One of the most significant photographers of the mid-20th century, Wynn Bullock (1902-1975) worked in the American modernist tradition alongside Edward Weston, Harry Callahan and Ansel Adams. More than 50 black-and-white and color works by Bullock will come together for the exhibition at the Viewpoint Gallery. 

A close friend of influential West Coast artists Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, and a contemporary of Minor White, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Imogen Cunningham and Frederick Sommer, Bullock created a body of work marked by a distinct interest in experimentation, abstraction and philosophical exploration. His images Let There Be Light and Child in Forest became icons in the history of photography following their prominent inclusion in Edward Steichen’s landmark 1955 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, The Family of Man.
