Photographer Art Sinsabaugh at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Art Sinsabaugh has long been admired by photographers, scholars and historians, but he's not as well known outside those circles. An exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art called American Horizons: The Photographs of Art Sinsabaugh tries to shine a new light on the photographer.

Kansas City, MO – An exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art called American Horizons: The Photographs of Art Sinsabaugh tries to shine a new light on the photographer with a display of more than 80 photographs, including two of Sinsabaugh's most celebrated series, his Midwest and Chicago landscapes of the 1960s, as well as later works from the 1970s and 80s.

KCUR's Laura Spencer met Keith Davis, Curator of Photography at the Nelson-Atkins, in the exhibition space recently to talk about the photographer and his overlooked status.
