Monte Nagler’s Michigan

May 28, 2005–September 11, 2005

This exhibition features photographs of scenes from the state of Michigan by Monte Nagler, who has been taking photographs of places of majesty and grandeur across the continent and globe professionally for over two decades. A student of the American master photographer Ansel Adams, Nagler’s work not only pays homage to his teacher and the f64 group but also maintains an individual style. This exhibition coincides with the release of a book of Nagler’s Michigan images by the University of Michigan Press, with an introduction by Governor Jennifer Granholm.
