Lida Moser: A Lens Without Limits

The Photography of Lida Moser
Opening Reception: Friday, March 2, 5:00pm–7:00pm

Those of you who know me well, or who read my words here and there, know what a great follower of the great Lida Moser I was, am will forever be... tomorrow a fantastic exhibition by Lida opens at Dickinson College:
This exhibition considers the work of New York City commercial photographer and photojournalist Lida Moser (1920–2014). She is best known for her pioneering work documenting the City from its post-war era up through the gritty 1970s. Moser first worked as an assistant in Berenice Abbott's studio and later moved on to a solo career, gaining assignments from a number of leading publishers, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Esquire magazines. She was a member of the Photo League and the New York school of photography and produced portraits of many of the leading cultural figures of the second half of the century.  
The Trout Gallery maintains a large collection of the works by Lida Moser and is the first to survey her extensive photographic work. This project is produced through the generous cooperation of the artist's estate. 
This exhibition is curated by senior art history majors Jacqueline Hochheiser, Kate Marra, and Monica Skelly, under the direction of Elizabeth Lee.
