The exhibit is paired with a world premiere of the video biography Martin Elkort: An American Mirror. Both events are coordinated by Elkort’s daughter, the Houston-based filmmaker Stefani Twyford, who made the documentary. “My father was part of a shift in American photography that gave rise to a close observation of human interaction now known as street photography,” she says via press materials. “I wanted to profile his unique body of work, and hopefully give a greater understanding of his and his peers’ influence on modern photography.”
