Photography as Propaganda

Photography as Propaganda

Politics and the Utopian Dream

Lumière

The exhibition illustrated how artistic expression and creativity can coexist with photography’s ability to abstract time and space, providing a potent vehicle with which to communicate a point of view.

Whether migrating a nation to a utopian social and economic order or framing public policy debates, the power of the photographic image was used effectively in the 20th Century by both totalitarian and democratic leaders.

This exhibition illustrated its’ power to inform and influence. It reminded us of the future impact potential of imagery to amplify ideas using an array of new electronic technologies.

Including photography by: Boris Ignatovich, Dorothea Lange, Yevgeny Khaldei, Peter Sekaer, Ivan Shagin John Gutmann, Alexandr Ustinov, Rondal Partridge, Max Alpert & Georgi Zelma

In recognition of #WorldKindnessWeek, we'd like to share a photograph by Al Clayton. His documentary photography is part of a history of artists whose work has helped shape policy and public perception of people in need.

In this post from our blog archives, we bring attention to a 70’s film by Thom Tyson about Wynn Bullock, documenting the artist and his philosophy in his own words.
