THE DAZZLING INSTANT
A WITTLIFF COLLECTIONS 25TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION
Presenting 95 images by 70 photographers, this Wittliff Collections anniversary exhibition was inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson, who wrote, “The photograph is a guillotine blade that seizes one dazzling instant in eternity.” Each photograph on display can be seen as a powerful or poetic moment, including such classics as Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico by Ansel Adams, Watching the Dancers by Edward Curtis, Portrait of the Eternal by Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Dorothea Lange’s “Migrant Mother,” and Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima by Joe Rosenthal. This exhibition also spotlights the 12 volumes in the Wittliff’s Southwestern & Mexican Photography Book Series published primarily by UT Press, with prints by Kate Breakey, Keith Carter, Graciela Iturbide, Jayne Hinds Bidaut, Josephine Sacabo, Rocky Schenck, Bill Wittliff, and others.
