The Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection of photography at LACMA
There is an outstanding exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art going on now.
It’s the See the Light—Photography, Perception, Cognition: The Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection.
Los Angeles residents Marjorie and Leonard Vernon began to collect photography in 1975, eventually building a collection of some 3,600 photographs spanning the entire history of the medium. In 2008 LACMA acquired the complete collection, making it possible for the museum to represent photography’s full range and its centrality in modern visual culture.
