Constantin Brancusi the Photographer features a selection of 30 modern prints from the original photographs taken by the artist. At his death in 1957, Brancusi left behind over 560 negatives and more than 1,000 photographs taken by himself. The images show the intimate space of his studio and illustrate aspects of his creation.
According to a widely circulated anecdote, Brancusi decided to photograph his works while attending a photo session during which he noticed that a bronze sculpture had lost its shine. When asked what happened to the work in question, the photographer candidly replied that, in order to get a better shot, he had to diminish the brightness of the bronze by powdering it. The artist threw the photographer out, and from that moment on began to photograph his works himself. In 1921, Man Ray, famous for his contribution to avant-garde photography, became his teacher. „
