Summary
"From rare daguerreotypes of gold prospectors to Edward Weston's intimate portraiture, from glamour shots of Hollywood starlets to Dorothea Lange's arresting Dust Bowl imagery, Capturing Light: Masterpieces of California Photography, 1850 to the Present offers a survey of the master photographers who have shaped the consciousness of a state - and America as a whole - for more than a century and a half. Drawn from the extensive collections of the Oakland Museum of California by curator Drew Heath Johnson, these enduring images offer a portrait as diverse as the state itself."--Jacket
