"Cunningham took many beautifully staged images of her husband and three sons, and her merger of the roles of mother and artist inspired contemporary photographers like Sally Mann and Katharina Bosse. But she had many lives as an artist: training with Edward Curtis, founding f/64 with Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, shooting Hollywood portraits for Vanity Fair, street photography. Imogen Cunningham is a superbly printed celebration of this sculptor in black and white." --The Wall Street Journal.

Imogen Cunningham

Published by TF Editores/D.A.P.
Text by Celina Lunsford, Jamie M. Allen, Marisa C. Sánchez.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Imogen Cunningham</I>.Throughout her long life, Imogen Cunningham was tireless and exemplary in her pursuit of new developments in photography and in the expansion of her own practice. An inspiration to several successive generations, she reinvented the genres of botanical photography, street photography, nudes and portraiture, and expanded the possibilities of the double exposure. This publication celebrates the rich diversity of this modernist pioneer, covering Cunningham’s entire seven-decade career--from her abstract shots of plants and nudes and optical illusions created using techniques such as inverted positive/negative images and double exposure, to her iconic portraits for Vanity Fair of artists, dancers, actors, musicians and writers such as Man Ray, Alfred Stieglitz, Martha Graham, Frida Kahlo, Gertrude Stein, Morris Graves and Merce Cunningham. The selection also includes many rarely reproduced works, plus essays by Celina Lunsford, curator of the exhibition, Jamie M. Allen and Marisa C. Sánchez, an illustrated chronology and selected bibliography.

Born in Portland, Oregon, Imogen Cunningham (1883–1976) chose at an early age to become a photographer and a working woman outside the home--choices that were profoundly bold for a woman of her generation. Around 1905-06, she purchased a 4 x 5 inch camera. After completing studies at the University of Washington, and the Technische Hochschule in Germany, she married, living first in Seattle and later in San Francisco, where--with Ansel Adams, John Paul Edwards, Sonya Noskowiak, Henry Swift, Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston--she cofounded Group f/64, which practiced the conceptual constraint of unmanipulated photography. In 1945, Adams Cunningham joined the faculty of the California School of Fine Arts. She continued to take photographs until shortly before her death at 93.

Cunnigham took many beautifully staged images of her husband and three sons, and her merger of the roles of mother and artist inspired contemporary photographers like Sally Mann and Katharina Bosse. But she had many lives as an artist: training with Edward Curtis, founding f/64 with Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, shooting Hollywood portraits for Vanity Fair, street photography. 'Imogen Cunnigham' (TF Editores, 253 pages, $65) is a superbly printed celebration of this sculptor in black and white.

Best of 2013: Imogen Cunningham

Best of 2013: Imogen Cunningham"Imogen Cunningham was a true artist: throughout her long life she embraced the diverse developments of photography and the liveliness of the changing times in which she lived (1993-1976). An inspiration to successive generations, she was herself a vintage figure, a root of the ever-expanding family tree of photography that we continue to experience in our lives today. Her genuine human interest was on-going and is still refreshing now, at a time when photography has become overpowered by artistic re-interpretation and appropriated photographs themselves are seen as precious objets d'art. It is her modernist artistic legacy that has impacted photography most, but her thirst for experimentation was perpetual. Her integrity, frankness of opinion, her wit and respect of individual rights live on." Curator Celina Lunsford's text is reproduced from Imogen Cunningham, one of our top Holiday Gift Books of 2013. continue to blog
