Vero Beach Museum of Art
September 16, 2017 - January 14, 2018
Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother - Nipomo, California,
Marion Post Wolcott’s Winter Visitors from Nearby Trailer Park, Picnicking Beside Car on Beach, Near Sarasota, Florida,
and Ansel Adams’ Monolith, the Face of Halfdome, Yosemite National Park, California.
The tonal beauty and subtle surfaces of these traditional photographic prints, developed in the darkroom, set this exhibition apart.
“Many of these are vintage prints, made by the photographer very close to the time the negative was made, or late prints made by the photographer or assistant years later,” comments Rachael Arauz, Ph.D., independent curator for the exhibition.
Masters of American Photography is organized by the Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania.
