Group f/64 and Imogen Cunningham

Group f/64 was a group of California photographers who promoted a style of sharply detailed, purist photography which was different than the soft focused Pictorialism that was prevalent at the time. Some of the founding members of Group f/64 were Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, and Willard Van Dyke. The ideas of the group influenced the direction of photography.

Currently on exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art, Botanicals : The Photography of Imogen Cunningham, featuring her black and white botanical photographs from the 1920s-1930s. Dave Ehrlinger, the Director of Horticulture of the San Diego Botanical Garden, will lecture on the Plants and Flowers of Imogen Cunningham on Saturday, April 23 at 2 pm as well. The exhibition continues through May 22, 2011. For more information, click here.
