The Museum of the Swiss Abroad in Geneva will hold an exhibition of the work of Peter Knapp from July 11th through November 9th. The focus of the exhibition will be Knapp’s photographs of women, whom he photographed for 50 years on commission, notably for ELLE magazine, and for more personal work. His photographs reflect not only the story of film photography and technical innovations—he was the first to use a Rotoflex camera and wide angles for fashion photography—but are part of the artistic history of the second half of the 20th century.
