This exhibition centers on the reimagining of iconography in American photography after 1945, when exaggeratedly idealized landscapes were replaced by everyday imagery that had previously been considered unworthy of portrayal. Some photographers captured the dynamic of big cities through a spontaneous pictorial language that often portrayed American society in a critical light. And, in a contrasting approach, others staged elaborate cinematic tableaux that grappled with photographic reality and illusion as well as with societal developments. Work by Richard Avedon and Gregory Crewdson is included.

In spring 1979, Richard Avedon went to the Rattlesnake Round-Up in Sweetwater, Texas, and created six evocative portraits that would set the tone for his work of the next five years. In these settings, he discovered people who conveyed through their faces, clothes, and postures not merely hard living but the full embrace of existence, which is evident in this selection of seventeen of the project’s Texas images.
