The Museum of Photographic Arts has drawn from its permanent collection for the exhibition “The Photographer’s Eye: A Way Of Seeing” which interprets the groundbreaking book The Photographer’s Eye (1966) by John Szarkowski. “With his passing in July 2007, this exhibition acts as an homage to Szarkowski’s influential career. MoPA will use The Photographer’s Eye as a template from which to view over 120 photographs from its permanent collection, and celebrate the Museum’s 25th anniversary through a renewed commitment to collection.”
