The Photographs of Marcel Sternberger: Portraits of the 20th Century, consists of 40 images, including never before exhibited photographs of world-renowned luminaries such as Sigmund Freud, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, David Alfred Siqueiros, José Rubén Romero, Dorothy Norman, The Belgian Royal Family, Albert Einstein, the Shah of Iran, Indira Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, Myrtle Walgreen, and George Bernard Shaw. The New York Times called Sternberger's methodology "a unique blend of psychological and photographic techniques." He believed in and defined "The Psychology of Portrait Photography," using both research and personal experience to navigate the complex process of a truly successful portrait session. Whether it was of a politician, a coal miner, or a child, Sternberger's portraits evidenced spontaneity and captured subjects with clarity and insight.
