Every gallery, at one time or another, seeks to put on a true showstopper of an exhibition. Compiling the finest of what they have available in their collection, Lumiere is currently exhibiting their “masters”.

These prints from the cameras of twenty different photographers include iconic images from the artists’ larger bodies of work. From California to New York … from Paris to Uzbekistan … they span a spectrum of themes: including urban structures, traditional landscape, portraiture, abstractions and social commentary.

The exhibition was also curated to underscore the importance of relationships and collaborations. Edward Weston with his sons, Brett and Cole – as well as Wynn Bullock; Ansel Adams with Al Weber and Pirkle Jones; and Jones with Dorothea Lange.

The artists: Berenice Abbott, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Alexander Rodchenko, Dorothea Lange, Georgi Zelma, Boris Ignatovich, Bill Brandt, Al Weber, Imogen Cunningham, Brett Weston, Tom Neff, Margaret Bourke-White, Andre Kertesz, Aaron Siskind, Arnold Newman, Pirkle Jones, Paul Strand, Edouard Baldus and Wynn Bullock have left a legacy that will inspire us for years.

There is also an online gallery available, so if travel plans to Atlanta are not in the works, take a look on Lumiere’s website.
