SEEING STRAIGHT: THE F.64 REVOLUTION IN PHOTOGRAPHY. Ed. by Therese Thau Heyman. Oakland Museum, 1992. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 168 pp. with 124 ills. 31 x 25 cm. LC 92-60753 ISBN 029597219X In English.
Presents reproductions of 81 photographs produced mainly in the early 1930s by Ansel Adams, Edward and Brett Weston, Alma Lavenson, Imogen Cunningham, Willard Van Dyke and five other members of Group f.64, a short-lived association of San Francisco-area artists who repudiated the tenets of pictorialism to pioneer "straight photography," producing elegantly precise images of natural forms and everyday objects as well as landscapes and portraits. In addition to an anthology composed of writings by the artists and several contemporary critical responses to their works, the catalogue features three essays discussing the formation and activities of the group, its significance to the development of Adams's style, and its relationship to trends in Modernist photography in Europe and the United States.
