The Roots of California Photography: The Monterey Legacy
Join us as we view this visually striking documentary film that chronicles the photographic heritage of the Monterey, CA region and pays tribute to some of the most important men and women in American photography—masters whose creative and technical visions changed the way the world views photographic art. Narrated by Jack Lemmon the film was produced by the Monterey Museum of Art in association with the University of California Santa Cruz Extension, Art and Design Department in 2002.
The film captures the contributions of photographers whose work shaped thinking not only about photographic style and techniques, but also art in general. It features Ansel Adams, Wynn and Edna Bullock, and the Westons—Edward, Brett and Cole—among others, whose work in the 1920s, ’30s and beyond taught the world new ways of seeing everything from simple everyday objects to California’s majestic forests and rugged coastline.
Join us for a six-part lecture series about the diverse and wonderful photographers of the Central Coast. Local experts will be featured in one-hour lectures about their chosen subjects. Visitors are welcome to bring food and drinks during this lunchtime lecture series.
