Photography’s evolution as an art form has been influenced b y countless individuals\, thematic styles\, and chemical processes. Initial ly\, photography was used largely to document what surrounded or intrigued the public eye. As more individuals began using cameras\, the idea grew tha t photography could be a form of art in addition to a form of documentation . This captured the attention of many artists\, most notably Alfred Stiegli tz\, who formed the Photo Secession and helped establish Pictorialism.

\ n

The 30 photographers included in this exhibition have extensive histori es that span thematic periods and artistic styles. Taking their cues from M aster Photographers like Edward Steichen\, artists such as Berenice Abbott and Manuel Alvarez Bravo built on that foundation in order to explore the v ery art of photography. Utilizing their cameras\, they created a new\, mode rn vision for photography with a revised understanding of the camera and it s capabilities. No longer tied to a pictorial past\, these artists\, and ot hers\, gave photography its own unique definition as an art form based sole ly on its ability to capture and create striking images. As a result\, they too are considered Master Photographers.
