A Collective Invention at the Morgan Library & Museum is the debut of a newly implemented curatorial focus on photography. This collection features over eighty works which each have a subtle and relevent similarity from the piece it neighbors on the wall, from one photgraph to the next. There is a distinct and meaningful visual rhythm in this collection, appropriately titled Photographs at Play, and the extensive range of audience appeal cannot be ignored; images made by Alfred Eisenstaedt, to Robert Wiles, to Irving Penn. There is something for everyone in this exhibit, and simply, it's fun to view.
This exhibition runs until May 18th, 2014.
