Fuller Gallery

Beginning in the 1920s, many photographers rebelled against the expectation that they should imitate painters. Instead they embraced the unique advantages of the camera, finding fresh perspective through unusual lighting and cropping, unexpected camera angles, and deep focus. These modern ways of seeing revolutionized photography, and continue to influence artists today.

Drawn from the Museum collection, this exhibition includes works by well-known artists such as Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Margaret Bourke-White as well as exemplary work by less-recognized artists.

Featured image: Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958), R.S. – A Portrait, 1922, gelatin silver print. Gift of Audrey and Bernard Berman, 1983. (1983.53.19)
