Someone over on photo.net's Nature forum pointed out an interesting review of the "AA at 100" show; you can read the review at http://www.theatlantic.com/issues/2002/07/brower.htm The review is by Kenneth Brower (David's son), who hung out a lot at AA's place when KB was young (and even lived there for awhile). He takes "AA at 100" curator John Szarkowski to task for both the print selection of the show and for Szarkowski's analysis of Adams' work. Brower even manages to get in a few digs at postmodern photography along the way ("blurry, empty hipness," as I recall). Raises some provocative questions about "intent," especially in light of collectors' preference for photographers' early prints: Szarkowski likes AA's earlier, less contrasty, small prints; Brower likes AA's later, more Wagnerian, larger prints). Also good musings about whether Eastern urban critics can understand goals of Western landscape photography. Well worth reading, ideally BEFORE commenting on it below(!).
