Shadows of a Fleeting World: Pictorial Photography and the Seattle Camera Club

11 Jan

Henry Art Gallery, February 12 – May 8, 2011.

Shadows of a Fleeting World presents a comprehensive picture of an important yet obscure moment in the cultural history of the past century. In the period between the World Wars art photography was a popular endeavor, with numerous practitioners who reached a wide audience. Amateur and professional photographers gathered together in camera clubs and other organizations in innumerable cities around the globe, encouraging creative work among their members and sponsoring exhibitions that were open to the public. Many of these showings were preserved in books, journals, and other publications that helped to transmit these activities to a broader viewership.
