Who? A Brief History of Photography through Portraiture (Part 2)
September 17, 2019 - December 10, 2019
The Norton’s new Kenneth C. Griffin Building features the first dedicated gallery – the Jodi Ann Saltzman Gallery – to showcase the Museum’s permanent collection of photography. The inaugural installation continues with a new selection of approximately 50 works that traces the history of the medium through portraiture. Beginning with 19th-century daguerreotypes and albumen prints, and ending with 21st-century examples by artists such as Cathy Opie, Nikki S. Lee, and Daniel Gordon, these works examine the reciprocal influences between photography and the portrait. Works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander, Ansel Adams, Walker Evans, Gilbert & George, and Lalla Essaydi also will be on view.
