Description
As a young man in his twenties, Willard Van Dyke met San Francisco Bay Area photographers Anne Brigman and Edward Weston. Weston became an important mentor and friend while Brigman rented Van Dyke her studio at 638 Brockhurst in Oakland. Van Dyke converted the space into a gallery and the headquarters of a new movement in photography that he helped found, Group f.64, which was dedicated to sharp-focus, un-manipulated photography.
