Salon Photography

Salon Photography: 1930's Exhibition Prints from the Collection of the Museum of Science & Industry, Chicago at Keith De Lellis Gallery. "...The salon system in place for the first half or so of the twentieth century was based on the camera clubs found in most major American cities (those in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh were among the best known and most prestigious) as well as in other countries such as Germany, England and France. Many of these clubs held annual salon exhibitions to which photographers from around the world would compete. The best work was exhibited in these salons, which were important events in the photo world and served as a major way for photographers to expose their work to fellow enthusiasts and the public at large."
