Presenting a selection of recent and promised gifts from collectors James and Cherye Pierce, Photogenic celebrates the monumental impact of the Pierces’ longtime support of the museum’s renowned photography collection as well as their dedication to collecting photography for almost 50 years. A wide range of works are represented, including vintage prints, a distinguished selection of floral photography, and art by contemporary New Orleans–based artists. Additionally, Photogenic emphasizes artists using innovative, alternative photographic processes and the Pierces’ collection of platinum prints—many of which were commissioned by the Honolulu-based collectors. Featured artists include Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Stieglitz, Imogen Cunningham, Jerry N. Uelsmann, Kenneth Josephson, Carrie Mae Weems, Daidō Moriyama, Binh Danh, Dan Tague, and Josephine Sacabo, among many others.
