DESCRIPTION

Ansel Adams and Lewis Baltz occupy opposite ends of the landscape-photography spectrum. Adams’s works feature sublime views of national parks. Baltz turned his camera on a fair more prosaic subject: a wasteland littered with trash. This exhibition explores each artist’s different photographic perspectives as well as their concern for the environment.
