Nancy Newhall: A Literacy of Images

through Jan 25
20 Sep, 2008 - 25 Jan, 2009

As a writer, curator and photographer, Nancy Newhall, played an important role in promoting photography as a fine art.  Newhall worked closely with well-known photographers such as Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Helen Levitt and Edward Weston. Using her skills as designer, editor and collaborator, she helped shape the concept of the modern photographic book.  A Literacy of Images celebrates the 100th anniversary of her birth, exhibiting her photographs (many for the first time) and the work of her circle of friends.
