Photographers of Genius at the Getty
The innovative pioneers presented here span the early nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries. They advanced the art of photography and in the process brought about changes in the history of art. These artists include will known photographers such as Gustave Le Gray, Julia Margaret Cameron, Eugene Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, August Sander, Andre Kertesz, Man Ray, Edward Weston, Brassai, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Weegee, and Diane Arbus. Others will be new even to experts. For example, early innovators Girault de Pragney, Anna Atkins, Camille Silvy, Henry Bosse and the Langenheim brothers have been rediscovered in recent years, bringing to light the importance of their particular contributions to the history of art and photography. Each artist is represented by three related images and interpretive remarks by Weston Naef. Illustrations include selections from Atget's signature views of Paris, Stieglitz's portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe, Weston's distinctive nudes, and Arbus's images of women.
