Each fall for the past fourteen years, the New Photography series has presented significant bodies of contemporary work. The series is designed to highlight individual achievements in photography rather than to summarize movements and trends. Nevertheless, over time it has consistently reflected a broad variety of styles and approaches. Since 1985, fifty-seven artists from twelve countries have presented their work in this forum.

This year New Photography 14 features Jeanne Dunning, Olafur Eliasson, Rachel Harrison, and Sam Taylor-Wood. Their work presents four diverse strains of photography being made today, from large-scale panoramas to images encapsulated in objects. But the artists themselves have something in common: all are active in other mediums. Both Dunning and Taylor-Wood produce videos; Eliasson creates installations; Harrison is a sculptor. Thus their work in photography is nourished by their other artistic endeavors.

Organized by Darsie Alexander, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography.

New Photography 14 is made possible by Banana Republic.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
