A mid-twentieth century master photographer, Wynn Bullock is best known for his evocative black and white images. Few people are aware that he also created a significant body of color work he called “Color Light Abstractions”.
Featuring the contemporary 44-print traveling exhibit that re-introduces these extraordinarily beautiful and innovative images, the Centre’s show also includes a fine selection of Wynn’s vintage black & white photographs; a representative collection of his images from the Bullock family’s new black & white estate print program; and a small, yet revealing, group of vintage photographs by Wynn’s wife Edna, who began her own notable career as a creative photographer at age 61, a year after Wynn’s death in 1975.
