DESCRIPTION

Organized in conjunction with New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape, this installation of the SFMOMA collection explores the concept of place in American photography and features work made from the 19th century to the present by Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, Timothy O'Sullivan, Joel Sternfeld, Alfred Stieglitz, and many others. Highlights include an installation of sculptures and photographs by William Christenberry and a selection of photographs from Wright Morris's series Home Place to mark the centenary of the photographer's birth.
