A new online exhibition, curated by Alan Griffiths, has been added to Luminous-Lint showing how eggs have been incorporated into photographs.

“When you start with a portrait and try to find pure form by abstracting more and more, you must end up with an egg.”
Pablo Picasso
(Spanish Artist, 1881-1973)

Many thanks to all the museums, galleries, dealers and collectors who are supplying images for this exhibition.

With special thanks to:

William Coupon, Jefferson Hayman, Beth Hinrichs, T.O. Immisch (Stiftung Moritzburg), Jens Knigge, Mikhail Kudish, Anne Arden McDonald, Vik Muniz, Burton Pritzker, Ron Reeder, Franziska Schmidt (Villa Grisebach Auktionen GmbH), Vivienne Silver-Brody, David Spahr, Dick Swift, Maggie Taylor and Jerry N. Uelsmann

for additional photographs, information leads and advice.

If you can assist in locating images of eggs by Aenne Biermann, Hans Finsler, Walter Peterhans or other notable photographers not included in this exhibition I would be most appreciative. This exhibition will evolve as other intriguing examples appear and I'm particularly seeking 19th century examples.

Alan Griffiths

There is an online exhibition of this series on Luminous-Lint.
