Best known for his modernist paintings and prints, Ralston Crawford (1906-78) maintained an intensive interest in photography throughout his career, using the camera as a tool of both documentary and artistic expression. Some of his photographic images served as the basis for paintings and prints, but many more were made for their own sake. Capturing a wide variety of subjects, the 130 images here include trains, junkyards, docks, Egyptian ruins, Spanish bullfights, semi-abstract industrial forms, and the vibrant street life and musical culture of New Orleans.
