Imogen Cunningham

Mother's Days, 2002

Little Bear Press

In Mother’s Days, Little Bear Press presents rarely seen photographs by one of the most important, innovative photographers of the early 20th century, Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976). In this group of pictures, mostly taken during the 1920’s and 30’s, Imogen explores profound moments between her children and other family members. John Stevenson’s enlightening essay on the life of Imogen and how these photographs came to be published adds a personal sentiment to this intimate body of work. He says “While all of Imogen’s works express her exuberance and life-embracing vision, perhaps none do so more than the photographs she took of her own children They are a celebration of gentleness, beauty-and above all, love.” Mother’s Days: Imogen Cunningham is hard-cover, 86 pages, with 37 duotone plates. Limited first edition print run of 3,000.
