Tate Modern: The radical eye by Sir Elton John


Sir Elton John opens his collection to the public and shows photographic milestones from the classic modernist period of the 1920s-50s. Until 21st May 2017 you have the chance to see these masterpieces at Tate Modern, including works from Dorothea Lange, Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Tina Modotti, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Berenice Abbott, Edward Steichen and Man Ray. The gallery exhibits nearly 150 vintage prints, including a significant group of Man Ray portraits of personalities like Andre Breton, Max Ernst, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar. John also owns an astonishing collection of very intimate and personal images, like a portrait of Georgia O’Keeffe by her husband Alfred Stieglitz. When visiting the The radical eye, make sure to get an audio guide to hear exclusive background facts from Sir Elton John.
