Seizing the Moment: The Evolution in Action Photography External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Evolution of Action Photography will feature never before seen images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection along with work by contemporary photographers, showing the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective. The Havemeyer Collection includes gelatin silver prints by early 20th-century master marine photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by others. ///// Levick and Rosenfeld pushed the limits of the photographic medium, capturing exciting, point-of-view images over a nine-year span. Levick’s work often placed the viewer squarely on deck, seemingly as part of the action, while Rosenfeld worked for Levick before he opened his own studio in 1910. ///// This one of a kind maritime collection was donated to The Mariners’ Museum in 2015 as a significant gift in memory of Horace Havemeyer III, a native of New York and an avid sailor. Havemeyer’s grandfather purchased these photographs from Levick; and over the years, they were passed down to his son and then grandson, Horace III, who founded Metropolis magazine in 1981. He served as its president until his death in 2014. His wife, Eugenie C. Havemeyer, is now at the helm of this publication, which is considered the vanguard of architecture and design today.
