Synopsis: Book by Fels, Thomas
From Library Journal:
From the beginning, photographers working in California seemed to enjoy a distinct and freer social and artistic environment from the rest of the country. The authors attempt to document the special "vision" that resulted. Fels traces the early documentation of the state by Watkins, Muybridge, and others. Therese Heyman discusses the emergence of amateur and fine art photography (1890-1925), which developed a continent's width away from Alfred Stieglitz's dogmatic control on the East Coast. David Travis presents the modernist movement (1925-50), in which he includes the f/64 group and Dorothea Lange's work for the FSA, among more experimental and avant-garde photographers. The book's thesis--that photographers in California were influenced by the state's unique natural resources, geography, society, economy, ethnic and artistic cultures, and history--is amply supported. Edward Weston once said that "everything worth photographing is in California." Were it not for these images' poor reproduction here, we could easily be convinced. Recommended for photography and local history collections.
