A Tribute to Don Worth (1924-2009), Influences and the Influenced

A Tribute to Don Worth (1924-2009), Influences and the Influenced - Photographs by Ansel Adams, Ruth Bernhard, Wynn Bullock, Mark Citret, Imogen Cunningham, Lyle Gomes, Leland Rice, Alan Ross, Brett Weston, Edward Weston, Jack Welpott, and Minor White at Scott Nichols Gallery. "...Don Worth was a quiet presence in the bay area for over 60 years, capturing the illusive and ethereal landscape, and tropical plants in his award winning garden. Worth's large format photographs — made, generally, with large format cameras — have an incisive clarity and quiet meditative mood. Many images involve enormous spaces, and often use the transformative power of fog, mist and other atmospheric conditions. He was a master printer, interpreting his negatives like a musician interprets a musical score. His unwavering and painstaking dedication has resulted in some of the most beautiful masterworks of twentieth century photography, securing an honored place among the California photographers, who influenced him, Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Edward and Brett Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Ruth Bernhard and Minor White." Works by Don Worth at Photography West Gallery.
