This exhibition considers the voyeuristic intimacy of the close-up portrait in thirteen photographs by celebrated photographers Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, John Gutmann, Barbara Morgan, and Edward Weston. Dating from the 1920s to the early 1940s, each striking photograph captures a likeness and the mood set by the subject’s personality. Taken in close proximity  or  cropped  in the darkroom,  they present  their  subjects  in great detail but also allow passages of abstraction  to emerge from  the  clean  geometry of  the compositions.
