50th anniversary of 1967’s “New Documents”

#tbt in honor of the 50th anniversary of 1967’s New Documents. This modestly scaled exhibition, featuring work by three (then) young and relatively unknown photographers named Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand, had a lasting influence on modern photography. As curator John Szarkowski explained in his introduction to the exhibition, the three represented a new generation of photographers with markedly different aims than those of their hortatory predecessors of the 1930s and 1940s: they had “redirected the technique and aesthetic of documentary photography to more personal ends. Their aim has been not to reform life but to know it". The exhibition established all three photographers as important voices in American art; their achievements continue to encourage more nuanced understandings of the medium. In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the Museum is publishing Arbus, Friedlander, Winogrand: New Documents, 1967 by curator Sarah Meister, who will also introduce a public conversation between artists Max Kozloff, Tod Papageorge, and Martha Rosler next Monday, February 27th.
