Boston exhibition: Lucien Aigner – Photo/Story

There’s an interesting historical exhibition of Lucien Aigner’s work opening January 29, 2011, at the DeCordova Museum located just outside of Boston. Aigner was a contemporary of Capa, Kertesz, and other early 20th century photojournalists and, like the others, his work covered a broad range of subjects from war to race to celebrity to prisons to portraiture to children. The subject of the exhibition is his style of pairing text with several prints, so-called ‘photo stories.’ The exhibition is curated by Jennifer Uhrhane and aims to shine a spotlight once again on one of the forgotten pioneers of photojournalism. This is the first major museum exhibition of Aigner’s work since the 1980s.
