Imogen Cunningham, early feminist and master photographer, enjoyed a seventy-year career and fervently worked up until shortly before her death in 1976 at age 93. Both as a woman and an artist, Cunningham made some of the most outstanding historic contributions to fine art photography. Most known for her stunning close-ups of flowers ("Blumenformen"), Cunningham's first love was portraiture, from which she earned her living throughout most of her life. She also made great strides in nude photography, unfettered by the uproar caused by her first nude images in 1910.

Cunningham's daring and brilliant work helped establish photography as an art from. Becoming a photographer was a childhood dream that Cunningham pursued with passionate determination. During her career she photographed thousands of individuals, including a great number of celebrities, writers, and artists such as Herbert Hoover, Ansel Adams, Frida Kahlo, Man Ray, Gertrude Stein, and Cary Grant. Her style was unique, fired by a complex, sensitive, and imaginative vision and a never-ending desire to experiment (she never tired of trying alternative techniques, a favorite of hers being double exposure). Cunningham was not afraid to stand apart from the crowd, her sensual flowers and bold nudes- notably a nude of a pregnant woman from 1946, a photographic first- earning her great respect and admiration from her contemporaries, notably Edward Weston and Ansel Adams.

In preparation of a major exhibition of the works of Imogen Cunningham, the folowing has been said: 'Imogen Cunningham was born in Portland, Oregon, on April 12, 1883. One of her first photographs was a 1906 nude self-portrait, taken on an isolated spot on the UW campus with a 4"x5" mail-order camera. Cunningham established her own studio in 1910, becoming one of the very first professional woman photographers. She encouraged other women to join her, publishing an article in 1913 titled "Photography as a Profession for Women". On February 11, 1915, Cunningham married Roi Partridge, an artist himself and an artistic collaboration between them flourished. Together, they enjoyed exploring the local nature terrain and especially that of Mount Rainier, where she engaged him as a model in an extended series of the nude in the wilderness. The publication of these images created a local scandal and invited so much ridicule that Cunningham retired the negatives for more that fifty years. Imogen Cunningham continued to take pictures until shortly before her death at age 93 on June 24, 1976 in San Francisco.

Imogen Cunningham, Vintage and Signed Photographs are becoming a much sought after body of work by this genius of the camera. This monograph features rare photographs Cunningham shot and printed herself at the time of their conception, spans her enduring and miraculous seven-decade career, resulting in some of the most outstanding contributions to fine art photography. Even though her first love was portraiture, Imogen Cunningham is most known for her stunning close-ups of flowers and her uncensored celebration of the human form. A sensualist, Cunningham pushed boundaries, both as an artist and a woman. No stranger to the scandal her images evoked, she constantly defied limits.

Though there are many published portfolios of her work, this book remains one of the most eloquent collections of reproductions of her work. Richard Lorenz and Manfred Heiting offer insights into the work and the artist's amazing life. Grady Harp, November 11
