Imogen Cunningham Statement


Artist Statement
Imogen Cunningham is one of this century's greatest women photographers as well as a pioneer in the history of photography. Born in 1883 in Portland, Oregon, her career lasted until her death at the age of 93 in 1976. She began working with Edward Curtis in 1907 and then opened her own portrait studio in Seattle in 1910. Her work developed from pictorial imagery influenced by such photographers as Gertrude Kasebier to the sharply focused modernist images she produced while in association with Group f/64, a group she established with Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Willard Van Dyke and others. Throughout her distinguished career, Cunningham continually explored her fascination with botanicals, portraiture and the nude.
