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.
