Re: Pose: Photographs presents iconic selections from the Monterey Museum of Art’s permanent collection of photography, with an emphasis on compositions of people in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. Ansel Adams’ color photographs of San Xavier Mission depict timeless rituals in a church still active today. Dorothea Lange, known for her familiar images of Great Depression-era families, shows us a tender moment amidst tragedy. Documentary photographer Pirkle Jones, who studied and worked with both Adams and Lange, photographed migrant workers, social movements, and endangered locales. These photographs offer a glimpse into past circumstances that resonate with us today.
