      Photography and a Sense of Place

      Event Details:

      Photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston visited many of the same locations in the Western and Southwestern U.S., at times traveling together. They created some of the most iconic pictures of these locations, shaping how future generations perceive the places. Yet the photographs Weston and Adams made represent entirely different ways of seeing and experiencing these places. Photographer Mark Klett, Regents’ Professor of Photography at Arizona State University, also went to these locations and elsewhere to create a “third view” which provides perspective on earlier pictures. Klett comes to the Cantor, where he will be joined by Becky Senf, Curator of Photography at the Center for Creative Photography and the Phoenix Art Museum, to discuss how two giants of American photography understood the relationship between places and pictures of them.
