Illuminating the transition in Siskind's photographic oeuvre from social documentation to abstraction while also highlighting his influential role as a teacher, this catalogue surveys works produced by the celebrated American photographer (1903-1991) from 1937 to 1956, including images of street scenes in Depression-era Harlem and studies of natural and architectural forms. Features a critical discussion of Siskind's early documentary approach and an anthology of texts (most reprinted) dating from the 1940s to the 1970s, among them two interviews with the artist and a selection of his writings.
