Munkacsi's Lost Archive
International Center of Photography
01/16/2009 – 05/03/2009

Hungarian fashion photographer Martin Munkacsi (1896–1963) is best known for his dynamic images of athletes and models in motion. His unique style, developed in the context of 1930s photojournalism, required a combination of split-second timing and radical cropping. For Munkacsi, process was the key. The recent rediscovery of Munkacsi’s long-lost negative archive helps to expose his working methods and to illuminate the secrets behind his most famous images. Drawn from the collection of over 4,000 glass negatives recently acquired by the International Center of Photography, this exhibitions will include vintage and modern prints, and original negatives, many still in their boxes with Munkacsi’s handwritten annotations.
