Born and bred in Los Angeles, the photographer has produced a huge and varied body of work over his 45-year career – moving from black and white to color, and from photographing people to landscapes and abstract details.


San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will feature more than 160 photographs in his first retrospective, that will be on display until 1 January 2017.


San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
MODERN ART MUSEUM, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is a modern art museum located in San Francisco, California. A nonprofit organization, SFMOMA holds an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art, and was the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th-century art. The museum’s current collection includes over 33,000 works of painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, design, and media arts. They are displayed in 170,000 square feet (16,000 m2) of exhibition space, making the museum one of the largest in the United States overall, and one of the largest in the world for modern and contemporary art.

SFMOMA reopened on May 14, 2016, following a major three-year-long expansion project. The expansion more than doubles the museum’s gallery spaces and provides almost six times as much public space as the previous building, allowing SFMOMA to showcase an expanded collection along with the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection of contemporary art.
