IMOGEN CUNNINGHAM 1883-1976 Text by Richard Lorenz
Imogen Cunningham 91883-1976) made some of the most outstanding historic contributions to fine art photography. Most known for her stunning close-ups of flowers (“Blumenformen”). Cunningham’s first love was portraiture, from which she earned her living throughout most of her life.
During her career she photographed thousands of individuals, including a great number of celebrities, writers, and artists such as Herbert Hoover, Ansel Adams, Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, Gertrude Stein and Cary Grant. She also made great strides in nude photography. Cunningham’s daring and brilliant work helped establish photography as an art form, her sensual flowers and bold nudes earning her great respect and admiration from her contemporaries, notably Edward Weston and Ansel Adams.
