"Nature and the Architect". Two years ago, the National Gallery of Canada
received an extraordinary donation of 252 exquisite photographs by Andreas Feininger, one of the greatest modernist photographers. Best known for his dynamic urban views of Manhattan and Chicago
, Feininger left a legacy on his 1999 death at 93 of 346 Life magazine photo-essays, thousands of photographs and more than 50 publications. Beginning last Saturday, until August 28, visitors to the NGC can enjoy 27 of these remarkable works in Gallery C202b.
..and remarkable they were! As a young aspiring photographer, Andreas Feiningerís photos were an inspiration to my generation of students.
