None of the photographs featured in Snapshots was ever intended to be art, they were simply taken to document an event in everyday life. Still, the uncanny similarity between what these nameless camera bugs have created and what we enjoy in a great picture is unmistakable. The Museum's determination to investigate the medium of photography as a critical part of visual culture is multi-faceted and this new book is one that will touch, thrill, and enchant.

The SF MoMA's commitment to photography dating back to 1935, continues with this inspiring publication.
