Artificial Light: Flash Photography in the Twentieth Century
Flash photography gained widespread use in the 1920's with the invention of the mass-produced flashbulb. The images sported a garish, otherwordly and strangely captivating feel that was embraced by artists such as Mark Cohen, William Eggleston and William Klein. This exhibit highlights some of the diverse ways the technique was put to use.
