Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings
June 30 – September 23, 2018
PEABODY ESSEX MUSEUM

I was fortunate to catch “Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings” on its last day at the Peabody Essex Museum back in September. I’d long admired her work in book form going back to my days at the Maine Photographic Workshop—where I briefly met her in 1986—but had never seen her work up on a wall in a gallery setting.

If you are able I would highly recommend seeing the exhibit at one of the other venues:

• The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, November 20, 2018–February 10, 2019

• The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, March 3–May 27, 2019

• Jeu de Paume, Paris, June 17–September 22, 2019

• High Museum of Art, Atlanta, October 19, 2019–January 12, 2020

In Memory of Alfred Stieglitz
(January 1, 1864 – July 13, 1946)

Alfred Stieglitz was an American photographer and modern art promoter who was instrumental over his fifty-year career in making photography an accepted art form. In addition to his photography, Stieglitz is known for the New York art galleries that he ran in the early part of the 20th century, where he introduced many avant-garde European artists to the U.S. He was married to painter Georgia O’Keeffe... http://www.surpluscameragear.com/surplus-camera-blog/in-memory-of-alfred-stieglitz/

Remembering, Walker Evans (3 November 1903 – 10 April 1975), an American photographer and photojournalist best known for his work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) documenting the effects of the Great Depression. He said that his goal as a photographer was to make pictures that are “literate, authoritative, transcendent”. http://www.surpluscameragear.com/surplus-camera-blog/remembering-american-photographer-walker-evans/

Remembering Edward Steichen: March 27, 1879 – March 25, 1973

Edward Jean Steichen was a Luxembourgish American photographer, painter, and art gallery and museum curator.

Steichen was the most frequently featured photographer in Alfred Stieglitz' groundbreaking magazine Camera Work during its run from 1903 to 1917. Together Stieglitz and Steichen opened the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession, which eventually became known as 291 after its address.

His photos of gowns for the magazine Art et Décoration in 1911 are regarded as the first modern fashion photographs ever published. From 1923 to 1938, Steichen was a photographer for the Condé Nast magazines Vogue and Vanity Fair while also working for many advertising agencies including J. Walter Thompson. During these years, Steichen was regarded as the best known and highest paid photographer in the world. In 1944, he directed the war documentary The Fighting Lady, which won the 1945 Academy Award for Best Documentary.

After World War II, Steichen was Director of the Department of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art until 1962. While at MoMA, he curated and assembled the exhibit The Family of Man, which was seen by nine million people.
