"New Documents" curated by John Szarkowski An exhibition of 90 photographs by three leading representatives of a new generation of documentary photographers--Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander and Garry Winogrand--will be on view at The Museum of Modern Art from February 28 through May 7(1967). John Szarkowski, Director of the Department of Photography, writes in his introduction to the exhibition, "In the past decade this new generation of photographers has redirected the technique and aesthetic of documentary photography to more personal ends. Their aim has been not to reform life but to know it, not to persuade but to understand. The world, in spite of its terrors, is approached as the ultimate source of wonder and fascination, as less precious for being irrational and incoherant."
