Photographs From The 1920's
If any period can be said to have encompassed the full potential of photography
it would have to be the era between the two World Wars.
Some 80 years after the medium first appeared, photographers
and their patrons discovered forms and uses for camera images
that imbued them with exceptional
inventiveness and immediacy. Photography was not only enriched by expanded
roles in journalism, advertising,
and publicity, but it was nourished also
by acceptance within avant-garde movements in the
graphic arts. In fact, it might with justice
be claimed that except for holography all later
directions were foretold during this period.
