Press Event: The Art of the American Snapshot, 1888-1978: From the Collection of Robert E. Jackson
The range and creativity of amateur photography in the United States is revealed in approximately 200 anonymous works in the exhibition 'The Art of the American Snapshot, 1888–1978: From the Collection of Robert E. Jackson.' It is the first major exhibition, accompanied by a scholarly catalogue, to examine the evolution of snapshot imagery in America. The show begins with the invention of the Kodak camera in 1888 and extends through the 1970s, tracing a rich vocabulary of shared subjects, approaches, and styles.
