Timeless, Still: Photographs from Muybridge to Warhol

Barbara Morgan: Martha Graham-Letter to the World, 1940
Oct 02, 2010 - Dec 12, 2010
Eisenberg Gallery

Many great photographers have memorably captured movement or singular moments in time. Others have skillfully used the camera to create intriguing studies from nature or a still-life composition. This exhibition, which presents approximately 30 photographs drawn primarily from the Zimmerli’s holdings, explores notions of stillness and considers how images shot years ago seem timeless to today’s viewers. 

Organized by Marilyn Symmes, Director of the Morse Research Center for Graphic Arts and Curator of Prints and Drawings
