THE CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART
City Seen, A
Photographs from The George Gund Foundation Collection
Essay by John Szarkowski. Foreword by Geoffry Gund.
Some of America's most renowned photographers are featured in this landmark project. Michael Book, Lois Conner, Judith Joy Ross, Dawoud Bey, Linda Butler, Lee Friedlander, Gregory Conniff, Frank Gohlke, Larry Fink, Douglas Lucak, Nicholas Nixon and Barbara Bosworth explore Cleveland from the Cuyahoga River to Lake Erie, through local neighborhoods, public schools, arts institutions and urban gardens.
"Almost since its beginings, photography has attempted to describe cities. I am not aware, however, of any such attempt that has been as open-minded--so philosophically generous--as that pursued by the George Gund Foundation --John Szarkowski.
