For forty years, celebrated photojournalist Ed Kashi has delivered the world's stories through images that both imply, as well as directly show, humanistic challenges and joys. Abandoned Moments: A Love Letter to Photography (Kehrer Verlag) is a window into Kashi's unique voice and craft, and presents glimpses of ordinary life, as well as extraordinary events, struggles, and triumphs – the chaos of everyday life.
The images selected for Kashi’s book and exhibition span the decades of his work and were taken around the world. Shot entirely from the hip, Kashi flips standard photography conventions by snapping these "abandoned moments" without looking through the viewfinder, seeking to capture moments shaped by serendipity and instinct, rather than objectivity and intellect. “They are free to be less controlled but for that very reason they may be more certain and more certainly true,” Kashi explains about the evolution of his style and methodology.
Ed Kashi's photographs are included in the current exhibition "Imagine A World Without Photojournalism" on view through September 18, 2022.
