  • Catalogue Essay

    Martha Hummer Bradley was an avid traveler and art enthusiast whose remarkable collection of contemporary photographs and prints includes some of the most revered artists in the world alongside lesser-known cutting edge practitioners working across media. She enthusiastically embraced photography’s transition from small-format black-and-white prints to vibrant, oversized tableaux and, having moved to London from the United States in the 1980s, championed a new generation of British photographers, including Steve McQueen, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Darren Almond. Color & Scale captures Hummer Bradley’s inclusive vision and celebrates her passion for art.
