Recollection: Thirty Years of Photography at The New York Public Library
Recollection: Thirty Years of Photography at The New York Public Library. "...Henri Cartier-Bresson compared portraits to a visual reverberation, in which 'the people come back to you like a silent echo. A photograph is a vestige of a face, a face in transit.' His definition of portraiture (appealing to themes of recall, repetition, and return) also applies more generally to photography itself, describing a medium that has been repeatedly renegotiated over its short history, whether in terms of mechanical reproduction, documentary evidence, or as an independent art. Recollection, along with its online multimedia presentation, celebrates thirty years of photogaphy at The New York Public Library."
