On August 11 the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York opened the exhibit "Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham." It is on view through October 14.
The photographs of Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) reflect vital developments in 20th century art and photography. She is recognized for helping to establish photography as an art form. Never tied to one style of photography or subject, Cunningham had a signature view in what she created. Working for over seventy years, her photographs are seductive and dynamic and inspired by a multitude of sources.
