Gallery Talk: Group f/64

Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Cost: $10 per person | $8 for Museum Members

Join Benita VanWinkle, High Point University associate professor of visual arts, in this gallery talk that introduces Group f/64, a collective of American west coast photographers that decided it was time for a change away from the pictorialist soft focus, or hand-manipulated movement of photography.

Group f/64 emphasized the concept of “pure photography” which was uniquely about the concept of a photographic standard of detail through the smallest aperture of a lens, something that could not be duplicated by any other art medium.

Among the leaders of this movement were Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Willard Van Dyke, who first proposed the idea of working together to promote their collective aesthetic vision.
