2010 Infinity Award: Publication
Sarah Greenough's Looking In: Robert Frank's "The Americans" provides a fascinating, in-depth examination into the making of what would become one of the great photobooks, using vintage contact sheets, work prints, and letters that chart the photographer's journey around the country in 1955–1956. Greenough is Senior Curator of Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, Washington where she has organized numerous exhibitions, including Alfred Stieglitz (1983), On the Art of Fixing a Shadow: 150 Years of Photography (1989),Modern Art and America: Alfred Stieglitz and His New York Galleries (2001), André Kertész (2005), and Irving Penn: Platinum Prints (2005). Greenough is the author of many publications, including Walker Evans: Subways and Streets (1991), Robert Frank: Moving Out (1994), Harry Callahan (1996), Alfred Stieglitz: The Key Set (2002), and All the Mighty World: The Photographs of Roger Fenton, 1852–1860 (2004) with Malcolm Daniel and Gordon Baldwin. Her exhibitions and publications have earned numerous honors, including an ICP Infinity Award in 1990 for the publication On the Art of Fixing a Shadow and the George Wittenborn Memorial Book Award in 2003 for Alfred Stieglitz: The Key Set.
