Consuelo Kanaga

Consuelo Kanaga: An American Photographer
by William Maxwell
Publisher's Description
Consuelo Kanaga (1894-1978) was "a pioneer of social photography as well as a still-life and landscape photographer. . . . Her sensitive, compassionate portraits . . . form the centerpiece of the book. Equally riveting are her city views and still lifes in the vein of early modernism."--the publisher. Kanaga was a friend of Dorothea Lange, and like Lange she was inspired by her contact with poverty to create many of her finest pictures. In her later years, she was associated with Weston, Adams, Cunningham and the f.64 Group, and began photographing black Americans. This retrospective volume, published in association with the Brooklyn Museum, includes early work, portraits, still lifes, and landscapes.
