Wynn Bullock
1902, Chicago

Wynn Bullock came into contact with the artistic avant-garde of the Twenties because of his numerous trips through Europe and to Paris. Greatly struck by the Impressionist and post-Impressionist studies into the plasticity of light and its ability to influence the perception of reality, he discovered a passion for photography trough the work of Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy.
Returned to the United States, and settled in California, his meeting with Edward Weston marked a decisive moment in the development of his way of taking photographs, leading Bullock towards new espressive horizons. He began to look on photography as something that goes beyond the object represented, a communication bridge between the inner world of ideas and the outer world of nature. His artistic thought, which was to be re-elaborated over the following thirty years, came to take the semblance of an outright philosophy, in which the image is merely a medium through which to investigate the most mysterious and spiritual aspects of existence.: his photographs, penetrating and enigmatic, serve as visual metaphors of broader ideas, such as the passing of time or the inevitability of death.
