In the early 1920s, Imogen Cunningham's perspective shifted and she came up with what would become her signature style: Planzenformen. Through dramatic lighting and tight framing, the artist captures the graphic appearance and poetic objectivity of plants while exploring her own feelings.
This exhibition shows the dimension of this pioneer in modernist photography and offers new insight into pictures that continue to surprise and inspire us due to their complex perspectives and themes. It covers her entire artistic career, spanning more than 70 years.
There are revealing abstract shots of plants and nudes, optical illusions created using techniques such inverted images and double exposure, as well as many of Cunnigham's iconic portraits of artists, dancers, actors, musicians and great thinkers of the 20th century.
