The Radical Eye – Tate Modern
The Radical Eye exhibition is currently taking place in the magnificent Tate Modern in London. The modernist photography exhibition features almost 150 different prints from over 70 artists. The photographs are all from the classic modernist period of the 1920s – 1950s.
Throughout the exhibition one can find stunning portraits of Matisse and Picasso, as well as works that feature stunning Parisian landscapes, pictures taken in the Great Depression in America and much more. Throughout the exhibition one can also understand the development of innovation, in regards to altering the images through various processes. One I found to be the most interesting, was the pictures that when in the development phase was exposed to glimpses of light. This create and incredibly interesting illusion and depth in the photographs.
