Seen and Unseen, Imogen Cunningham

American photographer Imogen Cunningham was an extraordinary technician who produced deeply poetic work. In the 1930s she joined the West Coast Group f.64, which included Ansel Adams, Henry Swift, and Edward Weston. Instrumental in the struggle for the acceptance of photography as a legitimate art form, Cunningham was also a social activist, documenting the beat movement of the 1950s and the countercultural revolution of the late 1960s. Throughout her career, Cunningham valued the importance of light, form, and pattern in her compositions. Her pioneering use of platinum printing and often of double exposures are still of interest to contemporary photographers. Cunningham, who died in 1976, remains one of the most popular and innovative photographers in the history of the genre.
