Sacred Encounters

Sacred Encounters

New exhibition opening at the Monterey Museum of Art, featuring a number of our photographers including John Wimberly, Roman Loranc and Martha Casanave.

Ansel Adams and Our Time

Ansel Adams and Our Time

This exhibition of more than 100 works by photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984) places his work alongside contemporary environmentalist photographers and digital artists. Laid out in seven sections tracing Adams’ artistic development, the exhibition features some of his most-loved photographs, including images of Yosemite, San Francisco, and the American Southwest. Adams’ works are shown alongside prints by 19th-century landscape photographers, such as Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge, as well contemporary artists like Trevor Paglen, Will Wilson, and Catherine Opie. Their work engages anew with the sites and subjects that occupied Adams throughout his life — from national parks to the use and misuse of natural resources. Adams’s legacy continues to inspire and provoke, influencing how we envision the landscape and serving as an urgent call to preserve our environment.

Our America: A Photographic History

Our America: A Photographic History

We are excited to announce William Scott is one of the artist’s featured in Ken Burns’ new book, “Our America,” released on October 25, 2022.

From one of our most treasured filmmakers, a pictorial history of America – a stunning and moving collection of some of Ken Burns’s favorite photographs, with and introduction by Burns, and an essay by longtime MoMA photography curator Sara Hermanson Meister Burns has been making documentaries about American history for more than four decades, using images to vividly re-create our struggles and successes as a nation and a people. As much as anyone alive today, he understands the should of our country. In Our America, Burns has assembled the images that, for him, best embody nearly two hundred years of the American experiment, taken by some of our most renowned photographers and by others who worked in obscurity. We see America’s vast natural beauty as well as its dynamic cities and communities. There are striking images of war and civil conflict, and of communities drawing together across lines of race and class. Our greatest leaders appear alongside regular folks living their everyday lives. The photos talk to one another across boundaries and decades and, taken together, they capture the impossibly rich and diverse perspectives and places that comprise the American experience.
