This program offers insightful context for the exhibition Martin Munkacsi: Think While You Shoot! Munkacsi was famous in the 1930s and 1940s for his pioneering approach to photography, and his work had a major influence on Henri Cartier-Bresson, Richard Avedon, and others. Gand traces Munkacsi's development from his early period in Germany to his later life in the United States, chronicling his moves through sports, dance, fashion, and celebrity portraiture.
