Muray exhibit continues in Pera
Renowned as the most successful portrait and fashion photographer of New York in the 1920s, American-Hungarian photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) revolutionized photography with his use of natural color photography in advertising in the 1930s.
For the first time ever, Muray’s photographs can be seen at the Pera Museum in an ongoing exhibition until April 21. Curated by Salomon Grimberg, the exhibition brings together Nickolas Muray’s photographs in a retrospective.
Collected from George Eastman House, the famous photography archive in the US, the Nickolas Muray Archive, under the direction of the Muray family, and various private collections, this selection gives an overview of Muray’s career, spanning nearly 50 years.
