RIP: John Szarkowski

He was also a brilliant landscape photographer, though most of his photography remained concealed from public view throughout most of his career. In 2005, many of his prints were displayed for the first time in solo exhibitions, and later in a 2006 retrospective at MoMA. A series of mostly rural and some urban views, Szarkowski's own lens shows, as his writing often told, what it means to look at a lived landscape and how a lifetime and history can be told through a single lens.
