Benson prints on exhibit at MoMA

A current exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City focuses on the work of Richard "Chip" Benson, MacArthur Fellow, faculty member in photography since 1979, and dean of the school from 1996 to 2006. The exhibition is linked to MoMA's recent publication of Benson's book The Printed Picture, and features some 75 examples of original work on which the book is based, including early woodcut etchings, engravings, and photographic prints. The Printed Picture is on view through June 1, 2009, with an audio guide written and narrated by Benson himself. (For an excerpt from the book, see Object Lesson.)
