The Radical Eye with Sir Elton John and Nicholas Serota

Sir Elton John and Nicholas Serota take a tour of The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from the Sir Elton John Collection in a gallery walkthrough at the Tate.

Made up of over 70 artists and nearly 150 rare vintage prints on show from seminal figures including Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange, Tina Modotti, and Aleksandr Rodchenko, The Radical Eye collection presents an unrivalled selection of classic modernist images from the 1920s to the 1950s – a crucial moment in the history of photography.

    Ah so I finally understand why some of them are so small, it's because paper was in short supply during that time. Even more amazing to find this out! Thank you David Furnish!
    I find that the smaller photographs have such a beautiful tone and detail in them, even on a small format, it's really beautiful. There's a beauty in the tones and the papers' textures that it makes them absolutely timeless. It's wonderful. Thank you Tate Modern & thank you Sir Elton & David

    Does Elton buy photos directly himself or does he have an agent who helps him buy them? Photographer Dan Poush and I would like to sell our Johnny Cash photo collection, starting with the Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison concert, Jan. 13, 1968, through his Anaheim concert, March 1, 1969, plus a new national traveling photo exhibit of the prime photos that has been co-produced by ExhibitsUSA in Kansas City, Mo that presents a big money making asset for any future buyer. Elton, or any other major serious collector interested, can contact me in Stockton, CA at: Some of our exhibit photos may be viewed at: Outstanding video production. Thank you Elton for your interest in photo journalism!
