Features ninety works produced from 1877 to 1998 by such celebrated photographers as Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Imogen Cunningham, and Dorothea Lange. These photographs provides insight into the ways artists documented the visual world during the twentieth century and furthered the creative uses of the medium by pushing the boundaries of traditional photographic practices. Organized to celebrate the anniversary of Target Corporation's initial donation in 1976 that allowed the MFAH to purchase a substantial collection of photographs and establish a photography department, the exhibition will travel to the Austin Museum of Art and the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi.
