The Quiet Landscapes of William B. Post
June 23 – September 16, 2007
William B. Post is one of America’s most important artists of pictorial photography. He helped establish photography as a fine art at the turn of the twentieth century.
A pioneer in American pictorialist photography, Post composed his elegant and subtle images through soft focus and subtle tonal qualities. His poetic natural scenes and poignant still life images convey those artistic qualities admired in impressionism and Japanese woodblock prints.
