Imogen Cunningham — was an internationally recognized American Modernist photographer whose career spanned most of the 20th century. The exhibition opens Feb. The exhibition is curated by Abigail Susik, Assistant Professor of Art History at Willamette University, and author of the illustrated exhibition brochure. The survey includes 33 photographs and archival material drawn from the Imogen Cunningham Trust as well as recent additions to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art collection. Four Willamette University undergraduates acted as curatorial assistants for the exhibition. We want to draw attention to the fact that one of the quintessential artists of international Modernism found her initial professional support and artistic inspiration right here, in the Pacific Northwest — and that even after achieving far flung success, she remained firmly rooted in this region and ever enamored of its charms.
I was made fun of at that time, when I photographed in , my husband nude on Mount Rainier. In that one that I personally called The Fawn, he actually was sitting on a cake of ice, on that little lake. He chose the spot, and it was very nice. Of course they were not acknowledged as being a nice ladylike job, I was condemned, by the newspaper, a well-known publishing company in Seattle, and they called me an immoral woman.
Imogen Anthony left little to the imagination in a series of photos posted to Instagram on Sunday. The socialite, who captioned the stunning shoot, 'hands', appeared makeup free as she pulled sultry faces for the camera. Holding up her hands to the lens at times, she appeared to be posing in a classic 'no pictures please' stance. In each frame, she perched on luxurious bedding, arranging her impressive figure in alluring poses.
Imogen and Twinka at Yosemite is a photograph by Judy Dater. It is considered Dater's most popular photograph and according to the photographer, was inspired by Thomas Hart Benton's painting Persephone , which portrays a voyeur observing a nude woman reclining against a tree, who had been bathing in a stream. Dater had been familiar with Benton's Persephone painting and its theme of voyeurism since her childhood, and it inspired her to attempt several earlier photos based on that theme.
