Art Gallery of Hamilton Presents Becoming. Photographs from the Collection of John and Ginny Soule

The Art Gallery of Hamilton presents Becoming. Photographs from the Collection of John and Ginny Soule in an exhibition on view through January 15, 2012.

Becoming: Photographs from the Collection of John and Ginny Soule offers works that span the late 19th century to the present day, illustrating the hallmark styles of photography as it progressed through the 20th century. In its beginnings, photography was not considered a fine art form, but was in the process of becoming. Likewise, the collection of John and Ginny Soule is evolving, growing along with their passion for photography. On view are photographs by Jerry Uelsmann (American, b. 1934), Edward Steichen (American, 1879- 1973), Édouard Boubat (French, 1923-1999), André Kertész (Hungarian-American, 1894-1985), Heinrich Kühn (German-Austrian, 1866-1944), Frank Sutcliffe (British, 1853-1941), Horst P. Horst (German-American, 1906-1999), and contemporary Canadian pieces by Barbara Astman and Jesse Boles. Curated by Melissa Bennett.

The Art Gallery of Hamilton’s programming activities are assisted by the City of Hamilton, Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, and the Department of Canadian Heritage.
