Group F/64

Featuring photographs by Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, John Paul Edwards, Alma Lavenson, Sonya Noskowiak, Brett Weston, and Edward Weston.

Group F/64 was a collective of early 20th-century Bay Area photographers who shared a modernist photographic style characterized by sharp-focused and closely cropped images seen through a particularly Northern Californian point of view. Featuring work from MCAM’s permanent collection, this student-curated exhibition examines the work of innovative photographers who pioneered straight photograph as an art form.
