Exploring Masters of Photography

Event Navigation

Monday, March 1
10:30 a.m. PT
Speaker: Cory Woodall, Assistant Curator

Explore sweeping landscapes, the documentary power of photography, and the history of the medium with Cory Woodall, Assistant Curator at the Museum, as she shares a virtual tour of the Masters of Photography exhibition. The exhibition showcases iconic images of famous photographers, including Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Gregory Crewdson, who are part of the important local collection of Cam and Wanda Garner. We will view and discuss the three sections of the exhibit, including Reflections of Nature, Things as They Are, and Manipulating Reality.

The Garners are longtime supporters to the Museum, having lent works from their collection to numerous Museum exhibitions and donated more than 300 photographs in the last ten years. The Garner collection includes more than 1,400 pieces of museum-quality photographs, mostly American 20th century, but including important contemporary work as well. Mr. Garner is also a passionate and talented photographer.
