Lovers, New York, 1956

I had wanted to post some of Imogen Cunningham's calla lilies (many of which can be found in this gallery), but I stumbled upon an exhibition at the John Stevenson Gallery called Imogen in New York, which features the photo above. Compositionally it has elements characteristic of Cunningham's still lifes, portraits and nudes, suggesting some of the same fascinations, the hands for instance. The New York photos seem more direct to me somehow, if less urgent. More vibrant. Enjoy.
