New American Documentary Photography

About

An informal grouping of 1950s and '60s American photographers who introduced a variety of new perspectives on documentary photography. Diane Arbus, Garry Winogrand, and Lee Friedlander introduced "snapshot" angles and concentrated on subcultures, as well as absurd and incendiary subject matter. At the same time, Stephen Shore and Robert Adams documented the changing American landscape, while William Eggleston broke ground with his use of color photography.
