From February 1-April 14, 2017, the University of Maryland Art Gallery presents Wynn Bullock: Revelations, the first major survey of photographer Wynn Bullock’s (United States, 1902-1975) work in nearly 40 years.
Bullock is regarded as one of the most innovative and significant photographers of the mid-20th century who worked in the American modernist tradition alongside other esteemed practitioners, such as Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, and Ansel Adams.
“In the age of the Internet and social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, it is all too easy to overlook the foundational aspects that go into creating such superb photographic impressions,” says University of Maryland Art Gallery Assistant Director Taras W. Matla. “For the key traits of a master photographer and printer are, after all, someone who truly understands, quite intimately, the full range and technical capabilities of the artist’s medium.”
This presentation depicts the full range of his oeuvre, from his early experimental work of the 1940s through the mysterious black-and-white imagery of the 1950s and the color/light abstractions of the 1960s, and to his late metaphysical photographs of the 1970s. Revelations is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, in collaboration with the University of Texas Press.
The exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, in collaboration with the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson.
