    “It is my conviction that the darkroom is capable of being, in the truest sense, a visual research lab; a place for discovery, observation and meditation.”

  • In the Presence of Heroes

    In honor of Memorial Day, this week we remember the veterans of our past wars and those serving around the globe today. I will take the liberty of making this personal by beginning this week with a tribute to my father, Louis Scheinbaum, who served in the 79th Infantry Division and landed in Normandy on Utah Beach, D-Day plus six, after the initial invasion. He was the recipient of both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart among other medals.

  • The Language of the Camera Eye: Ansel Adams and Beaumont Newhall

    The contributions of Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984) to further photography’s acceptance as an art form are many. Besides his artistic works, he spent much of his time educating photographers in both the technical aspects of the medium and the formal aspects of image making. His highly technical system of exposure and development called the Zone System offered photographers the ability to control the tonalities in an image to the point that one could turn black to white or white to black. This complex system of understanding exposure and development when using traditional black and white materials liberated photographers from the technical side of things to concentrate fully on the image.

  • Edward Weston: The Photographer and Friends

    During a 1940 visit to Ansel and Virginia Adams in California, Beaumont and Nancy met Edward Weston for the first time. This visit to Edward Weston’s home was the beginning of the Newhall’s lifelong friendship and collaborations with Weston on publications and exhibitions, including his 1946 exhibition at MOMA and the editing and publication of his Daybooks.

    Beaumont Newhall: A Martini

    In the summer of 1980 we visited Willard Van Dyke in his NYC studio. This visit culminated in our inaugural exhibition in October of 1980. During the exhibit we received a note from Willard’s closest friend, Ralph Steiner. Ralph sent us “as a gift” a few of his prints wishing us good luck with the gallery. We wrote him back

  • History of Photography - A Message from Santa Fe

    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    As we all continue to adjust our lives to the realities of the COVID-19 health crises, we hope that you are well and safe.

    While it feels strange to go on as usual, knowing that the usual is so far from what we are living now, we would like to share a bit of photography history with you. Hopefully it will take your mind off social isolating and bring the world of Beaumont Newhall and his peers to you with this wonderful video we just rediscovered.

    History of Photography – A Message from Santa Fe
  • Lynn Geesaman, Laura Gilpin, and Eliot Porter

    It is with great sadness that we tell of the passing of Lynn Geesaman.

    On February 29th the photography community lost a friend. The artist Lynn Geesaman passed away after living at home with dementia for the past 15 years, she was 81. We were honored to be among the galleries that represented her but more importantly Lynn and her husband Don were long time friends. Our visits with them were always filled with lively discussions about art and technique, sometimes politics.  We treasured these visits.
