LACMA presents A NEW PHOTOGRAPHY Exhibition showcasing the Marjorie and Leonard Vernon collection. See the light explores parallels between photography and the science of vision. October 27, 2013–March 23, 2014. Location: LACMA, resnick pavilion.
LACMA presents See the Light—Photography, Perception, Cognition: The Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection, an exhibition celebrating an extraordinary collection and exploring parallels between photography and the science of vision. Since the invention of photography in the late 1830s, the medium has evolved in relation to theories about vision, perception, and cognition. The exhibition takes a historical perspective, identifying correlations between photography and the science of vision during four chronological periods. See the Light is comprised of 220 works by more than 150 artists, including Ansel Adams, Julia Margaret Cameron, Imogen Cunningham, William Henry Fox Talbot, Edward Steichen, Edward Weston, Minor White, and many more.
The exhibition draws entirely from the Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection, a key collection within LACMA’s Wallis Annenberg Photography.
Definitely, a great event. If you have the chance, don’t miss it, Yareah friends!
