Another outstanding display of some of the world's most important historical photographs, the Getty hosts OSCAR REJLANDER, Artist Photographer. Often referred to as the “Father of Art Photography,” Oscar G. Rejlander (British, Swedish, 1813-1875) has been praised for his early experiments with combination printing, his collaboration with Charles Darwin, and his influence on Julia Margaret Cameron and Lewis Carroll. Playful and unusual, Rejlander's work was collected by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to adorn the many royal residences with his innovative photographs. This is a must-see exhibit for anyone interested in the origins of the artistic use of photography, and how artistry supercedes the camera’s mechanical recording qualities.
In addition to Rejlander, we will also tour ENCORE, Reenactment in Contemporary Photography, a group exhibit exploring older works of art that put a new spin on original themes. Featuring works by Eileen Cowin, Christina Fernandez, Samuel Fosso, Yasumasa Morimura, Gillian Wearing, and more.
Please join us for a lovely day at the Getty Museum, including a no-host lunch at the Getty Cafe. Attendance limited to 15 members.
