author Notes

Richard Lorenz has devoted much of his career to Imogen Cunningham & nine of the fifteen shows he's curated since 1980 were of her work. In addition to writing eight Cunningham exhibition catalogues, his previous titles include Imogen Cunningham: On the Body (Bulfinch) & Imogen Cunningham: Portraiture (Bulfinch) among other Cunningham books.
