Art Viewing Adventures: Bay Area Photographer Imogen Cunningham (Virtual)
Mon February 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Imogen Cunningham was an innovative photographer based in San Francisco, known for her stunning photographs of botanicals, nudes and industrial landscapes, and captured noted portraits of fellow artists including Ruth Asawa, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
As a member of the influential “f/64” group of photographers in the Bay Area, alongside Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, Cunningham sought to capture very sharp images and present the world as it is. By the time she was 90, Cunningham was considered an iconic artist in feminist circles. Having had retrospectives and books devoted to her, she was admired for having ascended to a rank historically reserved for straight white men.
Anna Ewins returns to our program to showcase the epic span of Cunningham’s career. Audience members will be encouraged to share their reactions to these photographs and think about the central role she played for many years in the San Francisco art scene.
