Apollo

Masters of Photography: The Garner Collection

San Diego Museum of Art

14 Nov 2020 - 14 Mar 2021

While some museums are closed again due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that remain open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.

Presenting more than 100 photographs from a private collection in San Diego, this exhibition features well-known figures – including Dorothea Lange, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Ansel Adams – alongside lesser-known artists. Spanning a great range of styles and periods, the works have been divided into three sections: ‘Reflections on Nature’ presents landscapes and images inspired by the organic world, themes of city life and society are addressed in ‘Things As They Are’; and ‘Manipulating Reality’ includes works that use abstraction and allegory. Find out more from the San Diego Museum of Art’s website.
