As photography has only been accepted as art in recent decades, the pantheon of seminal photographers is relatively limited. Yet curators, writers, dealers, and collectors are constantly discovering (or "rediscovering") wonderful, innovative work that somehow never reached a broad audience or was noticed and subsequently forgotten. Our panelists will each show the work of one such artist whom they feel deserves serious attention and acknowledgement. This will be followed by a discussion of why and how artists can (still) fall through the cracks.
