Frederick Sommer

Frederick Sommer (1905-1999) “Situating his photography within a wider artistic practice that included poetry, drawing and painting, Sommer pushed the boundaries of photography’s subject matter. He moved from finding things to photograph to creating things for the camera, a method that has great resonance with contemporary photography.”
