Street Photography to Surrealism

The Golden Age of Photography in France, 1900-1945

Street Photography to Surrealism: The Golden Age of Photography in France, 1900-1945

Visit the streets, flea markets, shops, dance halls, and after-hours demi-monde of Paris in this exhibition that explores one of the most fascinating and creative periods in photography.
Featuring 16 photographers working in and around France before 1945, Street Photography to Surrealism includes key artists like Eugène Atget, Ilse Bing, Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Man Ray, who were foundational in spurring the rise of photography between the two world wars. Street Photography to Surrealism illustrates how these masters of photography (many working with the miniature Leica) pushed the boundaries of art and visually defined the way we picture European city life in the first part of the 20th century.

Collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. Organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.

Free admission. A timed ticketing system is in place and advance registration is recommended. Reserve tickets here.
