Imogen Cunningham: Ideas Without End: A Life in Photographs
Synopses & Reviews
From bold, evocative nudes to starkly beautiful still lifes, Imogen Cunningham's pioneering work has garnered worldwide acclaim. One of the first women to make her living as a photographer, Cunningham consistently experimented with a wide range of techniques during her remarkable career. Ideas without End offers the first complete retrospective of 100 of her photographs — the majority of which have never been published — from her earliest efforts at the turn of the century to the many now-famous images. A biographical essay by Richard Lorenz, a chronology of Cunningham's life and work, and a bibliography are also included in this superb collection, at once a beautiful portfolio and an enduring tribute to a gifted and compelling artist.
Book News Annotation:

The text chronicles the artist's friendships with other artists and other personal details, though the volume is dominated by the photographs.
