Modernist Photography

Modernist Photography Harold Cazneaux Sydney Bridge c1934 In Australia From approximately 1920 to 1970

Modernism sought to build a better future in the aftermath of World War I. As an international movement, modernism encapsulated the possibilities of the 20th century. It celebrated the romance of cities, the healthy body and the ideals of abstraction and functionalism in design. Modernist Photography is not simply a style but more of an attitude, a determination to break with the past and free the artist from the rules of convention and etiquette.

To better understand the Modernist approach to photography… Let’s first look at examples of modernist abstract art from around the world. Artists such as: • Piet Mondrian • Wassily Kandinsky • Kasmir Malevich • Vladimir Tatlin • Robert Delaunay Robert Delaunay Le manege de cochons 1922 Óleo sobre lienzo 250 x 250 cm Musee National d'Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, París

Photography • After World War 1, the photographic scene in Australia was shaped by modernist influences from abroad (Europe and later America). • The world was changing. • The goal was to express a modern life, a modern city. Max Dupain, Building the Opera House, Sydney 1962
