Imogen Cunningham: On the Body
Imogen Cunningham: On the Body by Richard Lorenz
1998, Trade Paperback
"Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) was a pioneer of twentieth-century photography, a virtuoso whose brilliant images helped establish the medium as an art form. This book, the companion to Imogen Cunningham: Flora (1996) and Imogen Cunningham: Portraiture (1997), assembles her compelling and sometimes provocative figure studies."
"In an illustrated essay accompanying the plates, Richard Lorenz traces Cunningham's interest in the human form throughout her long career and shows that, even when influenced by the broad currents in photographic history, Cunningham maintained a powerful aesthetic independence. A chronology of Cunningham's life and a selected bibliography are included."
