Documentary and Anti-Graphic Photographs


Julien Levy ran one of the most important galleries in New York in the 1930s & 1940s, "discovering" Joseph Cornell, and all in all pushing forward what would become the second wave of modern art. Like the Surrealists he showed, Levy had an early appreciation for photography, and in 1935 mounted a show of photographs by Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. The Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson has re-mounted the show, a few images of which are online.
