The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from the Sir Elton John Collection

  • Tate Modern Bankside London, England, SE1 United Kingdom (map)

Elton John has one of the best private collections of twentieth-century photography in the world, which may come as a surprise if you thought he just spent his money on CDs and flowers. He's lending around 150 key images for this major Tate Modern show, which focuses on the decades 1920 to 1950, when photographers and artists started to use the medium in earnest to create truly modern visions of the world. Everything from documentary photography to abstraction will be on display. Among the major names on show are André Kertész, Tina Modotti, Dorothea Lange and Man Ray.
