Photography at MoMA: 1920 to 1960

Sale price £34.95 Regular price £50.00

As the second volume in a set of three books that together present a new and comprehensive history of photography through works from MoMA’s collection, this publication charts the medium during the height of the modernist period, from 1920 to 1960.

The Museum played a significant role in the development of this history, and in the construction of a canon that championed photography as an art form. 

The book begins with an in-depth introduction followed by eight chapters of full-colour plates, each introduced by a short essay. Masterworks by photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Dorothea Lange, Man Ray and Aleksander Rodchenko appear alongside lesser-known gems.
