Part Two: “Group f.64” at The Light Factory
Join us for a conversation about the work of photographer Ansel Adams and his contemporaries. This group of artists was known as “Group f.64” for their modernist vision and style and includes Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Willard Van Dyke, and Brett Weston. Some of their work is on display now at The Light Factory.
