There is a photography show at the Harn Museum in Gainesville, Fl which is one of the best I've ever seen. Besides this show, there are two full collections of work from various photographers which is permanently on display as a part of the Harn collection. It is a show well worth going to see. And best of all, it's free.

The Modern Impulse: Photography from Europe and America Between the Wars
October 09, 2012 - January 06, 2013
The Modern Impulse: Photography from Europe and America Between the Wars, reflects a moment when the 35 mm portable camera became the catalyst for a revolution in art, culture and the way we perceive the world. During a time of radical social and political change, this new camera became the tool of invention, poetry, analysis and social change.

A “new vision” of modern life spread throughout Europe and the United States. This single technology riveted the attention and collaboration of major international artists, a phenomenon that both foreshadows and greatly expands our understanding regarding the role of the internet and global art exchange in contemporary art.

The Modern Impulse includes more than 130 photographs, books, illustrated magazines and film. The exhibition focuses on four regions, France and the Czech Republic in Europe and New York and California in the U.S. and represents 40 artists such as Berenice Abbott, André Kertész, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Imogen Cunningham, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Jaroslav Rössler, Josef Sudek and Edward Weston.

I'll be down there for the winter second week in November. Gotta get up to Gainesville ASAP thereafter.

Thanks, Chris.
