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.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
