Modern Times

The Age of Photography

Text by Matti Boom, Hans Roosenboom.

Modern TimesThe Rijksmuseum's Philips Wing is scheduled to reopen in November 2014 with Modern Times: The Age of Photography, a major survey of twentieth-century photography culled from the Rijksmuseum's collection (a first for the museum). Growing spectacularly since the decision was made in 1994 to collect photography beyond the nineteenth century, the collection now includes some 20,000 twentieth-century works, including masterpieces by photographers such as André Kertész, Brassaď, Robert Capa, László Moholy-Nagy, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Weegee, William Klein, Eva Besnyö, Man Ray and Joel Meyerowitz. A wide-ranging overview published to accompany the exhibition, this catalogue—designed by the renowned Irma Boom—traces key developments in photography over the course of the last century through more than 350 photographs, from Eadweard Muybridge's motion studies made at the very end of the nineteenth century to photographs shot in the first decades of the twenty-first by contemporary Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen.

Helen Levitt's "Squatting Girl/Spider Girl, New York" (1980) is reproduced from Modern Times.

Modern Times: The Age of Photography

Modern Times: The Age of Photography

"The relationship between art and photography was certainly strained throughout the nineteenth century," Rijksmuseum curators Matti Boom and Hans Roosenboom write in Modern Times: The Age of Photography, the superb new survey, superbly designed by Irma Boom. "The fact that mechanics, optics and chemistry played such a key role in the production of photographs was fundamentally at odds with the notion that art was a product of the human mind and hand. This explains why, initially, photography was universally rebuffed as an art form. It was, however, appreciated so long as it was only used for making preparatory studies or reproducing works of art. In short, in the nineteenth century the young technology sought to gain access to an art world which exploited it while keeping it safely at arm’s length." Herbert Matter's 1943 gelatin silver print "Light Drawing" is reproduced from Modern Times. continue to blog
