The Monroe Gallery of Photography presents its new exhibition titled “Vintage Photojournalism”, a major show of rare vintage prints from the 20th Century’s master photojournalists.
The exhibit features unique, one of a kind prints that were used to fill requests for reproduction in LIFE magazine and other major publications, many with important historic information inscribed and stamped on the verso (backside) of the photograph. By definition, a vintage print is a print made at or close to the time the photographer recorded the image onto the negative. Because these photographers were working on assignments for the next issue of a publication, the prints were frequently made within days of the negative and show evidence of the photographer’s or photo editor’s preferences for cropping, enlarging, or other directions. Although these images opened American eyes to the wonders of the world, many of these prints have never before been exhibited.
