LOOKING Ahead - 2006

Museum of Photographic Arts presents
April - July 2006

THE MUSEUM of PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS * 1649 El Prado San Diego CA 92101 (619) 238 7559

More than sixty years ago, a generation came of age under the yolk of the Great Depression, the rise of fascism, and a world war. Some joined the burgeoning field of the mass media that was just taking shape through new and revolutionary technology. Literally at their fingertips was a newer, faster means of communication through radio, talking pictures, newsreels, the 35mm camera, and the large picture magazine. With unprecedented speed, proximity, and realism, their images arrived in people's homes igniting imaginations and shaping public opinion.

In the spring of 2006, the Museum of Photographic Arts is mounting a museum-wide examination of the photographs, films, newsreels, and cameras from the late 1920s to mid 1950s that -- not unlike our Internet age -- changed the world.
The largest of these exhibitions celebrates the first women in photojournalism; Breaking the Frame: Pioneering Women in Photojournalism includes vintage photographs by Margaret Bourke-White, Esther Bubley, Thérése Bonney, Hansel Mieth, and the British and Russian photographers, Grace Robertson and Olga Lander, respectively. Rosie the Riveter had nothing on these women, whose entrée into the mass media helped shape our collective understanding of history then and now. Forging a point of view and way of life through an unprecedented move out-of-the-home and into a career that demanded courage, intelligence, and skill, their achievements were revolutionary. Two exhibitions will accompany Breaking the Frame. The first examines the actual 35mm cameras that came into being in the mid-1920s; the second celebrates the first photographs made with them by Erich Salomon, Robert Capa, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Martin Munkacsi, and Tim Gidal.
