Masterworks of Photography from the Permanent Collection of the Lamar Dodd Art Center

August 08 through November 01, 2020

On view in Goldman, Richard, and Rushton Stakely Galleries

 

During his tenure as Director at the Lamar Dodd Art Center of LaGrange College, photographer John D. Lawrence formed one of the largest and most significant college museum collections of twentieth-century photography in the Southeast.

Masterworks of Photography gathers 50 images from this collection to highlight the ingenuity of photographers working throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. The exhibition features many of the great practitioners of the medium including Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Sally Mann, Aaron Siskind, Alfred Stieglitz, and Gary Winogrand, among others. Their landscapes, abstractions, portraits, and still lifes, created primarily in black and white, help chart a history of photography.

Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts in partnership with the Lamar Dodd Art Center, LaGrange College, Georgia.
