Movie Series #3: John Szarkowski: A Life in Photography (48 minutes)

For nearly thirty years, from 1962 to 1991, John Szarkowski served as Director of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. As organizer of more than 100 exhibitions - including landmark shows of the work of Andre Kertesz, Walker Evans, Jacques-Henri Latrigue, Gary Winogrand, Diane Arbus, William Eggleston, and a four-book project devoted to Eugene Atget...he taught several generations how to think about and look at photographs.


Examining his double life as both curator and photographer, a career he abandoned and recently returned to with the publication of Mr. Bristol's Barn, this is a documentary on the man who helped establish photography for the first time as a true and different kind of art.
