8/9/2009 - Private Collection - The Birmingham News
Private Collection. Jennifer Hunt Gallery. Through Aug. 15.
There is a reason for the popularity of art photography. It is
immediately understandable, it often tells some kind of story and it
always is comprehensible in visual terms.
This exhibition includes some of the most famous names in photography,
such as Eisenstaedt, Christenberry and Weston. For those more
knowledgeable about the medium, the names of photographers Barnbaum,
Kenna, Kertesz, Mydans, Suschitzky, Tice, Ross, Burkett and Wolcott
will be recognized and their work contributes significantly to the
variety and quality of this show.
Almost all the photos are black-and-white. Most are reportorial and
some are atmospheric. Masterful views of great vistas, stunning studies
of natural textures and human interest views that accent day-to-day
life show photography to be a most expressive and vivid way to record
