Often referred to as the “father of art photography,” Oscar G. Rejlander has been praised for his early experiments with combination printing, his collaboration with Charles Darwin, and his influence on the work of Julia Margaret Cameron and Lewis Carroll. This exhibition is the first major retrospective on Rejlander, highlighting new research and a selection of works brought together for the first time.

Exhibition remains open at the Getty Center until June 9th.
