In 1932 an energetic alliance of San Francisco Bay Area photographers burst upon the art world,
demanding local attention and looking beyond to the East Coast. These westerners were part of the Modernist aesthetic revolution that was redefining photography, finding a new way of seeing. Their style became known as straight photography.

GROUP f.64: Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, and the Community of Artists Who Revolutionized American Photography
(published by Bloomsbury USA hardcover; ISBN 978-1-62040-555-0; $35.00; 400 pages)

“A future classic in the history of American photography, here is the gripping story of a group of extraordinarily talented Bay Area photographers who created community for themselves in the midstof the Great Depression—and how from that community emerged a body of work stunning to this day in its bold advance of photography as fine art.”
—Kevin Starr, University of Southern California

“A fascinating and inspiring narrative, f.64 reveals both the personal and professional struggles and triumphs of an extraordinary group of photographers who changed the course of twentieth-century photography. Richly detailed and critically insightful, this is a ground breaking, major work of scholarship.”
—Peter C. Bunnell, McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art Emeritus, Princeton University

“A precise, vivid and highly readable account of a pivotal but little understood chapter of American photographic history. Mary Alinder’s extensive research paints a lucid picture of the intricate relationships and vibrant creative exchanges that mark Group f.64 as one of the most significant episodes in 20th century American visual culture.”
—Julian Cox, Founding Curator of Photography and Chief Curator, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

Mary will autograph your copy of the first full book on Group f.64. ($35 + shipping and tax in CA)

Ansel Adams

Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico

Negative made 1941, gelatin-silver print made by the artist 1960s
signed by the artist on right recto of mount, artist's Carmel studio stamp on verso of mount
15-1/2 x 19-1/2-inch print size, dry mounted to museum board
framed to 24 x 30-inches with ultraviolet filtering Plexiglas.
Excellent Condition

For many, Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico is the greatest photograph ever made. Step into
the picture. We are standing on the shoulder of Highway 84, a two-lane blacktop some thirty
miles from Santa Fe. Under the last light of day we see the village of Hernandez, nestled
among the tree-lined banks of the Rio Chama flowing to meet the Rio Grande.
Sage covers the ground. Burning piñon drifts its warm, woodsy fragrance from chimneys.
It is plain to see that the builders of Hernandez had reverence for God and for the earth.
The rounded adobe walls of their sanctuary, San Jose del Chama, and of
their homes were extracted from the ground beneath their feet.
Ansel's performance of the Moonrise negative evolved through the years as he worked to
achieve greater detail and drama. From his study of music, Ansel often employed the simile
that the negative is like the score in music and each print is a fresh performance of that score.
Ansel's 1960s prints like this one, give some hint of clouds in the blackened heavens
especially the one thick ribbon settled behind the Truchas Mountains that glows with
glorious light. This print is an outstanding performance of Adams' iconic masterpiece.

Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River
Yosemite National Park High Country, California
Very Rare Mural Size Photograph

Negative made 1940, gelatin-silver mural print made by the artist 1960s, 32 x 32-inch print size
archivally framed to 37 x 37 inches with Optium ultraviolet filtering Plexiglas.

Waterwheel Falls is the most unique waterfall in Yosemite. During high waterflow an extraordinary phenomenon appears as the raging water hits a series of ledges creating a plume, this coupled with strong gust blowing upward create cyclical "waterwheel" effect hence the name. On a good day these waterwheels can reach heights of 30 feet. The mural is believed to be unique and is shown here in its elegant frame.
A very special and abstract image.
