Do You Want to Take My Picture?

The Museum of Art|Fort Lauderdale is putting on a blockbuster exhibit of photography. “The Art of Caring: A Look at Life Through Photography” exhibits 200 pictures spanning 60 years. Each one is a portrait of a key moment in human life. The photos are divided into seven categories, from “disaster” and “aging” to “love,” and the exhibit opens with pictures handpicked by Annie Liebowitz for their momentousness. Her work appears alongside that of Alfred Eisenstadt, Eugene W. Smith, Margaret Bourke-White (the first woman allowed to take pictures in a war zone), and other of the world’s most famous photojournalists and contemporary masters. In other words, these are some of the best photographs taken by the best photographers assembled in one place.
