Experience more than fifty photographs in this first-ever comprehensive survey of the work of Nell Dorr (1893--1988), one of the most spiritual and empathetic photographic artists of the twentieth century. Dorr is known for dedicating much of her life to photographing mothers and their children.


Hi! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

I've not seen the show but I must say they appear oddly haunting, intimate and touchingly beautiful. Its so nice to see something new in a museum, and something that seems classic but not cliched.

"Mother and Child" has to be one of the most captivating, gripping, and truly beautiful photographs I've seen in a long time. The sheer simplicity combined with the most tender of moments between a mother and child is absolutely magnificent.
