Four-Part American Photographer Series at Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Senior Center What makes a photographic masterpiece? It might be a perfectly balanced still life, bathed in natural light. It might be a stirring portrait, a captured moment of history or a sublime landscape. Great photographs can intrigue, astound, mystify and move us. Join Cindy Lewis as she explores four American artists of photography in this series, held at the Lake Forest Senior Center. ALFRED STIEGLITZ (1864-1946) American photographer Alfred Stieglitz was instrumental in making photography an acceptable art form during his 50-year career. Dubbed the “patron saint of straight photography,” he had a reputation for overcoming technical problems (photographs in snow and rain and at night). He was also known for his marriage to Georgia O’Keeffe.
ANSEL ADAMS (1902-1984) American landscape photographer Ansel Adams is perhaps the most widely known American photographer. His most important work was devoted to the country’s remaining fragments of untouched wilderness, especially in national parks and other protected areas of the American West. He was also a vigorous, outspoken leader of the conservation movement.

DOROTHEA LANGE (1895-1965) An American documentary photographer, Dorothea Lange was best known for her Depression-era photographs that helped humanize the tragedy of the Great Depression. Her insightful, compassionate photographs of disadvantaged Native Americans and interned Japanese-Americans during World War II have exerted a profound influence on the development of modern documentary photography.
MARGARET BOURKE-WHITE (1904-1971) Margaret Bourke-White was an American photojournalist who was the first woman photojournalist for Life magazine, the first female war correspondent and the first woman to work in combat zones in World War I. Many of her photo essays are classics, such as the Louisville flood and its victims, the liberation of the Nazi death camps and the poverty of India and Pakistan.
