Drawn from the Robert Marks Collection, this exhibition features thirty photographs by renowned 20th century photographers. From Alfred Stieglitz's intimate composite portraits of Georgia O’Keeffe to Lewis Hines’s depictions of American laborers, modernist-era photographers radically shifted how the human body was captured on film and for what purpose. Employing a variety of techniques from cropping and zooming, to distortion and framing, photographers explored the human figure for social, performative, voyeuristic, and documentary purposes. Highlights include the work of Stieglitz, Hines, Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, George Platt Lynes, and László Moholy-Nagy.
