The Majestic and The Mundane: Landscape Photographs by Ansel Adams and Lewis Baltz
Oct 01, 2011 – Feb 26, 2012Photography Gallery
Ansel Adams and Lewis Baltz occupy opposite ends of the landscape-photography spectrum. Adams’s works feature sublime views of national parks. Baltz turned his camera on a fair more prosaic subject: a wasteland littered with trash. This exhibition explores each artist’s different photographic perspectives as well as their concern for the environment.
Curated by Sarah Eckhardt, VMFA Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
