DESCRIPTION

Face to Face explores one of the largest corporate collections of photography in the United States, illuminating the rich historical diversity of photographic portraiture. Curated from one of the leading corporate collections, Face to Face includes some of the earliest techniques, including a salt paper print from the 1840s by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, and a half-plate daguerreotype by Albert Southworth and Josiah Johnson Hawes. Other works include portraits by masters of the medium such as Yousuf Karsh, Lisette Model, Tina Barney, Rineke Dijkstra, Walker Evans and Richard Avedon.
