This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast examines the work of three American photographers: Wynn Bullock, Bruce Davidson and Paul Caponigro.

A major retrospective of Bullock’s work is on view at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Curated by Brett Abbott, this week’s first guest, "Wynn Bullock: Revelations" is on view through January 18, 2015. The show — and its excellent catalogue — reveal an artist addressing and creating photographic traditions while innovating in ways that suggest Bullock is an under-recognized pioneer of the use of color in photography. 

Pictured above is Bullock’s Mendocino Coast (1968). On this week’s program, Abbott and host Tyler Green discuss Bullock’s work in Mendocino, and how it followed many other Western photographers who went to Mendocino.

The first artist to go to there was the great Carleton Watkins, who went to Mendocino just after his pictures of Yosemite created a sensation on the East Coast. His A Coast View, Rocks (No. 1), Mendocino County (1863) is above. (This version is in the collection of the Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley, but better prints exist in other institutions.) Note how Bullock was sure to take a different view and with the sea at a different tide level.
