Aaron Siskind

A pioneer in expressionist photography. He is the most compelling example of the shift in photography from social documentation to abstraction. His understanding and perception of the world was purely conceptual. He sought meaning in mostly inanimate forms he observed around him; blurring the lines between photography and painting.

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving...it remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything." Aaron Siskind
