The invention of the first easy-to-operate Kodak camera in 1888 made photography a popular practice, and several artists eagerly began taking snapshots. The Indianapolis Museum of Art's latest exhibition, Snapshot: Painters and Photography, Bonnard to Vuillard, examines the role of photography in the lives and work of painters in the Post-Impressionist era. The exhibition features the work of seven such artists, presenting 200 rarely seen photographs alongside 60 of the paintings, prints, and drawings for which they are best known.
In connection with the exhibition, the IMA launched an online photography competition encouraging museum visitors, as well as those generally interested in photography, to submit their own snapshots for the chance to win a prize. The competition ended on September 3, 2012. Click here to see the list of winners.
