> DESCRIPTION

Many American and European modernists chose to photograph beaches and deserts as an antidote to urban or industrialized landscapes. Artists Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1902-2002) and Edward Weston (1886-1958), among others, approached these different and yet strangely similar landscapes in many ways: they could be evocative settings with distinct historic and symbolic associations, or backdrops defined by their pure and stark visual textures. Approximately 20 photographs on display.
