Modern Times sketches the spectacular and rampant growth of photography in the twentieth century, based on over 300 highlights from the Rijksmuseum’s photography collection. It revisits unique works by celebrated photographers, such as William Klein, Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Ed van der Elsken and Jacques Henri Lartigue, as well as surprising images by less well-known practitioners. Together they show the great changes that photography underwent in the twentieth century: the rise of amateur photography, photojournalism, colour photography, fashion and advertising photography and photography as an art form. The book presents an overview of twentieth century photography in all its facets, from pure documentary to autonomous art.
