Photography: A Facet of Modernism.
Photographs from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.


Written by Van Deren Coke and Diana du Pont.
Hudson Hills Press, New York, 1987. 192 pp., 165 illustrations, including 9 color plates and 88 duotones, 9x12".

In this major book and exhibition originating at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, curator Van Deren Coke shows us the relationship between photographers and the major movements in modern art. Using diverse photographs from the museum's collection, Coke divides the work into four general categories: formalism, surrealism, expressionism, and post-modernism. Each photographer is discussed individually and their work is placed in an historical context. Photographers include Bruguière, Strand, Cunningham, Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy, Frank, Cartier-Bresson, Kertész, Weston, and Rodchenko, along with contemporary photographers Caponigro, Witkin, Uelsmann, Golden, Samaras, and Clark.
