Not only can you see Imogen Cunningham’s work on display in the Twin City, you can hear what the late photographer was like from one of her family members. Her granddaughter will share her own personal insights days before “Seen and Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham” concludes at Reynolda House Museum of American Art.

Meg Partridge will take part in gallery talks on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. She will screen her own short documentary “Portrait of Imogen” and answer audience questions on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Partridge grew up visiting her grandmother in San Francisco. Serving as the photographer’s assistant in her teens led to a deeper understanding of the artist’s life and work. Partridge now keeps her grandmother’s legacy alive as director of the Imogen Cunningham Trust.

Tickets to the events featuring Partridge start at $10. The exhibit is on display through Tuesday, June 3.
